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

Dark Chocolate Fudge, Easy & Healthy

My doctor requested an easy, healthy dark chocolate fudge. Well, here it is, luscious and so quick to make! If you're eating 75% chocolate thinking it's healthy, don't kid yourself. The remaining 25% is probably sugar, definitely not healthy. Pure 100% chocolate is a superfood, one of the healthiest, highest-anti-oxidant

Egg Buyers, Beware

By Jane Barthelemy. You're in the grocery store looking for non-GMO eggs, and it's confusing. What is the truth behind these terms: Free-Range, Organic, Cage-free? Are any of these eggs Paleo? While most have legal meanings, the labels are purposely misleading. For example, did you know that pasture-raised hens may receive up to 30% of their diet in GMO grains? GMO grains are NOT Paleo.

Curried White Bean Dip, No Nightshades

I love this spicy homemade dip! It is filled with luscious flavor and healthy vitamins! Fresh veggies are a colorful and nutritious way to enjoy dips. Today I used sliced yellow beets, turnips, carrot rounds, broccoli, and English peas. I'm skipping chips and crackers as they're low in life force (Qi), high in processed carbs, and nutritional empty.
