Gluten free, Paleo Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Yes, it’s possible to be gluten-free and paleo and still love your pizza! Last year I ran across a cauliflower pizza recipe which we tried while my mom in law was in town, and it was a BIG hit! We all loved it, though my only complaint was that it wasn’t sturdy enough to pick up and eat since I chose to… Read more →

Eat Like a Dinosaur: Recipe & Guidebook for Gluten-free Kids

I used to go through life without thinking much about things. I wasn’t much of a planner at all; in fact, I was both irked by, and in awe of, people who were. How could they so confidently know what they were going to want in a few days, a week or even months? I had the hardest time picking a major… Read more →

A day in the life of a gluten free kid

My son is almost 8; hard to believe that my little man is growing so fast and forming his own identity at such as a sweet, tender young age. But he is, and part of that identity is being gluten-free. It’s a life I know as an adult, but certainly not one I can relate to from a child’s eye, and yet, I’m always so impressed with how resilient and… Read more →

Monsanto, GMOS and you. What does it all mean?

One of the biggest challenges today when talking about why the rates of food sensitivities and allergies, immune disorders, chronic illnesses and more have all dramatically increased over the last 20 or so years, is that people have little idea of what they’re consuming, and hows it’s affecting them. From hormones, chemically created oils, genetically modified/engineered foods, etc., the list… Read more →

It’s a great option for a cold lunch and the plantains make for a delish and healthy addition with the black beans. Plantains have a heart healthy combo… Read more →

home made gluten free roll ups

Home-made gluten free fruit rollups

Ahh, the juicy, sticky, chewy goodness of fruit rollups brings back memories of  childhood –  twisting and pulling it from my teeth after making all sorts of weird shapes with it. Now that I think about it, I’m not sure how it got that pliable quality, and its probably best I dont know! But, since I’m living Paleo, and trying to… Read more →

Eat Like a Dinosaur: Recipe & Guidebook for Gluten-free Kids

Recently while chatting with some friends about the subject of food allergies and kids, I was surprised when one of them mentioned that his son’s school has started sectioning off the kids with food allergies into a separate classroom. Sadly, yes, you read that right – the food-allergic kids have their own classroom. He said the logic was that this prevented the other non-alergic (read “normal”)… Read more →

Spicy Cocoa Roasted Almonds

A friend sent me this recipe from Kitchen Addiction as a great idea for a sweet/salty treat, and suggested they would make nice home-made gifts too, and I have to admit that home-made gifts have that special touch store-bought gifts can lack and I personally love a home-made gift.  You can wrap them in some cellophane and use a simple ribbon to… Read more →
