Tigernut Low Carb Cookies

Tigernut Low Carb Cookies

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

Coconut Za’atar Turkey

Zesty za’atar and creamy coconut make a yummy combo!

My low histamine, AIP diet for the most part lacks the flavor profile “acid”…no vinegar (high histamine) and citrus is often iffy.

Rainy Day Stew

A warming stew on a rainy day!

Here is what I did. Continue reading

Thick and rich ranch inspired dairy and egg free dressing

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
