Low Carb Baked Stuffed Zucchini Egg Roll

Wow your guests with this simple to make low carb baked stuffed zucchini egg roll that takes no time at all to prepare.   It’s time to harvest zucchini and many of you might find that you have an abundance of it since it grows so beautifully in Ontario. Organic produce is best when you can grow it yourself but if you don’t have the option visit a local organic farm or shop the grocery store.

Creamy Bacon Tomato Salad (Low-Carb)

ORGANIC PRODUCE HAS SOME OF THE BEST FLAVOURS IN THE WORLD   I wasn’t sure if I should call this recipe Tomato Bacon Salad or Bacon Tomato Salad so I went with both only because there’s lots of cherry tomatoes and tonnes of bacon!

How to Save Money on Fresh Produce- Fruits and Vegetables: The Grocery Game Challenge #2 Apr 13-19, 2015

Unless you’ve grown up on a farm or had parents who ventured outside of the supermarket you might believe this is the only place to stock up on fresh produce. It’s not as there are many other ways you can enjoy the luxuries of fresh produce as long as you are willing to do the work or shall I say, the homework. According to the Canada Food Guide this is what YOU should be eating in terms of fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. Fruits and vegetables are food groups that you don’t want to remove from your diet just because you think they are too expensive. Our bodies need nutrients that come from produce that help us stay healthy.
