Welcome to our family favorite recipes! With food sensitivities or an autoimmune disease, it is easy to get stuck in a rut with food, especially when you identify a (small) list of ones that regularly work for you. My hope is these recipes will inspire you to try something new: experiment with the ingredients you have that work, then make one modification at a time (within the scope of your prescribed eating lifestyle) and see how your body and taste buds handle it!

Select a recipe from below or the menu bar to view ingredients and instructions. Most of the recipes have easy substitutions for food sensitivities, so enjoy the artistic license to make something delicious that works for you!

These build-your-own muffins are delightful! The best part is you can mix and match your mix-ins. I find blueberries, diced strawberries, raisins, chopped nuts, and chocolate chips work best.

Have you ever tried to copycat your favorite restaurant soup only to discover it’s much harder than you thought to match the rich flavor? I’ve found it’s not just the onion and garlic but also the bone broth and some ginger that really bring a homemade chicken soup up to par. This recipe is a great one to double or triple, depending on the size of your slow cooker (and the strength of your chopping arm!). Served with gluten free biscuits, it’s a crowd pleaser.

Banana Muffins pinit D dairyfree E eggfree G glutenfree G grainfree L LEAP M MRT M muffin Paleo P peanutfree S soyfree

As always, I like to find creative ways to use up our leftover brown bananas. We do smoothies often, so my freezer is well-stocked. We’ve tried several iterations of banana bread, and this one has the added protein component of chickpea flour. For those who tolerate legumes, this is also a dairy-free and egg-free recipe, making it a vegan lifesaver. You can never have too many bananas!

Veggie-Packed Chili in a bowl pinit C chili D dairyfree E eggfree G glutenfree G grainfree P peanutfree S soyfree

This chili recipe is a hit with family and friends! Full of delicious, simple ingredients, it packs in the flavor and the nutrition. It is easily customizable and can be Paleo without the corn and beans.  The way to get the best bang for your buck (and nutrition) with quality meats is to stretch them with loads of vegetables. For your picky eaters who may hesitate with colorful veggies, the right seasonings and toppings can make all the difference.

Serve this chili in a bowl or a cup; with a spoon or some Siete chips; topped with avocado and cheese (if not Paleo), or crumbled Terra sea salt plantain chips.
