Grain-free Gluten-free "Bread"

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 27, 2013 at 8:29am

I saw a recipe for this bread on the terrific blog Against All Grain. As I’ve noted before, I find eating even gluten-free grains inflammatory (and with a bigger carbohydrate punch than I can get away with, unless I want to gain weight and feel exhausted…).

Quinoa Cakes topped with…a Poached Egg. But of Course.

Here’s a thing: my husband and I are divorcing. It’s exactly as sad and stressful as one might imagine, so I’ve been taking extra steps to take really good care of myself. I already know that eating corn and rice makes be feel pretty lousy – not as lousy as eating gluten – but lethargic…

Certainly green juices are all the rage right now and I wouldn’t blame you one bit if you were rolling your eyes at the trend.

Grilled Lamb Chops with Gremolata | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

I know, I know, I should have posted this before Easter, but lamb with gremolata is lovely all spring (year) long, so make it this week instead! I had let gremolata – a relish of minced lemon zest, garlic, and parsley – slip out of my rotation but it’s back with a vengeance, thanks to…
