Pink Yogi Smoothie

Shortly after we moved, I discovered the Pink Yogi Smoothie, at a local juice bar.  It was so good that I immediately went home and tried to recreate this treat. A very sweet and creamy smoothie that tastes a lot like a milkshake- with less guilt and gastrointestinal distress.  While I haven’t made one of these for my son, it is very satisfying and I will occasionally use it as a meal replacement for those days I’m on the run.

Creamy Tomato Spaghetti Squash with Italian Sausage

In need of a simple weeknight meal that puts a spin on your traditional spaghetti?  While it may sound odd, adding a few cashews to this tomato sauce gives it a creamy and bold flavor that balances out the squash well.  While I understand many avoid using pork, other ground meat may be used instead. The recipe can also very easily be adjusted to be vegan. […]

Basil & Berry Smoothie

This simple smoothie works for a quick an easy breakfast, afternoon snack, or even a popsicle.   I will say that it is not very sweet, so if you’re just incorporating smoothies and are looking for a sweeter option, you may want to add a little unfiltered clean apple juice to make it a little more palatable.  I wouldn’t go overboard with the juice as it is a free sugar and can also contribute to yeast, imbalances, etc. This recipe can easily be modified to be used as a base for a smoothie bowl.  If doing so, [...]

Breakfast Cookies (GF, EF, DF, SF)

A few years ago one of our incredible REID Facebook group members, Wendy, shared a version of this recipe.  After seeing her post, I quickly got into the kitchen (because who wouldn’t want a cookie for breakfast) and they were an immediate hit. While I do not know the origin of the original recipe, we’ve adjusted it to fit our needs over time.  While this recipe is gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, casein-free, soy-free, etc. you may want to be cautious overdoing it with nuts as they are high in oxalate, contribute to constipation, etc.  This recipe is [...]

Mom’s Monday Morning Breakfast Shake

Did you know that protein powders are a source of free glutamate aka MSG? We avoid them like the plague. However, if you’re interested in adding a little more protein to your smoothie/shake toss in some hemp seeds.  This shake is a treat and should actually be called some sorta latte cappa-thing. […]

Herbal Gomasio

This has become our favorite go-to seasoning and a fantastic way to incorporate in a few additional herbs.  We most commonly use this on top of salads with a little olive oil and lemon or to season meat, vegetables, eggs and so on.  The best part of all, is that it is a great way to sneak in some of those beneficial and much needed herbs!  This recipe is easy to make and is made to last.  Ingredients 3 tbsp White Sesame Seeds 3 tbsp Black Sesame Seeds 1 tbsp Himalayan Salt 2 tsp Garlic Granules 2 tsp Milk Thistle [...]

Anti-Aging Face Oil

I’ve often struggled with dry skin and have always on the hunt for good moisturizing products. Unfortunately, the best products are often crazy expensive and contain a ton of unwanted ingredients, specifically those free containing glutamate.  I always get a little worried about using those products, not only because of my own health, but more specifically because of any reactions they may cause my son from kissing my face.  Because of this, I set off to make my own nourishing and anti-aging moisturizer.  I will add a drop or two of this to my face before [...]
