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. If you are on a grain free diet, then you know how comforting it is to have something that can be used for sandwiches. 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 Have all ingredients at room temperature. Related:  GFCF Low Oxalate Dessert Recipes

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. I’ve always had strong willpower, and I can imagine little six-year-old me sitting fiercely motionless until I earned the second marshmallow. After blending the ingredients together, I stuck a spoon in the food processor bowl and scooped out a generous taste of the unset mousse. Traditional mousses rely on an arduous process of whipping and heating eggs for a stabilized base. This recipe took a lot of experimentation to perfect (yeah, poor me–having to eat all of those mistakes). Creamed Coconut is pureed coconut meat. Why grassfed gelatin?

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. But the weekend still turned out pretty fun. see, even the guys are sporting the tanks. So I wore my big girl bra to a show we went to see downtown. Guess what else I did this weekend?! I’m watching Dirty Dancing. OH!!! holy crap, huge butt. told you it was ginormous Sweet Potato Brownies 1 sweet potato3 eggs, whisked¼ cup Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, melted⅓ cup raw honey¼ teaspoon vanilla extract3 tablespoons Coconut Flour2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder¼ teaspoon baking powder¼ teaspoon cinnamonpinch of salt½ cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

Spiced Gooseberry Chutney – Lip Smacking by Chef Heidi Fink If you have been wanting to buy some of those gorgeous green gooseberries but are not sure what to do with them, let me help you out. First of all, make yourself some gooseberry jam. Hands down my favourite jam in the universe! But definitely, definitely make sure you save some berries to make a jar (or four) of Spiced Gooseberry. It’s hard to imagine how delicious Spiced Gooseberry is if you have never tried it. Can I say that I learned to make this from my Gran and that I spent hours every summer putting up chutney from my mother’s gooseberry bush? I adapted this recipe from one I found last year at, while I was searching for non-jam ideas for berries (for my Bountiful Berries cooking class, natch). Who needs ham when you can eat a gooseberry sandwhich? SPICED GOOSEBERRY CHUTNEYMakes two cups (two jars). instructions In large Dutch oven, stir together sugar, vinegar, water and salt.

Recipe: Spring Fritata If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! A fritata is slightly different from an omelette and perhaps a little more trendy. Fritata is from the italian word, fritta, the feminine past participle of the verb “to fry.” But it is way more than just fried eggs or even an omelette. This is the perfect fast food breakfast that can be made ahead and packaged for grabbing when on the run. Even more versatile, a fritata can be a very quick dinner that is savory and filling. Do Not Be Afraid of Eggs If you are making this wonderful meal, use pasture raised eggs so that you will get the most out of this nutritious meal. If you are worried about cholesterol, that is another area where conventional advice is sorely off base. If you would like to connect with a local farmer who raises hens on pasture, you might want to contact your local Weston Price Chapter. Use the Correct Pan A fritata needs to be cooked in a skillet that is also oven safe. Spring Fritata 1.

Nikki's Healthy Cookies Recipe I keep in touch with one of my best friends from high school. Her name is Nikki and she lives in rural Pennsylvania with her husband and four kids. Four! She's an inspired cook who can throw a meal together on a whim from a refrigerator she keeps packed with all manner of whole, natural foods. She's an enthusiastic supporter of local growers and producers and regularly sends me emails highlighting recent cooking triumphs and trials. A few months back she emailed me her recipe for butter-less, flour-less, egg-less, and potentially sugar-less cookies - I promptly filed it under "can't possibly be good." When I made a trip to Philadelphia a few weeks back and spent the day with Nikki the topic of the cookies was revisited. Wayne and his brother Greg drove me out to see Nikki in Kennett Square, and for those of you who find yourself in the area I'll list off a few of the places Nikki took me to visit that day. Give the cookies a try and let me know if you like them as much as I did.

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. John`s wheats were resplendent in divergence. Johns accompanying explanation of the history of wheat, illuminated by the heads he was cutting as he spoke, was the best sort of education for a baker. Earlier that day I had made bread with the baker Geoff Coleman from Wheatley, who bakes for the bread group. I also toasted some the next day and I was immediately aware of its toasty/oaten aroma.

Asparagus Chicken in Lemon Garlic Sauce If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! I was at the market the other day and I saw very thin asparagus. They actually reminded me of spaghetti so I thought I would use them in a similar way. Depending on where you live, asparagus may be in season. Asparagus is part of the lily family and is related to onions, leeks and garlic. Asparagus has a very good nutrition profile. It also has a fatty acid ratio of almost a 2:1 omega 6 to 3, which is very good. Why Urine Smells Funny After Eating Asparagus This is a little controversial as to exactly which breakdown product cause the odor. In either case, it is just the breakdown products after digestion and is not harmful in any way. Let’s Not Forgot to Eat Vegetables With Fat All those wonderful minerals in the asparagus are NOT available unless you eat them with fat. Ingredients 1.5 pounds chicken breasts sliced thinly1 pound fresh asparagus — thin ones if you can get themUnroasted sesame oil for cooking

» Grain-free Sandwich Bread (Paleo and SCD) Against All Grain Here’s the moment you have all been waiting patiently (and some not so patiently!) for. And because I ♥ my readers, I’m giving it to you a week earlier than planned: Grain-free, yeast-free, dairy-free sandwich bread. It’s moist on the inside with a slight crust on the outside, has an amazing texture and taste when toasted, and can also be used straight from the fridge with some almond butter and jam. To achieve the moist white bread texture that you often miss with the use of almond flour or almond butter, I used raw organic cashew butter and beat the egg whites separately. We’ve been having a bit of bread overload in our house lately. Grain-free Sandwich Bread (Paleo and SCD) Danielle Walker - makes 1 8.5×4.5 loaf Ingredients: Instructions: Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. A couple of notes So far, the only way I’ve used this bread cold and not toasted is with an AB&J, and it was delicious! As for the cashew butter – I love Artisana’s product. Hi there!

How to Make Marshmallow Fluff Without Corn Syrup I wanted to make homemade fudge the other day, but I wanted to make it without the industrial food, Marshmallow Fluff that you buy in jars at the store. I did a little research online and found out that Marshmallow Fluff is made from powdered egg whites, corn syrup, and fake vanilla (vanillin). These are just cheap versions of real foods. I knew I could replace powdered egg whites with real egg whites and vanillin with vanilla. I just didn’t know if it was possible to sub out a natural sweetener like honey or maple syrup for the corn syrup. I asked on my Facebook page and folks said that yes, they had successfully made marshmallow fluff using raw honey or maple syrup. I gave it a go and it was surprisingly easy.
