Health Food Report


Lately I’ve been trying to be strict about eating gluten & dairy-free.  I have a lot of food sensitivities, and I am trying to re-engage myself in the kitchen making new things that are delicious and don’t upset my stomach.  I have found a wonderful new website called Elana’s Pantry that features recipes that are gluten-free, paleo, and more!  The above photograph is her Paleo Pumpkin Bread, which is absolutely delicious, and exactly the kind of food I’m craving this time of year.

I quickly ordered her cookbook.  All of the recipes use almond-flour and are gluten-free.  There are pizza crusts, pie crusts, breads, and lots of delicious foods that I can’t wait to make.

Other ingredients I’ve found to be helpful are:

Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour

Canned Organic Pumpkin

Fine Ground Celtic Sea Salt

There are additional products that Elana recommends, and I’m slowly trying to re-stock my pantry and make my own creations in the kitchen.  Last night, for example, I grabbed brown rice penne pasta, dredged thin chicken breast in egg wash and almond meal, sauteed that in olive oil until crispy.  Then I grabbed a jar of Muir Glen Organic marinara sauce, shoved in a mix of spinach and arugula leaves, added some more sea salt and Italian spices and simmered until the greens wilted.  I served it up, and it was really filling and delicious.

Here’s to healthier eating!  What are your favorite gluten & dairy-free recipes?
