  • Ghoulishly Green Smoothie Recipe – Kid-Friendly

    Halloween is one of the few times I let my kids indulge in candy. I want to teach them about balance and I think Halloween provides us with a great opportunity to do so. On Halloween night the kids will go trick or treating, come home, dump all their candy, and we’ll go through it together to pick out the allergy-friendly candies. They’ll get a couple of candies a day, but we make sure they’re also getting lots of water, all of their vitamins, lots of fresh air, rest, and healthy ...
  • Raw Apple Zucchini Bread

    This is definitely not your traditional bread recipe (check my recipe page for some of those).  But raw breads are pretty easy to make, and they’re great for those of us who have moved away from yeasted breads, even of the gluten-free variety. I have recently accepted that I am battling an overgrowth of candida. Two years ago I suffered a miscarriage and immediately after that I got a horrible double ear infection.  Let me tell you, it was a rough few months. One of the ...
  • All But Gluten – Breads, Muffins and other Baked Goods

    One of the trickiest items to replace when people go gluten-free is bread. For some reason, bread has become a North American staple in our diets. We seem to serve bread at almost every meal these days. So it makes perfect sense that losing bread is the hardest part of a change to a gluten-free diet. When Pete was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease (about 8 years ago) the gluten-free bread options were pretty sparse, and those that were on the market were a lot like cardboard. But ...
  • Single Serving Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

     Thanks for the visit!  Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter so you can get your copy of my new e-book 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Why oh why would someone want a single serving cupcake recipe? I can think of a few reasons: 1.  When you get that sudden urge for chocolate. 2. When you get that sudden urge for something sweet. 3.  When you totally forgot that your son has a birthday party in two hours and you need to send a cupcake! 4. Single mug ...
  • Summer Holidays & Vanilla Cashew Pudding with Raspberries

    It’s so important for me to make sure my kids have a blast this Summer. And as you can see, we’re doing the best we can!  I believe in making the most of Summer (actually, we should make the most of every day). We’re also staying cool eating lots of homemade ice cream (have you seen The Spunky Coconut’s new Dairy-Free Ice Cream Cookbook!?) and homemade popsicles. Who says dairy-free living can’t be delicious? We’ve learned how to satisfy our creamy cravings with ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

    My kids are addicted to these cookies! And I couldn’t be happier – they’re full of healthier ingredients and they’re nut-free! This is my first cookie recipe using NuNaturals Stevia (alcohol-free). Let me tell you, I loved cutting back the sugar (even unrefined sugar is sugar) and adding some stevia. If you want to skip the stevia (it’s okay, it took me a long time to come around to stevia), add a tablespoon or two of maple syrup. This recipe also uses my latest obsess...
  • Easy Peasy Crunchy Chopped Salad

    We can't seem to get enough of asparagus around here!  Where we live, it's our first local crop that bursts outta nowhere and carries us into Summer's beautiful bounty! Pete and I love it steamed and roasted, but this year we tried throwing it raw into our salads. And it's delightful. Asparagus is super high in vitamins and minerals (like vitamin K and vitamin A) so why not try to sneak it in to more meals. We like to eat a lot of salads at our house, and we like to switch up our ...
  • Lemon Poppy-Seed Cookies

    I am so proud of my Momma – she’s made some major changes in her diet in the last few months and she’s looking and feeling fabulous! After reading Wheat Belly, she decided to switch to a gluten-free lifestyle. She’s also taken on dairy-free living. And refined sugar-free living. Yes, she’s a superstar! And she also happens to be an amazing and supportive Mother. I can’t imagine where I’d be if it weren’t for her love in my life. My Mom and I share a love for many ...
  • Creamy Mediterranean Salad Dressing

    We are finally getting fresh organic salad greens at our Farmer’s Market. It makes such a difference to our salads. While we don’t eat exclusively local foods, we like to eat local fruits and veggies as much as possible. It’s more affordable, and better for you (the closer your fruits and veggies are to the farm, the more vitamins and minerals you can get from them). Plus, it supports your local farmers! With fresh greens in the fridge, Pete and I have been whipping up a lot of ...
  • Savory Gluten-Free Crackers

    I think most of you know what a few of my favorite things are: cookies, muffins, smoothies, and pumpkin seed flour! I’m slightly obsessed with it lately, but that’s a good thing. Pumpkin seed flour is a super nutritious way to get some vitamins and minerals from your diet. You must use raw pumpkin seeds though! Roasted pumpkin seeds don’t have the same oil content, or the same nutritional value. This recipe for gluten-free crackers was born for a good cause. My friend Tess from ...
