Gluten-Free Paleo Carrot Cake

  From my family to yours! I would like to share my mom’s amazing carrot cake recipe for the holiday season. This recipe is true comfort food for me.   Not only does it tastes great, it also delivers a medicinal dose of cinnamon. You may be shocked by the 7 teaspoons used in the recipe, but if you divide the cake into 14 pieces, each serving has 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. This amount of cinnamon, if taken on a daily basis, has been shown to reduce glucose, triglyceride...

Gluten-Free Paleo Lasagna

  My husband, Alan, went to Italy with an exchange program when he was in high school. While he was there, his surrogate Italian mother taught him how to make the best lasagna you can imagine. I re-created that famous recipe in my book Slimming Meals That Heal, keeping the flavour but cutting the carbs and high-fat cheese.   I use zucchini in place of wheat pasta and the result is not only delicious, it’s healthy! The presence of anti-inflammatory carotenoids like...

Gluten-Free Buckwheat Crêpes

  In North America, buckwheat kernels or buckwheat groats are often called kasha. Despite the name, this is actually a wheat-free fruit seed that is related to rhubarb. It has many health benefits, one of which is its ability to balance blood sugar, thereby lowering the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.   These crepes can be made as a sweet or savoury dish. Just omit the honey for a savoury crepe. Note: If you can’t find buckwheat kernels in your local health food...

Gluten-Free Apple Berry Crisp

This dessert is so healthy...

What Is The Scoop On Corn Gluten?

Wait…what? Isn’t corn gluten free? Technically it is. Plain corn, the kind you eat off the cob, is gluten free (as long as it was protected from cross-contamination). Corn comes from a different family than the gluten-containing grains (barley, rye, wheat, spelt). It does however contain a protein that is also called “gluten” though it is not quite the same as the one found in the aforementioned grains. It becomes very confusing doesn’t it? After all, shouldn’t a food that includes...

Warming Quinoa Muesli

  Quinoa has become one of the most popular nutritional superstars of the decade. And with good reason! This small seed has an amazing nutty taste, is incredibly versatile, easy to prepare, high in nutrients and a complete vegetarian protein.    As people become aware of quinoa, they are surprised to learn it is not a true grain, but a seed. Like other seeds, it is high in protein and fibre for balanced energy and satiety. One cup of quinoa has about as much protein as...
