I ran across this linkhttp://almostbourdain.blogspot.com/2010/07/gluten-free-5-minute-chocolate-mug-cake.html on Hashimoto 411 on facebook and adapted it to suit my needs. YUMMY!


Take a good sized mug and add 4 tab. buckwheat flour, 3 tab. real maple syrup, 3 tab. olive oil, 3-4 tab. sunflower milk with vanilla and a little sea salt. Stir well and then cook in microwave for 3 minutes. Enjoy! Now try your own version!

Rhubarb compote over buckwheat pancakes

Since fruit bloats me (fructose intolerance) I was looking for something fruitlike to satisfy a craving...rhubarb is related to buckwheat so I gave it a try. It is technically a vegetable. The results were wonderful!

I found frozen rhubarb, nothing added, in my grocery store. I simmered it with real maple syrup. Ladled over my buckwheat pancakes, it made for a wonderful breakfast!


1 cup GF organic buckwheat flour

2 tab. arrowroot starch

1 tab. baking powder

sea salt


1/2 cup sunflower seed milk

1/2 cup water (more or less for thickness preference)


2 tab. olive oil

Let rest for 10 minutes then cook on a lightly greased griddle. Flip. ENJOY!

Fruit is definitely not my friend!

Well...it's been a long road to discovery...but I am closer than ever. FRUIT! OUT! I began this journey for vain reasons too...hate the bloated belly. Eliminating fruit, fructose...helping tremendously to flatten the midsection. It is worth it. I like fruit, but not the bloating.

Sticking to veggies...and homemade buckwheat baked goods, homemade soups, and watching it when out to eat. Hey, I made sweet potato chips in the oven. Delicious! Google Martha Stewart's recipe. I did. Good stuff!

bye bye fruit...

Juicing is juic-a-licious!

I made my first attempt at juicing, inspired by my son Patrick doing it after watching the documentary, FAT, SICK, AND NEARLY DEAD by Joe Cross. I am hooked! It was fun and the results were delicious and satisfying nutritionally. In other words I felt good inside! YEAH!

I used Romaine lettuce, celery, onion, and cucumber; such a bright shade of green. Packed with flavor it was. I drank a glass that day and had another this morning.

Getting all giggly over juicing!
