A beautiful homemade latte, made with cashew milk. A super special thing for me, since it’s been about six years that I could have coffee or nuts on a regular basis. I made the cashew milk with a device called the Almond Cow.

You may ask yourself what is so special about tomatoes.  And, in fact, it’s not a particularly beautiful photograph, either.  But after a five-year hiatus, I am able to eat both raw and cooked tomatoes again.  And every time I eat them, I am so appreciative of how flavorful and delicious they are!

Awhile back, I pre-ordered a new kitchen device called the Almond Cow, which is supposed to make milk from nuts.  I liked the idea because I’m allergic to so many of the additives in milk.  It arrived today, and I have to confess that it more amazing than I could have imagined.  I tried cashews today, and I took their advice on the remaining pulp – it make a great snack!  I have already purchased macadamia nuts, pecans, and almonds to try.  I’m thrilled, because being able to make my own nut milk is really a breakthrough in an otherwise pretty restricted diet.

 

I have been traveling a lot for work, and it’s been a challenge to stick to the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP). This post is a little celebration of surviving nine days of travel, and eating well the whole time.

This is a salad with mixed greens, radicchio, endives, little sprouts, sautéed meat, and a little garnish of Kite Cheese (made from fermented almonds).

While I was in Southern California I found these beautiful purple Brussels sprouts, a first for me:

Below is a breakfast casserole, mostly sulphur vegetables (in keeping with the Wahls Protocol), because they are harder to find when I travel. It’s riced cauliflower, steamed Brussels sprouts, sautéed onions and mushrooms, and some ground chicken.

Trying very hard to add variety to my diet by doing a four-day rotation. It’s amazing how extraordinarily hard that is. We fall into habits so easily. So here is a yummy kale salad with shrimp and fresh grapefruit. A little coconut aminos, lemon, and olive oil for dressing. 

My first batch of homemade gummies – made with apple juice and cinnamon. Healthy treat!
