Low-Carb Faux Potato Soup
This is a lower-carb version of potato soup that I created with my 7-year-old daughter for her mother. Both of my children, who eat healthy but can be notoriously picky, loved it. You are replacing potato with turnip, which makes this a very healthy and delicious low-carb, diabetic-friendly meal.
Roasted Cherry Tomatoes with Angel Hair
This is something I threw together one day when I was faced with an abundance of fresh cherry tomatoes and basil from my garden. Delish!
Refreshing Sweet and Spicy Jicama Salad (Vegan)
I made this as a side dish with some grilled basil chicken and spicy Italian chicken sausages; it was perfect! If you don't like spicy food, just cut back on the Thai chiles. My boyfriend and I loved it!
Cheesy Kale Chips
An addictive alternative made with nutritional yeast. Who would have thought that leafy green chips loaded with nutrients could be so addictive? Nutritional yeast is deactivated yeast; it's not alive and has a slightly cheesy flavor which many vegans like to use as a cheese substitute. It can be found at most health food stores and some big-chain grocery stores.
Grilled Chicken Thighs with Mango-Ancho Sauce
Sweet mango and smoky ancho chile are combined to make both a delicious marinade and a sauce for these grilled chicken thighs. This isn't spicy, so the whole family can enjoy it. I like to serve this with cilantro-lime rice.
Garlic Roasted Tomato Spread
This slow-roasted tomato spread makes a tasty addition to any sandwich or a simple appetizer when spread on crostini.
Utokia's Ginger Shrimp and Broccoli with Garlic
Parchment packets filled with shrimp and broccoli florets and seasoned with an Asian-inspired ginger sauce are baked for a delicious and easy-clean-up dinner.

My Big Fat Greek Omelet
If you're low-carbing it, try my spinach omelet with tomato and feta filling. If you thaw the spinach and squeeze it dry the night before, this omelet is very doable even for speedy weekday breakfasts.
