Jane’s Recipes

DSC_2602 - Version 2

My recipes are all original. Every one! Food should bring you energy, clarity and JOY! Perhaps my biggest discovery is how to make sweets that don’t elevate blood sugar or cause weight gain. We believe desserts are BAD for us (and most of them are)! However sweets can be HEALTHY! In an epidemic of sugar-related diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer, THIS is the solution: Use low-carb, original, unprocessed ingredients. There’s no need for deprivation. Here are some of my recipes. Try them and send me your comments!  Jane

13 Fabulous Birthdays, Paleo & Gluten-free!

By Jane Barthelemy. When people invite me to birthday parties, I always ask to bring the cake. Oh yes, I love to cook, but I also LOVE TO EAT. Most cakes are simply not safe to eat - they contain sugars, processed ingredients, and flours that make people sick. Commercial or cake-mix cakes may look beautiful, but they have no life force or nutrition in them.

Dark Chocolate Avocado Fudge!

The easiest fudge I ever made. And oh my! The most delicious by far. With a velvety smooth texture and crunchy nuts, it's quick to make as there's no heating or baking - just mix and chill.

I confess, it took me 8 tries to make a vegan quiche worthy of sharing with you. This Paleo-vegan recipe has a wonderful flavor and just the right consistency. The texture is similar to traditional quiche - except it's egg-free! Instead of eggs, blended cashews, coconut, and grain-free flour bind it together.

dark-choc-macaroons-1

Zucchini Pasta Alfredo with Chicken

I love Italian food, especially when it’s pasta! But why eat spaghetti that’s high-carb and nutritionally empty? Zucchini noodles are easy to make on a mandoline slicer or vegetable spiralizer. Traditional Pasta Alfredo is made with heavy cream and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, a dairy load my body can’t tolerate.

Sweet toasted sesame seeds make these squares crunchy with a hint of Asian flavor. Mild tasting hiziki seaweed makes these nutrient-dense and irresistibly scrumptious.

wild-salmon-cauliflower-hash

Wild Salmon Cauliflower Hash

I love this savory hash for its luscious contrast of textures—crispy cauliflower and tender, moist salmon. It’s very quick to make in 15 minutes or less, low in carbs, and a great use for leftover salmon. You can add a fried egg on top for a crowning touch, although it’s just as good without.

Today I needed a refreshing bite of lemon & ginger to balance a hot, muggy day. These bars have a zingy citrus flavor, plus they're raw and alive with powerful anti-oxidant lemon nutrition. In Chinese medicine lemon is cooling -- yes I get it. And ginger moves Qi, the vital force in the body

Chocolate cravings were stronger than usual today. I saw hemp nuts, chia seeds, coconut, and blueberries sitting on the counter. These bars were in my tummy soon after - with no baking needed.
