Sweet Potato Fries with Manjistha

Having to avoid nightshades is frankly annoying.  Back in my pre-Hashimotos days when I was running 20-30 miles per week and cutting whole bags of jalapeños onto every meal I also enjoyed a nice fat burger with mushrooms, blue cheese and hot chips (French fries). […]

This I feel goes without saying, but meal prep really helps during the week… and who doesn’t love shredded chicken?  I do a roast chicken most Sundays for dinner, but the kids prefer it shredded to put in tacos and lettuce boats.  It’s simply smart […]

Fermented Guacamole (Nightshade-Free)

Who loves guac?!  Personally, I love guacamole… but I truly do not enjoy the speed at which I have to consume it so it does not turn brown.  Once in a while I will make fermented kefir guac which doesn’t brown, but I can no […]

Bacon Encrusted Chicken & Liver Meatloaf

Bacon Encrusted Chicken & Liver Meatloaf

When I lived in Scotland we used to periodically visit these lovely old castles and manors on estates around the country.  Inevitably I would wander in to a staff kitchen and there would be a sign up over a prep station that read “Waste Not, […]
