Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free, Strawberry Smoothie

I crave sugar. If you were to hear that out loud it would be “I crrrraaaaaavvvvvvvvveeee sugar”. But I’m trying to cut back. Way back. Or at least eat only natural sugars in very reduced amounts. I’m eating apples instead of ice cream. I’ve replaced some of the sweeter fruits and vegetables like carrots in my fresh juice with more neutral choices like cucumbers. Continue reading

Gluten Free Bread Alternative – Gluten Free Tortillas with Potato Starch

It’s amazing to me how many gluten free recipes you can find if you’re willing to step outside your culture. Koreans have mung bean pancakes, Mexicans have corn tortillas, Indians have lentil dosas, and I’ve discovered a new treasure trove of gluten free. Jewish Passover Recipes!! I haven’t really looked into it, but apparently Jewish people don’t eat wheat during Passover. So cool. They’ve been not eating wheat for so long, that they’ve come up with some amazing gluten free substitutions for bread. And since I’m on a quest for gluten free bread this week, I’ve borrowed from this Ancient culture. I love this recipe, I’m calling it a tortilla, because tortilla sells at our house, but I guess it’s actually a crepe (and it’ll be called a crepe when my mom visits. My mom loves crepes). It’s fast, easy to make and uses ingredients that aren’t too hard to find. I whipped up the whole thing in a blender and poured it into a lightly greased frying pan. Easy Peasy.

Gluten Free Poached Salmon

Every time I go to the grocery store, I get asked about my food. Partly because I live in a smaller town in the South and people just talk to you in the grocery store. Kinda nice. And partly because I buy food that most people here just don’t buy. Or I buy it in weird massive quantities. We juice, so we buy huge amounts of vegetables. We always get comments on this. And because I’m gluten free, we buy all that weird Bob’s Red Mill stuff. More comments.

But I don’t just get comments. I get questions. People want to know how I’m going to cook things. I’m often giving quick cooking lessons in the checkout aisle. (Again, small town, South, nobody really minds the holdup. We’re already waiting for someone to find her check book). Often enough that I’m thinking of buying index cards so I can pass out recipes.
