Boxed macaroni and cheese is a childhood staple in many homes. While the taste might bring back fond memories, there’s little to love about powdered cheese and processed noodles. We’ve created a recipe with the same cheesy flavor, using gluten-free, dairy-free, butternut squash mac and cheese.Continue reading “Butternut squash mac and cheese”
There’s nothing quite like a sweet, buttery stack of pancakes on a holiday (or just a weekend morning). We’ve given traditional pancakes a makeover by using cleanse-friendly ingredients and adding pumpkin for a tasty fall twist. Since this batter is made in the blender, you can whip these pumpkin pancakes up quickly, with all of the bragging rights of homemade.Continue reading “Pumpkin pancakes your family will love”
While we love fruit or chocolate baked goods, there’s something about a dessert loaded with vegetables that makes us feel extra good. We’ve amped up the healthy ingredients in our version of a classic sweet potato pie. Not only is this dessert cleanse-friendly, but we’ve packaged it up in mini-pie form so you’ll get the perfect portion every time!Continue reading “A sweet potato pie just right for the holidays”
We’ve chosen raspberries (since we remove strawberries while cleansing), and added basil which is an unexpected twist to the topping. Our berry shortcake is free from processed sugar and traditional dairy, but still has all of the buttery, rich flavors we love about shortcake.Continue reading “End of summer berry shortcake”
These heavenly cinnamon spiced pear gluten-free pancakes will fill the air with deliciousness. To replace eggs in any recipe, you can simply make a flaxseed egg substitution. That’s what we used in this recipe and the pancakes came out fluffy, moist, and allergen-free. While they aren’t totally cleanse-approved, we think these pancakes are a delicious healthy alternative to your fave brunch spot!
Leaky gut syndrome has been gaining more attention in recent years, though mainstream medical providers are sometimes still unaware of its implications. As we become more and more affected by poor dietary choices, bacterial imbalances in the GI tract, stress, and overall toxic overload, the prevalence of leaky gut syndrome is on the rise. A growing body of research suggests that leaky gut syndrome can be a precursor to some serious health conditions. Glutamine (or L-Glutamine, as it is also known), can be a key in healing this disorder.
These reinvented gluten-free lemon bars are bursting with bright citrus flavors and are perfectly balanced by a light, buttery crust. We’ve taken out the processed sugars and refined flour for our version of the classic lemon bar. Instead, you’ll find a simple crust made from almond and coconut flours and a flavorful lemon filling without artificial or refined sweeteners. You can serve these at any function and no one will guess you’ve removed the inflammation-causing ingredients from the traditional version.
Every once in awhile, I like to give the community recipes for treats that might not fall into the Gut Program or Cleanse Program guidelines. Something to enjoy post-cleanse when you’re still trying to incorporate many of the principles of Clean but might be a bit more lenient on ingredients. This coconut blueberry cake, which I discovered on one of my favourite food and photography blogs, Roost, contains eggs, (lots of them!) but even for those who may have a sensitivity to eggs, like myself, I find that when they’re in something baked, they’re fine. And of course, as we’ve mentioned before, the higher quality (pastured, local) eggs you use, the better they are for you. The large number of eggs is why the fiber rich coconut flour works so well in this recipe.
