There was recently a gray “chilly” (probably like 65 degrees) Sunday here in LA and I found my mind wandering to some plump autumnal muffins. Something about the warm tones of winter squash and classic spices like nutmeg and cinnamon are deeply comforting for me. I didn’t mind brushing summer aside to enjoy them.
Like hash browns? Oh, you love them?! But you don’t love that they’re a little skimpy on the nutrition side, highly starchy and make you feel gross after you eat them? I hear ya.
Let me introduce you to the rutabaga, if you two haven’t already met. This little root vegetable is technically part of the cruciferous family and contains cancer-fighting phytochemicals, is high in antioxidants, fiber and Vitamin C. While maintaining a nice starchy texture, these little beauties have half the carbohydrate content of potatoes! [Read more…]
Omelettes! They’re a go-to healthy breakfast due to their simplicity, while still maintaining just a tinge more glamor than your average fried egg.
Few things in life are as satisfying as a warm slice of soft, tender bread. Especially if that bread is made up of delicate flavors like hazelnut flour and the subtly chocolate tones of this buckwheat flour. Made with gluten-free flours and lending sweetness from the buckwheat itself, this bread’s low glycemic index makes it friendly for those with celiac disease, candida over-comers and plain old foodies alike!
Breakfast balancing candida can be very… eggy. Many mornings I have a simple egg fried in coconut oil or boiled with steamed greens. Don’t get me wrong, eggs are awesome. Especially a good free-range egg with a creamy, deep golden yolk. Hm… Now I want an egg. Anyway, some mornings you just don’t want eggs. Sometimes you want something, sweet and light.
