Chocoholics, this one is for you. It’s wheat-free and gluten-free (not the same thing, contrary to some people’s assumption), and lower in sugar than many typical desserts. The base of this cake, though, is fudgy and rich, and the other two layers are whipped, creamy, light, and delicious.Continue reading “Gluten-Free Chocolate Pie”
Happy Wintery, Snowy Monday, my fellow dessert devotees,
Get excited for a roundup below of the most scrumptious, tastiest cakes you have ever sampled. All of which fall under at least one (though many fall under more) of the following tiers: grain-free, gluten-free, lactose-free, low in sugar, or sugar-free.
Cake you can actually feel semi good about eating! Though on tasting any of these, I have a sense you will feel awesome about eating them at that point 😉

Most of the items on offering for usual snacking, as well as know, are not great for ones health. Chips, candy, even most granola bars which, though claim to be healthy, are loaded with sugar and carbs.
Here is a list of snacks you can feel good about reaching for, which dont hit your health with the damage that most of the others out there do:
The chocolate on these crunchy almonds is surprisingly delicious. Rich, decadent, though a healthy snack for nibbling on. So yum.
These bars are my favorite to date. They are chewy, oatey, and gluten free. The triple berry flavor is also delish.
This stuff is AMAZING with Greek yogurt. I cant get enough.
Like Goldfish or Cheezits, but without the grain/gluten/wheat!
Tacos are one of the best dishes on the planet. However, in consuming a diet largely void of grains/wheat/bread, this makes continuing my love affair with said hand held treat a tough one. However, to my relief and thrill, I found the most delicious recipe. Granted, these are more toastados than taco, but man oh man, are they tasty. Totally on par with and hitting the taco spot, though without the bad-for-your-body ingredients.
Grain/gluten free, lactose free, sugar free, these are a homey, scrumptious meal that is also awesome for your health!
Ready for the easiest way to pack a nutritional punch to your body today? A drink laden with nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and glow inducing ingredients?
People tend to underestimate the power of a homemade smoothie, how awesome, rejuvenating, and fabulous for your health it is.
Four ingredients only. Here is how to make this nutritional powerhouse (just a few ingredients and a blender are needed):
The best wintertime treat, no question. Well, aside from say, chocolate mousse. Chocolate chip cookies are one of those much loved, classic, quintessential desserts on every table with a truly inclusive spread of sweet treats. Personally, they are one of my favorites. Especially when freshly baked out of the oven, and the chocolate is still just a tad melty. Oh boy.
I was skeptical on making these coconut flour (aka gluten/grain free) chocolate chip cookies, worrying they would be dry, or weirdly textured. They weren’t. Tasted just like the real deal. A fluffy, cakey textured chocolate chip cookie. Yum. These are the new much obsessed over dessert in our home at the moment. Try them yourself and see. You wont be disappointed.

Dear Sweet. Raw. Free. Readers, Fellow Foodies, Bakers and Chefs,
I am excited to share with you an expanding of the content on which I will focus here on Sweet. Raw. Free.
Alongside the usual posting of recipes (all of which will continue to fall under one, if not more, of the following: gluten/grain free, sugar free, lactose free, or raw), I will begin posting articles in relation to other realms of health (such as, nutrition, sleep, physical activity, emotional and social health, relational health, and more).
Recipes will be interspersed with articles of this nature, adding to the overall fullness of my offering a blog in favor of the encouragement toward leading your healthiest (and happiest) life.
In the meantime I would love to offer, in the mood of healthier eating and New Years resolutions, a round-up of my favorite recipes for your perusing and sampling pleasure:
Happy New Year with this succulent sweet! Chocolate cheesecake continues to rein over all the desserts I have sampled, making it a stedfast favorite. I dont eat it often, for the caloric and sugar bomb it is, but man oh man, is this a tasty treat and one that when I do indulge, I revel over.
This particular version, while not sugar free, is considerably lower in sugar than usual cheesecake versions. Though there is already sugar in the Oreos and bittersweet chocolate, there is no further added sugar in the cake (which most recipes do). Though the crust contains wheat, you can easily make it without.
If you would like an equally enticing though gluten/grain free dessert, eliminate the crust. I promise, it will be just as scrumptious without.
Enjoy this decadent, sinfully sweet dessert, without so much guilt.
Hi all! Happy Holidays! Just in time for New Years and all those health-related resolutions…
For a slightly different posting, I am going to offer a review of an excellent, health-oriented book I read recently. “Wheat Belly: lose the wheat, lose the weight, and find your path back to health” by Dr. William Davis.
With the arrival of the new year and everyone vowing to overhaul their diet and health, this article seemed an ideal topic.
A book on my perpetually growing, never-ending, “to read” list for years that I just now got around to reading. And wow, was this an eye-opening, sobering read indeed.
I used to tout the belief that, while bread wasn’t great for you, it was sugar that was the ultimate evil. Sugar is horrible for your health, that truth still holds, but on reading this, I learned that wheat is the food to avoid at all costs. At least, if you wish to remain disease free, age well, not gain tons of weight over the years (and no, exercise will not keep wheat related weight gain off), nor have neurological issues, diabetes, or heart disease.
I was absolutely flabbergasted to read just how awful wheat is for both our physical and mental well being. It was a bit depressing (because who doesn’t love pasta?), though a mind-blowing, and thus, incredibly important read to say the least.
And further, wheat isn’t one of those things you can just “enjoy in moderation.” Wheat is a food that, anytime even a bit of it enters your system, it wreaks havoc and sets in motion all the damage I will now describe below.
