Roasted Garlic Baba Ghanouj

Baba Ghanouj (Baba Ghanoush) is a naturally gluten-free, dairy-free Middle Eastern dish that is typically served with pita bread and/or vegetables. In our battle against Candida, I have found that dips and sauces have become more important to our daily routine. First, kids love to dip their food. Last night we had roasted cod fish, […]

Coconut Butter Cacao Nib Bars (Candida-Fighting, Paleo, Vegan, Sugar-Free, Whole30, ACD, GFCF and more!)

When I started this website, I set out to show the world that no matter how challenging the food restriction, there is a way to still enjoy what you have to eat. Heck, I don’t want you to enjoy your food; I want you to love your food! My second youngest daughter, at just 9 […]

Candida Friendly Cucumber Salsa

My long-time readers have seen me, and thereby this website, through a number of new eating adventures…new diagnosis and many trial and errors. As you know, I have celiac. Two of my 5 children show signs of gluten-intolerance but have not tested positive for celiac. Still, maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle has benefited them greatly. Even […]

If you have never enjoyed Elana Pantry’s Cherry Vanilla Power Bars, you are missing out. These Power Bars have just enough protein to tide you over and just enough sweet fruit to give you the energy you need to make it to the next meal. Elana’s bars got me through my first long-term out of […]

Paleo/Autoimmune Granola

Hi there! I know it has been a while but wanted to send a big “thank you” to everyone who has stuck by me and continued to support this site and helped my social media connections to grow, despite an extended time away. Today, I am sneaking in under the radar to enter one of […]

Baked Spaghetti with Zucchini Noodles

Recipe development is an interesting thing. No doubt we all go about it in our own way, but for me it starts with a memory, a craving or a challenge from a friend or follower. Yep, I have been known to turn my kitchen upside down to help someone reconnect with an old food love […]

Coconut Flour Country Biscuits

Biscuits are one of those cherished southern foods my grandfather was an expert at. Learning how to make these dairy-free proved to be a mild challenge…making them gluten-free?  Difficult to say the least. My largest challenge came after discovering that I am sensitive to nuts. Over the last several years I have played with dozens […]

Pomegranate Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Just over one month ago, I gladly shared the secret that got my children to eat brussel sprouts. These lemon-infused brussels made it easy to deceive my children into trying more than just one bite and helped them discover that they like brussels. Only, I don’t like deceiving my children. And while these brussels defy […]

Sweet Potato Hasselbeck Potatoes

If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, undoubtedly you have seen some of the photos of the lovely meals my family and I have been enjoying recently. Funny thing? In addition to our usual grain-free and dairy-free fare; every meal I have made and every meal I have photographed over the last five […]

Dairy-Free, Paleo Friendly Cheddar Cheese (Vegan Option Noted)

January 1, a new year, a new you. While many people use this day to mark their new, fresh eating habits; while many of my friends have begun their sugar-detox, juicing or Whole30 plan, my next Whole30 won’t begin until this Friday. “Why?” you ask? Well, first off, Thursday is my husband’s birthday. And while […]
