2013 Holiday Wrap Up: The Food (Dairy, Gluten, and Grain-Free)

Let’s face it, the holidays seem to be all about the food, healthy or not, so I figured it was only fair to share what I whipped up over the past few months.

If you caught my last post, you saw that we did a lot of traveling for the holidays, and in true crunchy hot mama fashion, I was a cooking fool.  I hope you will try these (not just for the holidays) and let me know what you think. You know I keep it paleo (gluten, dairy, grain, & soy-free), so there’s bound to be something for everyone…even those who aren’t paleo fans.

I’m not even going to waste any more time–on to food!

3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients–almond flour, coconut flour, arrowroot flour, salt, and baking soda.

4. In a separate mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the wet ingredients–coconut milk, eggs, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, and honey.

5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix with the electric mixer until just combined.

I couldn’t pass up this little cutie.  I had no idea this was from Pinterest, I just saw it pop up on my Chiropractor‘s page and wanted to surprise Emma with something fun.  She loved that her daddy cooked the parts and I assembled it for her…I’m thinking this will be an annual tradition with our family.

Overall, the holidays were a success and quite fun celebrating as a family of four!  I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us and I promise to chronicle our adventures along the way.

Happy Eating!
