Raspberry grain free granola

Vegan, gluten free, dairy free so Paleo as well

Grain free granola

I use raw almonds and pumpkin seeds, raw honey, sea salt... but the calculations are the same for other types I believe. A nice granola that is gluten free and vegan.

Wraps - gluten free

Love these wraps. They stay soft and variations include using vanilla to make them into crepes or adding flax and pumpkin seeds to add fiber and crunch. Use them for tortillas, sandwiches or a side. Sub melted coconut oil for ghee if you like. So fast to make! A family favourite!

Gluten free, dairy free, low carb, flour free chocolate cake - Amazing!

I could not believe it until my daughter made these. She has a LOT of allergies and her friend baked her a chocolate cake. Only eggs, sugar, chocolate and vanilla. A dark chocolate cake in texture and taste with chocolate mousse type topping!

Gluten free carrot pineapple oatmeal Muffins

We love these muffins. I wrote out the recipe as I made it the first time but I make small changes depending what I have in the house. The goal was some fiber and protein in a quick to grab breakfast. I used becel olive oil margerine but could not find the nutritional value for that so said "butter" in the recipe. You could use apple sauce instead of apple butter etc. They don't have the typcial gluten free texture or taste so no one realizes they are gluten free!

Pineapple Kale Juice - Cleanse Snack

This is a green slime that Dr. Oz recommends as often as you can drink (or stomach) it. It's not the worst thing I have eaten and I know it is good for me.

Flourless Lemon cake

A dense, rich delicious cake that got rave reviews from the family. The original recipe was for orange cake and had only almonds so you can definitely make it with only almonds! (no oats) and no margerine (I added that). Fiber and protein make this snack a mini meal. It uses WHOLE lemons in the cake with some preparation to remove the bitterness in the skin, but worth it for a really lemony taste. Sugar could be reduced to 1 cup. I liked the pie plate which allowed the cake edges to get a bit chewy but the middle was still moist. The original recipe used a 22 cm springform pan. The lemon drizzle on top makes it a fancy dish but also could be ommited. I calculated for the recipe without ommissions or decreases. In future I would double the recipe to have one cake for dessert and freeze the other in portion size snacks!

Tandoori chicken on the BBQ with sesame vegetables and brown rice

This is a flavourful way to do chicken. Tandoori spice is available in Indian stores and is dark orange. Europe's Best Nature balance is a bag of frozen vegetables in our local grocery which added to broccoli makes a generous portion and once steamed is flavoured with just a bit of sesame oil and sprinkled with sesame seeds. We ended with spicy orange dark chocolate pieces which I have not included in the calories. A very colourful meal!

TLC Lunch #1

Homemade beef vegetable soup with a spinach chef salad (we had it with lemon olive oil vinigarette - 35 cal for 2 Tablespoon). Gluten free.

TLC Dinner #1 (8 servings)

Crockpot ratatouille with baked spaghetti squash and fried parmasan chicken. All gluten free. You could delete the olive oil in the ratatoille and the olive oil becel in the spaghetti squash if you are concerned about the fat but we try to have a monounsaturated fatty acid at each meal - so those are the MUFA's

TLC Breakfast #1

Gluten free/dairy free and lots of fiber

Blueberries in Hot Quinoa cereal with added salba

Coconut squash chickpea curry - slowcooker

This is such a nice change to my vegetarian curry and a hit with the whole family. Omit the peanut or cashew butter if there are alergy worries and I always leave out the salt because my boulion cube seems salty enough.

Layered Pumpkin Bread

This is a favorite recipe I found in a magazine but I "play" with the ingredients. You can lighten the recipe with light cream cheese and yogurt, use splenda, part whole wheat flour, and use part apple sauce for the oil - but here is the recipe in its original form. Very pretty and satisfying too! Note that it is best made the night before you want to eat it!
Pumpkins are a tasty source of vitamins and minerals, particularly beta-carotene, vitamin C, and potassium. It also helps prevent arterosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, which can lead to strokes and/or heart attacks.
A study by the USDA indicated that diets high in pumpkin as a fiber source tended to curb the appetite, yet provided more food for the same calorie count. The subjects in this study also absorbed less fat and calories from their food.

Breakfast egg wrap

A delicious breakfast that can be made in advance and wrapped in saran wrap or eaten hot right away with your fingers. Great when you are running for the bus! Yummy cold too.

Gluten free Coconut flour recipes
Coconut flour: high fiber, protein; claims to reduce blood sugars. Good fats, also trans fats. Don't substitute coconut flour for wheat but 10% is OK as long as you add an equal amount of liquid. Gluten free and often dairy free recipes.
