Why Coconut Flour Works for Me

Bag of Nutiva Coconut Flour

I have finally found satisfaction in flour. I am gluten free and mostly grain free. I have been struggling with losing that extra 20 lbs my whole life. I have been in love with cooking and baking everything I could since going gluten free three years ago due to Celiac . It is hard to shed these extra pounds while battling a monster sized sweet tooth. This is where coconut flour comes in. It is naturally gluten free, grain free, and low carb.

My Favorite Sesame Spinach Gluten Free

This Asian inspired dish is low in calories and huge on flavor. I have always loved spinach and was looking for new ways to fit it into my diet. This time I decided to put an Asian spin on it and came up with this wonderful mouth watering side dish. The flavors are light enough to compliment the spinach and not overpower it. I could eat this with every meal. I have eaten this whole recipe as my meal. I just can’t stop going back for one more mouthful Yes, it is that good!

Simple Low Calorie Gluten Free Peanut Butter Icing

Bowl of Healthy PB2 Peanut Butter Icing

I love to bake. If I didn’t I probably would not be writing a food blog. I began by baking gluten free recipes I found on various sites and not worrying what the calorie content was. I ate these baked goods like they were going out of style. I watched my waist expand quickly and realized I needed to make a change. I am a sweets addict especially when it comes to chocolate. I needed to figure out my own way to incorporate my sweet tooth into a lower calorie diet.

Gluten Free Beef Stew

This image is a stock photo. It is not chicken stock or beef stock. It is simply an image I had to pull from the interweb because I got hungry and ate all the stew. No, I did not save you any, sorry.  I promise to take photos of my beef stew next time I make it. Until then you get to see this pretty photo which actually looks like my beef stew but with a much better food photographer behind the camera. I can’t seem to make my food look as tempting in photos as it does in real life. Anybody have some tips?
