Healthy Gourmet, Diabetic-Friendly,  Lower Sodium, Vegetarian


A healthy vegetarian meal. Loaded with flavor and healthy Mediterranean flavors.

Tunisian cauliflower gratin with a chermoula sauce - a delightful blend of parsley, cilantro garlic and lemon juice with a little olive oil. A healthy delicious and flavorful meal. Cauliflower is a superfood that does everything from fighting cancer through cancer stem cell killing sulforaphane compounds to significantly improving blood pressure and kidney function and is also anti-inflammatory and rich in vitamins and minerals.

Artichoke-Lemon Sauce – A healthy zesty artichoke-lemon butter sauce. Artichokes are a superfood in every sense of the word. The phytonutrients in artichokes provide potent antioxidant benefits, and a 2006 study conducted by the US Department of Agriculture and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that artichokes provide greater antioxidant benefits per serving than many other foods traditionally considered to be antioxidant-rich such as dark chocolate, blueberries and red wine. They also lower cholesterol, improve liver function and prevent cancer and protect against free radicals.

Roasted Garlic Marble Potatoes – A simple all-natural complement to any dish, simply potatoes, olive oil and garlic. Potatoes contain a variety of phytonutrients that have antioxidant activity. Among these important health-promoting compounds are carotenoids, flavonoids, and caffeic acid, as well as unique tuber storage proteins, such as patatin, which exhibit activity against free radicals. Unfortunately, often the oils used to cook the potatoes have negative health consequences, which is why we only use olive oil. The main type of fat found in olive oil is monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs). MUFAs are considered a healthy dietary fat. MUFAs may help lower your risk of heart disease by improving related risk factors. For instance, MUFAs have been found to lower total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels. In addition, some research shows that MUFAs may benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, which can be helpful if you have or are at risk of type 2 diabetes.

Honey Roasted Carrots - Carrots are tossed with olive oil and honey in this simple, all natural, and delicious side dish. Apart from being a natural sweetener our honey comes from bees that primarily collect nectar from clovers. Clover honey has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Because of honey's high sugar content, it may seem counterintuitive for diabetics to eat it. However, studies have shown that honey has a beneficial effect on blood sugar levels in diabetics. A 2014 review article published in the "Journal of Diabetes & Metabolic Disorders" reported that several studies have found that honey, when used in conjunction with anti-diabetic drugs, actually improves glycemic control. Suggesting that honey does not affect the body the same way that traditional table sugar does.
