Welcome to Living Lyme's Kitchen
Thank you for taking the time to visit Living Lyme's Kitchen!
Please check back often to see new recipes and additions.
I am thrilled to provide recipes to help get you started in your endeavor
to change your eating habits. The hardest part is beginning. It's
overwhelming when everything you have known is no longer on the list of
usable ingredients. This was particularly difficult for me because I love to cook
and I love to entertain. Every recipe I ever learned from my mother and
grandmother had a secret ingredient: Sugar.
Suddenly, I had to completely rethink everything I did. And at the same time, I
was insistent on making sure that my food still tasted good, was
enjoyable, no one would miss a thing, and it was healthy. This was my
biggest challenge. I quickly learned that if I focused on what I COULD eat, and
got creative in altering recipes, I could still have almost all of my favorite
foods. Bread, of course was out. I just had to deal with that. But, I got used
to it pretty quickly.
The key is to expand your horizons. Try new things. Get creative.
Experiment with different ingredients, spices, herbs, and flavors. Try new meats
and new vegetables. Use as many colors of the rainbow as you can. And get
creative in your plating. Make it look good, too! In time, you will find cooking
can be quite enjoyable. And if it's healthy for the people you serve it to, it
makes it that much better!
I will continue to update this and add new recipes as time goes on. I am
constantly trying new things and learning new techniques. Now that this
website is "done" I can focus on creating more new recipes, so check back
I have also provided links to some wonderful cookbooks. I am certainly open
to suggestions, and I will provide a collaboration of recipes submitted by
readers, too. So, please feel free to send them to me!
I hope that this helps you to find your own creative inner chef. I hope that
you will learn that cooking and eating healthy can be delicious and fun.
If you have a recipe you would like to share, please contact me along with
the name you would like used for credit, and I will add it in (after I try it, of
Here's to good food, good company, and good health! Cheers!
Intro to Living Lyme's Recipes
I encourage you to experiment and try new things. Adjust these recipes to
your taste. If you have a favorite recipe of your own, just alter it to avoid the
bad foods. If you get creative, there are not many things that you can't
I don't show portions on my recipes because different people have
different ideas of serving sizes. Plus, I just never pay attention to that. I try
to cook using whole complete foods. So, if I'm making Butternut Squash soup,
it's however much a whole Butternut Squash makes. Or for Chicken Soup, it's
however much a whole chicken makes. I freeze any leftovers, or make a double
batch for more people. Generally, most of my recipes are between 4 and 6
"servings". Me and my husband eat and have leftovers for lunch, for the most
I also tend not to show times, because I'm just not good at that. When it's
done, it's done. And I just seem to know when to start what.
It is a given that my recipes are using fresh organic produce, and quality
meats that do not contain antibiotics or hormones. For vegetarians, feel free
to substitute vegetable stock and any vegetables and protein sources you
would like into any of my recipes.
