Hi-Protein, Low Carb Breakfast Cookies!

High-protein, low-carb, and filled with whole-food nutrition, these scrumptious crunchy cookies are a great grab-and-go breakfast. This recipe makes 20 giant cookies, enough to freeze for a rainy day. A food processor or blender is helpful but not required. Breakfast cookies are a dime a dozen. But they're often loaded with sugars and carbs - the kind that add to your waistline and are guaranteed to spike blood sugar. So, to satisfy my own curiosity, I compared the nutrition facts of a ...

Kashmiri Curry Chicken Tenders

This exotic dish will warm you deep inside. I love tantalizing Asian spices like turmeric, coriander, and Thai ginger. Easy to prepare, just marinate the chicken, roll in coconut flakes, and bake until crispy! And it tastes absolutely divine with my No-Peanut Sauce! The secrets to its flavor are Turmeric and Galangal, also called Thai ginger. Galangal is somewhat spicier than regular ginger root and gives the flavor a tantalizing kick. You can find Galangal in Asian markets, in the ...

You can slice the chicken breast into nuggets, or use pre-cut chicken tenders. Makes about 30 nuggets. Serves 4. ...

Vary the recipe according to your taste, your diet, and ingredients you have on hand. The basic idea is to wrap foods in a leaf, with an amazing Asian sauce. If you order this in a Thai ...
