Brussels Sprouts - Mediterranean Style

Brussel Sprouts are packed with all sorts of vitamins and nutrients.That is not a selling point for many members of my family. So, I turned into a Mediterranean style dish with olives and feta cheese.This was an instant hit with everyone and now, we make it at least once a week. It is very simple to make and takes no time at all....more

Gluten Free Blueberry Crisp

There isn't much to say about this crisp other than YUM! I've had many crisps in the past and the whole concept is that they are lighter and less caloric than cobblers and why is there still a stick of butter and nearly a cup of sugar added to these crisps? Exactly. But not this one! I wasn't joking when I said it's so healthy you can eat it for breakfast. The ingredients are nourishing to give you fuel for the day or to have as a treat after dinner! Simple ingredients, one dish and voila! Ours lasted for 1 day...see if you can make it last!...more

Turkey Chili with a twist

Even when it's 85+ outside, I am still making this recipe. Comfort food is comfort food and it has no season. At least to me. This Turkey Chili recipe is modified from an online recipe I found. Although Chili isn't the worst thing you can eat, you can make it bad. I see you adding them 20 saltines and pounds of shredded cheddar. Bet you wont even need them with this recipe! Turkey Chili ...more

Nourishing Strawberry Waffles with Homemade Strawberry Sauce

As much as I would love to daintily wake up every morning and serve my husband these waffles hot on a tray with flowers and coffee. Lets be real--we never stop. Most mornings consist of running around chasing dogs, eating a protein bar and maybe, just maybe, pouring a bowl of cereal before we're out the door with a to-go cup of coffee. However, when we do want to have a special morning, maybe a quiet Saturday morning or a day off for the both of us, this is one of our favorite go-to's. I love making these waffles because they are filling without the guilt....more

Spinach Quinoa Cakes

I have to admit, I was slightly skeptical about making this recipe because I had never tried Quinoa before and didn't like the taste of it when I boiled some up. That being said...these cakes are delicious and packed in protein at 11 grams! The calorie count is a little high because Quinoa is high in calories, but they are so filling that one cake is enough!...more

Is Bacon Bladder Friendly For Patients With Interstitial Cystitis or Bladder Pain

In the IC Diet Guidelines, fresh, organic meats are always recommended over preserved meats such as salami or bologna. Why? Because preserved meats usually contain a variety of chemicals and additives, such as sodium nitrite, that could irritate the bladder. But, what about bacon? Is “uncured” vs. “cured” bacon more IC friendly? It can be but there are some pros and cons....more
