I have been having a blast in the kitchen! Since two of the four of us in my family are gluten free*, and I am dairy free...not by choice I can tell you that :), I have turned my home's kitchen into a test kitchen! And you get to benefit, too!! Because my daughter has even more intolerances than I do, I often have to limit the spices I use in my recipes. Becasue of that, if you try something and add your own touch, please leave a comment and share what you do so we may all enjoy it as well.
While I have tried to stay away from grains for a while, every now and then I do want a feel good meal or treat.* Over the last month with this crazy cold weather, my family and clients have enjoyed these recipes below. Just remember, use real, organic ingredients whenever possible, and avoid GMO's and additives!! Homemade indulgences are okay in moderation.Get ready, because spring is on my mind and I love the lighter menu it invites for so many of us... so stay tuned!
Here are a few new additions that may be found in the recipe tab of my website:
*My daughter and I have been confirmed gluten intolerant by the ALCAT Food Intolerance and Sensitivity Blood Test, as well as by our own mindfullness and food diary/journals. If you suspect an intolerance, call me today for a free consultation. We can determine if a simple elimination diet can help you based on your symptoms, or perhaps the ALCAT is your best option.
**I do not think grains are bad for you! Real, whole grains, prepared properly, have great nutritional value. However, for me, with my health issues, I have found my inflammatory response lessons when I eat them in moderation...especially the baked indulgences! When my family sees the KitchenAid on the counter, joy fills the air! :)
