Grain Free Banana Bread

Posted in Breakfast, Snacks, Treats | 32 comments

I’ve made my fair share of banana bread recipes since going grain and dairy free, and, honestly, none of them have been anywhere close to as good as my grandmother’s old recipe using wheat flour. In fact most of them have been either soggy and dense or dry and bland.

Posted in Breakfast, Raw & Fermented | 29 comments

Boxed cereals (even organic, “whole-grain” ones) are heavily-processed, nutritionally bankrupt foods that have to be sprayed with chemical vitamins to be remotely healthy.
