nuPasta Review

By | Blog, Dining, Recipes | No Comments

It’s 4:25PM – 5 minutes to quitting time and it dawns on me… we have nothing in the house to make supper. The last thing I want to do it think about it. So I popped into the grocery store on the way home from work praying that something quick an easy would jump out at me.

Buddha Bowl

By | Blog, Recipes | No Comments

With the leaves turning color, and the inevitable change of season, this dish makes the perfect addition to any fall menu.  For anyone with a garden, you should have a lovely harvest of vegetables by now, and for those that do not have a green thumb, grocery stores have all kinds of fresh veg out right now.  Making a healthy Buddha bowl is a great idea post summer, as it is very healthy for those of you looking to get back into a routine after all those BBQs, and it is hearty enough to fill you up on those crisp autumn evenings!

By | Blog, health, Skin and Body Care | No Comments
If you’re like me – everything in life is gluten free. It’s not just what I put in my mouth but also what I put on my skin. I noticed a few years back that my skin started to react to products with wheat, gluten or oats in it. Great. Now what? Well I’ve been testing these products out for a while now and I’m so excited to share them with you! Here are my top five gluten free skin care products!

Breaded Pork Chops With Pomegranate-Chili Glaze

By | Blog, Dining, Recipes | No Comments

Is there any word more poignant and memory-laden for a celiac than “breaded”?  Most folks who talk to me about what they first cried about once they got their diagnosis was that they’d never be able to eat bread, or anything breaded again… That’s where we’re going today – making breaded pork chops, to eat with fresh corn on the cob and some sweet glazed carrots.  And for a touch of the exotic, we’ve added some pomegranate-chili jam to lend a deeply flavorful and spicy kick to this summer meal.

Beat The Heat – Thai Baked Sweet Potatoes

By | Blog, Dining, lifestyle, Recipes, Uncategorized | No Comments

It will come as no surprise to you, readers, when I tell you how pleased I am that the sun is out in full force. The peeling burn on my back is screaming with delight.
July in Calgary always brings Stampede week, and with the exception of last year, Stampede week means an entire ten days of hot, hot, heat. Throw in some hail and flash floods, and you have summer in good old YYC. We find ourselves now at 28 degrees at the peak of the day, and are currently anticipating a string of days reaching the low to mid 30’s. In other words, I do not want to turn my oven on while the sun is out. Sun time is for being outside – not cooking. Read More

Paella, Por Favor

By | Blog, Recipes | No Comments

Even if we can’t find all the special ingredients around here, I think we can all be forgiven for wanting to replicate a good paella – even if it means having to replace some of the key ingredients with something else in our pantries. The fact that it can be effortlessly made gluten-free is also a huge bonus, not to mention the fact that there’s only one pan to clean up after dinner.

Minimalist Baker’s Blissed Out Thai Salad

By | Blog, Dining, fitness, lifestyle, Recipes | No Comments

 

Guys, guys: it’s happening. It’s finally springtime. There are fuzzy purple buds on the lilac bushes, pink blossoms blooming, dandelions popping up, and the air doesn’t hurt my face. I’ll willfully ignore the itchy skin and stuffy sinuses in return.

When the air feels clean, I feel the need for a clean, refreshing dinner. It’s the time of year when I would rather chop veggies and appreciate the fresh air than fill the entire house with stale heat from the oven. Which is where this salad comes in. If you’ve been reading my recent posts, you’ll know how much of a fan of the Minimalist Baker I am. I can’t help it when Dana’s recipes are designed to be done in 30 minutes, use minimal dishes, and are almost always gluten free and vegan. Read More

Baked Crispy Tofu

By | Blog, Recipes | No Comments

I have to admit, while I have eaten tofu a number of times, I have never attempted to cook with it, or prepare it at home. In my mind I guess I sort of reserved tofu recipes for vegan, and being celiac, didn’t really think it was something I would add into my diet, however, after tasting it so many ways in restaurants, and expanding my palette with GF recipes, I decided to give it a whirl.
