• Chocolate Chip Raspberry Muffins

    March 6, 2020lectinfreemama

    When I set out to make lectin-free muffins loaded with prebiotic fiber, I was expecting to make something like bran muffins–something “healthy” tasting. Like not the best muffins, but not so bad my sense of health-centered pride couldn’t overcome the taste and texture. After all, it took a certain sense of epicurean sacrifice to consume…

  • 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…

    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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Chicken Cutlet with Cilantro Dipping Sauce

    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.…
