We’d love to hear you’re feedback!

Blueberry Lime Mint Fizz

The syrupy sweetness of colas and other sugary drinks can be a challenge for some people to eliminate from their diets. Luckily, there’s an even more satisfying way to get your fizzy fix. Sparkling water, a few favorite fruits, and herbs make a delicious — and much healthier — alternative.

Moroccan Chicken Stew

Rich warm spices and sweet dried fruit make this Moroccan stew an instant favorite. Once you’ve prepped the ingredients, it’s only a matter of letting it cook. A slow cooker makes for even easier prep. Leave in the morning and come home to the sweet and savory aromas of dinner ready to eat.

Grain-Free Pumpkin Spice Muffins

A quick breakfast or the perfect grab-and‑go snack for classroom celebrations, office potlucks, or any occasion that calls for allergen- free treats. Your friends don’t even have to know these muffins are healthy! They’ve been taste-tested by hundreds of kids and adults alike, with rave reviews.

Quinoa Enchilada Casserole

George Brown College culinary students John Loui Ricardo and Julius De Guia wowed us with this tasty casserole from their Always Hungry? book class project. This casserole is quick and easy because components can be made ahead and assembled in a matter of minutes . . . but it tastes like it came from a fine restaurant.

Almond Coconut Macaroons

These fluffy macaroon cookies make a satisfying substitute for the standard sugary version. Add a few dark chocolate chips to create a perfect, homey dessert.

    Dear Dr Ludwig or Chef Dawn

    Is it possible to use Quorn products (links to nutritional details below) as a meat replacement when following your fantastic Always Hungry plan? I am a vegetarian and find I get tired of tofu (and am not a huge tempeh fan). Quorn products are very popular in the UK and being able to use them would open up a whole new world for Always Hungry devotees. Many thanks for your consideration.

    • DrLudwig

      YES. Absolutely fine to use Quorn.

    How do I know which recipe belongs to which phase?

    • DrLudwig

      If it includes grains and starchy vegetables or sweeteners, it is Phase 2. In our newest cookbook, Always Delicious, we have also included variations for other Phases for almost all the recipes. The Phases will also depend on the meal plans you make out of them. Always Delicious also includes Phases 1, 2 & 3 meal plans for the recipes.
