nightshade-free, gluten-free recipes


Saturday, November 02, 2013


I've been sort of busy lately and not blogging a lot, but I'm still on track and cooking every day. Nightshade-free experiment is still going on, and I've been eating more fish, grass-fed meat, pastured eggs, lean poultry, and NO pork or fatty poultry (in an attempt to get more omega-3s and less PUFAs/Omega-6s). I also sort of just don't really like pork for various reasons, so we've been getting grass-fed lamb bacon and homemade turkey sausage to fill the breakfast meat void.

Still eating gluten free and dairy free (except for pasture butter, which we eat a ton of).

Also, less sugar and fewer carbs... more protein, more fats, more vegetables. We probably have green leafy vegetables 3-4 days per week and crunchy/cruciferous vegetables every day... fruit every day, Sweet potatoes or squash nearly every day, frozen berries nearly ever day in my protein shakes.

I've been making gravies and French-style sauces a lot lately since they are generally nightshade free and are a great way to spice up bland meat and veg... nothing better than kale with gravy, or brussels sprouts with bacon/dijon glaze, yum.
