Pigs In A Blanket

Okay, throwing this all out here as I make an effort to share how we manage a lower glutamate diet as a lifestyle instead of a “temporary diet.”  At the time of writing this, we’ve been on a very clean low-glutamate diet for almost 7 years. What we are eating today is different from our deepest healing days of using food as medicine. Fall is officially here, and with two “boys” in the house, we have what seems like constant football games on.  Nothing screams football more than pigs-in-a-blanket, so I decided to make our son [...]

Spicy Caesar Dressing

I recently attended a birthday dinner for one of my good friends, and her husband served this AMAZING Wasabi Caesar Dressing.  I admit I was unsure of what to think about it initially, but I was blown away with how good it was, and I have been dreaming about it ever since.  It was literally one of the best salad dressings I’ve ever had! Since dairy and I don’t mix well, I was on a mission to create my own, and after a few failed attempts, I landed on this adaptation of the Minimalist Baker (I [...]

Smothered Apple Bowl

It is not uncommon for many 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 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 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 [...]

Peruvian Inspired Chicken Soup

One of our favorite Peruvian restaurants in Charlotte makes this amazing chicken and rice soup.

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 [...]
