I love peaches. I was born in Fredericksburg, Texas…
… Smack-dab in the middle of the Texas Hill Country’s many peach orchards!
And, I think peaches are so good that I wondered what they might taste like in a salsa.
So, I decided to whip up a batch to find out.
I made the most delicious, gluten-free roast braised in my slow cooker the other day. It was lean and flavorful and it sliced easily so it was easy to serve. The juices were fragrant with the Mediterranean seasoning and the savory vegetables. And, to top it all off, the sandwiches that I will make from the leftovers will be wonderful… We’ve had this before… Many times!
When I did thicken the juices to make a gluten-free gravy the way my husband likes it, we really enjoyed it. I used sweet rice flour for thickening this time. But, arrowroot powder or potato starch flour would work too if you’re cooking paleo.
A little while before serving time, I stirred the thickener into some of the juices and then stirred that back into the crockpot. It made such an easy gravy! There was plenty of flavor in the juices, so without any thickening it would still be excellent if you are on a low-carb diet.
I discovered a new brand of rotini with good flavor and lots of nutrition.
I was interested in this new product from Tolerant when I saw that it is made solely of lentils – Non-GMO Organic Red Lentils… Nothing else.
That makes it gluten-free and also free of the top eight allergens. This low-glycemic rotini is certified gluten-free, non-GMO, organic, vegan and kosher.
Since it is made from red lentils, it has a delicate pink tint that is lovely and appetizing whether in a salad with greens and dressing or in a skillet with peppers, onion and sauce.
The simplest ideas are sometimes the most useful. This is a simple recipe and it is that simplicity that makes it so good. I did these potatoes in my slow cooker so I made them “on autopilot” while I did other things.
I made the potatoes shown in the picture in the slow cooker as cubed potatoes with olive oil & parsley for seasoning.
Quartered or cubed potatoes with your favorite seasonings would work just as well. I served these recently for dinner with what I call a mini-meat loaf.
Preparing healthy snacks is usually time-consuming The good news is that not every snack has to be complicated or time-consuming to be healthy. Gluten-free trail mix can be as healthy as you want it to be. Quick to make. Quick to pack. Easy to carry. Nutrition on the go. Those are good reasons to make some with your own favorite ingredients. When I happen to look at what’s available in vending machines or checkout lanes in many places, I’m appalled by how much of it is high in refined sugars and high in salt. They can also be high in volume or quantity. Look at how many “servings” of peanuts are usually in a simple bag of peanuts – two […]
