How to milk an almond : Almond Milk Tutorial

Everyone knows you can milk a cow, a goat, a sheep, and even a coconut. Luckily for all of us dairy free folks, you can also milk nuts. Well you can’t physically “milk” them, but you can extract the liquid from the nuts. Almond milk is a fantastic alternative to cow’s milk. It’s low in … Continue reading

Gluten-Free Vanilla Almond Granola

The first day of Autumn is quickly approaching and it’s still 95 degrees where we live! If I wasn’t so much of a wuss in the snow, I’d pick up and move to the East Coast so I could do some leaf peeping and enjoy the Fallidays properly. Have you heard of leaf peeping? We … Continue reading

Paleo Honey Biscuits (GF, SCD, Paleo)

These remind me a little of corn bread, especially if you drizzle some honey on top. I originally made them to go with a roasted chicken and root vegetables, but ended up eating all of the leftovers for breakfast all week! I spread them with a little butter and homemade blueberry preserves. Ingredients (makes 4 … Continue reading

Grain-free and Dairy-free Pumpkin Pie (SCD)

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 … Continue reading

Dairy Free Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

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 … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

Vegan Pumpkin Banana Smoothie

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 … Continue reading

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

I’m willing to except 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 … Continue reading

Peanut Butter Banana Shake

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 … Continue reading

Berrylicious Baked Oatmeal (Vegan and Gluten Free)

My husband was away on business, so the rest of us didn’t have an agenda yesterday morning and rolled out of bed at 9am (dog included!). The extra sleep felt so glorious! Luckily I made this baked oatmeal the night before so I could continue the lazy morning and not have to worry about preparing … Continue reading
