Today I lead you through how to prepare this flavorful quick meal that is full of plant fiber, protein and good for those following a low carb, Mediterranean lifestyle.
Recipes From My Kitchen
These muffins are full of fiber because I’ve only used whole grains, including fiber-rich & healthy fats-rich coconut and almond flours, as well as flax seed! These are good to make ahead and freeze if needed. They come in handy as an energy-filled after school snack. This recipe makes 12, but you can easily double if you would like to!
Rotis are a staple of the Indian diet but do pack a lot of carbohydrates into a meal. I wanted to come up with a way to add more fiber, protein and good Omega-3 fats to a roti. Here is a version that is hearty and delicious! It does not inflate like a typical wheat roti, but cooks on a traditional tawa (cast iron pan or skillet) flat. Just make sure to cook well on both sides. Enjoy!
Many people are familiar with the benefits of chia seeds, but don’t know how to add it to their diet. This is a delicious & really easy way to enjoy them. Did you know chia seeds originated in South America? They are low in carbohydrates & very high in fiber, unsaturated fats, omega-3 fatty acids & protein. They also provide a good amount of iron, calcium and potassium (beneficial in lowering blood pressure).
I recently discovered an award-winning dietician who has amazing "Desi" recipes and meal prep ideas- she even has a free E-book for download with 25 easy whole food recipes! She is the Desi-licious RD Shahzadi. I wanted to share with you her recipe for Spicy Vegan Peanut Butter Tofu- healthy and delicious.
