Healthy Foods and Recipes
We only share what we have tried!
Gluten & Sugar Free zone
We hope you enjoy these Healthy Eating / Food Options we share and Recipes that have been researched & tested for a gluten and sugar cane free diet. Albeit we do our best to be completely sugar free, there are some gluten free treats that include organic sugar. Have not experienced glycemic issues with the brands we choose, as long as you eat in moderation.
All our recipes shown substitute cane sugar with Truvia baking sugar mix or use your favorite sugar substitute such as Stevia. Some items come pre-mixed, with these we make sure they are organic and have lowest sugar content.
Remember you are what you eat. What we list and show on here is what we eat in moderations, everything should be in moderation no matter how good it is!
Stay tuned to this page as we are working on updating it with plenty more choice recipes!
Gluten - Free Buttermilk Blueberry Pancakes
These are amazingly fluffy and tasty pancakes! Using Lactose Free milk is optional (for those who are lactose intolerant). This is easy to make even in a rush.
1 cup of GF Mix, 1 Egg, 3/4 Cup Milk. Add 1/2 Cup fresh blue berries once whisked together and cook!
Enjoy these with Sugar Free Organic Agave Maple Syrup! or whatever your preference is.
Molten Chocolate Cup Cakes or Cake - DIVINE!
When we found this and had to try it! And let me say it is a DIVINE "Treat" for Gluten Free Menus. Following the directions to bake it is easy, after this we Melt 1/2 (3 cubes) bark of Dark Chocolate (cocoa) only (less sugar content), Add one egg white and 2 TBSP of butter, melt all ingredients together stir well, then pour on top of the cakes. Let sit and cool for at least 30 minutes. ENJOY!
Immune Booster -Bone Broth
Recently we found this Organic Bone Broth at Costco which tastes even better than making it at home. It has very good ingredients in this to boost your immune system. Have a small cup each day when you're feeling under the weather or just need to give your body immune support!
Promote Growth for Bone, Joints, Skin, Hair etc.
We have researched many products available when it comes to Collagen powders. Through actual use (our own use tests) we have found excellent results with this brand of Collagen Powder and highly recommend it. Other powders attempted do not dissolve well in Hot tea or coffee, this one dissolves very well in all your beverages or shakes.
This really helps with Joint and Bone support while promoting hair, skin and nail growth, all elements that Collagen are so important for our body. As we age, our body does not produce enough collagen and we may not have enough intake of foods to support it in our systems, therefore it is highly recommended to try this if you suffer from any of the above ailments.
Give it a try! This product can be found at Local Nutrition Marts or Health Food stores, Amazon(although its higher in cost), Costco will sometimes carry it in bulk.
Support your GI (Gastrointestinal) Health
Do you have problems with Acid Reflux or inflammation in your gut? Do you take a lot of Antacids to control your symptoms? If you research more, you'll find that most antacids used for a prolonged period of time are not good for your body, especially women! Quite a few medications may cause Bone Density reduction. As what we found out by some patients.
There is however an alternative to using the Antacid medications you can "try" that we have found has worked very well in support of GERD and gut inflammation.
Try Aloe Vera Juice. It really works!! Have about a 2 oz shot glass of Aloe Juice prior to eating breakfast or dinner, on an empty stomach. It is available in most stores today. The brand identified here we have found is Organic and available in most grocery and some health food stores and what we recommend. Aloe is by its naturally known elements, a healing agent. Imagine what this does for your GI?
In our research we recommend to buy Aloe Vera Juice or Gel in GLASS containers not plastic. The flavor is not much to brag about, yet way better coming from a Glass container rather than plastic.
