Grain-Free, Low Sugar Pumpkin Bread

Grain-Free, Low Sugar Pumpkin Bread

October 26, 2014 |  by  |  Breakfast, Gluten-free

I’ve sworn off grains and sugar for a few months and I’m starting to feel left out when all the wonderful fall baked goods start going around. I found this recipe on WellnessMama.com and immediately knew that I had to try it. It turned out the be the perfect solution. It’s tasty and easy to make. I used butter instead of coconut oil to minimize the coconut flavor and stevia as opposed to honey to keep the sugar content as low as possible. I made a double batch and they turned out so well, I single-handedly ate them all in…

I love breakfast. I love a group breakfast with friends and family even more. I have fond memories of growing up with a houseful of my parent’s friends pretty much every Sunday cooking, eating, drinking, and laughing. And, most likely, contemplating what drive we were going to go on that day or the next weekend since weekends drives were a regular part of my childhood. I don’t think I was always totally into those drives but I can now appreciate the fact that we were out discovering and exploring new places right in our own backyard, the Central Coast.

Cilantro Pesto
Cilantro is not only delicious but is also well known for its powerful health benefits, specifically its detoxing abilities. It is able to bind and pull heavy metals from the body. This recipe is so easy and can be used in a plethora of ways: condiment for any Mexican or Thai dish, dip for veggies, mix a spoon in your hummus or other dip for extra flavor, and most seafood would be more than happy to be paired with this savory sauce.

Cheesecake

February 6, 2012 |  by  |  Gluten-free, Recipes

I’m not really a cheesecake person, which is kind of perplexing since I LOVE cream cheese or anything cheese, for that matter. For some reason it’s just a bit much for me. Like one bite and I’m done. With that being said, I may have just been swayed by the Classic Cheesecake with Wheatless Crust recipe from Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD. I’m always on the hunt for healthy recipes that I can fool my very set-in-their-ways (oh great, what’s she making now?) family with and this one is a winner. It’s not overly sweet and as William Davis says…
