Why I Haven’t Been Blogging: A TMI Adventure.

Why I Haven’t Been Blogging: A TMI Adventure.

Folks it has been far too long. And in truth I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to revive this blog, or myself in terms of creating and sharing my favorite foods and creations. As I like to write in “bites” I […]

Cultured Beetroot Cauliflower Hummus

Cultured Beetroot Cauliflower Hummus

That’s a mouthful! But seriously it is a tasty mouthful. So… confession. I made this MONTHS ago but it was right about when I was becoming allergic to everything. It tasted so so good but then I couldn’t eat much. I’m about to give the […]

Cultured Butternut Squash Noodles (paleo, vegan, AIP)

Cultured Butternut Squash Noodles (paleo, vegan, AIP)

This is a ferment for those of you who really miss pasta or simply love butternut squash. It is lovely with a coconut bechamel poured over the top or cashew sauce if you can tolerate nuts… (I can’t at the moment). I like to eat […]

Preserved Lemons (Keto, Paleo, Cultured, Vegan, AIP)

Preserved Lemons (Keto, Paleo, Cultured, Vegan, AIP)

It has been a wee while since my last post. We have had a couple emergency room visits in the past week and a half and are adjusting to some new physical limitations. Adjusting to a Hashimoto’s life has been a challenge to say the […]

Vanilla Cinnamon Cold Brew Kefir for a Happy Brain (keto, vegan & paleo options)

Vanilla Cinnamon Cold Brew Kefir for a Happy Brain (keto, vegan & paleo options)

The school year has begun and I have not quite hit my rhythm yet. Kids and homework, yes. Studying for my Nutrition course and blogging? Not so much. One thing at a time. Right now my youngest is happily attending her first day of preschool […]

Truffle & Beetroot Cultured Barbecue Sauce (nightshade-free, keto, paleo, vegan)

Truffle & Beetroot Cultured Barbecue Sauce (nightshade-free, keto, paleo, vegan)

This recipe is an adaptation of my cultured barbecue sauce. As I said in that post, among the first ferments I attempted was barbecue sauce. Since my Hashimoto’s Diagnosis I have been honing what I can and cannot consume… so this barbecue sauce is sans […]

AIP Peppercorn Kimchi (vegan, paleo, keto)

AIP Peppercorn Kimchi (vegan, paleo, keto)

Let me tell you. I miss ginger. But I don’t miss the pain. As it turns out I am incredibly allergic to the lovely root which was a big bummer as it filled half my pantry. I literally had to mourn the loss of it. […]

Fermented Red Sauce (Nightshade-Free Ketchup)

Fermented Red Sauce (Nightshade-Free Ketchup)

Since my diagnosis with Hashimoto’s I’ve had to avoid a lot of things I love. I can’t say ketchup is up there at the top but I do like it once in a while with truffle salted sweet potato fries. As nightshades are no longer […]

Cultured English Style Mustard (Spicy Yellow Mustard)

Cultured English Style Mustard (Spicy Yellow Mustard)

I am an unabashed mustard fan. Which is great considering things like ketchup and barbecue sauce are off the Autoimmune Protocol Menu. I often have a jar of cultured mustard in the fridge that I’m working through and one on the counter fermenting. Especially now […]

Cultured Swedish Turnips with Cloves (vegan, paleo, keto)

Cultured Swedish Turnips with Cloves (vegan, paleo, keto)

Fermented Swedish Turnips (Rutabaga) I did this recipe in a 68oz pickle jar but you can adjust proportions if you like. Fermenting lids and weights are helpful but you can do this with stainless steel, plastic lids or a swing top like this one as […]
