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.

Here are some of my recipes. Try them and send me your comments!  Jane

Wild Red Snapper, East Indian Style

This Bengali-inspired fish takes just 15 minutes to make. It's exotic spices taste luscious, and are easy on the digestion. Wild fish is preferable, as most farmed varieties are GMO-fed.

I wanted a special dish using Turmeric,
