Another week has gone by. Well, another 9 days has gone by. A busy personal week, so this round-up got pushed back a few days. A lot has happened in the gluten-free world this last 9 days, though, so let’s get started. Gluten-free recipes first.
- Alta from Tasty Eats at Home has a lovely recipe for Shrimp Lettuce Wraps. I am a major seafood fan, and these look so good. It’s couple weeks old, but I just saw the recipe the other day, so here it is.
- Ali from The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen had a recipe for Rice Breakfast Porridge. Her family just had a new addition, Camille. You can click on over for a great recipe for mom while nursing, as well as see the beautiful new baby girl. Also, more great info on what mom should be eating if she is nursing. I really wish I had this information three years ago.
- Chilaquiles are on the menu over at Diane’s (from The Whole Gang). If you like Mexican food, this sounds like such a great whip-it-up-anytime recipe. Pretty gosh darned easy. And tasty to boot. Yum!
- Pizza! How about Pizza Muffins?! I love this recipe from Shirley at gfe – gluten-free easily. Pizza Muffins that you can change around to your favorite toppings. They are made with mostly almond flour, so they can be a healthy lunch, dinner or snack. Another yum!
- Elana from Elana’s Pantry has a recipe for Paleo Dirty Rice. You know, the cajun kind. But this is made with cauliflower, not rice. I am really excited about trying this. We have a head of cauliflower in the fridge that is just sitting there. It’s begging to be made into something tasty. I think this is it.
- And for dessert, we have gelato. Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Chocolate Gelato Recipe from Carol of Simply…Gluten-Free to be precise. This sounds so yummy! We fell in love with gelato when we were in Italy a few years ago. I think everyone does. I could easily live on gelato and art in Italy. Oh, and the shoes.
- Speaking of gluten-free recipes, Sea from The Book of Yum has the sign-up up for Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger for the month of September. If you are interested in trying out a recipe from one of your favorite gluten-free bloggers, you should go sign up. This event is how I first got introduced to some wonderful people who I now call friends. And by friends I mean we actually get together off-line and hang out. Oh, and I was adopted by my friend Shirley from gfe – gluten-free easily. (*doing happy dance*)
- As for medical news, Alisa from Go Dairy Free had an interesting article up about children with ear, nose and throat issues improving on a dairy-free diet. It seems that the medical establishment might be starting to agree that inflammation can be caused by diet. And inflammation can be the cause of many health problems. Hmmmmm. Ya think? If you have a little one with ear, nose or throat issues, I suggest reading this.
- And speaking of personal health, there were two great posts up about personal issues relating to health. Iris from The Daily Dietribe has a beautiful story about listening to her symptoms. Something I think we all need to do, whether we are gluten-free or not. I don’t think we get encouraged enough to be in charge of our own health and our own bodies. Good stuff.
- AndreAnna of Life as a Plate has another beautiful story of her personal struggle. I really encourage you to read it, too. I think we can all relate on some level. I think we just don’t get told enough that we are good enough, just how we are. We get told from all sides that we need to be different and this crazy idealized of perfect, so we have such a hard time just loving ourselves the way we are. Please read AndreAnna’s lovely words. I think we might all see a bit of ourselves.
- Another personal story comes via Lexie’s Kitchen. She has up a lovely story about how Stacy and her family switched to the paleo diet and found great health. And, lost a few unwanted pounds on the way. Well, quite a few. Great inspiration!
- Linda from The Gluten-Free Homemaker has a very thought provoking post up about the FDA’s Proposed Gluten-Free Labeling Law and her thoughts. I really like what she has to say. I hope she is heard.
- Melissa from Gluten-Free for Good has an article up about famers doing a great job (i.e. responsible job) with growing and processing gluten-free oats. She also has a link where you can become part of a survey and get a bag of gluten-free oats to try for free. They even pay for the shipping. I already signed up. And, I have the perfect recipe to use them in.
- A second post from Shirley at gfe-gluten-free easily. (And, no. It’s not just because she adopted me this month.) I really liked this one she had up about her Top 10 Reasons (plus 1) for Living GFE. She has some really good reasoning, and I have come to agree with her over the years of being gluten-free. It is just easier and healthier to be GFE.
- And, to end it on an up note, the ever-entertaining Lillian of Lillian’s Test Kitchen. She tells us how to start a conspiracy theory. I like it. And, I like her theory. I think I will try to help spread it.
I hope you
have had a great weekend.
Until later, here’s to…Living better, easily!™
