• Black Forest Cupcakes

    October 17, 2017lectinfreemama

    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,…

  • How to Make Tomatoes Safer to Eat

    October 7, 2017lectinfreemama

    It’s been several months since I started the Plant Paradox Protocol, and my garden outside is dotted with plump, juicy red fruit. Yes, the tomatoes are in peak season. Rather than let them shrivel and decay on the vine, I decided to try my hand at peeling, de-seeding, and pressure cooking these end-of-summer staples. Also,…

  • 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…
