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

Chocolate-Pumpkin-waffles

Chocolate Pumpkin Sour Cream Waffles

The rich, mellow flavor of pumpkin blends beautifully with chocolate.

These babies are Paleo, gluten-free, and grain-free. They taste decadently luscious, however they're secretly loaded with whole-food nutrition of pumpkin, berries, beets, high-protein almonds, and chia seeds. Ha ha!

Fresh strawberries were calling me, and a few minutes later I was enjoying my delicious shake! Strawberries are high in vitamin C, potassium, folic acid, and fiber. Look for organic strawberries, as they're one of the nasty "Dirty Dozen" foods that absorb larger quantities of pesticides. Going Organic is always safer for your health.
