    November 26, 2018lectinfreemama

    It’s simply not the holiday season without small slabs of sugar, butter, and flour. I’m talking about Christmas cookies, of course (well, on this site, lectin-free Christmas cookies ). Peanut butter blossoms, Mexican wedding cakes, cannonballs, cut-out sugar cookies, date cookies, gingersnaps–crunchy and sugary or soft and buttery. Pick your favorite, and usher in the…

  • Low Histamine Sweet Potato Soup

    October 17, 2018lectinfreemama

    Despite being symptom-free for about six months, the “September POTS/MCAS flare” did not escape me this year. During a flare-up, it’s like I suddenly become allergic to everything, so I’m left with few foods I can actually stomach. This means I make whatever I can throw into an Instant Pot with some broth. Then I…

  • Plant Paradox Mini-Bagels

    September 30, 2018lectinfreemama

    One of the ideas from my extensive list of lectin-free snacks is to make mini pizzas from grain-free bagels. However, compliant bagels can be a little difficult to find. Fortunately, we have The Plant Paradox Cookbook, and Dr. Gundry has a tasty recipe for Plant Paradox mini-bagels. They’re perfect for mornings or for turning into…

  • 31 Quick & Easy Lectin-Free Snack Ideas

    September 3, 2018lectinfreemama

    Frequently asked question: “What are your go-to lectin-free snack ideas?” Unfortunately, I’m a little boring when it comes to snacks. I generally snack on the same handful of nuts every single day and wait until dinner to unleash my inner kitchen Goddess. My daughter starts pre-school this week, so that’s all about to change. I…

    Are you the kind of person that brings a bag of chips and a tub of dip to a party? Cause I totally am…er, was. It’s not that I’m sometimes lazy or a procrastinator (just kidding, I am). It’s that I’ve got things to do, and spending 4 hours in the kitchen on a likely…

  • A Post About Yams

    July 7, 2018lectinfreemama

    If you thought yams and sweet potatoes were the same thing, you’re not alone. If you live in the US, it’s not even your fault, because we do label certain varieties of sweet potatoes as yams. Throw in the tropical varieties of root vegetables whose names all translate to “yam” and it’s nothing less than a YAM-tastrophe…

    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…

    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…
