I’ve been experimenting lately with cutting out grains in my diet, or at least reducing the amount I typically eat. Articles such as Going Grain-Free and Against All Grain Health Transformation have provided helpful information about the benefits of choosing a grain-free diet.
I must say, the days that I haven’t had any grains, I have felt better – less bloated, clearer skin.
With these good results, I’ve been encouraged to keep experimenting with more grain-free recipes.
And I’ve found some really yummy ones! Here’s a little round-up of some of the recipes I’ve tried and loved, as well as a few I’m planning on trying.
Grain Free Sandwich Bread (pictured above from AgainstAllGrain.com) – This recipe has become a staple in our house. There are a few steps involved with this recipe, but once you’ve made it once or twice, you could do it with your eyes closed (ok, maybe not, but it becomes a lot simpler 😉 ). We love to toast this bread and make BLTs (with nitrate-free turkey bacon).
Coconut Flour Flatbread (from thrive-style.com) – These are similar to pancakes and make the perfect sized flatbreads to make sandwiches. I also like to eat them for breakfast with a little Grade B maple syrup. They are grain free, low carb, high fiber and a great way to stabilize blood sugar.
Grain Free Pumpkin Bars (from Detoxinista.com)– If you like pumpkin, you will love this recipe. With a cake-like texture, you would never know this recipe is free of any grains or flours. The maple pecan glaze makes it tastes decadent (but it’s still healthy!). All you need is one bowl to mix this recipe together. Super simple and super delicious!
I’m also looking forward to trying this 3-Minute Coconut Almond Porridge, and these 5 ingredient Mini Muffins. If you want more ideas on Grain-free recipes, make sure to follow my Grain-Free Board on Pinterest!
