• Pressure Cooked Early Fall Chili

    October 9, 2017lectinfreemama

    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…

  • Prosciutto, Sweet Potato, and Arugula Salad

    September 18, 2017lectinfreemama

    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 toppings? Instead, I soldier on and chew raw greens for the next half hour until…

  • How to Make Cassava Flour Tortillas

    September 14, 2017lectinfreemama

    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 compliant item on the menu. I can’t replace many of these things for you–I won’t…

  • Easy Cinnamon Cassava Flour Pancakes

    September 2, 2017lectinfreemama

    Fall is in the air, and that means my local grocery store has placed the bins of cinnamon-orange pinecone wreaths out front for our olfactory enjoyment. I don’t know what kind of psychology they are pulling, but it’s working, because I want cinnamon everything. (I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin spice *ducks and runs*). This past…

  • 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…

  • 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

    July 30, 2017lectinfreemama

    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.…

  • Easy Snack: 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…

  • Egg, Spinach, and Goat Cheese Breakfast Burritos

    July 11, 2017lectinfreemama

    Before leaky gut, my husband and I were attempting to perfect the breakfast burrito. We made them for breakfast when guests came over, and we even ate them for Christmas dinner two years in a row. Homemade tortillas, sausage, sage, tomatoes, peppers, cilantro, sour cream….God, I’m drooling just writing about them. There is hope for…

  • 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…
