Grain free garlic bread will be your new favorite healthy side dish along with a plate of zucchini pasta or pizza!
Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I had this crazy idea of posting a healthy recipe roundup. I know –> a Healthy Recipe Round up in the New Year? Who does that? (That’s sarcasm) But, as I was typing this out something kind of bugged me. That word. Healthy. Feel like it’s been used and abused. Well, that is unless you’re referring to Healthy Bites. Ha ha.
Anyway, that word. It’s used quite loosely these days, which can be good and bad. Why? Because Healthy to you is probably different to me. Wouldn’t you say?
For instance, I think a glass of wine a night is healthy. You may not.
I think snacking from multiple Nuttzo packets each day is healthy, you may not eat peanut butter and all.
I think giving your body we can rest is healthy. You may not think that many days off is.
But you see, that’s okay. No one should force another ones “healthy” on you. You have to find what’s makes you feel good yourself. And sometimes that takes a of trial and error.
Today my healthy is what makes me feel GOOD! Eating gluten-free makes me feel good because it helps me absorb more nutrients and it helps heal my gut, obviously. So that’s what I’m going to post about. That’s my “healthy” round up. The GOOD for YOU and Gluten Free kind. Or maybe i should say GOOD for ME. Whatever floats your boat.
Some of the recipes above might be just what you’re looking for to make you feel good too. Let me know what you think. Oh and don’t forget my recipe below. It’s a new favorite and definitely a good for you gluten free kind.
GF/DF Protein Garlic Bread
1 cup Unsweetened Protein powder (I used Growing Naturals Original Pea Protein)
5 eggs separated (save the yolk)
1 ¼ cup egg whites
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon black pepper and sea salt
2-3 tablespoon Nutritional Yeast (optional)
Coconut oil or Spray
Combine all your egg whites (and the ones separated) into a large bowl. Beat for about 2 minutes or until fluffy.
Slowly fold in your protein and mix again with hand or mixer. Fold in your egg yolk. Last, stir in your seasoning.
Pour batter into an oiled (I used coconut spray) bread pan. Bake at 325F for 30 minutes or so. Remove let it cool before slicing or touching.
Notes: You can use any type of protein. If you are vegan, try using flax egg or chia egg. I haven’t tried that yet but it could work.
Goes great with cream cheese! Although that does not make it dairy free anymore.
What’s your healthy? Or what’s your “good for you” lifestyle?
