Low Carb Kale Chips

Standard

In Holland it isn’t easy to find Kale as a bunch. It is sold just about everywhere, but then the kale is shredded because most of the time it’s eaten in ‘stamppot’, which means together with potato mash and sausage.

But in one store in Rotterdam I found some organic kale, so I bought this to try making kale chips again. Last time they didn’t turn out great. This time they did!

The recipe:

Some kale (I just used 50 grams)

Olive oil

salt.

Preheat the oven on 250F/120C.

Wash and dry the kale. Sprinkle oil over the kale and make sure all the leaves are covered. Use your hands.

Lay the kale in a single layer on an oven plate covered with parchment paper. Sprinkle with salt (not too much, I did this I am sad to say) and put into the preheated oven.

After 20 minutes check how they are doing. If they are crispy, they are ready! If not, leave them for another 5 minutes.

Enjoy!

The Unwich – Breadless Sandwich…

Standard

A very inventive way to eat lunch without needing bread or a bun, is by making a so called. Unwich. A sandwich, but without the bread. Take some big leaves of lettuce and put anything you like in between, and there you have it! I have Always seen bread as a necessary means to transport what’s on it, so I like it!

This is an unwich I made today:

First try: Zucchini Noodles!!

Standard

After reading a lot about this low-carb and very healthy alternative to spaghetti, I bought a julienne peeler and made my very first serving of zucchini noodles!

In Holland zucchini’s are called Courgette, so my husband immediately came up with the name “Courgetti”, the combo of courgette and spaghetti. Not bad.

Anyway, because my husband and kids are away to the North of the country until friday (!) I have the opportunity to try things.

I lived on juices for almost three days, but yesterday evening it was time for some solid – but healthy – food.

On the internet people say the zucchini noodles taste just like spaghetti. Well, they do!

After I used my new peeler to make the noodles, leaving the core of the zucchini untouched, I cooked the noodles in boiling, salted water for about 3 minutes and I drained them.

Meanwhile I made a sauce of tomato and veggie-meatballs, and put this on top of the noodles. Yum!!

Only thing I didn’t do was press or squeeze out any excess fluid; this is neccesary as it turned out, I had to pour out excess water after plating up the dish.

Anyway, a lowcarb, low calorie alternative to pasta!!

My lunch for today

Standard

My Bentobox makes me so happy!! It always was a big hassle to bring everything that I wanted to eat to work, especially because I am trying to eat low carb and glutenfree if possible.

Today I had lettuce with goats cheese, sundried tomatoes, black olives and pommegranate seeds. Yummie!

Because of this box I think of what I am going to have for lunch the next day which makes me look forward to my lunch all morning!

I am already thinking about what I am having for lunch the next time!!

Oopsies?!

Standard

A few days ago I came across a recipe for “Oopsies”… Because I am trying to eat less wheat, I decided to give this recipe a try. It only consists of eggs and some cream cheese, and a little baking powder.

The end result looks good, the taste is… Well, ok. Looks like bread but definitely isn’t. Obviously. Without wheat.

But, as an evening snack with f.e. Hummus: Great!
