• How to Make Ravioli with Coconut Wraps

    February 20, 2018lectinfreemama

    In case you needed another way to eat coconut, I’ve come up with a creatively clever way to make ravioli without the…uh, pasta. Actually, I’m not sure if I can technically call these ravioli, as pasta may literally define the dish.

  • Thinking About Trying the Plant Paradox Diet?

    January 29, 2018lectinfreemama

    This post is for the commitment-phobes. You know who you are. I used to be you. Should I do the Plant Paradox or shouldn’t I? What if it backfires and make me feel worse? Do I really believe lectins are killing me? Who do I trust?! I’m still trying to figure out the answer to that…

  • The Best Ever Lectin-Free Chili

    January 25, 2018lectinfreemama

    Over the weekend, I climbed the Everest of lectin-free “conversion” dishes. I attempted a slow-cooked chili with no tomatoes, no peppers, and no beans. I’ve tried Dr. Gundry’s skinny chili in the past, and, although delicious, I was left wanting a chili that had a thick “chili” texture (i.e. one with tomato paste) In the…

    December 31, 2017lectinfreemama

    One of the hardest parts of adopting a new lifestyle is finding the budget to restock your pantry. Getting rid of your old pantry items and buying all new ones means financial commitment and long term commitment. And that’s scary. I hung on to a box of cornmeal for two years, just in case.  I would like to help…

  • Warm Gingerbread in a Mug

    December 16, 2017lectinfreemama

    Nothing says fairy tale Christmas like warm gingerbread, fresh out of the oven. The smell alone is enough to make the grinchiest woman (or man) in the house spontaneously sing Burl Ives. Unfortunately, real gingerbread with heaping spoonfuls of molasses, isn’t an option for us lectin-enlightened folk. It’s not that we’re grinches–we want to enjoy the…

    Thanksgiving quickly approaches, and some of us are wondering what we will ever do without the traditional turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, dinner rolls, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie. For many sufferers of autoimmune and chronic diseases, holiday gatherings will never be the same, but that doesn’t have to be a sad thing! For those who…

  • The Indigenous Diet Study: Australian Aborigines

    November 4, 2017lectinfreemama

    For the past couple decades, we’ve been told that whole foods and whole grains are better for us than refined ones. They have more fiber, more protein, more vitamins, lower cholesterol, speed digestion, etc… Why is it, then, that the oldest and healthiest cultures in the world, like the Australian Aborigines, for example, have been…

  • Karen’s Dessert: Ginger Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

    October 22, 2017lectinfreemama

    One of my readers, Karen, was asked to bring Thanksgiving dessert to her family gathering. She’s a fellow “lectin free” foodie who also “retreats from sweets.” Dessert is probably the most challenging thing to make Plant Paradox compliant, simply because it’s not necessary food for fuel. We mostly eat ground up salad and olive oil,…
