GOLDEN "RICE" PUDDING (paleo, keto)

GOLDEN "RICE" PUDDING (paleo, keto)

I absolutely love this “rice” pudding recipe.  Not only does it taste amazing, but it’s grain-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, low-carb, and suitable for paleo and keto diets.  Better still, it’s super easy to make and packed with micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants) as well as fibre, healthy fats, and protein!  Gotta love a simple dessert that's healthy enough to serve for brekkie!

SWEET POTATO DAL (DHAL)

My husband's family is East Indian, so I have been eating flavourful lentil-based stew or dhal for well over 2 decades.  Throw-in some sweet potato, and you have my kinda winter comfort food.  It may not look fancy, but it is super tasty and satisfying.

This dhal is made with red lentils, carrots, sweet potatoes, onion, ginger, turmeric, and other wonderful spices traditionally used in Indian cooking.

I really love this protein and healthy fat-boosted “detox” blend of grapefruit, kefir, cilantro, spinach & ginger.  It’s tangy and citrusy, a bit bitter, sweet and spicy (like me!), and maybe just a little bit wild with that cilantro thrown in, am I right?!?
