Gluten-Free Crepes

Gluten-free crepes are a favorite here in my house, but I feel the “carb rush” after eating grains, so almond flour has become one of my favorite ingredients for making them.

My husband does not care for the flavor of rice flour in baked goods, so in the past I have often cooked 2 batches of crepes – gluten-y and gluten-free – which is more complicated, of course. I was happy to find that the flavor of almond flour satisfies is good for both of us.

The liquid in this recipe can be varied to suit not just gluten-free eating but also dairy-free or paleo diets.

As you can see from the pictures, for our brunch today we topped our crepes with butter, fruit and/or syrup. I used butter and strawberry fruit topping. Al enjoyed seedless raspberry topping with butter and syrup.

A great thing about making crepes is how they can be a “pantry recipe” – when it’s past time to go shopping but we’re hungry, I can still often make a quick meal of crepes that we will enjoy. If we’d had fresh fruit today, I would have used some – strawberries or blueberries would have been a nice touch. However, the bottled versions of fruit toppings and spreads work well for crepes, and they keep in the pantry indefinitely. I choose the ones that are fruit juice-sweetened only, and Al usually wants a more traditional (over-sweetened) type. I tease him about his sweet tooth, but he does eat less sugar than he used to.

Power Greens Omelet for an Easy Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast is an important meal for me, but I don’t like to spend much time preparing it. That’s why when I find an easy healthy breakfast, I really like it.

This gluten-free recipe is one of the recent healthy breakfast ideas I have found that is also dairy-free, nut-free and paleo.

”Power greens” might be what you’d call a combination of several of those leafy antioxidant-, fiber- and vitamin-rich “powerhouse veggies” like kale, spinach, chard, beet greens and the like.

A combination of them makes a wonderful salad, and they add a variety of textures and flavor to a stir-fry. They also “wilt” deliciously to be folded into an omelet…so in this recipe they become part of a “power greens omelet.”

Butternut Squash Soup in the Slow Cooker, Naturally Gluten-Free

Nourishing and warming Butternut Squash Soup in the Slow Cooker is naturally gluten-free.

Butternut squash is easy to cook several different ways, including the slow cooker, the stove top, the microwave or the oven. I’ve used each method in the past and found that they all have their advantages.

For this recipe I focused more on the set-it-and-forget aspect of a crock pot to cook the squash while I went about doing other things for a while.

All I did before putting it in the crockpot was to halve it and seed it.
