Hazelnut Sourdough Bread (Keto, Paleo, Gluten-Free)

Hazelnut Sourdough Bread (Keto, Paleo, Gluten-Free)

Oh my word how I miss bread at times.  I’m about to embark on another autoimmune reset in the form of the Carnivore Diet for a few weeks (it’ll be progressive moving toward AIP so not so strict) because I need, I most certainly need […]

Sourdough Cassava Pancakes

Sourdough Cassava Pancakes

It has been a long run of sitting out on our Pancake Saturday watching my family eat and enjoy a pancake recipe that took me years to adapt and perfect.  When I had my Hashimoto’s diagnosis, grains were out… even beneficial grains like einkorn.   […]

Instant Pot Shredded Chicken

Instant Pot Shredded Chicken

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 […]

Cast Iron Sweet Potato Fries

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 […]

Cassava Sourdough (Paleo, AIP, Keto Cycling)

Cassava Sourdough (Paleo, AIP, Keto Cycling)

I love artisan sourdough.  I was able to tolerate Einkorn over all others until I developed Hashimoto’s and needed to go completely grain free.  I have done keto, paleo, whole30 and even full carnivore to heal my gut when my health has dipped to its […]

Cassava tortillas are a family favorite.  In trying to wean my family off of (soooo much) corn, I was experimenting with these using different flours and methods… and finally settled on this.  As a bonus I can eat them thanks to a long but worthwhile […]
