Nine Lectin-Free, Grain-Free Healthy Wraps

Let’s start this one by saying that tacos must be the most loved food in the world. And I think that besides the taste of a good taco, the reason people love them is the experience of eating them. When eaten at home, it can be a fun sharing experience, and everyone can add their fillings and toppings of choice. And I don’t know about y’all, but I love eating food with my hands. Of course, there are many other popular foods that requite a wrap or a base, such as hot dogs, burgers, rolls or sandwiches. This list includes my favorite lectin-free, grain-free wraps and my favorite ways to use them. They are a blessing if your are following the Plant Paradox lifestyle.

After a few tests I can write this lectin-free scones recipe down and share it with the world. They are tasty, soft, fragrant, perfect for breakfast, snacks, or even gourmet sandwiches. They are also super easy to make, with pretty common ingredients, especially if you are familiar with a gluten/grain-free, sugar-free lifestyle.

Five-Spice Pork Belly with Cauliflower Rice and Broccoli Sprouts

Recently I asked for feedback on Instagram about what you ladies and gentelmen will love to see more on my website in the new year, and some of you asked for more Chinese inspired dishes. I love Asian inspired food, but we all know it is close to impossible to eat Plant Paradox compliant in an asian restaurant. So I made it a mission to create more lectin-free asian inspiried recipes.

Green Shakshuka with Brussels Sprouts and Smoked Sausage

There is something about shakshuka that screams comfort, taste, lazy but gourmet mornings. It’s simple but festive at the same time, it’s nutritious and easy to make, it’s sharable. We had this particular one for our Christmas day brunch, and it hit all the spots. And of course is plant paradox friendly and lectin-free.

My Lectin-Free Take on Saag Paneer

This must be one of my favorite lectin-free recipes I adapted in a while. I mentioned in a previous post that I have more of a green tooth these days, and whenever I find a delicious way to get a lot of greens in one meal, I’m super happy. It’s a fast, inexpensive, nutritionally dense and anti-inflammatory dish, and doesn’t require precision. And it was a hit even with my husband who usually has to be tricked to eat more greens. Sound familiar?

Lectin-Free Christmas Cookies with Orange and Raspberries: Two Ways

I am more motivated these days to create savory, every day healthy dishes than baked stuff. Partly because I have enough really great recipes for sweet treats, and partly because I have a green tooth these days more than a sweet tooth. But, holidays are here and I just have to have some cookies on my table. So I created these lectin-free butter cookies today, and the dough can be used in different ways. My favorite ones are the thumbprint raspberry cookies.

The Plant Paradox: 18 Steps to Reduce Chronic Inflammation and Improve Your Health

Do you want to adopt a healthy(-er) lifestyle, eat better, feel better but you are confused and overwhelmed by all the information out there, some of it even contradictory? Well, that was me 1.5 years ago, before I started the Plant Paradox program, in August-2017, so I totally get it. I was in my late 30s, in fact in 2019 I’ll be 40, and although I was relatively healthy all my life (or so I thought) the past few years I started to have all sorts of problems I was puzzled about: gaining weight and looking puffy despite eating ‘well’ and exercising, doing yoga, being active in general. So what was I doing wrong?

Soft Purple Sweet Potato Cookies with Tahini

I made these beauties yesterday with a friend of mine. I absolutely love purple sweet potatoes, going but the name Stokes Purple here in the US, and I made a lot of crazy stuff with them, but never attempted a cookie. Yesterday was National Cookie Day and although it wasn’t planned, it was quite fitting to the occasion. I not only love these purple sweet potato cookies because of how pretty they are, but they are a great way to eat resistant starch that is cooked and cooled, which is really smart if you want to triple the benefits for your gut health.
