• Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Brown Butter Basil Sauce

    August 18, 2017lectinfreemama

    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 salad and an abundance of red wine. One of the best Italian staples is gnocchi.…

  • Cake For Breakfast: Lectin Free Vanilla Cake Mug Muffin

    August 16, 2017lectinfreemama

    Growing up, I dreamed of a life where I could eat cake for breakfast every morning. Vanilla, chocolate, carrot, cheese, it didn’t matter the flavor. It was tradition in my house that when someone had a birthday, and there was leftover cake, we could eat it for breakfast the next day, and my young self…

  • Lectin Lowdown: Why You Should Stop Eating Plant Lectins (Or at Least Reduce Them)

    August 11, 2017lectinfreemama

    Just like the term “leaky gut,”¬†lectins were something I’d never heard of before several months ago. I’d heard of several other “bad” dietary things, most of which I had already tried giving up, to no avail. First I gave up dairy. That eased some symptoms. My heartburn and night sweats went away. Then I gave…

  • 5 Pesto Recipes: Basic Basil to Minty Dessert

    August 5, 2017lectinfreemama

    Aaaah, it’s the end of summer. The cicadas come out, the grass starts to die, and your garden bed is so overgrown with herbs you contemplate taking a weed wacker to the whole thing and calling it a season. At least that’s the case with mine. Last year I did nothing, and I allowed the…

  • Grilled Sirloin Steak and Leeks with Arugula-Oregano Dressing

    August 4, 2017lectinfreemama

    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 a peppery, savory zing to the milder flavor of baby greens. This way you’re eating…

  • Dijon Salmon Cakes with Minty Millet

    August 1, 2017lectinfreemama

    Let me preface this recipe by saying that I’m a hard-core hiker. Or I was. I once spent 6 months hiking the entire Appalachian Trail–walking through the woods for hours on end, carrying everything that mattered on my back for thousands of miles. “Why does this matter and why do I care?” you ask. Tunafish–the…

  • Lectin Free Peach Cobbler Breakfast Pancake

    Behold, yellow peaches. The juicy, not-too-sweet, not-too-tart pit fruit that you can play tennis with when it’s not ripe and get a half gallon of juice down your chin when it is ripe. Peach season is almost gone, and, before it goes away, you need to make this peach cobbler breakfast pancake. Inspired by Dr.…

  • Wild Yellowfin Tuna with Avocado Salad

    July 17, 2017lectinfreemama

    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 me… And it was the best fish I’ve ever eaten. This is the absolute furthest…

  • Grilled Chicken, Mushroom, and Limes with Zesty Cauliflower Rice

    July 7, 2017lectinfreemama

    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 boys. Heat it up right on the grill, wipe it with some avocado oil, and…

  • Apricot-Balsamic Glazed Chicken Cutlets and Salad with Basil Pesto Dressing

    June 29, 2017lectinfreemama

    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 (shoutout to my vegetarian peeps). All of my chicken recipes can be made with either.…
