These gluten free Goji Power Bars were a hit at the gym the other day.
My fellow gym rats were delighted when I brought these Paleo friendly, high protein, gluten free snacks to the gym last week. The consensus? These gluten free power bars hit the spot.
Made with healthy, high protein almond flour and nutritious goji berries, the gang wolfed these down, then asked for more. I promised them I would post this recipe for gluten free power bars and so ... read more →

This gluten free bread is easy to make, tastes great, and is full of nutrient dense ingredients.
Gluten free isn’t necessarily healthy, especially when it comes to bread. Here’s a gluten free bread recipe, made of high protein ingredients that won’t leave you dragging. I’m loving every slice that comes from this new Paleo diet friendly bread recipe.

This simple gluten free shortcake recipe is easy enough to make with your children
One summer evening as I baked countless batches of gluten free cookies, my older son popped into the kitchen. Determined to join me in my culinary adventures, he decided to make gluten free strawberry shortcake from scratch (as in using no cookbook or recipe). The twist? He’s a chocolate lover, so he made Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake.
As you may know, Jewish mothers tend to think of their sons ... read more →

Last night I had a hunkering for gluten free peanut butter cookies. I went over to Elise’s site, Simply Recipes, and found a yummy looking recipe for gluten-filled Peanut Butter Cookies. I experimented a bit, made a couple of changes to her recipe and came up with a nice gluten free cookie dough. I then decided that it might be fun to make a gluten free peanut butter and jelly cookie.
So here you have it, high protein, gluten free peanut ... read more →

These healthy and simple energy bars are packed with energy.
Apricot Power Bars are a great grab and go breakfast or the perfect pick me up on the way home from the gym. Kid-friendly (with white chocolate) and Paleo-friendly (with dark chocolate, or no chocolate at all) I’ve made these gluten free bars each and every way.
I used white chocolate chips from my local Whole Foods when I made these for the boys. The chips come in a little unmarked ... read more →

I was working my way through the Cook’s Illustrated website the other night and came across an amazing recipe for Triple Chocolate Espresso Brownies. As soon as I laid eyes on that recipe I knew I had to create a high protein, gluten free version. While my husband enjoys all of my gluten free chocolate recipes, this is his fave. He even left a special love note on the fridge for me late last night after sampling them.
Of course this ... read more →

This high protein, dairy free Chocolate Mousse is made with anti-oxidant rich dark chocolate and contains no dairy products –a double win. I’ve also used coconut palm sugar rather than agave to sweeten it. Many people do not like agave nectar, believing it is an overly processed sweetener (the agave nectar I use is pure and organic). I don’t mind agave, though I thought the palm sugar would be a nice alternative sweetener for those that do.
Summer is moving along ... read more →

I originally posted this date sweetened, gluten free muffin recipe the year before last in my Great Agave Debate post. Because it was part of something so much bigger, it kinda got lost in the mix. I’m re-posting it because I think it’s an easy, super tasty, healthy recipe that will please both agave lovers and haters alike.
For more information on agave, please check out my Great Agave Debate post and all of the amazing reader comments and debate ... read more →

I met Silvana last year at Blogher Food and felt an instant connection with her. She is magnetic in a smart, sophisticated, New York kinda way, and I was more than happy to spend a full day at the conference sitting with her for every session and sharing breaks together chatting.
During the day, our stories unfolded, and we learned that in terms of our children, we have much in common. Silvana, the former editor-in-chief at Rachael Ray Everyday, began cooking ... read more →

I’m kinda obsessed with these deviled eggs, and given that Easter is near, what could be more appropriate? They’re easy to make, full of protein and naturally gluten free to boot. My boys love to chow down on them after school and I like to snack on them all day long. Deviled Eggs are perfectly simple and elegant for a party, and make a great casual everyday type gluten free snack as well.
When I make these, I like to double the recipe below, ... read more →

I have been a huge fan of Michael Ruhlman’s book Ratio for quite some time. His work really came to life for me when I saw him speak at Blogher Food last year. He conveys his love of good food in a passionate manner, which I find compelling.
So, when my friend Silvana invited me to participate in this month’s Ratio Rally, I said yes, even though I have not really baked using ratios and scales. I am definitely a numbers ... read more →

When the boys were little we used to have green eggs for breakfast everyday. They grew out of that phase a while ago and now I think this Green Eggs recipe is perfect for St. Patrick’s day.
Now when I make these, I serve them with chicken breakfast links and my Dark Rye Bread (as shown above). Green eggs are a colorful, fun, super healthy, hearty way to get in green veggies at the start of your day. You can also ... read more →

As a Jew, Irish Soda Bread would not be something that comes naturally to me. However, over the years, I’ve received numerous requests for a gluten free, dairy free, gum free, high protein Irish Soda Bread. Well, here you have it.
Given that all things Irish are not my native habitat, I had to do some research to actually figure out what Irish Soda Bread is. Here’s what Wikipedia had to say about it:
“Soda bread are a variety of quick bread ... read more →

Did you know that I am obsessed with all things muesli? I have a recipe for muesli bread in my book, and I make just about everything else I can with muesli. While traditionally muesli has oats in it, I make mine grain free, as I follow as diet that is very close to Primal/Paleo.
So what exactly is muesli? According to Wikipedia, it is a “popular breakfast cereal based on uncooked rolled oats, fruit and nuts. It was developed around ... read more →
