Gluten, nut, and refined sugar free old fashioned donuts!

I tried to make this a really healthy donut recipe.  BUT…  I just couldn’t sacrifice the good old fashion donut taste.  I don’t love rice flours or starches but for this recipe they really work.   If you like you can substitute different flours but I must tell you this combo makes a very good donut like consistency and when I played around with other they did not taste as…

Gluten free beef-quinoa taco boats or bowls

The under 150 calorie, gluten-free, paleo , vegan wrap!

          I don’t normally  buy pre packaged gluten free foods, but I really like these paleo wraps from Julian bakery.  They are not cheap but they hold up well and the coconut taste is very light.   Also they can be stored on the shelf and they keep for months! I am estimating the calories in the veggies to be about 50 and there are 70…

Easy sauerkraut made with whey, from Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions

      This kraut is easy, delicious and super healthy.   I make my own raw milk kefir and with that I make yogurt so I always have leftover whey.  Whey is so versatile, it can be used in breads, pizza crusts, pancakes, etc.  Whey can also be used to ferment vegetables and soak grains. This recipe is based on Sally Fallon’s from the book Nourishing traditions, the only…

Thick and creamy Greek style probiotic yogurt made with raw milk kefir

                                        Almost exactly like my regular yogurt recipe but much thicker and this time I added fresh real vanilla bean powder.   I think this is THE BEST yogurt I have ever had.  It’s smooth and creamy while being light and refreshing at the same time.   Plus it’s the best probiotic…

Gluten Free Sicilian-style Pizza Crust

                              This recipe uses a wide variety of alternative flours, I find they work best if you mix them.  It does have quite a bit of starch but hey even us gluten free folks have to live a little, right?   I normally would make wheat pizza on a pizza stone but that needs to be…

Kefir Yogurt Recipe

Raw kefir yogurt is probiotic heaven!  I used raspberries but the possibilities are endless.   If you make your own kefir from live grains, you must try this. 1.  Let you kefir sit long enough with the grains to get pretty thick, yogurt-like.  Remove grains. 2.  Dump it into a nut milk bag or cheesecloth and strain out the whey.  KEEP THIS!  Whey  is good for many things.   If your trying…

Soaked-baked fruit and nut oatmeal (Gluten Free)

Baked soaked oatmeal is delicious and really nutritious.   Design your own using different dried or fresh chopped fruits, nuts, and toppings.   Oats contain phytic acid that inhibits your absorption of minerals.  Soaking in a combination of whey and buckwheat flour will help neutralize much of this.   I recently started adding  the buckwheat flour for phytase, oats are low in this enzyme critical to breaking down the phytates.   The acid medium…
