Meatballs with Zucchini Ribbons

This dish is not only delicious, it’s also healthy, protein-rich, and pretty simple to make! Zucchini is a staple in many bariatric and low-carb eating plans, and meatballs are always a great way to get in protein in perfect portions. 

*NOTE – I use whole wheat bread crumbs in this recipe. If you are completely low-carb/gluten […]

Retribution Stew

Because Jen’s Dad, brother, and daughter are all hunters, we always end up with enough venison to last almost a full year by the end of deer hunting season. Paired up with savory winter veggies such as sweet potatoes and parsnips, it delivers a hearty, soul-satisfying stew. Don’t let the venison scare you away, though. […]

Jen’s Zucchini Lasagna

This is a little different in the way of recipes. This particular recipe is for a single serving, so there’s going to be a lot of “pre-prep” going on. For example, slicing the zucchini and browning the sausage would be done ahead. You can, of course, do this in larger batches, but the proportions we […]

As Seen On: Be My Valentine

If you don’t hunt or don’t have access to venison, a great substitute is beef or lamb – this recipe also works great with pork or poultry, though, so don’t feel like you have to limit yourself to red meat!
