I love watching cooking shows and coming up with healthy ways to modify the recipes into gluten free friendly versions. I actually saw the Barefoot Contessa make raspberry butter on one of her early pilot season episodes. She was baking fresh scones for a posh Sunday brunch in the Hamptons and blew my mind with this simple and colorful way of dressing up her butter.
I love little details like that!
I’m always looking for healthy ways to start my day off right, so when some good friends of mine shared this recipe with me I jumped all over it! This ultimate pancake is lean, clean, protein packed and gluten-free. Needless to say it’s become a staple breakfast at my house ever since. I’ve made some modifications over time but this breakfast fuels my body and keeps me going without the pangs of hunger that I typically feel by 9 am.
I’m not just another health fad follower jumping on the Gluten Free bandwagon. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease at 19…fast forward to 2015 and it’s been 10 years of living, eating and cooking gluten-free! It wasn’t always easy but I’ve learned a lot along the way and I’ve also grown to love the challenge of trying out and even creating recipes that are as delicious as they are healthy.
I recently came across a new recipe that I just had to try, Gluten Free Banana Cakes.
