Kohlrabi and Brussels Sprouts are two of literally endless possibilities for this recipe, but they work well because they can be cooked in uniform, bite size pieces that are delicious in the air fryer. If you’ve never tried Kohlrabi, we encourage you to check it out…

Creamy Alfredo-Inspired Sauce

When Wayne was diagnosed with heart disease, we reluctantly resigned ourselves to giving up such treats as classic Fettuccine Alfredo, with its carb-heavy noodles, and the classic sauce made from heavy cream, butter and lots of Parmesan cheese. The fat and sodium content was far in excess of an entire daily recommendation, and too indulgent…

Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin Pie

This delicious “pie” is a great replacement for high-carb noodles or potatoes! Spaghetti squash is high in potassium, vitamins and minerals, and low in carbs.

Heart-healthy Collard Greens

We love hardy greens, like collard greens and kale. It probably has a lot to do with my Mother’s Famous Kale recipe, and her ability to reinvent it to a still-delicious but healthier dish many years ago, when she became more conscious of heart healthy eating.

Chicken fried “rice”

We were shocked when we looked at how much sodium is in most soy sauce. Between that and the reliance on white rice, we decided to remake one of our favorite dishes to use a low-sodium soy sauce and “cauliflower rice” instead of the traditional kind.
