News from Chef Barrae!
My dearest friends and loyal followers,
It has been far too long since I posted here last and I apologize for that. Life has been full, filled and productive. I have completed my Gratitude Training and now get to use new and powerful tools in my life. I have begun several exciting new projects that are becoming fruitful and are definitely fun!
I get to share one of my favorite new projects with you RIGHT NOW! Chef Barrae, Inc. has a new spin off company called Sauceress Brand Fine Condiments. I am currently producing fine, handcrafted artisan condiments. There is nothing like these out there anywhere! These condiments are excellent for barbecues, marinades, dipping or slathering. These multi-purposed condiments are all natural, vegetarian, gluten and dairy free, contain no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives and NO ADDED SUGAR! Currently, I am offering three different condiments, Bimini Bacchanal, Thaigress and HabaHot. Each one of these condiments is made of over three dozen different ingredients, including at least six different chiles, and have smoky, deep, rich layers of flavor and heat. These condiments are not just about heat. They are able flavor. One of the most satisfying parts of this for me personally is that these condiments are all LOW IN CARBOHYDRATES. I would not have it any other way. Many of you know my recipes and have made them your own. There are testimonial after testimonial posted on this blog. I can absolutely guarantee that all of you will fall in love with these condiments.
Here is a brief description of each for you to consider.
Bimini Bacchanal is what I love to call a blend of tropical sweet and tropical heat. It is a complex blend of citrus, mango, herbs, island spices and dried chiles. This condiment is rated mild to medium heat. It will liven up anything from chicken to seafood to pork to beef. It is also fantastic as a baste for grilled fruit.
Thaigress is my personal favorite. In this you taste layers rich in smoke, molasses, chocolate, spices and herbs and this sauce gets its heat and sweet flavor from Thai chiles. This condiment is rated medium to bold heat. It pairs very well with chicken wings, either to baste or dip or both, pork, seafood like salmon, or slathered on burgers. Try this as a great dipping sauce for those jicama fries you might be making from my recipe.
HabaHot as the name implies gets its heat from habanero chiles as well as jalapeno, Serrano and more. It has an incredible depth of flavor, rich in aromatic spices, fresh herbs and a deep smoke and has flavor not just heat. This condiment is rated medium to bold heat. It is perfect as a barbecue sauce to grill beef or chicken for your low carb tortillas, is awesome on roast pork, fantastic on shrimp and so much more. This sauce will perk up any dreary, same old-same old dish you make.
So, now you might be wondering, "How do I get these delicious condiments?" and "Are they expensive?" The answer to both questions is simple. I have set up a new website, a blogspot site, equipped with PayPal for your convenience to accept any major credit or debit card. These condiments are priced right at $6.00 for a "small" (8 ounce bottle), $11.00 for a "large" (16 ounce bottle) or 2 large bottles for $20.00. We will ship these fine condiments anywhere in the USA. The shipping and handling is more than reasonable at $4.95. So, my friends, give this a try. You will not regret it one bit. In fact, you will have found something brand new, packed with amazing flavor that is low in carbs and has no added sugar. Please visit my website and check it out. Read the lists of ingredients for these condiments and see for yourself.
Please look for us on Facebook and Twitter under Sauceress Brand.
Thank you one and all. I cannot wait to hear from you and get your feedback on my new condiments!
In gratitude,
Chef Barrae

At this point in my career, in order for me to better serve my clients, community, family and friends, I am involved in a series of workshops called Gratitude Training. Gratitude Trainings are transformational personal development workshops that emphasize the importance of Gratitude. 
What are some of the benefits from participating in the Gratitude Training:

  • Become more effective in your life by mastering the power of choice.
  • See how committed action will create your desired results.
  • Be grateful for everything in your life. No matter what!
  • Experience living without fear and anxiety. Dare to Risk.
  • Create greater intimacy, connection and openness in every relationship.
  • Be the change you want to see in the world and experience social change as your own life transforms.
Perhaps you can now see and understand the importance that this training will have on the work that I not only am currently doing but in the work that I plan on doing for my foundation next year.

I am presenting you with a link below. This link goes to my Indigogo account where you can make a donation for my education. You will receive a perk based on the amount that you are able to donate.

Thank you so much for your presence and for visiting and reading this. If anything, you will learn a lot about me when you read my story on the link. If nothing else, please read about my journey with Type 2 Diabetes and my escape from certain death.

What a gorgeous good morning this day brings! Hello to all of my subscribers, visitors, friends and family! Much time has passed since my last post here ... please accept my sincerest apologies for that. I have not forgotten anyone or the purpose of this blog for one minute ... I have been quite wrapped up in moving my cause to fight Type 2 Diabetes forward and to reach out and help as many sufferers and prediabetics as I can. Life has been abundant with joy, Love and good health!

Here is some news about what has been going on ...

I have been providing free weight loss seminars in the South Florida area since this past July and have achieved great success in reaching out to many, many people! I simply share my story with everyone, what I did to overcome my suffering both with nutrition and weight loss and through an internal emotional healing process to rid myself of my mindless overeating triggers. To date, I have lost about 210 pounds, am healthy and fit! I am a Complementary and Alternative Medicine practitioner as well now and use what I have learned to help others in the same way these techniques have helped me. I offer private weight loss counselling, locally and nationally, have written a book called, "2-3-4 Weight Loss Solution Manual for Life", which is now available through this blogsite for the first time, and have of late been speaking publically within the heathcare industry about my journey. It is awesome and life is abundant! If you would like more information about any of the services I offer or my seminars please contact me at and I will respond immediately!

As I mentioned, my path has been taking me in the direction of the healthcare industry and I have now offered my seminar at Genesis Community Health, a local healthcare provider in Boynton Beach, Florida, and have been honored to speak on World Diabetes Day at an event by Boerhinger Ingelheim pharmaceuticals in Ridgefield, Connecticut. My journey of reaching out to Type 2 Diabetics has come full circle and I am once again following that path. How amazing it truly is!

I am also very pleased to announce the offering of my book, "2-3-4 Weight Loss Solution Manual for Life" here on this blogsite for the very first time and am so excited to finally do this! It has been well received and has sold world wide now! How thrilling it is for me to share the weight loss Solution I have developed that includes both aspects of balanced nutrition and emotional healing and present it to you! I continue to say, "Eat, live and enjoy life!" and have now added, "Lose weight with Love" to my calling card! I have provided the safety and security of PayPal for your convenience. I am available to answer any questions you may have about The Solution! Please email me anytime!

Thank you all for your continued support and visiting this blogsite! I am honored to serve you all in any way that I can and will continue to do so ...
In gratitude,
Chef Barrae

I have now lost a total of 206 lbs., look and feel great and no longer test for my Type 2 Diabetes. I do not take any medication for blood sugar or blood pressure! I had about a year of private spiritual psychotherapy.  That impacted me so much that I studied Complementary and Alternative Medicine for the next year so that I could learn the techniques and methods that were used with me! Now I use them with my private clients!


I have taken what I so successfully have done and developed an entire weight loss solution! I am offering seminars, webinars, private weight loss counseling and have written books!  The "2 - 3 - 4 Weight Loss Solution Manual for Life" will be available on my website soon and the "2 - 3 - 4 Weight Loss Solution ~ Everyday Cooking" is available now! The cookbook is the first in a series and is available NOW for a special, limited time, discount price! The "2 - 3 - 4 Weight Loss Solution Manual for Life" will be available within a few weeks! Please visit my new website for all the details!

While you are there check out my weight loss progression photographs! Wow! I have gone from a morbidly obese 330 lbs. to a petite 124 lbs! The transformation is incredible and the "2 - 3 - 4 Weight Loss Solution" is why! I have combined the dual approach with my innovative nutrition program and deep internal healing! If you lighten the mind you will lighten the body! I know that I have purged my eating triggers for good! These caused my mindless overeating and the "yo-yo effect" when I tried to lose weight before! This is NOT A DIET! THIS IS A SOLUTION to lose weight and keep it off for good!

I have also created a new Facebook page, and you can find me on Twitter at . Please join me at all of my new locations!!!! I cannot wait to share with you all soon!!!!

Shrimp with Lobster Sauce

Ta - da! Thank you all for your kind patience while you waited for me to find the time to post this unbelievable recipe. Keep in mind, this is not a particularly low carb recipe and I have added a few ingredient substitutions for you if you choose. There is also no nutrition information included with this recipe as it is not one of my particularly healthy specialties, but rather just something really great that I had served for a special friend at dinner one night. I hope you enjoy.

Shrimp with Lobster Sauce


12 ounces shrimp, cleaned and deveined
1 Tbsp. Chinese wine or dry sherry
1 tsp. cornstarch
3 Tbsp. canola or vegetable oil for frying
1 green onion, chopped

Lobster Sauce:
1/4 lb. ground pork
2 tsp. sauce, substitute reduced sodium soy sauce
white pepper to taste
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp. fermented black beans, optional
2 green onions, cut on diagonal about 1" long
1 Tbsp. soy sauce, or substitute reduced sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp. dry sherry
1 tsp. sugar, or substitute Splenda
3/4 cup reduced sodium chicken stock
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. water
2 eggs, beaten
2 Tbsp. canola or vegetable oil for frying

Combine the pork, soy sauce, white pepper and cornstarch in a small bowl and marinate for about 15 minutes. While the pork is marinating mince the garlic and fermented black bean paste together. In a separate bowl or measuring cup combine the soy sauce, dry sherry, sugar and chicken stock and set aside. Mix the cornstarch and water in a small bowl, set that aside also. Beat the eggs and set aside. The key is to have everything at the ready before you begin cooking as this dish cooks very quickly.

Marinate the shrimp with listed ingredients for about 15 minutes.

Heat the oil in a wok or saute pan on medium high heat and stir fry the green onion about 30 seconds. Add the shrimp and stir fry until the shrimp are pink, translucent and slightly curled. Do not overcook. Set aside and clean pan with paper towel.

Heat a wok or large saute pan on medium high heat and add 2 Tbsp. oil. Add half of the garlic and black bean mixture and stir fry until it becomes fragrant, about 30 seconds or so. Add the ground pork and stir until it is no longer pink and cooked. Remove and set aside. Clean pan with a paper towel.

Add 1 Tbsp. oil and the remaining garlic and black bean paste mixture. Stir fry for about 30 seconds and add the soy sauce mixture. Bring to a simmer and add slowly whisk or stir in the cornstarch mixture. Continue stirring until the sauce has thickened., about 2 minutes. Return the cooked pork to the sauce and stir in the sliced green onions. Turn the heat off and slowly drizzle in the beaten eggs with a fork. Pour the sauce over the shrimp, combine and serve immediately.

Note ~ the measured amounts of cornstarch can be cut in half in order to help reduce the carbohydrates in this dish. The sauce will be thinner but the taste will not be affected.
