Autoimmune Breakfast Sausages

Autoimmune Breakfast Sausages

I ate according to the autoimmune protocol for a month before leaving for the Low Carb Cruise.  Which means on top of not eating grains, legumes and dairy I left out nightshades (usually hot spices and peppers, tomatoes etc), but also eggs, nuts and seeds.  Why did I do it?  I wanted to experience the…

Paleo Shepherd’s Pie

Paleo Shepherd's Pie

  I love cooking & baking and it forces me to attempt so many dishes.  One of those dishes was something that I always turned my nose up at when I was a kid, Shepherd’s Pie.  I was a picky eater and I still am.  I’m one of those people who forbid my food touching…

Delicious Bacon Brussels Sprouts

Bacon Brussels Sprouts

Look away and pretend you didn’t see a Teflon frying pan.  I’m working hard to change my habit of frying/sautéing everything in a Teflon frying pan and switching over to a cast iron pan.  So far every day I fry my eggs in the tiniest cast iron frying pan.  It’s progress, one meal at a…

Mexican Breakfast

I’ve been craving mexican food lately!  Eating everything from guacamole to taco salad.  Yummmm guacamole!  I blame it on the Ancestral Health Symposium.  One of the lunches served guacamole with the hamburgers … and the moment the guacamole hit my lips I was instantly craving  mexican food again. I’ve been eating this back to back…

Low Carb Gluten Free Blueberry Bagels

Blueberry Bagels

Mornings can’t get any better than eating a bagel when you haven’t had one in a LONG long LONG time!  I’ve been keeping a secret from all of you.  I’ve been huddled in the kitchen day and night (in between beach time) perfecting my coconut flour baking recipes!  I am proud to say I made…

Simple Salad Dressing

Simple Salad Dressing

I stopped eating Renee’s Mighty Caesar Salad Dressing with my spinach salads a few months ago.  I was left bewildered about what salad dressing to use that was dairy free.  My brother’s girlfriend shared with me her tasty balsamic dressing.  I don’t love balsamic dressing so it was a fill in until I could find…

Low Carb Hamburger Buns (Gluten Free)

What goes on opposite sides of a hamburger???  If you guessed a bun you are correct!  Some people eat their hamburgers bunless (like me), or they try an oopsie roll, they even go as far as wrapping lettuce around the burger.  I’ll pass on the lettuce but I have tried an oopsie roll and I…

Quick Low Carb Apple Fritters (Gluten Free)

I’m in the middle of trying to get someone to take over the lease for my apartment.  Like the creative person I am, I strategically starting cooking some apple flavoured pancakes (aka quick apple fritters) before my first applicant showed up.  The sweet smell of apples dancing with cinnamon flowed through my cozy space.  Is…

Elana’s Paleo Bread

Paleo Bread

This week has gone by so fast and it’s only Wednesday!  It’s around 10:30 p.m. and I just finished my supper which was spicy calamari rings with coconut flour.  I’ve been so busy that everything in the past few days has been a quick meal or snack.  We all need those kinds of recipes.  Elana’s…

Deconstructed Omelette

I woke-up yesterday like normal; sleepy, grumpy, and tired of living in a construction zone.  The hardwood floors are being redone, which means they were stripped of the old varnish/stain (LOTS of dust), and now we are in the stages of staining some sections and applying varnish to other sections.  The beach house smells so…
