Welcome to my Gluten and Dairy Free Recipe Index. Every recipe here (on my website) is gluten free. On some occasions I do use butter or ghee, but I will always provide alternatives like coconut, avocado, or macadamia oil. We really are spoiled for choice.
This page will be changing quite a bit as I post all the recipes, so be sure to join my mailing list to get all the updates.
And, they have to be tested on the fussy eaters as well first! These are the fastest and easiest gluten and dairy free recipes I know to give you more time back for life's adventures.
Here you will find simple ideas (with the recipes right here) and of course, links to the detailed information.
Here are my top 4 gluten and dairy free snacks ideas. The flatbread recipe is coming soon.
Today's lunch is Salmon Avocado Cup. This gluten and dairy free recipe is just fast, simple and yummy! That recipe is coming soon.
Roast chicken (with fennel and orange), roast carrots, and boiled baby potatoes. Substitutes can be steamed zucchini or broccoli. Recipe coming soon.
One of my favourite drinks to keep me hydrated is Coconut water. My recipe is simple:
This is perfection for my salty taste buds. If you have sweet taste buds, you can reduce the water portion by half.
I consider a berry smoothie a staple. It will fit under food as medicine and food as fuel. And snacks... so my FAV recipe is on its way.
Some of these ideas do not need recipes. They are just as stated. But for the avocado mousse; baked apple and the pecan blondies - these recipes are coming soon.
* ABC - Almond, Brazil and Cashew nuts. This is my preferred nut paste just to get a broad range of nutrients. You can use whatever one you love, but maybe vary it from time to time to give your body different nutrients.
You probably know by now that I believe food is medicine. I'd like to recommend these highly beneficial herbal teas and hot drink to help you start your day.
#1. Tulsi tea, also called Holy Basil tea. It is stimulating, so do not drink it past 2:00 PM.
#2. Burdock tea. This tea is fabulous for a number of things, but I like it best at 10:30 AM in the morning to help initiate a bowel movement. Too much information?
#3. Ginger tea. Here's the recipe:
#4. Turmeric Latte. There are many health benefits of turmeric. It aids depression, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, and much more. It is a relative of ginger, and the anti-inflammatory properties help to calm us down. Turmeric is also an excellent source of phosphorus which is critical for healthy bones, teeth and even our DNA.
#5. I also drink the coconut water, water and salt (recipe above) hot if I want a warming pick me up.
And just fyi... ALL of the recipes here are food as medicine... I am heavily influenced from 4+ years of studying TCM - Traditional Chinese Medicine (20 years ago... still using it). I LOVE IT!!!
These are my favorite foods to be used as fuel: salt and oil! Add two teaspoons of ghee and 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon of salt to any hot cup of beef or chicken bone broth. Or you can add 1 - 2 Tablespoons of any healthy oil like coconut oil, macadamia nut oil, or avocado oil to the broth.
Add coconut oil to your blueberry smoothie. You've heard of bullet proof coffee... well you can do this to any drink you like... pretty much.
Add 1 - 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to anything. Or just eat a tablespoon of coconut oil when you need energy. Tastes yuck - but does the job!
