It is the blueberry season and we must take advantage of it. I had some organic blueberries in the fridge I wasn’t sure how I wanted to use and asked for inspiration from the awesome Instagram community today and it seemed like a lot of people wanted something with lemon and blueberries. So I decided on making grain free, (added) sugar free, lectin free muffins with lemon and blueberries.
When I started The Plant Paradox program almost a year ago I was on a mission to make fat bombs, or keto cups, because I wanted to keep my dessert tooth satisfied. They are a perfect, zero guilt sweet treat and the easiest thing to make. Doesn’t require baking either and they last a long time in the freezer. And they actually give you energy and nutrients instead of spiking your blood sugar and send you in a spiral of cravings.
My sister just moved to New York City and since she is not yet familiar with all the places she could get her Plant Paradox pantry stocked, she asked for my help. And since I’m doing it for her, I’ll post it here for anyone who is at the beginning in their Plant Paradox journey or have relocated to the US and have the same problem.
These beauties are egg free, dairy free, lectin free and basically made with just three main wholesome ingredients: avocado, hazelnuts, cacao. I’ve made many brownies in the past, but never without eggs, or sweet potato so I decided to give it a try. It worked like a charm and it’s absolutely delicious.
This lectin-free Asian noodle meal is loaded with veggies, super low carb (thanks to Miracle Noodles), it’s infused with fresh ginger, fresh turmeric and garlic and tastes absolutely amazing. Plant Paradox nutrition at its best.
Berries are the darlings of the plant paradox program. They are to be consumed in moderation and only in season, like any other fruits, but they are more desirable than most other fruits due to their low sugar content and the incredible benefits. So unless you are following the Keto Intensive Program and / or are insulin resistant, now is the time to enjoy the summer berries. And this lectin free, added sugar free, grain free and extremely easy to make crumble, is a refreshing addition to your diet this summer.
“Finally a meal with sauce!” These were the exact words of my husband when he saw the dish. While he wants everything to be soaked in juices, I don’t mind just eating dry food and I’m happy with just adding extra virgin olive oil. But this is an easy and juicy lectin free chicken meal with Moroccan flavors and just few wholesome ingredients.
I’ve been eating hummus for breakfast, lunch and dinner for almost eight years (not really, but you get the idea), so cutting it when I found out nightshades and legumes might be the causes of my inflammation and mysterious weight gain, was probably a shock to my system. But honestly, I don’t really miss hummus, I miss more the experience of dipping (pita bread) in a creamy sauce. I’ve tried the only cauliflower hummus before but I was not really convinced, but this time I’m onto something good.
I’ve been experimenting with this herbs dressing for quite some time, and now I feel completely happy with how it turns out and how it compliments so many different dishes. I love herbs but you know, unless you are my father, you can’t really eat herbs like you eat salad leaves. I don’t know, I just don’t feel like biting from a fresh bunch of parsley or cilantro, like my dad used to do when we were kids (and still does, with a grin on his face).
