My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free. This journey started as a journey to regain my health and has lead to gaining a new found knowledge on writing and creating recipes. This journey is just beginning. I have learned so much along the way. Do you feel like giving up this grain free, AIP, Keto diets? I think all of us who follow this way of life have had those thoughts run through our head. You have got this and you have me to encourage you. Some days it all seems overwhelming. I mean if I want ketchup, steak sauce or salad dressing I have to make it myself from scratch. That means sometimes it takes a little planning.
I tend to make ketchup, mayo, and steak sauce about one a or twice a month. I do make yogurt a lot more frequently than that. I have to look ahead to what I think I might be making for breakfast, lunch or dinner for the next two to three days.
I don’t like eating the same things all the time. Hard to believe? Probably not if you are a regular to my blog. I like my food to be made fresh for the day I eat it. I do however on occasion eat leftovers. I had to make my family stop eating my Caramel Espresso Chocolate Chip Banana Bread so that I could turn it into French Toast the following day. This is such a decadent French Toast. But, oh, so yummy. I think you could serve this French Toast as a dessert. Enjoy with a good latte, chai tea or a great cup of Earl Grey tea. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hopefully, your little visit with me has made your day a little brighter as you have made mine.
