Flap jacks have a rightful place in every American’s diet, regardless of nutritional preferences. This is why I went on a quest to discover a LOW CARB, high protein, nutritious pancake alternative! It could very well be contributed to being 37 weeks pregnant, and craving cray-cray carbs…so I must come up with recipes that satisfy the craving without compromising optimal nutrition.

When your little sister takes her first trip overseas & comes back itching to prepare a traditional meal she experienced…for us. Let’s just say we were not mad. Cassidy, 17 years old, had the chance of a lifetime to visit Haiti this summer with her dear friends originally from Haiti. I remember how impactful my first time out of the country was. Especially in an underdeveloped country – however, despite going without conveniences that I totally took for granted I relished in the experience and welcome future opportunities. Cassidy recounted witnessing a drastic change of pace, little electricity in many homes, and taking showers from a 5 gallon bucket. Proudly announcing she can take a full shower in less than half a bucket! America, take note! She also experienced the emphasis on community and fresh FOOD!

Living grain-free forces creativity. Apart from the incredible health advantages I’ve experienced, the intentional creativity is an added bonus. Enter the W R A P conundrum… Chipotle burritos, wheat wraps, pita bread, pita pockets, pita chips, flour tortillas, each one conveniently hold lots of deliciousness together making each bite an explosion of  D E L I S H. (Insert superhero cabbage here.) A sturdy, slightly bitter yet sweet green or purple biennial plant bursting with vitamin C & K. Also a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin B6 & folate. Cruciferous veggies like cabbage may also help stimulate detoxification. Just keep in mind that consuming too much at a time may result in bloating and gas… Cabbage, cabbage, the magical…wait. Never mind. This superfood is sturdy enough to withhold generous fillings, warm or cold without breaking unlike its cousin, sissy lettuce leaves.Read more …

Sweet Potato Chili

What’s better than chili on a cold Fall or Winter day? This year I went searching for a chili recipe without beans & sugar. Chili often has hidden sugar in tomato sauce or added to balance spice. I have been aware as of late to avoid for the most part FODMAPS, or foods that easily cause inflammation. Beans are one of the offenders (in some people).   Currently there is large quantities of Sweet Potato Chili in our freezer to have healthy quick lunch options prepared. It has a subtly sweet kick, and is full of filling protein! We also took this “hit” to our family Thanksgiving this year.   From our family to yours, enjoy!
