Christmas Cinnamon Roll Loaf

There is something about Christmas that always makes me crave gooey cinnamon rolls from my childhood.  After beginning REID, I thought those days were long gone until I found this recipe by Laura Lea Balanced. The first time I made her recipe we were coming off of a 3 year grain-free version of REID and were slowly working to incorporate more grains.  Because of this, I significantly altered her original nut-free recipe by cutting back on the grains, adding almond flour, removing apple cider vinegar/baking powder, increasing baking soda and adding lemon juice to meet our current [...]

Smothered Apple Bowl

It is not uncommon for many REID families to struggle with egg allergies or egg sensitivities.  Because of this, finding easy and tolerated breakfast options can feel overwhelming. Fortunately, a few years ago one of our incredible admins from the REID FB group, Leslie, shared this simple and versatile breakfast/snack idea. This recipe has been a staple in our house ever since. Thank you, Leslie! […]

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 [...]

Magnesium Muffins (Egg-Free, Nut-Free, Grain-Free )

Early on in our journey, we were searching high and low for a natural source of magnesium that our son would actually consume.  We landed on pumpkin seeds as they have some of the highest sources of magnesium found in whole food, but I struggled on how to get him to eat them…thus this “magnesium muffin” recipe was created. Using pumpkin seeds as the flour and pumpkin flesh as the base, gives new meaning to true pumpkin muffins. So why magnesium? Magnesium protects against glutamate damage, sits on the NMDA glutamate [...]
