Egg Roll Bowl
2 tbsp sesame or coconut oil
3 cloves of minced garlic
½ cup diced onion
2-3 tbsp of diced fresh ginger
1 pound ground chicken
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp of sriracha or other hot sauce
14-oz bag of your favorite coleslaw mix (I like rainbow slaw)
3 tbsp of gluten-free soy sauce or coconut aminos
1 tbsp of vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar but rice vinegar is more authentic)
Optional garnish: toasted sesame seeds.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Toss in the garlic, onion and saute until the onion is soft. Add in the diced ginger and saute for 1-2 minutes.
Stir in the ground chicken, a pinch of salt and pepper and the hot sauce. Keep cooking until the chicken is done. Next, stir in the coleslaw, coconut aminos and vinegar and continue until the coleslaw is tender.
Sprinkle with optional sesame seeds and serve.
Gluten Free Cheese Crackers
1 C All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
1 ¾ C Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
4 T Cold Grass-fed butter, cut into pieces
2-3 T Cold Water
Coarse sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a food processor, combine flour, cheese, and butter
Combine well into a crumbly mixture
Add water until dough forms
Divide dough into two balls and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes
Form and flatten one ball into a brick
Roll until about ¼” thick, trying to keep in rectangular shape*
Transfer flattened dough to large cookie sheet
Using a knife or pizza cutter, lightly score dough into squares
Bake for 25 minutes or until crackers slightly bubble and turn golden on the edges
Once out of oven, re-trace your cuts, sprinkle with sea salt and allow to cool completely before breaking into squares
Repeat with other dough ball
Store in a mason jar in the refrigerator; these are good for about a week
*I like to use a Silpat to roll out...
2 Cups steamed cauliflower rice (after steaming)
2 T shredded Parmesan (this could totally be optional – thought it would help bind it better)
Salt & Pepper
Other seasonings to taste (I used fresh cilantro and some lime juice)
Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Heat oven to 375-400.
1) Take steamed cauli, drain as much excess liquid as you can with a cheesecloth or white dishcloth. WARNING: this is very hot.
2) In a medium bowl, combine eggs, parmesan (or any other cheese), salt and pepper and/or any other seasoning you’d like to try.
3) Add cauli to egg mixture and combine well.
4) Spoon cauli/egg mixture onto pan like you would a pancake on a griddle. There should be enough for 4-6 depending on the size you want.
5) Bake for 20-30 minutes.
6) When ready to use, fry on a dry pan to brown them on each side. A couple minutes is about all it takes.
1 small to med head of Cauliflower (about 2-3 C once processed)
¼ tsp Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt
½ tsp dried basil
½ tsp dried oregano
½ tsp garlic powder
Pinch of crushed red pepper
¼ C Shredded Parmesan
¼ C Mozzarella
Optional: 1 T almond flour
Toppings of choice
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Prepare large sheet of parchment paper on baking stone or sheet.
Wash and dry head of cauliflower. Cut off florets. You don’t need the stems. Pulse in your food processor for about 30 seconds until cauliflower is finely chopped. Steam cauliflower, let it cool, and wring it to release as much moisture as possible.
Place cauliflower in a bowl and add cheeses and spices. Stir to combine and then add the egg. Mix thoroughly. Hands actually work the best.
Once combined, form the cauliflower into a crust on an oiled parchment paper. Press firmly and slide parchment paper on baking stone or pizza sheet.
I love this soup because it is so wholesome and good for you! It includes a lot of veggies and spices to help with the detoxification process your body goes through every second of the day. Plus, it’s SO easy especially if you have a food processor to quickly chop and slice your veggies. Try it out and enjoy!

I did it! I found another recipe that my whole family really likes. My daughter asked if I’d make some Kung Pao Chicken and since its one of my favorite dishes I was more than happy to oblige. I have made several Asian dishes but never this one. I searched for a great recipe on Pinterest and but apparently there are 1000 different Kung Pao Chicken recipes. I couldn’t find one that I really like so I came up with my own concoction. Shockingly, it worked! I think it would be good to try with additional veggies for more texture (I’m a huge texture fan) such as celery, pea pods, or even broccoli. You could also try cashews. I did keep out red chili peppers which is common in this dish because I needed to keep the heat out of this recipe for one my girls. This still has a little kick but it wasn’t too much, at least for my family. The best thing about this is that if you don’t have time to marinate the chicken for 30 minutes, it’ll still taste great....
