Low Fat Organic Rotisserie Chicken

healthy eating rotisserie roasted chicken low omega 6This low fat rotisserie chicken is one of my favorite recipes.  Not only are whole organic chickens more affordable than other organic meats, this recipe is quick and you can even get a quick chicken broth out of it too!  The trick is using the Nuwave oven.


Healthy Eating at Home: Nuwave Oven

nuwave oven health eatingOne of the hardest diet regimens that I've been on is the ketogenic diet.  This involves cutting down carbohydrates to about 20g carbs a day, and mainly eating protein and fats.

Not only was it difficult with the low blood sugar, but on top of that, I needed to cook a LOT of protein throughout the day!  That was when we got a Nuwave oven to help cook all the meat.

Now, I make a batch of these every week! These marinated mushrooms are great on salads, or as a side dish to any meal!

Healthy Snacking: Kettle Chips Real Sliced Potatoes

Potato chips are one of my guilty pleasures.  When I started the low omega 6 diet, I realized that most of the chips  have a ton of omega 6 fats.
Chips are usually fried in large amounts of sunflower or safflower oil, which are high in omega 6 (4g or 10g omega 6/ Tbs, respectively).

Freekeh Mediterranean Salad

 In looking for healthy grains that are low glycemic, I found freekeh.  It's an ancient grain that is readily available at Costco (Village Harvest Organic Freekeh).

An added benefit of this dish is that I have fun saying "I'm eating freeky" :-)
