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

Red Rice Pilaf with Mushrooms

On a recent trip to the Himalayas, I was captivated by the rich, nutty flavor of Bhutanese red rice. Since rice is a grain, some folks might say this recipe is not Paleo. I beg to differ. Strong evidence has recently emerged that our humanoid ancestors ate grasses for milleniums, which eventually led to cultivating those grains. And that humans were grinding grains some 32,000 years ago. This evidence is coming out years after the "Paleo Diet" was coined. Great! ...

Cuban Black Beans, Nightshade-free

I learned to love authentic black bean soup in a Cuban cafe on West 72nd street. The deep, dark flavor was indescribably delicious. They knew how to prepare old-fashioned beans, soft, easy to digest.

Recent discoveries show beans to be a MAJOR factor in longevity, and an important source of protein and vitamins ...
