• 3 Lectin Free Alternatives to Mashed Potatoes

    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…

  • Black Forest Cupcakes

    Black Forest cake is a tradition for my husband and me. It’s the cake we ate when we got engaged, the cake we ate on our wedding day (and anniversary), and now the cake I ate on my 30th birthday. Except this time, my husband made me my very own low-lectin compliant Black Forest cupcakes,…

  • 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. This past weekend, I made really easy cinnamon pancakes with cassava flour.…

  • Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Brown Butter Basil Sauce

    August 18, 2017lectinfreemama

    I miss Italian food. A lot. I try to avoid even going to Italian restaurants because I inevitably get to watch others twirling their tomato sauce drenched spaghetti with extra mozzarella, while I drown my sorrows in an iceberg lettuce salad and an abundance of red wine. One of the best Italian staples is gnocchi.…

  • 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…

    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…
