Cinnamon French Toast:
Dip 2 slices of gluten-free bread in 1 beaten egg.
Sprinkle with 1/8 tsp cinnamon.
Heat pan on medium and spray with coconut oil cooking spray.
Cook bread 3 approx 3 minutes per side, until golden. Top with 1/2 cup lactose-free Greek yogurt sweetened with stevia and 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries.
Summer Pasta Salad:
2 cups uncooked gluten-free pasta (brown rice or corn pasta will work nicely)
1 each, sliced: green, red and yellow pepper
1 red onion, sliced
1 zucchini, halved lengthwise and chopped
1 eggplant, quarter lengthwise and sliced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
4-5 oz goat cheese
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/4 tsp each sea salt and black pepper
2 tbsp extra virgin, organic olive oil
1/2 cup chopped fresh chives
1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
Cook pasta according to package directions.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mist baking sheet with coconut oil cooking spray. Add peppers and onions in a single layer to it. Roast in oven approx 10 minutes, till brown but not soft. Transfer to a large bowl. Repeat with eggplant, cherry tomatoes and zucchini; add to large bowl with onions and peppers when done.
Meanwhile prepare dressing, blending all dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor (I like my mini food-processor).
Toss cooled pasta and veggies together with dressing. One serving = one cup.
I borrowed this recipe from Dani Spies. Her website it chock-full of great recipes; clean eatin and delish. Def check her out!
Salsa Crockpot Chicken (2 ingredients):
I swear this has to be the simplest and most delish chicken dish evah! Ready?
1 jar of your fave low-sodium salsa
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Add all ingredients to your slow cooker or crockpot (whichever you call it in your neck of the woods). Set cooker to lowest setting, 8-10 hours (ok if you are in a rush, setting it on high 4-6 hours will work too, but I find the longer and lower you cook this dish, the better it tastes).
One serving = 3.5 oz of chicken and 1/2 cup “sauce”.
