Creamy Cauliflower Soup

Inspired by Dr. Lindner This is an easy soup to throw together on a blustery winter day {or a crisp autumn day for that matter}. It’s so creamy and delicious, you won’t even notice it’s almost all veggies! Babies love it too! 1 head cauliflower 2 leeks {white & light green parts, washed and chopped}…

Edible Toothpaste

We’ve been using this toothpaste for some time, and while it’s not certified by the ADA, my teeth and gums feel great! All the ingredients are safe to eat so if your kids swallow some, no worries! Although I don’t recommend eating large amounts as xylitol is known to cause intestinal distress. It’s known to kill mouth…

Cherry Bagels

As much as I like making things from scratch, I recently found a baking mix that we’ve been having a lot of fun with. The brand is Chebe and the mix is mostly tapioca flour and starch making the breads that result gluten-and-grain-free. The dough is kneadable {which is fun for the kids} and the…

Socca

This recipe is simply an excerpt from David’s Lebovitz’s Socca Recipe because it just can’t be improved. We use it to make quick crepe-like flatbread for wraps and dipping, and it’s naturally grainfree! In France these are made in wood-fired stoves which is probably truly spectacular, so try it if you have one! {I also sometimes…

Toasties {or Savory Grainfree Biscuits}

Inspired by Traditional Food Adventure’s Grainfree Teething Biscuit We keep a bunch of these in the freezer and toast them up for hummus tea sandwiches, sliders and breakfast. They are soft enough for new chewers and tasty enough for the whole family. 1 C coconut flour 1 C grainfree or glutenfree flour mix 1/2 C arrowroot powder 1 1/2…

Coconut Yogurt

From Noveau Raw’s Young Thai Coconut Yogurt. Exotic Superfoods has amazing young Thai coconuts shipped frozen for freshness. Thanks Amie Sue!  By fermenting your probiotics, you’re actually eating colonies of good bacteria rather than just colony forming units (CFUs). I think this gives them a better chance of surviving in the gut and also some delicious coconut…

Grainfree Flour Mix

Inspired by Gluten Free Girl and the Chef’s Gluten-Free Fresh Pasta.

Vegan Grainfree Paella

Some may argue this is technically not paella because it contains no rice, but it’s inspired by a Spanish paella recipe and is prepared in a similar way. It’s hearty and fulfilling and packed with yellow peas, whose protein is considered to be one the best sources of essential amino acids.  You could certainly use…

Dill Stroganoff with Mushrooms and Broccoli

This is one of our favorite dishes – especially when we have dill growing in the garden! It’s creamy and delicious and can be made vegan or ovo-vegan, depending on the pasta. Serves 6-8   2 tablespoons oil {sunflower or olive} 1/2 yellow or white onion {diced} 1 clove garlic {minced} 3 medium Portobello mushrooms {sliced…

Udon Soup

Homemade broth is an incredibly alkalizing food. Dulse {red seaweed} is a great source of complete protein amino acids and iodine. If you’re fasting from wheat, you can replace the udon noodles with NoOodles {made with yams}. Serves 4 6 ounces udon noodles 6 cups homemade veggie broth 6 Crimini or Shiitake mushrooms, sliced 2 handfuls baby spinach…

This supplemental formula is designed as a complement to breast milk and is a healthy, living…

Veggie Broth

When in a rush, you can easily create a quick broth. Most broths consist of 3 main elements: onion, celery, and carrots – you’ve probably tasted those that don’t. For a quick broth, add a ratio of ¼ onion {chopped}, 1 carrot {chopped}, 1 celery stalk {chopped} to 3 C water and scale up per recipe. Add some…
