Strawberry Crepes

Strawberry Crepes

Delicious, Healthy and Fun! These crepes are delicious, simple and fun to make with kids. I use sprouted spelt flour in this recipe. Spelt flour contains some gluten (a plant protein), though less than wheat flour. The sprouting process allows for a partial breakdown of the gluten (and other anti nutrients found on the external coating of the bran) which accomplishes a "pre-digestion" effect. This allows us to easily absorb and assimilate all of the healthy nutrients in the spelt, without … [Read more...]

Today I'm making a dairy-free piecrust, with Earth Balance buttery sticks. It's also … [Read more...]

Wheat-free, Dairy Free Apple-Blueberry Protein Muffins

Ultimate Apple-Blueberry Protein Muffins

This was one of my first ever cooking videos. I left it the way it is so you can see the evolution of the things I've learned over the years about how to take better and better care of my body.
