    I planted a vegetable garden back in May before I started reading The Plant Paradox.

Then I read the book and stared in sadness at the “vegetables” on the No list. The ones that were full of lectins…

    My symptoms have flared up again. Despite eating all the right things, doing all the right activities, taking all the right supplements, and getting all the right amount of sleep. I can’t do my jobs again. I can’t sing without pain, I can’t relax without gagging, and I can’t eat without hurting. I feel like…

But then 5 minutes later, when I’m still chewing my first bite of lettuce, I think, this sucks–can I just throw out the lettuce and eat the toppings? Instead, I soldier on and chew raw greens for the next half hour until…

  • How to Make Cassava Flour Tortillas

    September 14, 2017lectinfreemama

    The Mexican restaurant; a.k.a. the place where “lectin free” eating goes to die. Corn tortillas, refried beans, tamales, tomato salsa with extra jalapeño seeds, death by spice chili peppers, and loads of gooey cheddar cheese. There’s often not a single compliant item on the menu.

  • Easy Cinnamon Cassava Flour Pancakes

    September 2, 2017lectinfreemama

    Fall is in the air, and that means my local grocery store has placed the bins of cinnamon-orange pinecone wreaths out front for our olfactory enjoyment. I don’t know what kind of psychology they are pulling, but it’s working, because I want cinnamon everything. This past weekend, I made really easy cinnamon pancakes with cassava flour.…
