Every Mexican-inspired meal needs a side of Instant Pot Ranchero Beans! Soaking for 36 hours eliminates the phytic acid that causes gas and bloating, so you can savor the smoky flavor of these nourishing beans without paying for it later!
Nothing gets my family excited like a cold day and some creamy, cheesy comfort food! This Dairy-Free Bacon & Green Chili Mac-n-Cheeze has all the characteristics of traditional macaroni and cheese, but no actual cheese! It’s budget-friendly, full of hidden veggies, and allergy-friendly!
The zingy flavor of cool potato salad is replicated in this dairy-free, potato-free Low-Carb No-Tato Salad, but with celeriac (celery root) instead of potatoes for those who stick to a low-carb diet or who need to avoid nightshades. It’s also a Trim Healthy Mama S!
It’s a super easy way to get in some extra veggies, it’s full of anti-inflammatory turmeric, and it’s perfect for THM, Paleo, Whole 30, grain-free, and low-carb lifestyles. We regularly eat this cauliflower rice with our favorite Instant Pot meals!
I use my Instant Pot to cook perfectly fluffy quinoa in just 4 (yes, you read that right) minutes is truly a wonder! AND I give it a long soak first to reduce phytic acid and saponins for better digestion! Here’s how!
Do you have some plain yogurt in your fridge and a few herbs and spices in your pantry? If so, you have everything you need to make a quick probiotic ranch dressing! You’ll throw the packets of ranch dressing mix in the trash after you taste this dressing.
Once you’ve eaten all your crispy, delicious Bubbie’s pickles, you’ll be left with about 2 cups of liquid that’s still full of fermenting potential! I have cultured veggies with a starter culture, with whey, and with salt only — and I LOVE using Bubbie’s Pickles liquid as my starter culture!
Because of hypoglycemia and the fact that diabetes runs in my family, potatoes are a part of my past. I don’t miss roasted potatoes, however, because…radishes. 😉 These easy, low-carb roasted radishes with chives are a cinch — and all the bitterness of raw radishes completely disappears during the roasting!
Eggplant is colorful! And color in veggies and fruits is a sure sign of nutrition, antioxidants, and enzymes! Eggplants are super high in fiber, but low in starch — so they’re excellent for gut health (ahem, regularity). This high fiber helps you feel full without eating a large amount of food, so eat more eggplant if you’re watching your waistline. Parmesan Roasted Eggplant is one of my family’s favorite ways to enjoy this lovely vegetable!
Me + spicy, Cajun food = true love. Here’s a Paleo, Whole30 version of a classic Cajun favorite — Blackened Salmon Over Cajun Zoodles in just 1 skillet! Get those brain-healthy Omega 3s and blood sugar-friendly fiber from the zucchini noodles!
