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.

The first thing I noticed about Ernie’s Salsas, besides being gluten-free, was the high quality of the ingredients used, the short list of ingredients and the variety of flavors.
Ernie sent me five flavors to taste: Gourmet Red, Hawaiian Pineapple Heat, Chesapeake Bay Shrimp, Perfect Peach, and Black Bean and Corn….
We tasted some of each flavor plain, and then also with cucumber slices, pepper strips, celery and carrot sticks, and also with some chips.

When I have fresh, juicy strawberries, I like a simple, gluten-free vanilla pudding to accompany them.
The pudding is a traditional dish made with milk, cornstarch and egg that is so easy to stir together on the stovetop.
