Grain-free flatbread pizza OR crazy-ish bread

If you subscribe to the theory that bread and cheese are the hardest things on our digestive systems because of the gluten, lactose, and casein, then pizza is absolute worst invention E.V.E.R…except that it’s so much fun to eat!

Guilt-free Chocolate Covered Strawberries

So if you really want guilt-free chocolate covered strawberries, you can dip them in 90% dark chocolate. (If you want organic, you have to go 85% or unsweetened). However, the whole double-boiler thing, the mess, then waiting for them to cool and harden is really beyond what my limited time for feeding my face can […]

{RECIPE} Grain-free Fried Rice

Although I didn’t grow up culturally Korean, I LOVE Asian food. Rice has been one of the really hard things for me to give up and often finds itself in the 20 part of my 80/20 commitment. Cauliflower is one of the things I can successfully hide from PJ (our choosy 11 year old, carb-craver). […]

{Recipe} Pizza Egg

Follow my blog with Bloglovin One of the foods we miss the most since going grain-free is pizza. We did find a quinoa crust recipe that we indulge in, but Grace came up with a completely grain-free alternative recently…the pizza egg. Basically you make an omelet and top it with sauce and cheese. We’ve found the […]

{What’s For Dinner} Lettuce Wraps

Right now, we’re buried in ice and snow during an unusually cold winter. However, there are nagging garden thoughts in the back of my mind. Lettuce and other leafy greens will be on the first fruits of spring. We also have a half a cow in our freezer downstairs–a lot of which is ground beef. […]
