I wanted to create a snack that was both healthy and indulgent. The result is a not-overly-sweet edible cookie dough with protein and fiber benefits added from the red lentil base and reduced fat content from avoiding nut flours. The spices, extract flavor, and mix-ins can all be swapped out to create other flavors, but … Continue reading N’Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough (Lentil)
Lemon Cardamom Froyo
This is such a bright -flavored frozen yogurt. I feel like it would complement fruit pies well - especially blueberry, apple, or even sweet potato. Please let me know how it is, if you make it, by leaving a comment below. Enjoy!
Cherry Yogurt Jello
I am exploring new breakfast ideas and want to make sure I am getting more protein in my diet. Please note that you may use whatever juice you want to use for this recipe. I used the Lakewood Organic brand of cherry juice. My preferred gelatin powder is from Great Lakes. Enjoy!

This pizza crust recipe is hands-down the best I've yet to come across. I can honestly say that I would eat this over regular … Continue reading Pizza Crust (SCD & Paleo)
Crab Cakes (Low-Fat)
I have not introduced crab yet for LEAP. I was finally able to find lump crab meat with no other ingredients besides pasteurized crab (Whole Foods). I've combed through some recipes out there to come up with my own SCD legal recipe that also reduces fat (no mayo here). I am currently trying to increase … Continue reading Crab Cakes (Low-Fat)
