The Weekly Menu July 11, 2016

Hi everyone! Time for the gluten-free, low FODMAP weekly menu July 11! So my digestive system is actually doing a little better on the low FODMAP diet (still also gluten, totally dairy and casein free except for the Parmesan).  I’ve learned a lot more about food this week, too: basically all my spice blends have garlic or onion powder in them – so I need...

The Weekly Menu May 16, 2016

Hi everyone! It’s time for the weekly menu May 16!  Hope you had a great week. Last week was super positive for me having earned an ‘A’ in both my Intro to Bioinformatics & Coding classes at JHU. Yay! Part of the challenge has been eating really clean to keep my gut bacteria as happy as possible, exercising to keep stress down, and surrounding myself...

The Weekly Menu March 28, 2016

Hello friends! It’s that time again – coming up with a game plan for the week to get us through this diet restricted life in the easiest way possible. So it’s time for the weekly menu March 28! Because my body is super sensitive, I have to eat and live in a way that reduces chemical exposures that stress out my immune system.  As well...

New Year and Food Choices in 2016

Happy New Year and Food Choices in 2016!!! Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and bountiful 2016! New Year’s Day for Brett & me is all about football (because yesterday wasn’t enough) and eating “traditional foods” for good luck, health and prosperity! Black-eyed pea salad = good luck Greens = money and prosperity Pork/crumbled bacon = progress We’ve been making black-eyed pea dishes for New Year’s Day...

The Gluten Free Weekly Menu Food Choices

Here’s to A Happy New Year! I can’t believe this is the last casein free, gluten free weekly menu of 2015! It has gone by so fast. I’ve had a lot of fun coming up with the weekly menus and tracking our journey, trying new recipes, meats (bison) and veggies (kohlrabi) while learning and aspiring to make better food choices. And I’ve met a lot...

Mango Chutney Chicken Salad

Mango Salads I love when mangos come into season.   I especially love it in a salad with lots of other goodies like in my mango, black beans wild rice salad or the asparagus mango spring salad with goat cheese croutons.  So good! I found this recipe for mango chutney chicken salad from Martha Stewart and just had to convert it to a gluten-free and dairy-free...

May is Celiac Awareness Month

Celiac Disease Symptoms – Courtesy of Gluten Dude May is celiac disease awareness month.  Did you know that 1 in 133 people have Celiac disease?  I am often asked why so many people are being diagnosed with Celiac disease or have developed an intolerance to gluten in the last few years. I really don’t know. Although there is a genetic component, leading researchers are looking at...

The Time I Made Cauliflower Crab Cakes

Cauliflower Crab Cakes What a fun recipe for cauliflower crab cakes.   Even though a few Pinterest recipes I’ve tried have been major fails (baked cheese sticks without the freezing directions, anyone? ;)) – others have been worth the effort.   A few weeks ago, we used a Pinterest recipe for Cheesy Cauliflower Pancakes. They were tasty, filling, and perfect for vegetarian night.  Make them...
