Garlic Parmesan Roasted Carrots

Garlic Parmesan Roasted Sliced Carrots - This is the best roasted carrots recipe you will find! It's healthy, simple, quick, and easy because they're baked in the oven. Includes rosemary and other herbs. Savory, low carb, and paleo.

We are always on the lookout for good, low carb vegetable dishes because, on my bariatric diet, I eat about 5 ounces of meat with 3 ounces of vegetables for every lunch and dinner. That’s what I eat, day in and day out, and will for the rest of my life. No sugar, and no carbs outside of vegetables and limited fruit. So we need a little variety because plain old steamed veggies get pretty old pretty fast. That’s where this recipe came from. The Parmesan cheese adds some calories to the carrots, but it’s pretty minimal and makes the … Read more

Healthy Onion Dip

This healthy Greek yogurt onion dip is great for veggies, snacks, and chips. You're going to love it with dinners too! Vegetarian recipe.

I originally published this healthy onion dip for dipping with fried pierogies, but I have since enjoyed it with veggies as well. Joe likes it with chips. I have been digging through the archives of my little old blog (all 2,000 posts) over the last couple of weeks, and I found a bunch of recipes buried in old posts. I have been typing them up in my new recipe format this weekend, so that’s why they’ve all published at the same time.

Healthy Baked Falafels Recipe

I love this falafel recipe. We’ve been making them for over ten years. Our kids won’t eat them, but they are great for a date night. We also make them sometimes and nuke some chicken nuggets for the kids. If you make these, you absolutely must make the tzatziki sauce that goes with them. Having them without is like eating plain dry spaghetti noodles. Maybe you like dry spaghetti noodles, but I promise that they’re better with sauce. These are just like that.

Homemade Veggie Dip

homemade veggie dip

My Pap turned 90 earlier this month. Yesterday, most of the children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren went out for dinner in his honor. We went to a restaurant that serves all of the side dishes and appetizers family-style; one of those appetizers was a vegetable tray with homemade ranch dip. It was terrific, the kind of mouth-watering terrific that makes you want to forgo your manners and lick out the whole cup. Not that I would do that, of course. I wouldn’t. Anyway, this particular dip made me think of a dip that I like to make. It’s not healthy, … Read more

Cool Cucumber Salsa

How to make the best cucumber salsa recipe - This simple and easy dip uses crisp, fresh veggies and spicy peppers for the ultimate salsa!

I have a little mirror attached to the rearview mirror in my car. It telescopes and twists and turns so that I can keep an eye on my babe while I’m driving. I picked up our CSA share today, and I set the bag on the back seat as I do every week. This week, when I got in the front seat, I saw something that really made me laugh. I didn’t scold her or take it away because – seriously? The kid grabbed a fresh cucumber out of the bag and starting eating it! It was a parent’s dream. … Read more
