Grain Free Butternut (or Sweet Potato) Flatbread

Grain Free Butternut (or Sweet Potato) Flatbread
I know, that’s sounds like an extreme claim. But if you follow a restricted diet, then you know just how liberating it is to have a never-fail staple recipe in your culinary arsenal. This grain free flatbread, a healthy bread alternative, fits the bill when you crave something–for lack of a better term–bready. Even better, it requires only about 5 minutes of prep! If you are on a grain free diet, then you know how comforting it is to have something that can be used for sandwiches. That’s one reason why I’m so excited about this recipe! I’ve been enjoying these for breakfast, slathered with raw honey. The strange ingredient in this grain free flatbread is the gelatin. “I don’t have gelatin,” you may be thinking, “can I leave it out?” I know I will be asked about egg substitutes. If you don’t have the butternut squash, you could use mashed acorn squash or sweet potato to make this grain free flatbread. Grain Free Butternut (or Sweet Potato) Flatbread Ingredients Instructions

Dairy and Egg Free Strawberry Mousse (GAPS, SCD) Have you seen the Marshmallow Experiment video? Researchers plop a single marshmallow down in front of a child in a closed room and explain, “You can eat the marshmallow now, or wait to eat it and I will bring you another one.”A hidden video camera records the hilarious results. A few kids stoically wait, face glazed over with determination, masters of delayed gratification. Sweet Potato Brownies This weekend didn’t feel like a weekend. Probably because I was stuck inside for most of it. It snowed like 3 feet. Not really, probably like 16 inches, but I’m pretty sure my car only comes 5 inches off the ground, no it’s not a ghetto low rider, well maybe, but I seriously couldn’t even pull onto the street. I spent 30 minutes cleaning off my car to only make it 2 feet into the street. Ok, that was an exaggeration.

Moist Pumpkin Bran Muffins I’m traveling for Thanksgiving but I just had to make SOMETHING before I left. I’ve been experimenting with pumpkin muffins and thought they’d make a good breakfast treat for Thanksgiving morning. These came out really moist with just the right sweetness.

This is the perfect fast food breakfast that can be made ahead and packaged for grabbing when on the run.

Butter vs Margarine: The Big Fat Butter Lie Is butter bad for you? For decades, the food processing industry has used advertising campaigns to successfully lie about the urgent and proven need to replace “unhealthy” butter with “healthy” margarine. But now we know that this teaching was nothing more than made-up. In the battle of margarine vs butter, you may now be surprised which comes out on top. Even back in the 60s and 70s sufficient scientific evidence indicated that butter was far better than margarine for good health. Who knew?

Creamy Cauliflower Alfredo (Dairy-free, Nut-free) This creamy Alfredo sauce is deceptively healthy. In lieu of the heavy cream, butter and cheese found in traditional Alfredo sauce, this particular version gets its creamy texture from pureed cauliflower! Cauliflower is the ultimate “chameleon” of vegetables–> it can easily transform into rice, pizza crust or a creamy sauce, like this one. You may recall that I’ve tried making this type of sauce on a number of occasions in the past, but it always tasted a little too “healthy” for my standards. Lemony Olive Oil Banana Bread Recipe Certain adventures call for the perfect banana bread, and this was one of them. You can't really know what to expect regarding the weather when someone invites you to a late-October wedding near Monterey, California. A wedding at an off-season summer camp. I thought there was a good chance I'd be wearing Wellies under whatever dress I picked out, sloshing around in puddles. Not the case! The sun was strong, old moss-laced oak trees lent some shade, and the guests swam, shot rifles, barn danced, and drank plenty of bubbles at this multi-day fête.

Ancient Wheats and flour. The ancient flour…….. …2010 It was with great expectations that we visited John Letts` plots of ancient cereals he grows at Wheatley near . Mainly wheats and some , the aim of Johns growing is to encourage diversity. Rye will cross pollinate, so John has planted numerous types of Rye together, from Latvia, Ireland, Canada etc to establish a diverse gene pool, in direct contrast to the mainstreams monoculturing and highly selected narrow gene pool. This has many implications for our food supply…later. My expectations were met I must say. Asparagus Chicken in Lemon Garlic Sauce If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed.

Depending on where you live, asparagus may be in season.
