Orange Peach Turmeric Smoothie

By now you have probably heard about turmeric or curcumin and it’s amazing anti-inflammatory properties.  I had read about it and started encapsulating dried turmeric to help with my headaches last fall.  But it wasn’t until I started working with my doctor (who is wonderful) that I realized that the regular culinary form of turmeric wasn’t going to cut it when it came to really helping me with my inflammation.  Or, I was going to have to take a LOT of it to notice a difference.

Lemony Cod Cakes (nut-free, Paleo)

I’ve been making these cod cakes for my client and she has been loving them.  If you are someone who doesn’t like salmon very much and prefers white fish, you will probably love them. Plus they are nut-free which is an extra added benefit for those of you who can’t have nuts.  I hope you enjoy them!

Homemade Marshmallow Bunnies for Easter (sugar-free)

Brown marshmallow bunny with cocoa powder and white one with arrowroot powder.

Happy Spring and for those who celebrate, Happy Easter!  Spring is my favorite time of year and I think probably everybody’s favorite this year after the harsh winter we had.  I’m grateful for the warm days we’ve had and the blossoming trees.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Hearts

Cookie Hearts

Happy Valentine’s Day!  When I was a kid, my mom made Valentine’s heart cakes with a heart cake mold and then brought them to school for Valentine’s Day.  These were the days before we knew about my food allergies.  The cakes were super moist, yummy and frosted with pink frosting with a red heart in the middle.  Yum!

Orange Cranberry Coconut Flour Muffins (nut-free)

I have had a craving for Orange Cranberry Muffins ever since I saw this yummy looking recipe at Comfy Belly.  However, I’ve been avoiding almond flour (as best I can) and wanted to do a full coconut flour version.  The only other Paleo or GAPS style recipe I could find that could be nut-free was Elana’s Cranberry Walnut bread.  So I used the two recipes and came up with a delicious recipe, luckily on the first try.  We really enjoyed them and I hope you do too!  They would be an awesome addition to Christmas breakfast.  Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

Autoimmune Apple Pie Recipe + Autoimmune Thankgiving Menu Planner

Thanksgiving is only a week away!  I’ve been enjoying working on a new menu planner that is autoimmune friendly and works with Dr. Kharrazian’s autoimmune diet protocol.  My family has also been enjoying it because I have had to test a lot of recipes, especially this new apple pie recipe.  It took me a few times but once I got it right, my husband just about devoured it.

Spiced Fig Crusted Apple Pie

The crust on this pie was made with mission figs which are dark. For a lighter crust, use Turkish figs.

Wow, so it’s been three months since I have done a blog post.  This is mainly due to going through a detox the past couple of months that made doing anything above and beyond the most essential tasks of life pretty much impossible.  I did start feeling better a couple weeks ago and this week I have felt much better.

Delicious Spinach Pesto (nut-free, dairy-free, seed-free)

I have been working on some new recipes for the menu planners I’m creating for Dr. Kharrazian’s autoimmune diet and wanted to create a pesto that is dairy and seed free.  All the pesto recipes I have that are dairy-free have some kind of seed or nut in them so I was on a search for seed, nut and dairy-free pesto.  I came across this nut-free Spinach Basil Pesto recipe that contains Parmesan and thought I could easily adapt it to being dairy-free.

Dairy-free Fudgesicle Recipe

This recipe happened by accident.  I was trying to make Raw Cacao Mousse but I didn’t soak the dates long enough and so they simply would not blend into the the rest of the mixture in my food processor.  They were also old dates that I was trying to salvage so they were no longer soft and gooey but rather hard.  The taste was yummy but the texture was gritty from the date skins.
