Immunity-boosting Low Carb Dessert Recipe

Need an immunity-boosting low carb dessert recipe to fight this upcoming cold season?

I can’t believe that this year has flown by so quickly and it’s now November. With LA’s fluctuating temperature changes, it can feel like fall during the morning, summer during mid-day, and winter during the late evenings. Because of the rapid weather changes, it’s so easy to get sick. One way to boost our immunity systems is to add the Algenist’s Irish Moss supplement to our meals. Here’s what it contains and why it’s helpful for us:

Red Marine Algae & Irish Moss – fight the imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body

Vitamin C & E – supports your body’s immune system

For an easy dessert recipe, try my immunity-boosting low carb meringue. Check out the recipe below:

Ingredients:

3 egg whites

1 tsp of cream of tartar

1/8 cup of Algenist’s Irish Moss

1/2 cup of monk fruit sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200F
  2. Place egg whites and cream of tartar into a clean mixing bowl
  3. Whip these ingredients together with a mixer (medium speed) until it’s white and begins to form soft peaks.
  4. Slowly add monk fruit sugar (1/4 tsp at a time) into the same bowl while the mixer is on. Whip until the meringue until it is glossy and has stiff peaks.
  5. Carefully sprinkle Algenist’s Irish Moss supplement into the bowl and fold in all the ingredients with a spatula.
  6. Transfer the meringue into a clean cake decorating pouch with a metal tip and create circular treats (approx. 3” in diameter and 2” in height) by squeezing the bag; you can make smaller meringues if you’d like.
  7. Bake in the oven at 200F for 2 hours (do not let it turn brown). I suggest waiting a few hours before serving it so it will be crispy and airy.
  8. Enjoy! Serving size for 4.

Savory Post-Thanksgiving Breadless Sandwich (Low Carb)

So you know that feeling of eating too much during the holidays but not wanting to throw out the delicious leftovers? Yes, I’ve been guilty of that too. But this year, I wanted to share a recipe that can include that delicious turkey from last night into a more waistline friendly meal. This is what I call my Post Thanksgiving Sandwich. Think of a typical sandwich minus the carb loaded breads. Instead, I substitute bread slices with tofu slices. And bonus… these sliced tofu keeps the sandwich together as well as absorbs all the flavors from the ingredients.

Would you give this a try? Comment below to let me know 🙂

**The recipe below is my own and partnered with House Foods with this sponsorship

*Serving size 2

  • 16 oz of House Foods Extra Firm Tofu (sliced into 4 pieces about 4 oz each)
  • 8-10 pieces of butter lettuce
  • 4 slices of vine ripen tomatoes (sliced 1/4″ – 1/2″ thick)
  • 4 slices of turkey from leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner (6 oz)
  • 4 slices of spicy pepper jack cheese (4 oz)
  • 1 tbsp of salted butter
  • 2 tbsp of Fig (cranberry) jam

Directions

  • Slice the House Foods Tofu so it resembles 4 slices of bread
  • Pat tofu slices completely dry with a paper towel; this process is important since it will help make the slices more crispy like toasted bread.
  • Set large non-stick sauté pan on medium heat. Then melt the small sliver of butter or spritz a bit of cooking spray before carefully placing the tofu slices on the pan. Cook for about 10-15 min on each side or until you see that it’s a golden brown color; you can also add a pinch of salt to the tofu slices as an option. Set aside on a paper napkin when done.
  • To stack the sandwich, start with one slice of cooked tofu, add 2-3 pieces of lettuce, 2 slices of tomatoes, 2 slices of the spicy pepper jack cheese, and 2-3 oz of sliced turkey. Top of the sandwich with one more tofu “bread” slice; add 1 tbsp of fig (cranberry) jam on the top tofu slice (optional). Repeat directions to make the second sandwich and serve.

Enjoy!
