|Homemade Kombucha with Berries, Lime & Mint|
It has been a good challenge to come up with exciting and enjoyable things to eat, I just wish I had a little more energy as it is definitely taking extra thought and prep time to do this. My 'tablenosh' dinner party days almost seem like a lifetime ago, but I definitely had more energy and was constantly learning new things and concocting new dishes. It is good to be back in that zone to some degree, I am just at a very different stage of life not to mention different part of the world! Maybe I will be able to crank out a 'tablenosh' dinner or two this summer for RVA...we shall see or at least get my 'side porch' underground cafe happening...
|AIP BBQ Chicken Flatbread|
So what have I been cooking and eating? Lots of salads, smoothies and gelatin in everything - who knew grass fed beef gelatin was so versatile and could be put in so many things as a added source of protein. And in the AIP world you can make a 'gelatin' egg and use it as a binder for baking. And those of you who know me know how much I love baking, so I have been very pleased to figure this out. One of my recent favorites is AIP flatbread! The recipe came from another bog site called the curious coconut and was my favorite recipe so far, it made enough for two and it was so nice to have the extra already made for the following day. I made a few alterations to the bbq sauce and added some extra salt and herbs to the flat bread and was very delighted with the outcome!
