Gluten free beef-quinoa taco boats or bowls

  Seriously one of the best Facos (fake taco)  I have ever had.   If your trying to avoid gluten and or corn you won’t miss it with these.  They are filling and full of flavor.   My whole family loves this dish.  You can also skip the lettuce boats and eat this right out of a bowl like my kids do or shred the lettuce and serve it like…

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…

Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea With Raw Milk or Almond Milk

This is an extremely simple and healthy alternative to the popular but expensive coffee shop pumpkin latte .    The coffee shop latte is pricey for sure, but it also is generally full of artificial and unhealthy ingredients. Ok so here’s another big difference, this is made with tea and not espresso or coffee. For many years I drank coffee – and I still would – if I hadn’t found…

Natural Gummy Candies

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…

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…
