Gerson Oatmeal Comfort

If you are looking for a simple good for you oatmeal to start your morning now that "Winter is Coming" look no further.  This couldn't be easier or more satisfying.  If you are on Gerson Therapy and or doing a lot of juicing The Gerson Institute recommends starting your day with oatmeal to prepare your intestinal track (creating a soft cushion) for the amount of juices that will be following throughout the day.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup of gluten free organic oats
  • 1 cup of water (use distilled water if you are on Gerson Therapy)
  • Handful of raisins or currents
  • Few un-sulphured apricots if desired
  • 1/2 tsp honey (optional)
Instructions:
  1. Place oats, water and dried fruit in small pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Cover and reduce heat to low
  3. Simmer on low for approx 20 minutes
  4. Mix in honey and serve with a glass of orange juice.

Cold Weather...Red Hot...Beet Turnip Soup


Is on the menu!!!  If you are still in the midst of continuous cold weather, snow and rain then this soup is for just for you to pull you out of your long winter blues and make your belly warm and happy!!  The turmeric is an awesome addition to this soup for not only flavor but good anti-immflamatory qualities but if you don't have any on hand you can make it without and I guarantee it will still be amazing.  Stay warm and Enjoy!!

Lamb Burgers with Pesto

Are you craving Lamb tonight?  As we approach Fall our cravings begin to change and this is definitely one of those fall meals that will satisfy everyone at your dinner table.  Well that is of course if you don't have kids under the age of 10...getting them to even smell a lamb burger is an accomplishment.  Hopefully your kids aren't as picky as mine!! 

The herbs and spices in this dish bring out something amazing in the meat so don't leave those out and never leave off the special nut pesto sauce on top as that brings the dish to the next level!  Everyone who has been a guest at our house loves the dish.  Get after it and enjoy!

Mmm Mmm Good GF Granola

We spent last weekend in Portland, Oregon for my nephews wedding and had an incredible time catching up with family.  My older sister who used to not cook or know how to really eat healthy until I showed her how easy it is about 9 years ago, has now surpassed me on many things in the realm of cooking healthy and I couldn't be more proud of her.  It is so awesome to be able to share ideas and recipes with your own family and learn new tricks here and there when you all believe how important it is to eat clean and listen to what your individual bodies are telling you.  Who would have thought that my sister would be such a pro now on knowing what to eat.  This gluten free granola recipe is one of hers and it is the bomb!

Great Friends Great Quiche!

Spending time with good friends is priceless and I cherish every moment I get to spend with quality people eating quality food!  Brunch the other day brought some good friends together not only for me but also for my boys...time with the ladies while the boys had a playdate always works in our favor!   So a nice grain free quiche was in order.  I've been making this quiche for years!  This is a recipe that I morphed from one of my very very first "Gluten-Free Baking" books that my mother-in-law bought me over 15 years ago by Rebecca Reilly.  Its still a go-to book for me especially around my kids birthdays.  I realized when the ladies all asked me for the recipe that I had actually never blogged it so it is about time.  The crust is from one of my other recipes, the Paleo Raspberry Streusel Bars minus the almond extract.  I hope you try this one out this summer and enjoy!

Gingered Squash Sweet Potato Pie

I just love when I have a recipe that is so good I can tweak and morph it into something new with exciting seasonal flavors. Who can resist a good Winter Comfort Food side dish? Not me!  This is a version of my Sweet Potato SoufflĂ© recipe but using less potato and adding a butternut squash and delicate squash if you happen to just have one on your counter.  If you don't know what a delicate squash is, definitely look it up and give it a try this time of year.  Fresh Harvest is keeping me honest on eating seasonal and again I have incorporated something into our diet that I would have never tried before.  I've also added the ginger and cinnamon to this creation and asked my husband what flavors he could taste..."pumpkin" was his reply...oh man totally pumpkin pie flavor without the pumpkin.  I've made this with and without the maple syrup and both ways is delicious so I will say maple syrup is optional unless you are actually going to make this into a dessert.  Make your favorite crust and you'll have the healthiest most delicious dessert  to serve.
