• The Best Lectin-Free Christmas Cookies

    November 26, 2018lectinfreemama

    It’s simply not the holiday season without small slabs of sugar, butter, and flour. I’m talking about Christmas cookies, of course (well, on this site, lectin-free Christmas cookies ). Peanut butter blossoms, Mexican wedding cakes, cannonballs, cut-out sugar cookies, date cookies, gingersnaps–crunchy and sugary or soft and buttery. Pick your favorite, and usher in the…

    Are you the kind of person that brings a bag of chips and a tub of dip to a party? Cause I totally am…er, was. It’s not that I’m sometimes lazy or a procrastinator (just kidding, I am). It’s that I’ve got things to do, and spending 4 hours in the kitchen on a likely…

But really it’s the yam’s exotic, tropical cousin with papery brown skin and a slimy purple interior. They love the water (they grow in…

    Every year, for two glorious weeks, the reddest, sweetest, juiciest berries on earth make an appearance, causing a frenzied berry-picking extravaganza amongst the local populace. Even the “city folk” show up in white pants and wedge heels to carefully extract red gold from under the green leaves. Yes, it’s strawberry season, and I’m not eating…

    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…

    November 7, 2017lectinfreemama

    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…

  • Ginger Sheet Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

    October 22, 2017lectinfreemama

    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, so bringing a dessert to a family gathering can create what I’ve hilariously coined a “Plant Paradoxical Dilemma:” How do I make something I can eat that everyone else…
