Low Carb Food Shopping and Supporting Local Business: Smits and Cow Farm

This past weekend after working one of our weddings with Vancouver Mobile Makeup in the valley we drove by an adorable sign simply saying “Cheese and Pork” at a farm on Lickman Road in Chilliwack, so obviously we HAD to stop!

Low Carb Asian-Inspired Chicken Wing Recipe

Today’s food inspiration takes the flavours from traditional Chinese barbecued meats to an easy, four-ingredient dish that can be either your main dish at home or taken to a party and shared. I’ve used this marinade on wings, but you can easily use this for other chicken parts, as well as fish, turkey, pork, or beef as well.

Low Carb Tea Scone Recipe

One of the things I started to miss first when going low carb almost a year and a half ago was my afternoon scones. The sweet scones with devon cream and jam were one of my favourite indulgences with tea in the afternoon, and the savoury cheese scones you can split in half and top with butter or even make into an egg/bacon/ham muffin for breakfast were a staple in my life.

Now thanks to the magic of Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour, those of us on the low carb diet can stay on plan and have a delicious substitute to enjoy.

Low Carb Jam: JJ’s Country Cooking

Since moving to the small suburb of Ladner at the beginning of the year, I’ve really enjoyed having a quieter, more productive lifestyle. The sense of community here is fantastic, and I’ve been able to reconnect with long-time friends more. Today’s awesomeness was visiting the Ladner Village Market for my first time with my buddy Danika, who planned our morning route for us.
