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

Zucchini Pasta Alfredo with Chicken

I love Italian food, especially when it’s pasta! But why eat high-carb spaghetti that’s nutritionally empty? Zoodles are SO 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 some people can’t tolerate. This delicious Paleo recipe uses nutritional yeast and lemon to give a cheese flavor that's dairy-free. It uses 1 can (1 ¾ cups) of thick full-fat coconut milk instead of cream. Hooray! For cooking ...

Luscious Lemon Yogurt Cheesecake

A taste of sunlight! Everybody loves this creamy dessert, without even knowing about its cancer prevention qualities, because of the invigorating lemon flavor, revitalizing honey, and crispy nut crust. As you may know, I study the work of German physician, Dr. Johana Budwig, a 7x Nobel Prize nominee for her research and 95% success rate healing cancer with Omega-3 essential fatty acids. Dr. Budwig was a brilliant biochemist and physician who discovered the roots of cancer, much to the chagrin of the food industry. She formulated high-protein recipes that heal it using blended yogurt and flax oil. In ...

The earthy flavor of adzuki bean with vibrant lime and basil make this a zesty bean salad, delicious at room temperature or slightly warm.

Pecan Sandies, Paleo Style

I was once addicted to those crisp, melt-in-your-mouth store-bought Pecan Sandies. I'd eat the whole bag in one sitting. Fortunately these babies are WAY better than those.
