By DaNelle Wolford of Weed ‘em & Reap

DaNelle Wolford is here to share the secret of how she lost 35 pounds and healed her chronic illness. The title says it all: Yes, you can still eat dessert (every day, if you want!) and lose weight naturally, without restriction or sacrifice.

Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Pie- A Gluten Free, Real Food Recipe

by Amy on 11/26/2014

  

Old Fashioned Gluten Free Buttermilk Pie Recipe, Real Food Recipe

I love buttermilk pie.

Creamy, custardy, dreamy sweet and oh-so-decadent, it’s Southern comfort food at it’s finest.

But conventional recipes leave you feeling too full and bloated, and pack quite the punch with gluten heavy crusts, sweetened condensed milk and tons of sugar.

But, never fear! We’ve made over this lovely recipe with all real food, gluten free ingredients and eased up on the sugar (but you won’t even notice it) to make this a treat worth making…

Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Pie- Gluten Free
by Amy Love, Real Food Whole Health

Ingredients:
1/2 cup (8 TBL) organic butter, melted
3/4 cup organic cane sugar
3 organic, pasture-raised eggs
1 TBL pure vanilla extract
1 cup organic buttermilk
3 TBL all purpose gluten-free flour (I like Trader Joe’s blend)
1/8 tsp unrefined sea salt
1 gluten free pie shell, homemade or purchased, unbaked

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F.

Beat butter and sugar until smooth and then add eggs and vanilla.  Mix well.
Add buttermilk, gluten free flour and salt.
Pour into an unbaked gluten-free pie shell and put into oven on middle rack.
Bake at 350 F for 55-65 minutes, or until golden and a knife comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the pie.
Allow pie to cool before refrigerating until well-chilled.

Notes:
No time to make a crust? Though I typically make my own pie crust, I have used Wholly Wholesome gluten free pie crusts with excellent results.
Leftover buttermilk? Freeze the leftover in an ice cube tray and then store in a ziptop bag in the freezer. You’ll have it when another recipe calls for buttermilk!

Gluten Free Powdered Doughnut Hole Recipe

by Amy on 10/31/2014

  

Gluten Free Powdered Doughnut Holes Recipe

These gluten-free baked doughnut (donut) holes are sooo good! A fun, pop-them-in-your-mouth treat, these will be a new favorite at your house for sure.

Try them with a cup of hot apple cider or tea for a real delight…

Gluten Free Powdered Doughnut Holes
by Amy Love, Real Food Whole Health

Makes approximately 2 dozen doughnut holes

Ingredients:
1 ¼ cup gluten free flour blend (I like Trader Joe’s All Purpose Gluten Free Flour Mix)
½ cup organic, granulated sugar
1 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
Pinch of real, unrefined sea salt
4 Tablespoons organic butter, melted
1 organic egg
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
½ cup organic milk
¾ cup organic powdered sugar, for dusting

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 F.

In a medium sized glass mixing bowl, whisk to combine gluten free flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
In another bowl, mix melted (and slightly cooled) butter, vanilla extract and milk.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to mix well.
Generously butter a mini muffin tin to avoid sticking.
Scoop about a Tablespoon of dough into each one, filling about 2/3 full.
Bake at 400 F for about 10 minutes, or until edges are slightly browned and batter is set.
Allow to cool for about 5 minutes, and then roll doughnut holes through powdered sugar.

Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for a day or two.

Notes

Dairy-free?
Coconut oil can be used in place of butter, and coconut or other non-dairy milk can be used in place of milk.

Not gluten-free?
Standard all-purpose flour will work fine in this recipe as well.

When Is The Best Time of Day to Take Your Probiotic?

by Amy on 09/26/2014

  

When Is The Best Time To Take Your Probiotic Supplement

While taking your probiotic any time of day will be of benefit, it turns out there might be an optimal time to take this beneficial bacteria supplement.

Can you guess when it is?

Many people think that first thing in the morning is a good time to take their probiotic, and if it’s at least 45 minutes to an hour before your breakfast, then that can work out well.

However, some folks report a bit of extra gas or slight bloating, especially when first starting a probiotic regimen, and that’s not quite the ideal scenario when you are on the way to work.

Taking a probiotic at meal time is not generally recommended, due to the increased acid in our stomachs- which we need for optimal digestion!- but I do recommend eating cultured foods and beverages with your meals. This is a very traditional practice that supports digestion and does provide some beneficial bacteria for a healthy gut.

Turns out that for the most part, taking your probiotic before bed (at least 2 hours after eating your evening meal) is the best time of day for optimal results!

The main exception?

If you are also on a prescribed antibiotic, take your probiotic as far away from antibiotic dosages as possible, even if that means taking the probiotic earlier in the day.

Do you take a probiotic supplement? Have you tried taking it before bed? Tell us more in the comments below!
