How to make keto garlic bread rolls - an easy low-carb, gluten free bread recipe that uses almond flour, coconut flour and cheese

Have you been missing bread on your journey into gluten-free or keto?

I have been gluten-free myself for three years now and found some gluten-free bread that isn't terrible. 

The problem with most gluten-free bread, though, is that it is very high in carbs because it often uses a blend of flours including rice flour to make.

This is the best seasonal dessert with summer fruit - and it's gluten free, vegan and paleo
Have you ever needed to have a dessert for your gluten free, grain free, dairy free, processed food free friend or vegan family member and had NO IDEA what to make? 

Or maybe you're the one with dietary restrictions and you are tired of not having dessert. 

Whether you or a friend is a vegan, paleo, or gluten free, you can still make a fun "cake" that everyone will enjoy. 

It has the added perk of being no-bake, which means no heating up your home during the summer!

It's just as pretty as a normal cake made with flour but with better-for-you ingredients. A watermelon cake truly without guilt!

This delightful gluten free dessert really takes advantage of the bounty of fresh fruit you can get during the summer.

The star of this show stopping dessert is watermelon, of course. The toppings let you get creative with blackberries, raspberries and blueberries.

The coconut frosting is sweet, creamy and to die for.

Seriously, everyone will love this fresh watermelon cake dessert recipe!

The red, white and blue colors make it perfect for patriotic holidays like the Fourth of July, Veterans Day or Memorial Day. It's sure to be a hit at any BBQ or potluck you bring it to this summer.

Iced tea is surprisingly simple to make from scratch.

how to make cherry limeade popsicles

Do you love cherry limeade? Do you ever wish you could turn your cherry limeade into a popsicle? Not just any popsicle, of course. Not a hard popsicle but the type of popsicle that is soft and easy to suck pieces off of.

Not only is this popsicle recipe the answer all your cherry limeade popsicle dreams, but it has a secret ingredient: zucchini! I know, I know. It sounds weird. But TRUST ME. This recipe won an award in a summer dessert cooking competition in 2014 when it was up against all kinds of things that didn't have weird vegetables in it. This recipe is GOOD.

How to make sugar free, gluten free, keto cloud bread - they taste like scones!
If you loved bread before you started keto or went gluten free, going without can be a hard adjustment to make. What do you eat with your tea? Dessert? As a snack? 

This delicious cinnamon cloud bread is the answer to your bready keto cravings. I like to eat them as-is with a cup of tea or bulletproof coffee. 

If you need a fat and protein boost, smear it with some almond butter and maybe even add a couple sliced strawberries. YUM! 

The inspiration for this recipe came from the "english muffins" recipe on page 158 of Vanessa Spina's book Keto Essentials: Your Complete Guide to the Ketogenic Diet (get it on Amazon or Barnes & Noble). 

Her book has all kinds of really creative keto recipes (all of which are also gluten free!). If you're looking for a great keto cookbook, I highly recommend it.

This cloud bread recipe is sweet and spicy and perfect for dessert.

If you want a cloud bread that is more well suited for savory applications, leave out the xylitol, vanilla and cinnamon (but do whisk the egg yolks with the sour cream before adding them to the egg whites on step 5). 

Creative Green Living has an awesome recipe for plain cloud bread. It's perfect for sandwiches or savory applications. I love topping mine with cream cheese, lox and capers for breakfast or an easy lunch.

Unlike other cloud bread recipes, this cloud bread is made with sour cream instead of cream cheese. I find sour cream is easier to mix smoothly and you don't have to remember to set it out to soften!

Cloud bread is also called "oopsie bread" and this cinnamon oopsie bread will be a fun twist for those looking for flavored cloud bread or flavored oopsie bread recipes.

But you didn't come here to hear me ramble. You want to learn how to make this bread! Let's get down to it!

Best detox water recipes - strawberry infused detox water recipe

Have you caught on to the infused water (or as some like to call it, detox water) craze yet? Why drink boring, plain water when you can make healthy flavored waters at home for hardly any money?

Doing something as simple as add fresh fruit and herbs to infuse water with flavor increases how much you enjoy your water - which makes you want to drink more - which gets you to drink more of the delicious infused water effortlessly!

Pssst. Incase you didn't know, I wrote THE BOOK on infused water / detox water recipes. Check it out on Amazon here!

....but back to the strawberry mint infused water recipe, because that's why you're here, right? 
This is one of my favorite recipes in the book! 

Something about the combination of sweet strawberries and fresh mint just mingle together in a way that is crisp - yet slightly sweet - in a way that is oh-so-refreshing!

We grow a mint plant mostly so I have a ready supply of fresh mint available for infused water! If you don't have your own mint plant, that's okay! Just pick up a small pack of organic mint in the produce aisle of your local grocery store or at your local farmers market.

How to sweeten coffee without sugar - Paleo, Whole30 and Keto coffee

One of the things people use as an excuse to prevent them from deciding to jump in and start a Whole 30 or paleo lifestyle is this:
"I just can't drink black coffee."

Good news friends! Not only do you NOT have to drink black coffee but you can actually have very good, very tasty coffee on both Whole 30 and paleo! No joke. Now, you may need to do coffee a little differently than you've done it before but the truth is that I'm actually enjoying my new coffee routine more than when I was over sweetening it with sugar.

Think of it less like how to sweeten coffee without sugar and more like how to enhance the coffee to make it taste awesome and help you power through your day!

How to get delicious Whole 30 and paleo coffee

Best Paleo and Whole 30 coffee ideas


Whole 30 & Paleo coffee tip #1: Start with good coffee

So this might seem obvious - but the number of people drinking bad coffee in this country is astonishing so maybe it isn't. If you are buying cheap, poor quality coffee, what you end up with in your cup will not taste amazing. Period. There are no miracles in coffee. If they cut corners in production you can taste it.

If you've been buying cheap super market coffee like Maxwell House and Folgers, consider expanding your coffee horizons. Find a small, local roaster if you can as the attention they pay to the quality of their coffee is usually quite high (look at your local farmer's market or on Craig's List). No one available? My favorite coffees available from big stores include Starbucks' Caffe Verona Coffee which has rich cocoa tones as well as World Market Vanilla Bean Coffee.
