Can't eat gluten anymore? Me either. After realizing gluten was making me very sick, I was propelled into an interesting journey with food. And cooking at home became essential then grew into a total obsession. We try to eat the most natural and unprocessed foods available so most of it is naturally gluten-free. We try to keep the processed food to a minimum and find the cleanest versions available. Even if you are lucky enough to not be Celiac or gluten sensitive and just looking for healthier alternatives – this book is for you, too.
I write up a dinner menu each week to allocate out proteins or other ingredients. It saves a lot of time and money and reduces our food waste. To share the work I've done for the past few years, I'm writing a series of self-published eCookbooks and started a food blog where you can find current weekly menus, new recipes and helpful information.
This is Volume 2 in the eCookbook series, The Winter Edition, containing the weekly menus starting the week of Thanksgiving. We are much healthier by this point and moving away from our “junk food” roots. Most recipes are hearty winter dishes and a variety of ways to dress up chicken. Basically, a Mediterranean diet with a Texas flair. Plus more baked goodies that make perfect breakfasts for the week!

Updated introduction, new pictures, improved formatting, and few recipe improvements.
This cook book is amazing. As a busy wife and mother I have found it to be incredibly daunting to try and find recipes that are quick, easy, healthy, gluten free, and are something that my entire family wants to eat. This checks all the boxes. The recipes are easy to read and follow, all the ingredients can be found at your local supermarket, they are quick, and most importantly the food tastes just as good as it smells. This really is a fabulous cook book.
