Low carbs Twist on Cannelloni!

I’ve recently discovered that I can cook. With the right instructions and motivation, I can actually kick some butt in my kitchen. Now, people who don’t know me should know that I’ve never liked cooking in my entire life. The whole 30 years I’ve been on this planet, I have not found any passion for cooking, until now.

After I joined Weight Watchers, I started looking for recipes on the website. And that’s when I realized I was good at cooking and that I thrived on eating healthy, but most importantly, wanted to teach my son how to eat healthy.

Aaden loves pastas. The more spagetti on his plate, the better. So I started looking for alternative and found this amazing recipe! Behold on Beware, Weight Watchers’ Eggplant Rollatini with Tomato-Basil Sauce!

My cutting station is pretty small, but I got everything working!

I actually burnt my first batch... Make sure the eggplant slices are thick!

Out of the oven and ready to be devoured!

This recipe is Aaden Approved!

 

I wasn’t sure about the carbs since the WW system work on points, but I figured around 15 grams. My BG 2 hours after diner? 6.1! (109.8mg!) Is this one of my favourites now? Oh yes it is! And I will definitely make it again for my husband when he comes back!

Monday low carb recipe!

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a nice weekend!

It’s Monday and a new low carb recipe is in for us! And decided I would post one of my son’s favourite dish: Low-Carb Sweet Potato Shepherd’s pie!

Makes 8 portions of 30 grams of carbs each, only!

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 onions
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 can green peas
  • 1 can corn kernels
  • 1 can cream corn
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper

Directions:

  1. Boil potatoes until tender. Mash with milk and 1 tablespoons butter or margarine. Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Saute the onions. Add the ground beef, cook until meat is browned.
  3. Spread a thin layer of potatoes in the casserole dish. Add half the peas and corn, then the ground beef and then the rest of the peas and corn. Top with mashed potatoes.
  4. Dot top with flakes of butter, nutmeg, paprika, salt and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 20 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

I usually add a thin layer of shredded mozzarella cheese on top before baking but you can decide to add or not. Cheese is fatty after all!

Bon app├ętit!

Low Carb Pancakes? YesSir-ee!

I’m always trying to think of new things to cook for my son, especially for breakfast… Oatmeal is starting to be boring to him! (And me, too!) So I decided to go on a recipe hunt this morning while he watched his (high pitched voiced) cartoons. I found the perfect pancake recipe!! And with only 2.4g of Carbs for 2 slices, This is too good (No pun intended) to be true!!! So I thought I would share with you guys, Diabetics and non-diabetics! This also calls for great low carb diet plans! Of course I would recommend you use a low fat butter or replace with margarine, because as most delicious things, it’s fatty! Click Here!

Don’t forget to add fruits! Enjoy and Bon Appetit!
