Gluten-Free

Collard Greens with Garlic and Lemon

Steamed or braised collard greens with garlic and a sprinkle of fresh lemon are naturally gluten-free. A relative of the cabbage and broccoli family, they are low carb and rich in fiber and many valuable nutrients, such as vitamins A, C and K, plus several of the B vitamins. They also have a variety of minerals, such as potassium, phosphorus and calcium, to name a few.

These collards can be served as a side for pork loin chops or chicken pieces for a paleo dinner, with a baked sweet potato as another side. I like to accompany them sometimes with Cajun rice or blackeyed peas to complement their texture and flavor for a vegetarian dinner. In the photo above they are shown with Shredded Barbecue Chicken.

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of July 20, 2014

This week the Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan begins with a dinner fit for a celebration, at least in our house… we all like it that much.

Tender, juicy salmon fillets with spinach on the side is one of my family’s favorite dinners. And, to make it even better, it includes a Flourless Chocolate Cake for dessert, which is always good for a party. The cake takes advanced preparation and then it needs time to cool. But, the rest of the dinner takes only 30 minutes to cook.

Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Muffins with Honey

Anything containing oatmeal and raisins is usually among the all-time favorites in my house, and these muffins are no exception. So, I made several batches of them and experimented a little with the sweetener. These Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Muffins with honey are what we like the best. In fact, a not-to-be-disclosed family member declared that these were absolutely delicious!

I like that the honey is a little better for us than the more traditional granulated cane sugar or brown sugar that is in many of my other muffin recipes.

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of July 6, 2014

The last few weeks have been so hectic that I’ve missed preparing my menu plans, and that’s really made things even more hectic. This week is off to a better start already since I’ve put together a gluten-free diet menu plan to help me out.

I hope those of you in the U.S. are enjoying your Independence Day weekend! Mine has been sunny and not too hot, with lots of flags and fireworks. Our neighbors like a lot of the noisy kind of fireworks. They are fun to watch, but I can’t say that our three dogs appreciate the noise.

Here are my ideas for a week’s worth of family-pleasing gluten-free dinners. I hope you have a wonderful week!

How To Test Food For Gluten Using The GlutenTox Home Testing Kit

The GlutenTox Home Testing Kit is one of the two home food gluten-testing kits which Al and I consider to be credible.

We conducted 2 tests which we are reporting on in the video below. We tested a regular, saltine cracker from a generic brand available in our local convenience store. This test is our control and demonstrates that the product does in fact detect gluten.

For the demonstration, Al videoed the process while I tested a sample I took from a slice of pizza made from Bob’s Red Mill Pizza Mix for gluten.

A summary of our test findings is provided after the video so you can see what we thought of the GlutenTox Home Testing Kit.
