These coconut flour waffles are grain-free and gluten-free, and they’re my new favorite breakfast “bread”. Coconut flour is loaded with fiber, and the eggs in this recipe make it full of protein (though I promise it doesn’t taste eggy). Add coconut oil, and you’ve got your good fats… this recipe really couldn’t be more perfect.
This simple chicken salad is healthy and fresh, a unique combination of a slightly sweet dressing, tart dried cranberries, and pungent feta cheese. Add walnuts for a bit of texture interest, and put everything over shredded chicken breast meat… it’s perfect on its own, or in a pita, lettuce wrap, on crackers, in an endive
Crustless quiche is such an easy thing to make. Decide on your fillings, make a custard, throw it in a pie pan, and bake. It’s the low-carb version of the pasta/rice casserole, and somehow it seems eons fancier, too. If you say “quiche for dinner,” it makes people around you raise their eyebrows, impressed, and
This is a great healthy muffin recipe which is gluten-free and grain-free. These cherry muffins are lightly sweetened with a bit of honey and vanilla yogurt makes them incredibly moist. Since they’re made with almond flour, they’re much more filling and satisfying than conventional wheat flour muffins, so these make a great on-the-go breakfast that
This was my first time making a turkey breast, and it’s definitely something I’ll be doing again. I love turkey, but usually wait until Thanksgiving to cook it each year. Why wait though, when you can get turkey breasts year-round? (I mean, you can get whole turkeys year-round too, but for 2 people that ends
I’ve been experimenting a bit with coconut flour, trying to come up with grain-free versions of usually-grainful baked goods. One thing I’m trying to perfect is a brownie, which this isn’t… but this came out of that experimentation. It’s a delicious banana bread with chocolatey undertones, great by itself or with butter spread over it.
So, I have to tell you that since posting this recipe for breakfast sausage, I’ve pretty much had breakfast sausage in the fridge almost every day, ready to go. I typically make a batch a week, though sometimes I skip a week… But it’s not always the same recipe. I’ve come up with a spicy
This pork turned out SO WELL… I know things are good when my husband can’t even be bothered to take a break from slowly chewing with his eyes rolled back into his head to say, “this is good.” I had to actually stop him and ask him what he thought before he said, “a keeper”
This little ditty is a delicious dessert I just threw together one afternoon on a whim. I started with: about 2 Tbsp coconut flour 3-4 Tbsp coconut oil lots of cinnamon a small sprinkle of stevia 3 Tbsp almond slivers Mix those things in a bowl… they will be the topping. Then put about 1/3
I’ve never been a make-soup-from-scratch kind of girl… but I have no idea why not. I loved the idea of homemade soup, and enjoyed it when other people made it, but was somehow scared of making anything more complicated than plain old chicken soup. But this recipe is simple to make, delicious, and un-terrifying. If
This was a REALLY GOOD IDEA, but slightly poor execution. First I’ll tell you the things I’d change, then I’ll give you the original recipe. I used too much coconut flour which made the pancakes a little too “bready” and a bit dry. I’ll use less or possibly none next time. Also, I love the
Yet another elegant use of hollandaise sauce. Steamed asparagus topped with a poached egg, all crowned with hollandaise sauce and black pepper. Need I say more? (Maybe I do need to… maybe I should make an egg-poaching tutorial post?) Check out that runny yolk… You can’t honestly tell me you’d prefer chicken fingers at Applebee’s,
