• Summer Strawberry Short Cake

    June 4, 2018lectinfreemama

    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…

  • How to Make Cassava Flour Taco Cups

    April 28, 2018lectinfreemama

    Cassava tortillas are both easy and delicious (check out my three-ingredient recipe), but even one tortilla can be too filling and too much starch for my keto readers. They’re also difficult to make crunchy without getting brittle. The solution? TACO CUPS. I am no food genius, but these are pretty darn clever, if I do…

  • 4 Low Carb Recipes for Shirataki Noodles

    April 21, 2018lectinfreemama

    What happens when you can no longer eat wheat flour noodles? You die of a broken heart. Just kidding. You eat noodles made out of vegetables, and shirataki noodles are probably the most beneficial veggie noodles available. They’re made from the flour of the konjac root, which is a traditional medicinal plant native to the…

  • Fettuccine Alfredo with Fresh Spring Vegetables

    March 24, 2018lectinfreemama

    There’s a real grieving process upon switching to a lectin-free diet. I don’t know what else to call it: the urge to eat old comfort-food favorites (like fettuccine alfredo) is so strong, many people have to remove them from the house altogether or even avoid eating out for several months. There were days I literally…

  • Chicken & Goat Cheese Enchiladas

    March 2, 2018lectinfreemama

    I thought it was a challenge making lectin-free chili, but chicken enchiladas proved to be a tough contender. How does one make enchiladas without corn, corn tortillas, cheddar cheese, and the dish-defining green chili sauce? It can be done. Fair warning, though: it’s a labor intensive process that requires at least an hour. The good…

  • 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. According to Google Dictionary, ravioli are “pasta envelopes containing ground meat, cheese, or vegetables.” Thanks Google,…

  • 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…

  • Garlicky Salted Rainbow Oven Fries

    January 17, 2018lectinfreemama

    It’s almost time for…. THE SUPER BOWL And since the Detroit Lions aren’t playing (just you wait till next year), I will not be painting my face, dying my hair, and setting a couch on fire in the street. I can focus my attention on more controversial things. Like what to serve at the 2-person…

  • 6 Hearty Salads for Cold Weather

    January 7, 2018lectinfreemama

    When I think of winter food, I think of stews, soups, meatloaf, and rich casseroles. I definitely don’t think of salad. Salads are for spring and summer, when we can munch on greens like rabbits and sip green smoothies outdoors! Allow me to change your mind. I was inspired by an earlier recipe I did…

  • 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…
