• The method for eating more foods you love on a lectin free diet: pressure cooking

    Are you ready to cautiously re-introduce things like squash, beans, and tomatoes back into your diet? Now that the weather’s cooler, are you pining for a good chili? If you have been following a lectin free diet for at least 6 weeks and you are symptom free, you may be ready to expand your horizons with a pressure cooker. Also, if you are vegan or vegetarian, pressure cooking is the best way to get more plant-based protein in your diet while still avoiding most lectins.

  • Prosciutto, Sweet Potato, and Arugula Salad

    I’m not a huge fan of traditional salad. It’s good at first–very green and crunchy. 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 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…

    I miss Italian food. A lot. I try to avoid even going to Italian restaurants because I inevitably get to watch others twirling their tomato sauce drenched spaghetti with extra mozzarella, while I drown my sorrows in an iceberg lettuce…

    Before you put your grill away for the summer, try some grass-fed sirloin steak and incorporate several different green veggies. A good way to get more greens is to blend them into a salad dressing. The arugula-oregano dressing in this recipe provides…

    I paid more than I want to admit for these wild-caught yellowfin tuna steaks, but I had never eaten yellowfin before, and it was the most beautiful and enticing cut of fish in the seafood case. It called out to…

    Grilling season is upon us, which means wasting time skewering vegetables on stupid sticks of wood, just to burn your hands un-skewering them afterward (forks are for amateurs). THERE MUST BE A BETTER WAY. Get yourself one of these bad…

    I no longer eat chicken, because I can’t find anything that’s 100% pastured. Every chicken recipe I make is actually Quorn. That being said, I have a feeling most people that read this are fans of chicken and not Quorn…
