No carb, low carb and slow carb - what's the deal with carbs?

There is a lot of confusion around carbohydrates, or carbs for short. Low carb diets, such as the Keto diet are all the rage, but some people are not getting good results with it. What’s up with that? I think one of the reasons is that they are missing a crucial point when it comes to carbs.

Bye bye pasta, hello spaghetti squash

When I work with people who have prediabetes or Type 2 diabetes, the first thing I tell them to do is to cut out simple carbs. These highly processed carbs do not provide a lot of nutrient content and fiber and will therefore spike your blood sugar levels in the shortest time, only to have them crashing again a short while later. But I understand your love for pasta. So here is your veggie alternative - spaghetti squash.

Vegan Burrito Bowl

People often ask me whether I eat keto. The answer is, sometimes. I don’t adhere to one strict way of eating. It hasn’t worked for me. So some of my meals are keto, some are paleo, some are pegan, some are vegan, and some are vegetarian. What they all have in common is the large amount of vegetables. This is paramount and a non-negotiable for everyone, if you ask me.

So today, I have a vegan burrito bowl on the blog. It is absolutely delicious!!! And you won’t even know there is no meat inside this dish. But you could easily make this with meat if you prefer. Just do you, and always listen to your body.

Vegan Taco Filling

I have to admit I love Mexican food!!! Unfortunately, good Mexican food is hard to come by in Mississippi. I just have to be honest, y’all. Once a month, I try to get my taco fix at Food Truck Friday in Jackson, because those are the best tacos in the state in my opinion.

But I also cook plenty of dishes at home that are inspired by Mexican cuisine. I recently made this vegan taco filling. If you’re a true fan of Mexican food, you might be rolling your eyes right now, but I encourage you to give these a try. You won’t even know there is no meat in your taco.

Egg Roll in a Bowl

As I mentioned before, bowl recipes are one of my favorites, because you throw everything together into a bowl and serve it. There is something comforting about it - just me, my bowl and a fork. LOL.
I am a big fan of this one, because I used to love egg rolls but haven’t been able to enjoy them because of my gluten sensitivity. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

The one thing I make every week - shredded chicken

Yup, that’s right. I make shredded chicken every week. It’s so easy to make and so versatile. I can pair it with some veggies, I can throw it in a buddha bowl, or it can go on top of a salad.
Here are 2 ways to prepare it - on the stovetop or in a slow cooker. I am partial to the slow cooker version, because I can just walk away and it works with frozen chicken, too.

Thai Turkey Burger - a new twist on an old classic

Turkey Burgers have been around for a while now. At first they were an alternative to regular beef for folks who were a little more health conscious. However, today we know that it’s not so much about the beef but rather about the quality of the meat. But don’t give up on turkey burgers quite yet. Here is a fresh, new twist you will love.
