For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been perfecting a grain free sandwich wrap. The reason? I did a Whole 30, and my stomach stopped hurting. Yay! Being completely grain free always makes my stomach stop hurting. But I was missing easy meals like sandwiches. So I needed a grain free sandwich something. Continue reading
Hey Friends! I’m guest posting today on NOLA Paleo sharing my own healing journey. It’s not really a “gluten free beginner” topic, but I think some of you might be interested in knowing a little bit more about me, my own health struggles and the things I’m doing to regain my health after I suffered a serious health crisis and received autoimmune disease diagnosis. The post doesn’t contain medical advice, just the things that helped me. You can find the post here on NOLA Paleo. Continue reading
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.
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.
The best part about a roast chicken?
In my gluten eating days it was the stuffing.
I especially liked the way it flavored the chicken with it’s salty, savory goodness.
A roast chicken without stuffing seems a little bland, doesn’t it?
Today I’m going to show you a way that you can add a beautiful stuffing flavor to your chicken that’s so fast and easy that roast chicken will move off your special occasion menu and on to Thursday’s dinner plate. Continue reading
Tilapia is a a naturally gluten free food, and is a perfect busy night supper. One of my favorites. Perfect for those “throw something in the oven, we need to eat and leave,” nights. I like it best with a romaine salad. I keep a few leaves whole for tomorrow’s lunch. Continue reading
Grilled chicken and vegetables is one of our favorite dinners. It’s fast and easy to prepare, you can stand outside in the sunshine when you cook it, there’s no huge mess in the kitchen to clean up, and it tastes great! I make extra so we can enjoy the leftovers for lunch in a Chicken and vegetable stir fry with cilantro cheese salsa. Our family eats about 1/2 a chicken breast at dinner each. If you have bigger or smaller appetites, feel free to adjust the amounts in this recipe to fit your family or add another side like baked potatoes or a salad. Continue reading
I mentioned the other day that my husband is a wonderful guy. He really is. He’s the kind of guy who will come home after 14 straight days of 12 hour shifts and say, “wow! You look beautiful! What can I do to help around here?” And though I sometimes respond with “here take this baby I need to change out of these pajamas” something less wonderful, it’s a great day when I can say “Everything’s done, sit down, I made you muffins. Yesterday was a great day. I made muffins.” Continue reading
