Gluten Free, Grain Free, Sandwich Wrap. For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been perfecting a grain free sandwich wrap.

Gluten Free, 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. My requirements for this grain free sandwich cover were simple, it had to be easy and quick to make, it had to taste good, it had to have a good texture (because the wrong texture can ruin a sandwich) and it had to actually hold together when I picked up the sandwich. I had tried a tapioca wrap in the past, and it was too chewy. It fits all the requirements. So, happy blogger here.

California Turkey and Bacon Lettuce Wraps with Basil-Mayo

Hello, hello! How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? My Mom, Lincoln and I finally made it back to the Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning. We’d only gone once together this summer, way back in June, and were long overdue for a visit. We also had a celebrity sighting – Governer Chris Christie was unexpectedly there doing a meet and greet and my Mom made a beeline for him as soon as we figured out who was drawing the crowd.

After some sprinkler time and a nap that afternoon, Ben and I took Lincoln to see his first hot air balloon at the National Balloon Classic! Neighboring Indianola, IA has had a hot air balloon festival for years now and it’s one of my favorite events of the summer. It was approximately 1,000 degrees with no wind, but our sweaty little boy didn’t seem to mind. Obligatory bad pic with Mom! Er…the next day. Next microwave 4 slices of bacon.

Another (Simpler) Version of Cauliflower Rice

I pulsed the contents until they were reduced to the size of couscous or rice grains. Then, I sauteed the onions in the melted butter and coconut oil over medium heat until they were translucent. When the onions were softened, I dumped in the cauliflower and stirred everything around to evenly distribute the fat and onions. Grilled Chilli Lime Chicken Fajita Salad - Cafe Delites.

If you’re new to paleo, you’re probably shouting, “Where’s the bread?”

Paleo & Gluten-Free Tortillas Recipe

Yeah, I know it’s a tough craving to get over… My hubby and I have lived without wheat bread for a year now. And honestly, it took a long time before we got past it. This recipe is for those of you who need an occasional paleo-approved “bread” for recipes that would just not be as good without it. Think enchiladas and even a paleo burrito or soft taco. If you’re a paleo newbie, I also suggest you consider going on a Whole30-type diet before allowing yourself to indulge in paleo tortillas and similar recipes. If I never have a slice of bread again, I’ll be perfectly fine.

That being said, here’s my paleo version of gluten-free tortillas. This recipe is the result.

Coconut Flour Rolls: Grain-Free and Delicious

This unique gluten-free flour has certainly left me with some challenges and interesting mishaps along the way- from a medley of sad sunken loaves to some disastrous tortillas that completely stuck to the bottom of my frying pan. Yet, through all of my coconutty baking experiments, what I have learned is that when you do finally get a recipe right, the dense, chewy texture coconut flour brings to baked goods is simply irresistible.
