Greek Breakfast Salad; Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Yeast Free Recipe

Yesterday I posted my recipe for Lemon Greek Dressing. Today, a quick post for a breakfast salad. I never thought about doing this until I was talking to my sister about how I'm determined to eat 10+ servings of fruits and vegetables a day.  She recommended a breakfast salad. Sounds good to me! This also ties in with my "Veggies for Breakfast" Series. In case you're interested in seeing more posts, simply search for "Veggies for Breakfast" in the search bar on the right hand side of the … [Read more...]

Lemon Greek Salad Dressing – Yeast Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Recipe

Currently I eat gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and nut free but for the first 5 or so months after changing my diet I also cut out yeast. I'm severely intolerant to brewer's yeast and slightly intolerant to bakers yeast. Yesterday my cousin posted on facebook that he's going to be doing a detox diet for the next 4-6 weeks and he'll be cutting out all gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and nuts - he also won't be eating anything processed, with added sugars, and no yeast.  To make it harder, he's also … [Read more...]

Garlicky Kale with Pancetta (or Bacon); Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Nut Free Recipe

Here's post #2 in my "Veggies for Breakfast" segment. Garlicy Kale with Pancetta. As always, this recipe is naturally gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and nut free.  I served this with over easy eggs. It tasted amazing with the yolks broken over it. This is great as a dinner side dish too! I've been on such a pancetta kick lately! I mean honestly, who doesn't love bacon? Pancetta is Italian bacon - it's great because it stores well (it keeps for months), it's super flavorful, and it comes … [Read more...]

Sweet Potato and Pancetta Hash; Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Recipe

I've got a few collections of recipes in the works for the next few weeks.  First, veggies for breakfast, as usual they'll all be gluten free, soy free, dairy free, and nut free recipes.  I read an article the other day about how Americans eat... did you know that the median amount of fruits and eaten per day is 1.6 servings? No wonder we're so unhealthy! My family tries to eat the recommended amount of 5-6 servings per day, but that same article stated that people who eat "7 or more servings … [Read more...]

Fish Picatta (Lake Trout, Whitefish, Tilapia, Etc) ; Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Recipe

The men have been excited about the fishing trip we got them since Christmas, so early on Saturday (like at 5am) my hubby, BILs, step brother and step dad took off to catch us some lake trout to eat for dinner.  The problem - how do you cook lake trout? I had no idea, I mean, honestly I've only eaten it once at this amazing French restaurant in Chicago. After doing some research I realized that there aren't a lot of recipes online specifically for Lake Trout so I decided to modify a recipe that … [Read more...]

I've posted a similar recipe before but this one's a bit more clear.  I Love this quiche. Actually, everyone I know who's gluten free, dairy free, soy free, nut free does! It packs so much flavor (and even without cheese it almost tastes like it has it).  Back before I was a SAHM I would make 2 of these on a Sunday for us to take to work during the week.  During the first few months with my new baby my mom came over and would make a few.  Honestly, I was eating them for breakfast and lunch … [Read more...]
