Lectin-Free “Graham” Crackers or Digestive Biscuits

Hello from Denmark. I’m here missing a lot of my usual treats I had in the US, but that only motivates me to create more. I haven’t missed crackers in my life so far, there were plenty of options in the US and my Sweet Potato Crackers are better than any store bought crackers I have ever had. But I missed something else: biscuits. Now, if you are reading this in the US, you think of something different when you read or hear biscuits. But what I mean my biscuits is the what you might call crackers, however there is a big difference between biscuits and crackers. Crackers are really crunchy, while biscuits are more floury. This recipe is what you would call “graham crackers”, or what in Europe we would call “digestive biscuits”.

Red Cabbage and Leeks Casserole with Dill

Since I came to Denmark, I cooked variations of this dish so many times, I figured what was my favorite combination and wanted to share it with the world. The cabbage I find here is particularly beautiful and tasty. Someone in Australia told me this variety is called particularly loaf. Any cabbage would work though, although if you want it to also look pretty, choose a red one.

How to Prepare Nutritious and Tasty Low Lectin Meals in a Few Easy Steps

This post was inspired by all the meals I created during the Covid lockdown, while in Dallas. I noticed there was a pattern in the way I was preparing my meals and I thought that would be useful for some of you out there trying to stay healthy and not spend too much time (or money) cooking. It’s interesting, but for me, the lockdown didn’t inspire me to cook more, even though I had more time at home. I guess it was the stress and uncertainty, especially that we were in a limbo with our international relocation from the US to Denmark. Now I’m finalizing this post in Denmark, so in the end, even if with some delays, things worked out.

Rhubarb Breakfast Cake (Gluten-free, sugar-free)

Disclosure: this cake started as a Peach Breakfast Cake but since my first attempt with peaches I made some improvements to the batter but I wasn’t able to find organic peaches anymore. One day I saw rhubarb in stores (it’s popular here in Denmark) and I felt it could be a good fit. And oh wow, that was perfect. So Rhubarb Breakfast Cake it is.

Sweet Potato Brownie, Vegan, Low Histamine

As I’m writing this I’m stuck in the house in Dallas due to the corona virus situation. I’ve been baking a lot these days and usually part of what I make, I freeze. This gives me the opportunity to use a lot of the ingredients I have around the house before our big move to Denmark, and at the same time we have a back-up just in case. These lectin-free sweet potato brownies are amazing because they only require a few ingredients, and it leaves room for flexibility in case you don’t have one of the ingredients.

Food in times of Coronavirus… A recipe, vegan, affordable, nutritionally dense

To be honest, I didn’t want to use the word “Coronavirus” in my article, because I’m never the one to write my articles based on dumb SEO rules… I just want my posts to be short and sweet, to the point, informative and easy to navigate. But today, really, I don’t know what else to write. I can’t even give a name to this recipe. All I see and hear and think about is this (see, I won’t use the name again, I promise).

Lectin-Light Adzuki Beans Brownie with Olive Oil and Macadamia Nuts

There is a big preconception out there, that if you are following the Plant Paradox program you can’t eat beans. To quote Dr. Steven Gundry, “you can eat beans, just detoxify them first”. So, if you have passed Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the Plant Paradox and willing to give Phase 3 a try, beans and legumes are a new fascinating world to explore. It didn’t take me long to use beans to make a sweet treat and wow, I’m impressed! This lectin-light, gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan brownie is delicious.

Greens and Sweet Potato Hash Bowl

Lately I’ve been eating out more than usual, in a place in Dallas called Origin. They are Plant Paradox friendly, although I’m not sure they are aware what the Plant Paradox is. They have these bowls that you can personalize and the one that works for me is half plain sweet potato hash, half Brussels sprouts. I also add some fresh arugula, and sometimes grass-fed hanger steak or pasture-raised eggs. So I created this bowl at home, with my adds-on I wish I could find in a restaurant. The result was delicious.

A Day in the Life of Dr. Steven Gundry

Steven Gundry

Ever wondered how Dr. Steven Gundry, M.D., author of The Plant Paradox and The Longevity Paradox, and an inspiration for so many in their health journeys, spends a typical day? I have and my curiosity led me to spend forty minutes with Dr. G (as most of us affectionately call him), talking about a typical day in his life, from the moment he wakes up to the moment he goes to sleep.
