I can eat eggs again! Just in time too, as I couldn’t come up with a pumpkin pie I liked without the use of eggs. The crust on this pie is really simple to make and just presses in to the pie plate instead of having to roll anything out. You can use canned pumpkin… Read more »
*Note : Some have had issues with the dough for this recipe. I am deleting the yogurt note as I know for certain that the bread works with the Farmer’s Cheese (dry curd cottage cheese). A reader told me they subbed thick greek yogurt and had success, but I have never tried it myself. I… Read more »
I love pomegranate seeds in a salad. They add a nice crunch and a lovely red color, and go really well with a balsamic vinaigrette. I actually would have preferred to put Bosc pears in this salad, but I couldn’t find any ripe ones so I used some of my son’s blueberries!
I don’t know about you, but I grew up on the canned variety of this holiday favorite. I actually never liked it and skipped over the jelly like substance at every Thanksgiving. Now that I’ve made it homemade and know what I am eating is not full of refined sugar, I’ve grown to love it… Read more »
Butternut squash is the quintessential Fall comfort food to me. I love the silky texture when its cooked, the rich buttery flavor, and of course the vibrant orange hue. Butternut squash, along with a lot of the other members in the gourd family, are low in fat and high in fiber. That bright orange color… Read more »
I made a trial Thanksgiving dinner the other night and am so happy with the recipe I came up with for this Brown Butter Sage Butternut Squash. Try saying that 5 times fast! I love candied yams, but since starting the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, gave up potatoes along with the grains. As I’ve been planning… Read more »
I usually make my ice cream with coconut milk because the high fat content helps make the ice cream creamy and smooth without the use of additives like xanthan gum. It tastes delicious but isn’t exactly kind to the waistline. I wanted to try ice cream with almond milk, since almonds are full of great… Read more »
These “fries” are actually not fried at all. I tried them both ways, and much preferred the baked version. Very surprising considering my love for french fries! They are super easy to make and are a great snack or appetizer. Serve them hot with a side of warm marinara sauce or dipping sauce of your… Read more »
My sister sent a Halloween care package for my son and instead of candy included a few of his favorite Plum Organic baby food packets. She sent the pumpkin banana flavor which were delicious! It gave me an idea to make an adult version for my husband and I, and the little man actually liked… Read more »
I’m willing to accept my disease and the dietary changes needed to keep it under control, but I’m not ready to give up the foods I love and the years of memories that go with them. Every year, my mom would have a Halloween party before trick-or-treating. She would serve my Grandmother’s Pumpkin Soup with… Read more »
I love an easy shake that I can use as a meal replacement in the morning if I’m short on time, or as a snack in the afternoon when I can’t make it to dinnertime. I especially love it when it involves my two favorite super foods: flax and raw cacao. I’ve been using flaxseed… Read more »
It’s apple season and our farmer’s market is overflowing with the fruit in all different shapes, sizes and colors. It’s funny, but I look forward to apple season so that I can chat with “the apple man.” I’m ashamed to say that I don’t know his name, but he is the sweetest old man who… Read more »
As I mentioned in my Trail Mix post, I’ve started soaking and dehydrating my nuts prior to eating them. You don’t have to soak them if you don’t want to, but buy raw nuts either way. These nuts are a great snack and are Paleo and SCD friendly.
It’s coming to the end of the barbeque season which is a double edge sword. On one hand, I’m sad because the ease of throwing meat and veggies on the grill at the end of a long day will no longer be in my grasp. But on the other hand, Fall and Winter bring some… Read more »
