Warning: These low carb cookies are dangerously good. OK. You have been forewarned! Seriously though, over the last 7 years I rarely ate treats of any kind, but I am moving in to a phase of my diet with more inclusion, rather than exclusion and so I decided to create a low carb cookie I could enjoy as an occasional treat. These exceeded my expectations. I will say they are definitely Continue reading →
I have just been introduced to the spice Sumac and I am a bit obsessed with it at the moment. My low histamine, AIP diet for the most part lacks the flavor profile “acid”…no vinegar (high histamine) and citrus is often iffy. So finding a spice that has a zingy acidic citrus note is a real Continue reading →
Officially under a “stay at home“ order during this COVID-19 Pandemic and I am craving all of the easily digestible comfort foods. This soup is sort of a spaghetti burger mash up. Lower in carb, gluten and dairy free, paleo…hits lots of metrics. Here is what I did. Continue reading →
I have been on a roll with my Instant Pot lately. Given all of the chaos right now with the Coronavirus pandemic I have been wanting cooked comfort food. I think I outdid myself with this one! So much Continue reading →
It rained off and on all day here in Miami and I felt a little bit of a chill. That had me craving a warming stew, so I pulled out my Instant Pot to get one going. It turned out super yummy, so I decided to share it here, so you (and I) can recreate it in the future.

First, peel off the seed layer and scrub or snip the roots off. Give the mat a good washing with a natural gentle dish soap. Then let the fun begin! Continue reading →
From time to time I get asked for a comprehensive list of the things I use and love. Among friends and family I am known as someone who does my research and is fairly picky, but hopefully in a good way. I am always looking for the very best products with the cleanest ingredients and ideally the greenest footprints. So for those of you that have asked over and over, here it is, finally!

I have been craving a creamy salad dressing lately, something flavored like traditional ranch dressing. Admittedly it has been so long since I have had real ranch dressing I am not sure I remember accurately what it tastes like, but nonetheless I am trying to recreate what I recall. I googled dairy free recipes but they all seemed to include something I couldn’t have like egg, garlic or vinegar, so I set out to make my own version. This was my first go at it and I think it came out really delish Continue reading →
