French Toast

Our transition to REID 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. This French Toast recipe has become a weekend treat in our home, especially for our little guy. 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. Under tidbits below, you will find clean recipes and products for your bread, milk, and spice options. [...]

Legit Bread

A couple of years ago, we had removed, umm… pretty much everything, and were searching for a gluten-free, casein-free, grain-free, nut-free, soy-free, additive-free, gum-free bread. After 16 failed attempts at creating my own recipe,  I came across Jennifer of Predominantly Paleo.  Not only did she clearly understand the struggle, but she had also created the perfect Legit Bread Mix, fitting our needs. Her recipe only eggs, honey, olive oil, apple cider vinegar (or lemon), cassava flour, potato starch, psyllium husk powder, potato flour, sea salt, and baking soda.  Now here we are, a couple of years [...]

Coconut Vegetable Curry

I’ve always loved Indian food, but I never knew how to make it until I discovered a Coconut Curry recipe by Averie Cooks.  With a little work, I adapted this dish to make REID friendly.  Our once favorite store-bought curry dish can now easily be made at home and clean enough for REID.  This recipe is pretty flexible and can be adapted to fit your specific needs. Working to lower animal protein consumption? We’ve also enjoyed removing the chicken and subbing with chickpeas and zucchini.  Feel free to add or swap the vegetables to fit your [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]
