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)

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)

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)

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 […]

Cultured Coconut “Sourdough” Keto Bread

Cultured Coconut “Sourdough” Keto Bread

Well it’s official. Actually it has been official for over a month but being the introverted lady that I am I have only recently felt ready to share. After a battery of blood tests I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease, which is actually quite […]

Probiotic Grain Free Granola (vegan, paleo and keto options)

Okay, before I begin my post I want to give a shout out to my wonderful husband, Steve, who moved to America (He is Australian) and has worked his bum off every way he can to support this post missionary life family. He started his […]
