Breakfast Souffle



So for dinner and lunch I can usually think of something new and interesting to make, but when it comes to breakfast, well that is a different story…..until I came upon this awesome recipe.  A breakfast souffle!!

I will say anytime a french word is used in a recipe I usually envision Julia Child spending hours in the kitchen and I run for the hills.  But I promise this one is EASY and yummy.  You can use any type of fruit (fresh or frozen) and you can use a natural sweetener of your choice (honey, maple syrup, coconut nectar).  It does not take too long and everyone will think you are sooo fancy.  Enjoy and here’s to hoping your souffle is lighter than air!



Against All Grain

On Tuesday morning I saw a new cookbook released called, “Against All Grain: Delectable Paleo Recipes to Eat Well & Feel Great” . The reviews looked amazing and I was excited to see the author, Danielle Walker, followed a Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) and had nut-free recipe options as well. I went online to Amazon and got it delivered locally that day!!

That night I marked all the amazing recipes I wanted to make and took time to read Danielle’s amazing journey to a healing diet.   (You can also read her story online here).   It was so fabulous to see someone heal themselves naturally with food!

The first recipe I had to make was Sesame Orange Chicken. I haven’t eaten Chinese food in FOREVER so I was so excited to try this— and let me tell you it did not disappoint! My favorite thing about the recipe was you make in a slow cooker which makes it super easy.  It also incorporated coconut aminos which I have not cooked with much and was excited to try. I had originally doubled the recipe so the whole family could partake, let’s just say that between my hubby and I there was nothing left! Sorry kiddos!


The next recipe I made was the homemade mayo. We use a lot of homemade mayo in our house (on basically everything – you could say we have a mayo problem J).  Typically we make mayo with olive oil, so I was excited to try this new version with macadamia oil.


The mayo was nutty and sweet and delish! It would be fabulous on a sandwich or dipped with some yummy veggies!

These were just two recipes I made yesterday but I have a long list that I’m looking forward to trying out. I highly recommend Danielle Walker’s new cookbook, especially for those who follow SCD.  You can check it out here!
