healthy mushroom soup

I just LOVE my healthy soup recipes and this is one of them.  Using wild mushrooms rather than regular button mushrooms adds wonderful flavour to this creamy soup. Try a blend of cremini, porcini or shiitake. If you are trying to avoid alcohol, replace the sherry with an additional 1/2 cup of broth.

This is one of those flax seed recipes that just hits the spot every time.  It only requires a coffee mug and a few ingredients to make the "dough" Very nutritious, high in fibre and low in carbs, its the perfect get up and go breakfast.  Delicious when cut open when piping hot and serve with just a scraping of cream cheese.

Moussaka is predominantly an egg plant (aubergine) based dish popular in the Eastern Mediterranean.  Consisting mainly of minced lamb and veggies. It is almost low carb cooked the traditional way. The only substitution made here is the topping – traditionally, white or Béchamel sauce is used. Using ricotta cheese as a replacement gets rid of the only high carb ingredient!

We all know that we need to avoid sugar but are you eating whole wheat bread?  Whole wheat bread is very high in sugar and eating just two slices is the equivalent of eating a sugary chocolate.  Whole wheat bread has a glycaemic index of 72 while white bread is 69.
