Recipe: Confession Granola (Gluten Free)

Confession Granola #GlutenFree

Confession Granola #GlutenFree

I have a confession. I made granola. Really good (too good, actually) granola.

Why is that a confession? It’s a confession because I don’t eat many grains (usually only in the form of white rice, if at all) and I make a pretty big stink about sticking to that. By making granola, and using (gluten-free) oats (because oats are what true granola has), and it being granola that is impossible to only eat a few bites of… well, I ate a lot of it. So there, I admit it. I’m not perfect and I ate oats. (It was really good though.)

Recipe Cinnamon Apple Chicken n Buttered Purple Cabbage Gluten Free

 

Cinnamon Apple Chicken with Buttered Purple Cabbage

Cinnamon Apple Chicken with Buttered Purple Cabbage

My Cinnamon Apple Chicken with Buttered Purple Cabbage is soooo good. It’s comfort, health, ease, and deliciousness all wrapped up in one meal and tied with a bow. Cabbage and apples are a great combo that everyone will love.

Most of my chicken dishes are made in a slow cooker, but once in a while, I want some golden (pasture raised organic) chicken skin to sink my teeth into, such as the gluten free recipe below (and also this staple in our house: Garam Masala Orange Chicken). I buy my pasture raised organic chickens here (also available soy-free, meaning they didn’t feed the chickens any soy). Good Earth Farms is also where we bought our pasture raised turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas. A testament to the quality and deliciousness of their poultry was when my mom, who is always extremely(!) honest, exclaimed three times how much she enjoyed the turkey and she’s never been a “turkey” person.

Recipe Easiest French Toast Ever (Gluten Free)

Here’s a simple french toast recipe that my kid (and husband) love. It’s just toasted paleo bread with grass fed organic ghee, and organic maple syrup… But, surprisingly it tastes quite a bit like french toast, because the bread has both an eggy flavor and texture. It’s so easy that your kiddos can make it all by themselves, supervised while using the toaster.

*I consider this a paleo recipe (though perhaps not super strict paleo) because of the use of ghee or high vitamin butter oil.

Kid loving goodness

Recipe Paleo Cinnamon Sugar Bread Gluten Free

by Kristen Suzanne in almond flour, ghee, gluten free, paleo

 

Cinnamon Sugar Bread (Paleo with coconut oil)

Cinnamon Sugar Bread (Paleo with coconut oil)

I love baking, and ever since I started eating an omnivore diet that was paleo -like, I love it even more because, maybe it’s just me, but baking paleo goodies is mega easy. And if you have a kitchen helper, all the better. I think what makes my Cinnamon Sugar Bread recipe extra special is that Kamea helped me create it.

Recipe Slow Cooker Caramelized Onions

Slow cooker caramelized onions.

Slow cooker caramelized onions.

I looooove caramelized onions and so does Kamea.

The proper way to cook them on the stove takes time at the stove for about a half hour, cooking them on low, and stirring them every so often. That’s easy and all… But I think I love this way even more. Using my slow cooker allows me to just toss them in the mini slow cooker for a few hours or so and they’re ready. No watching the stove required, no “timing” of meal parts because they’re just waiting for me, and my big enameled cast iron pan isn’t being used so I can use it for other things if needed. Oh, and they store quite well for a couple of days in the refrigerator if needed.

Recipe Rosemary Lime Wild Caught Salmon

by Kristen Suzanne in fish, ghee, gluten free

Wild caught salmon is a staple in our diet now, and it is soooo good. As most of you know, salmon provides anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids as well as a number of other key nutrients for a healthy body (protein, phosphorous, vitamins D, B12, B3, and selenium). If you missed my last post on how to thaw and properly store fish, check it out.

When we were vegan, the one thing Greg really missed was fish, so as you can imagine… when we went to a high quality omnivore diet, he was stoked to eat fish again. However, we don’t eat just any salmon. It must be wild caught or we’ll have nothing to do with it. Wild caught fish is healthier for the environment and for us. Oh, Kamea loves when I make wild caught salmon, too.

EASY Beauty Routine – Oil Cleansing

I’ve mentioned on a few occasions about one of the biggest and quickest improvements I experienced going from decade-long-vegan to omnivore was improvement in the condition and aging of my skin. I also mentioned a few times about how ridiculously easy (and can be inexpensive) my beauty routine is. Well, as you might imagine, a lot of ladies wanted to know what I do for skin care.

Beauty Routine Oils

Beauty Routine Oils: Coconut Oil, Sea Buckthorn, High Vitamin Butter Oil / Coconut Oil Blend

So… apart from eating a skin loving diet high in skin enhancing nutrients (retinol, collagen, essential fatty acids just to name a few), I have a simple skin care routine.

Gluten Free Paleo Recipe: Strawberry Muffins

Baking is one of my favorite things to do. Well, truth be told, I love all cooking and food prep. It’s my “me time” and a chance to be creative. When I’m in the kitchen, I’m relaxed and enjoying myself.

Strawberry Muffins (Paleo, Gluten Free)

Today, I’m sharing some delightful homemade muffins we like, especially during the summer when organic strawberries are in season. They are simple and delicious. I enjoy them (smothered in grass fed butter, of course) with a nice cup of organic hibiscus tea as part of my breakfast or for an afternoon snack.
