A few months ago, I came home to find a Tupperware container filled with fried chicken tenders. My first thought, as always, was, "What's in these?" Living at home with my parents, and eating the way that I do, my healthy habits have rubbed off on my father, so I was pleased to find that these were indeed "safe" for me to eat. After trying them, I knew I had to share the recipe with you all!
So about a month ago I got a strong craving for zucchini fritters. Actually, I saw them in the deli at PCC and they looked amaaaaaazing, but they were made with breadcrumbs and cheese, womp womp. So I did what I always do, I rushed to Pinterest for inspiration so I could make my own version. I looked at a handful of recipes and decided to just riff in the kitchen and see what would happen.
I love eggs for breakfast, but I'm usually on the go and don't have time to cook in the morning. I'm also not a morning person, so waking up twenty minutes earlier to cook is not happening. However, I always feel better when I start my day off with protein. I stay full for longer and have more energy. It's also important to eat protein upon waking when dealing with adrenal issues (I'll post about adrenal fatigue soon). All that to say, I like to prep breakfast in advance so I can grab and go in the morning. That's why these mini paleo quiche are perfect! I heat them in the oven while I get ready and eat them on the way to rehearsal. They're also GAPS friendly and easy to make. Here's what you need below.
Even though I've gotten a little lax on The GAPS diet, I am still completely grain free. This means that store bought bread, even gluten free, is not an option. I've experimented with making bread before with nut and coconut flour, but when I saw this recipe for paleo banana bread on Healthy Holistic Healing I knew I had to try it. The best part is there is NO added sugar. The bananas add just the right amount of sweetness to the recipe. I like to make a big batch and eat it in the morning for breakfast. I'm usually on the go, so I can just grab it on my way out the door and eat it on the way to rehearsal. And it's super easy to make! I made a few changes to my version, but this is what you'll need below.
I promised you recipes and what better way to start than with my favorite dessert! I’ve been having allergic reactions to certain foods lately, so I haven’t really been eating sugar since January. It’s been rough to say the least. I like my sweets. But it’s forced me to get creative in finding alternatives. Initially I figured I just wouldn’t have cake or dessert on my birthday. Then I denied that thought because it's crazy, and I brainstormed for the perfect alternative. Sweet. Potato. Pie.
