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

All About Nuts, Soaking and Toasting for Health

By Jane Barthelemy. I love almonds, pecans, and walnuts. Nuts are a true Paleo food, gluten-free, rich in proteins, healthy fats, and enzymes. However many people have difficulty digesting nuts. And tree-nut allergies are becoming more common. How can we enjoy nuts without digestive problems? Like all seeds and grains, nuts often contain natural coatings that are digestive inhibitors (lectins, saponins, protease inhibitors, and phytates) that make the nuts slightly bitter and more  difficult to digest. However, soaking nuts in salt water neutralizes the enzyme ...

Avoiding GMO’s? Here’s a Guide.

By Jane Barthelemy. Our health movement is now mainstream! So what is step #1 for your health? Well, I'd say taking care of the food you eat is pretty high. With so many processed ingredients, one of the easiest things to slip through the cracks is GMO's! You're thinking of a chicken salad for lunch? Think again – the chicken will be GMO-fed, and the dressing has GMO canola or soy oil. How about a beef burrito? Nope, the beef ...

My favorite Italian dessert is also the easiest. This is called torta di mele morbida (soft apple tart), Paleo-adapted from my amazing friend Giorgia Pistellato in Venice. Not a fancy dessert - it's is an everyday sweet with apples and cinnamon that always pleases (and reminds me of my former opera career in Italy.) This Apple Torta is a perfect choice for beginning bakers and children, simply because it NEVER FAILS! A luscious last-minute recipe like this can be a ...
