See below for 5 important reasons to go grain free.

I chose this recipe from Halle Cottis’s Gluten Free and Grain Free Breads, Batters and Doughs because it uses coconut flour – my favorite grain free flour – and who can resist a carrot cupcake? [click to continue…]

One of the first changes to make when starting a real food diet is to improve the fats and oils you are eating.

Recipe: Grain Free Rustic Plum Tart (SCD, GAPS, Paleo)

Thumbnail image for Recipe: Grain Free Rustic Plum Tart (SCD, GAPS, Paleo)

For me, Italian plums mark the end of summer – this is their season. Considered a stone fruit – along with peaches, nectarines, apricots and cherries, they are the short lived treats of summer and need to be appreciated while they are available locally. Italian plums (prunes) appear at this time of year, ready to cook […]

Thumbnail image for Recipe: Cultured Bread & Butter Pickles

Have you seen most recipes for bread and butter pickles? They involve 4 – 5 cups of sugar and vinegar. While this will certainly preserve the slices of cucumber, it clearly doesn’t add value to the food – not to mention all the added sugar.
