Instant Pot Pumpkin Oatmeal

Breakfast can be a more challenging meal to sneak vegetables in, and fortunately for picky eaters, you can hardly tell this pumpkin oatmeal contains zucchini. The addition of cinnamon and clove in the pumpkin pie spice increases the dish's anti-microbial properties. Feel free to adjust the ratios based on need. Ingredients 2 c.   Gluten-Free Steel Cut Oats 1 c.   Fresh Pumpkin Flesh (previously roasted) 2 c.   Plant-Based Milk (additive-free, homemade is best) 2 c.   Water 3 tbsp.  Pure Maple Syrup (or to taste) 3/4 tsp.  Himalayan or Sea Salt 1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice 1/4 large or [...]

Breakfast Hash

A breakfast hash is one of our favorite and most frequently made breakfast options because it is versatility. It is an easy way to scramble various sauteed and or raw vegetables into a mealtime that is typically very heavy in carbohydrates. I am not implying carbohydrates are horrible; rather, non-starchy vegetables are a priority.  We use this sausage as a flavoring to load veggies in at breakfast, so feel free to tweak it based on your needs. If you are slowly working your way to raw and needing more cooked veggies, start using the sausage as a [...]

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie Bowls are our go-to option for last-minute weeknight meals and tonight was the perfect example of this situation.  While dealing with high temperatures on the official first day of Autumn, I attempted to create a cold autumn-inspired Pumpkin Smoothie Bowl for dinner.  It was a hit!  Heads up, this smoothie bowl is super sweet and is more like a dessert, hence the Pumpkin Pie name. This recipe made three large servings.  Happy Fall!!! […]

French Toast

Our transition to a lower glutamate diet and working to lower glutamate didn’t mean that we had to remove all “fun foods.” We just learned how to make them healthier and consume them in moderation.

Keep in mind, there are several ways in which you can adapt this recipe to fit your family’s needs best, but the most important thing is to keep ingredients clean.

Easy Energy Balls

When we first started the transition to lower glutamate foods,  these energy balls became a staple in our house.  They were easy to travel with, served as a great accompaniment to a smoothie for breakfast, worked in lunchboxes, and also made a nice treat after dinner. With time the recipe morphed because these easy energy balls acted as a great vessel to hide dried herbs in. Please don’t be afraid to adapt this recipe, add new ingredients, and increase the nutritional density of these little treats. […]

Christmas Cinnamon Roll Loaf

There is something about Christmas that always makes me crave gooey cinnamon rolls from my childhood.  After beginning to remove sources of glutamate, 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 three years of being grain-free 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 [...]

Thank you, Leslie! […]

Breakfast Cookies (GF, EF, DF, SF)

A few years ago one of our incredible 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 very [...]
