Just look at the photo once again…yes, it is THAT GOOD!     Characteristics of an amazing meatloaf recipe   A meatloaf recipe has to be moist, flavourful and paired up with a nice homemade sauce or gravy. If I had it my way a nice side of buttery mashed potatoes but these days we opt for something healthier such as a garden salad. These days most people are looking to cut the carbs and opt for smarter choices such as vegetables, fruits and proteins. Do you ever just have one of those days where you come home and the last thing you want to do is cook a big meal? We have them often especially with an almost 3-year-old running around the house. Although we like to use our crock-pot to ease into a quiet evening of family time there are times where we […]

A ketogenic diet (keto) is a very low-carb diet, which turns the body into a fat-burning machine. It has many potential benefits for weight loss, health and performance, but also some potential initial side effects. A ketogenic diet is similar to other strict low-carb diets, like the Atkins diet or LCHF (low carb, high fat). These diets often end up being ketogenic more or less by accident. The main difference between strict LCHF and keto is that protein is restricted in the latter. Get ready folks it’s party food time but this round is for the low-carb foodies who want to tuck into the snack table with options. Low-carb keto snacks […]

Creamy Radish Soup With Melted Mozzarella

MOVE OVER AND MAKE SPACE CAULIFLOWER BECAUSE RADISHES ARE THE NEW POTATO OF CHOICE FOR LOW CARB FOODIES.   Yes you read that right, Creamy Radish Soup with melted gooey mozzarella and loaded with triple brie and cream cheese. Very cheesy and the perfect low carb soup for breakfast, lunch or dinner. As you can see radish soup takes on a light pink colour and packed full of heart-warming nutrients. If you don’t care for the strong taste of raw radishes but love potatoes I assure you that you’ll love radish soup. Radishes are a root vegetable after all. Before radish soup came into our lives as what started as a laughable idea we only ate them raw or baked with bacon fat, which is delish by the way! We’ve also tossed whole red radishes into pasta sauce, chili or other recipes that typically would contain potatoes. Since Mrs. CBB doesn’t eat potatoes radishes became her new potato of choice. You can even make mashed radishes as you can mashed cauliflower and they both taste like mashed potatoes. Lots of mashing going on! I did not believe Mrs. CBB that radishes tasted like potatoes once roasted as they have a […]
