    I once made shepherd’s pie for dinner, and I asked my husband how he liked it halfway through. He hesitated. (Uh oh.) “What did you use to make the top?” he asked. “It’s mashed cauliflower with lots of butter. Is it seriously not good!?” I was incredulous–any mashed thing with lots of butter is inherently…

  • Lemon Dessert Recipes for Spring

    April 11, 2019lectinfreemama

    Spring is the time of year you can put lemon on anything and call it a seasonal meal. Lemon asparagus, lemon fish, lemon infused soup. Lemon frappucinos, lemon spritzers, lemon meatballs…it’s like the pumpkin spice of spring. Lemon desserts, however, take the cake (har har) for springtime treats. Gone are the rich, velvety chocolate things…

  • 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. I can’t replace many of these things for you–I won’t…

  • Everything You Need to Know About Grain-Free Flours

    August 23, 2017lectinfreemama

    If you’ve seen some of my baked good recipes, you know I use cassava flour a lot. I use it because I think it’s the best grain-free, nut-free alternative to wheat flour that exists. It yields high quality baked goods with the chewy, starchy texture of wheat flour. Many people wonder whether it’s the “healthiest”…

  • Plant Paradox Mini-Bagels

    September 30, 2018lectinfreemama

    One of the ideas from my extensive list of lectin-free snacks is to make mini pizzas from grain-free bagels. However, compliant bagels can be a little difficult to find. Fortunately, we have The Plant Paradox Cookbook, and Dr. Gundry has a tasty recipe for Plant Paradox mini-bagels. They’re perfect for mornings or for turning into…

  • 31 Quick & Easy Lectin-Free Snack Ideas

    September 3, 2018lectinfreemama

    Frequently asked question: “What are your go-to lectin-free snack ideas?” Unfortunately, I’m a little boring when it comes to snacks. I generally snack on the same handful of nuts every single day and wait until dinner to unleash my inner kitchen Goddess. My daughter starts pre-school this week, so that’s all about to change. I…

My sweet potato gnocchi has been such a big hit for families, I thought I would just…replace the sweet potato with cauliflower. That’s literally all I’ve done here, and it was…

  • A Post About Yams

    July 7, 2018lectinfreemama

    If you thought yams and sweet potatoes were the same thing, you’re not alone. If you live in the US, it’s not even your fault, because we do label certain varieties of sweet potatoes as yams. Throw in the tropical varieties of root vegetables whose names all translate to “yam” and it’s nothing less than a YAM-tastrophe…
