Raw Gingerbread Cookies

by

Medjool dates are creamy and LEGAL in my diet!  I know the world is pretty anti-carbohydrate, but after having Lyme, I revamped my diet.  Gone are the high fat, high protein days and I now live in the world of massive amounts of fruits, veggies, and leafy greens.  We rarely eat grains but when…(Read More)

Even though fruits, veggies, and leafy greens should be the base of our diet, life happens and sometimes we need to have dessert.  And if we do, let’s make it nutrient-dense! Pumpkin is a very low calorie vegetable (actually technically a fruit) that is packed with antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, E…(Read More)

Here’s an amazing frozen dessert recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth this summer!

Cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice always remind me of fall! Even though it is now summer, these are a delicious and easy recipe to serve for breakfast, as a snack, or even as a side with dinner.

I promise that you won’t know this is based in avocado.  It got 2 thumbs up from Mr. Konoske and he has already asked for a repeat!   This is easy and full of healthy fats. And, raw cacao has more than 300 phytochemicals and 4 times the anti oxidants of regular…(Read More)

Sorghum flour is a great option for gluten-free baking. It has been popular in  Africa, The Middle East, and Asia for thousands of years and is slowly gaining popularity in the U.S. Unlike other gluten-free flours, sorghum flour is very smooth in texture and mild it taste, making it a great addition…(Read More)

A lot of homemade ice cream recipes require an ice cream maker. I don’t have an ice cream maker, which is one of the many reasons why I like this recipe! Rosemary is not only delicious but it has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. Years ago it was used to improve…(Read More)

I absolutely believe in the 80/20 rule.  What is the 80/20 rule?  It’s that we should eat whole foods, minimally processed, 80% (or more) of the time.  I don’t think sugar is in our best interest, in general. Sugar does bad stuff.  For example, it: Depresses the…(Read More)

It was a bumper crop for rhubarb and there’s enough in the freezer for many of these delicious cakes!  This can be or should be an upside down cake, however my picture shows it non upside down.  I used a springform cake pan and so I just unhinged the straps and had…(Read More)

It’s that season again. You know, the season when you can’t leave your car unattended because someone will fill it full of zucchini?! Well, I left my garden unattended and obviously someone came in and planted more zucchini’s while I was sleeping.   They multiply like little rabbits.   Anyway…(Read More)

Party Banana Bread!

by

Two of my favorite things, together. We’ve been eating our share of grain free banana bread at the Konoske house lately.  Partly because it seems we’ve had a surplus of banana’s and so I freeze them, and partly because my husband LOVES this new creation.  I must say, the cranberries…(Read More)

  Over the weekend we got some much needed rain.  And then more rain.  And more rain.  So, I made good use of my time and fired up the oven.  The result is a few new grain free cookie recipes!  They were a hit with Mr. K as well as…(Read More)

  I truly haven’t made a batch of brownies since I went grain free 2 years ago.  Now, in the day, I used to LOVE brownies.  But a picky belly awhile ago changed my usual food intake.  I got pretty used to be grain free and so just stayed that way…(Read More)

  Perhaps one would presume that all of us foodies would know how to cook, but speaking for myself, I grew up on casseroles.  Not that casserole’s can’t be healthy but it was time for a different skill set.  And thankfully, Bastyr University offered us cooking classes. In our first cooking…(Read More)

  I had my own digestive disturbances about 2.5 years ago.  After some basic lab work I hadn’t identified the cause.  Then, I stumbled onto a condition termed SIBO – Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth.  I’d never heard of it but it resonated with what I was going through.  I…(Read More)
