• 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”…

  • 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…

  • The Difference Between a Diet and a Lifestyle

    July 27, 2017lectinfreemama

      I hear people say about their changed eating habits, “It’s not a diet; it’s a lifestyle choice,” and I wonder what the heck that even means. I heard one woman say once, “Oh, I don’t miss bread because my way of eating is a lifestyle choice, not a diet.” I nodded in solidarity, and…

  • Swiss Chard Fritters

    July 25, 2017lectinfreemama

    Stuck on what to pack in your kid’s lunches? I’ve made these fritters three weeks in a row now–they’re easy, healthy, and Plant Paradox compliant. My toddler even eats them, despite containing Swiss chard. The key to hiding veggies is to grind them up, mix them with “better” stuff, and fry them in lots of good…

  • 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.…

  • Shrimp and Broccoletti Stir Fry over Toasted Sesame Cauliflower Rice

    June 25, 2017lectinfreemama

    If you’ve never tried cauliflower rice before, eating it with stir fry is a good way to start out. It does not taste like rice, nor does it have the same texture. You know me–the reluctant health nut–I’m never gonna tell you YOU’LL NEVER TASTE THE DIFFERENCE. Because you will. You always will. That being…

  • Chicken Cutlet with Cilantro Dipping Sauce

    June 21, 2017lectinfreemama

    I don’t know the secret to getting toddlers to eat green stuff. Mine typically predetermines that the green stuff is best suited for the floor during her meal; however, if we place the green thing in her mouth, she’ll often eat it. Some of this ended up on the floor, but some she actually ate.…
