Egg Loaf

There’s two words you don’t usually see together. What is it? A Ketogenic diet created version of French toast. I found this recipe on YT here. I made mine with vegan butter, and a coconut-based vegan cream cheese, and when it was done it looked just like the one in the video. I wanted to … Continue reading

It whips up in a snap and is filling to boot. Enjoy! Ingredients: 1 pound- uncooked shrimp with or without the tail (next time I … Continue reading

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

We used to go to a Mexican restaurant called Don Tequila’s when we lived in Ohio. We enjoyed their Mexican Shrimp Cocktail so much that one of the servers gave me the ingredients list once. Not the amount of each ingredient, just the ingredient. I never made it until yesterday, and what I came up … Continue reading

Homemade Gluten-free, Dairy Free Bread

I’ve made this bread twice since finding it on Pinterest a few weeks back. This is the blog. It’s quite honestly the best gluten free bread recipe I’ve tried.

Mushroom Soup (vegan and dairy free)

  I’ve recently found out that I have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. It’s an autoimmune disease where your immune system attacks the thyroid gland. And on top of that, I’ve found out I’m allergic to dairy. If you’ve been here since the beginning, (exactly 135 posts ago), you can see from the very beginning that I’ve never eaten … Continue reading

(Psst, we eat this for dinner too…) El yummo! This recipe comes from the Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Cookbook by Michelle Tam and Henry Fong.  If you don’t … Continue reading

Pomegranate, Pear and Pistachio Salad

It’s funny how the weather affects my taste buds. The warmer it gets the lighter I like to eat. Are you like that too? I made this the other day when it was a beautiful sunny day with a high of about 80 degrees. It’s a refreshing, crispy, sweet and savory flavor that will wake … Continue reading

Mexican Quinoa Bowl

We probably eat quinoa several times a week. It’s so versatile you can really do just about anything you can dream up with it. I’ve made it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack time. It’s a complete protein and super healthy to eat when looking for protein options as a vegetarian. I love anything Mexican, … Continue reading
