Low Carb Portuguese Focaccia (Gluten Free or Paleo)

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist July 15, 2014

focaccia

I’ve been puttering around in the kitchen this summer experimenting with different gluten free and grain free flours both alone and in combination.

Learning how to easily bake delicious breads, cookies and pastries with various flour combos – both grain and non-grain based – is something I am very much interested in mastering.

My reasons are mostly practical …. baking is a very easy way to successfully incorporate a variety of grains and nuts into my family’s diet.  For example, one of my children won’t eat almonds but will happily eat the ginger snaps I make with sprouted almond flour.

I must admit, though, experimenting with flours is just plain fun even when a dish doesn’t turn out exactly as I had hoped!

Low carb focaccia is one recipe I recently made which my family thoroughly enjoyed.  You can see the focaccia end result in the picture above paired with seasonal, organic lychee.

Paleo Enchiladas (grain free with dairy free option)

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist June 28, 2014

paleo enchiladasBefore I reveal this very creative Paleo enchiladas recipe, let me tell you a little about the recipe creator, Tara Rayburn.

I first met Tara, author of the cookbook Essential Gluten-Free Recipes, in yoga class about 10 years ago.  She was pregnant at the time and we struck up a conversation about Labor of Love, a local birthing center in Tampa that offers women a fantastic natural birth experience as well as holistic prenatal care (this is where I delivered all 3 of my children).

A natural opportunity to talk to Tara about traditional cooking and the travels and teachings of Dr. Weston A. Price presented itself when her child began to experience a challenge with food allergies.

Grain Free Brownies Made with Nut Butter

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist April 1, 2014

In my opinion, the brownie is hands down the most important American contribution to the world of pastries. I typically make brownies for my family using sprouted flour (recipe here), but I have gotten into the routine of making them grain free with whatever sprouted nut butter I have on hand of late.

These grain free brownies are crazy good and I am in full anticipation of a lot of email love floating into my inbox from those of you who try them!

Grain Free Granola (Nutola)

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist February 24, 2014

One of the more popular articles on this blog is No Granola is Good Granola which outlines why granola or muesli made with rolled oats or other grains is not only very indigestible but potentially harming your long term gut health – possibly even contributing to autoimmune disease like allergies or worse.  Even homemade granola made with soaked or sprouted oats is not a very digestible choice at all which initially can come as a shock to granola lovers who thought it was a healthfood.

I don’t like to point out problems without also providing a solution if possible.  For you granola fans out there, here is a grain free granola recipe from San Diego Weston A. Price Chapter Leader Kim Schuette and founder of BioDynamic Wellness and GAPSInfo.com that should satisfy that hankering for a bowl of granola without compromising your digestive function.

Fit kitchen

By Fitness Editor Paula Jager CSCS

Fall is here, no doubt about it even here in sunny Florida, and I am getting into the swing of the seasonal shift in culinary pleasures in my personal fit kitchen.  It was an enjoyable but extremely busy summer.  If you follow the fitness posts on this blog, you may know we moved our CrossFit box to a new location and have experienced some serious growing pains along with the trials and tribulations of the construction process.  All good.

Whether you’ve experienced something similar or have 12 children we are ALL busy in our lives and everyday frenzied pace.  So what do we do — buy Swanson fake chicken broth, use processed vegetable oil and hit the drive-thru? Of course not but how does one keep up with or maintain the healthy traditional diet for ourselves and families in these light of these busy times along with keeping up our fitness?  It ain’t easy but I’d like to share my tips and recipes for what’s going on in my fit kitchen and hear about yours. . .
