Karl’s Weekday Sukiyaki with a Noom Twist

Wife Jan and I were wandering around the local Japanese market and she said it had been a long time since I had made sukiyaki. This is one of the dishes my mother, Claudia, would make as I was growing up. Since I was making this as a weekday dinner, I pared down my original recipe to feed three people—you may also increase the number and kinds of vegetables to feed more if necessary.

Karl’s Noom Friendly Crab Cakes with Middle Eastern Salsa

My wife Jan requested crab cakes for dinner. She has started on the Noom diet, and I am adapting some of my recipes to fit the new restrictions. While there is nothing really restricted on this diet, some foods are better than others—you are meant to fill up on “green foods” with some limited “yellow foods” to keep you happy and satisfied. Finally, there are “red foods”—foods like white flour and sugar that are to be severely limited in this diet. Looking for Noom recipes for crab cakes I got some ideas, but I was not satisfied with any that I found. I decided to adapt my own recipe to be more Noom friendly.

Karl’s Moroccan Chicken Soup

Wife Jan has started on the Noom diet, which is very into soups. While there is nothing really restricted on this diet, the trick here is to fill you up with water rather than fattening meats and starches. Today, she suggested that I make their Moroccan chicken soup.

Karl’s Buckwheat Dutch Baby with Blueberries

Wife Jan has started on the Noom diet, and she thought that my original recipe for Dutch Babies was too much of a “red food”—foods like white flour and sugar that are to be severely limited in this diet. While there is nothing really restricted on this diet, some foods are better than others—you are meant to fill up on “green foods” with some limited “yellow foods” to keep you happy and satisfied. To please her, I replaced some of the white flour with buckwheat and the sugar with agave nectar, both much lower on the glycemic index.
