Sweet Potato Pecan Muffins (Gluten Free, Paleo, Grain Free, Low Sugar)

Sweet potatoes are a regular in my house. You can mash them, roast them, bake with them and combine them with a variety of herbs or spices. Lately, I’ve been on a sweet potato kick as you might notice from this recipe below!

If you haven’t made these muffins yet, I encourage you to try them out asap. They’re sooooo good!

Sweet potatoes are rich in fibre, vitamin B6 and iron – all good things we need more of, especially the fibre. 

If you’re dealing with any digestive issues or constipation, I highly encourage you to start increasing your vegetable intake as well as getting in more water. I can’t tell you how many of my clients experience complete digestive relief by simply applying these 2 strategies. 

 

I ordered most of the ingredients for this recipe from NaturaMarket.ca 

  • The coconut flour
  • Baking Spices
  • Coconut Oil
  • Monk Fruit Sweetener (I love Lakanto for baking!)

 

 

I LOVE that NaturaMarket is a one-stop-shop for all things Gluten-Free, Paleo, Allergen Free and so much more. They have so many goodies on there, I pretty much shop with them weekly. So much so, that I reached out to see if my community can get a discount so you can try them out for yourself!

Pantry & Baking Essentials for Grain-Free + Gluten Free Cooking

We’re in full on Autumn mode here in Southern Ontario and the weather has turned cold and a little dreary….which means it’s the perfect time to hunker down, get cozy in the kitchen and try out some new recipes!

Today’s video is all about the main ingredients you’ll need to cook your way through my book The 30 Day Hormone Solution (if you have your copy, get it out and let’s dive in!!)

But this is also an awesome checklist of ingredients is for ANYONE who wants to stock up on…

  • Foods to support immunity, gut health & overall health, each and every day
  • Grain-free + Gluten-free options to help keep your blood sugar stable, and also to help if you’re suffering from any level of autoimmunity (grains can trigger inflammation for some people)
  • Staples + dried goods to always have on hand for cooking and baking

Let’s dive in…

Staple Foods Checklist

  • Variety of vegetables – cauliflower, kale & leafy greens, sweet potato, etc — variety is key. Right now, if fresh veggies aren’t available to you, try to source & keep some frozen veggies on hand
  • Variety of protein sources Meats, poultry, grass fed beef, free range eggs, wild caught fish (I didn’t mention beans & legumes in this video, but especially right now — these would be EXCELLENT choices to have on hand. In fact, I have a delicious recipe for Moroccan Chickpea Soup over on the blog that would be super filling and affordable to make)
  • It’s important to have a variety of protein sources because protein breaks down into amino acids, and those amino acids go onto to support your body & optimize your hormonal health
  • Variety of healthy fats, which include avocado oil, olive oil, grass fed butter, coconut oil, ghee, avocados, coconut milk, etc
  • Gluten-free & Grain-free flours – almond flour, cassava flour, coconut flour, tapioca starch, arrowroot flour (most of which can be ordered off of an online market like NaturaMarket — you can use the code HEALTHYHORMONES2020 to save 10% off your first order)
  • Nutrient dense seeds – hemp, flax and chia, which are great for your hormonal health, plus they’re high in fibre and therefore support detoxification
  • Cacao Powder – for baking — hello baking enthusiast over here!
  • Monk Fruit Sweetener – I like to keep my baking low to no sugar, so this helps me make that happen. I like the brand Lakanto (again, it can be ordered off an online market like NaturaMarket — you can use the code HEALTHYHORMONES2020 to save 10% off your first order)

  • NutPods — the most delicious dairy-free creamers OF LIFE! I use them in coffee’s and elixirs (again, it can be ordered off an online market like NaturaMarket)
  • Nut & Seed Butters – Cashew butter, tahini, sunflower seed butter, almond butter, etc
  • Lily’s sugar free chocolate chips — (again, it can be ordered off of NaturaMarket — you can use the code HEALTHYHORMONES2020 to save 10% off your first order.)
  • A real good quality sea salt (I love redmond real salt) sea salt is crucial for your adrenals. A great way to support your adrenals is with water + a pinch of sea salt + freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Lastly, Bone Broth. I make my own! I have a 10-step process which can be found inside my book.

Almost everything I mentioned in this video can be ordered off of NaturaMarket — as you can probably tell by now, I pretty much order from them every week! They have all of my favourites, including NutPods (for elixirs) and Siete Chips…for snacking!

Almond Butter Fat Bombs (Gluten Free, Low Sugar, Dairy Free) – Sneak Peak Recipe from My Book!

So, you go sugar-free or low-carb for a while and then—BAM—one bite of a sweet cake or cookie or piece of bread and your cravings come back full force! 

Ever notice that? It’s normal. 

Sugar triggers pleasure receptors in your brain, and that causes you to want more and more and more. 

And it’s a nasty cycle.

You crave sugar, so you eat it and then you keep eating it and then you feel sluggish and it’s just not a fun place to be in.


This is why I like to keep my sugar intake very low and my fat intake high. It keeps my sugar cravings at bay, it helps to balance my blood sugar, it keeps my brain fuelled and it provides me with lots of energy. 

Plus, healthy fat is incredibly important for hormonal health.

This is one of the 60 recipes from my book The 30 Day Hormone Soltuion. You can order your copy at hormonesolutionbook.com  (plus receive over $350 in amazing free bonuses!)
 
In the meantime, test out this recipe and enjoy!!

Almond Butter Fat Bombs

Author: Samantha Gladish

Ingredients

  • 3⁄4 cup (156 g) cacao butter, cut into small chunks 
  • 2 tbsp (27 g) coconut oil or ghee 
  • 3 tbsp (18 g) raw cacao powder 
  • 3 heaping tbsp (about 54 g) crunchy or smooth almond butter

  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 2 tbsp (24 g) monk fruit, Swerve or liquid stevia, or to taste (optional) 
  • 1/2 cup (42 g) coconut chips, roughly chopped or broken into small pieces (chopped nuts would work well, too) 

Instructions

  • Line a large muffin tin with silicone liners or parchment baking cups. Over a double boiler, melt the cacao butter and coconut oil together. As they start to melt, add the cacao powder and almond butter, gently stirring everything together. 
  • Add the vanilla, sea salt and sweetener of choice (if using). When melted, remove from the heat and stir in the coconut chips. Pour the mixture into the silicone muffin molds, filling just one-quarter of the way. 
  • Place the muffin tin in the freezer for 1 hour to set. Then remove it from freezer when ready to eat. If you are using the silicone molds, the fat bombs pop right out with ease!

Grain Free Everything Bagels (Grain Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Okay Quarantiners! You need some GRAIN FREE EVERYTHING BAGELS IN YOUR LIFE! Been making these for months now and have mastered them. Meaning – it’s time to share them with you. 

I took grains out of my diet a few years ago when I was first diagnosed with Hashimoto’s.

Grains can actually be an inflammatory trigger for many, causing digestive upset, indigestion and bloating. This is especially the case for those suffering with any level of autoimmunity. When I removed them, my own bloating reduced significantly.

Now, if you’ve been a part of my community for a while, you know that I’m a huge baking enthusiast.

When I initially went grainfree, I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be able to do as much baking as I’d like…but, I rose to the challenge and started testing new recipes in the kitchen.

These everything bagels are grain free, gluten free and dairy free. They’re also lower on the glycemic index than a classic bagel, they’re loaded with way more nutrients, and they are downright delicious too! 

I love to whip up a breakfast sandwich with these babies. Give them a try and let me know what you think! 

Grain Free Everything Bagels

Ok Quarantiners! You need some GRAIN FREE EVERYTHING BAGELS IN YOUR LIFE! Been making these for months now and have mastered them. Meaning - it’s time to share them with you

Author: Samantha Gladish

Ingredients

  • 1 cup arrowroot flour
  • 1 cup cassava flour
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 3 tbsp nut milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • to taste Everything But the Bagel Seasoning (or you could just sub for sesame seeds). I got my seasoning from Trader Joes.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Meanwhile boil a big pot of water.In a blender, add all of the dough ingredients except for the EB seasoning.
    Once combined, (it might be a bit sticky) transfer the dough to your parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Use your hands to form a ball (again - it might be a bit sticky.
    I find leaving it for a few minutes helps make it less sticky, but you could always sprinkle some cassava flour on your parchment to help you better work with the dough).
  • Then separate into four equal parts. Use your hands to roll each part into a round ball, then using your thumb, poke a hole in the middle, keeping the bagel in tact.
    Gently flatten and form your bagel. Once the water is boiling, gently drop them in the water.
  • Once each one floats to the top (about one minute), transfer back to your baking sheet. Sometimes they can get stuck in the bottom of the pot, so pay attention and use your spatula to unstick it.
  • After all are placed onto the baking sheet, brush each bagel with a bit of olive oil (optional) and sprinkle with EB seasoning. Bake 23-25 minutes.

Sneak Peak Recipe: Protein Packed Crepes (Grain-Free, Gluten-Free)

This delicious recipe is one of the 60 grain-free recipes that can be found inside my book The 30-Day Hormone Solution. You can get your copy at hormonesolutionbook.com

Breakfast is hands down my favourite meal of the day. Often times I eat leftovers for breakfast. From salmon to chicken to beef, my morning meal is always protein packed. 

I often find that many of my clients eat too many ‘breakfasty’ type foods in the morning. I mean, I get it. This is what we were taught to eat. From cereals, to bagels to muffins and and drive thru breakfast sandwiches, these types of foods, do not fill you up, but instead fill you out!

Your body craves protein in the morning. It will help to stoke your metabolism plus balance your blood sugar which is key for weight loss, satiety between meals, managing PMS symptoms, headaches… and well, let’s just say that insulin is important in many (like hundreds) of important processes in the body. The more you manage it with food, the healthier you’ll feel overall. 

Managing insulin and blood sugar levels is at the core of everything I do with my clients. This is why women lose weight effortlessly and my clients have easier breezier cycles. 

So where do crepes fall into all of this?

Well, let’s face it. From pancakes, to waffles, to crepes, we all want a delicious breakfast, especially on the weekends when we can spend more time cooking in the morning and not feeling like we have to rush off to work. 

And as for crepes, it was my fiancé who really got me loving them. His family used to enjoy them regularly and for years now we’ve been trying to master the perfect gluten free crepe recipe. 

Trust me, there have been many fails, until this one!

This is the perfect crepe recipe ever! It’s so easy to make, it’s packed with protein from eggs and best of all, it’s gluten free! Now that’s the kind of crepe I want to indulge in. 

You can enjoy these crepes sweet or savoury. On the sweet side, I like to warm fresh berries and gently mush them, making a simple homemade jam or smearing on grass fed butter, almond butter and filling my crepe with fruit. 

On the savoury side you can make some scrambled eggs, sauté some spinach and roll it up in your crepe. 

The possibilities are endless! Hope you enjoy these crepes as much as we do 😉

Ingredients
  1. 4 eggs
  2. 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  3. 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  4. 1/2 cup almond flour
  5. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. Pinch of sea salt
  8. Coconut oil, for oiling pan
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl (minus the coconut oil) and whisk together until smooth. A few lumps may remain, that's ok.
  2. Heat a small amount of coconut oil in a skillet or crepe pan over medium heat.
  3. Add the batter to the pan using a soup ladle or 1/4 cup measuring cup, tilting the pan gently to evenly spread out the batter. You want a thin layer covering your pan. It's like making a pancake, but a thin and large pancake!
  4. Cook until the edges start to set, then gently flip and cook on the other side for about 1-2 minutes.
  5. Transfer the fresh crepe onto a plate or wire rack to cool and or eat right away, while still warm. Make remaining crepes with batter and spread on your favourite toppings!
Notes
  1. *We use a fairly large crepe pan which gives us approximately 5 crepes. Depending on the size of your pan, you can make smaller ones and more of them.
  2. *You can refrigerate any leftovers and keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Sneak Peak Recipe: The Bieler Broth — The Ultimate Soup Recipe to Detoxify Your Body and Restore Gut Health

This is one of the 60 Gluten-Free and Grain-Free recipes that can be found inside my book The 30-Day Hormone Solution. You can visit hormonesolutionbook.com to order a copy today!

Having coached hundreds of women, I can confidently say that I’ve not had one client that didn’t have an issue with their hormones or gut health. 

We all have issues in these areas on some level, just some more than others. 

If you’ve been following me for some time now, you know I’m all about helping women to lose weight & balance their hormones with delicious food. My flagship program The Metabolic Reset was created and designed to walk you through my step-by-step method for resetting your metabolism and your hormonal balance. This 8-week program is full of healthy & delicious recipes (like the one I’m sharing below) that will support weight-loss and your hormones, without leaving you feeling deprived!

If you want to feel vibrant, more energized, lose weight and balance your hormones WITHOUT deprivation, it’s essential that you support the health of your liver and gut on the daily.

This isn’t difficult to accomplish.

Making sure to drink 3L of water each day, loading up on green vegetables, sourcing out quality pasture raised protein sources, eliminating sugar and getting in enough rest and relaxation — these habits, practiced on a daily basis, are the things that create REAL + LASTING results. 

And let’s face it, they aren’t that hard to do!

We just have to make them a priority and commit to them daily. Just like brushing your teeth. Make it a habit and before you know it, you’ll be doing these things without ever having to think about them.

The problem lies when we completely neglect our health, our diet, stop exercising, pile on the stress and take on way more than we can handle. Stress hormones rise, weight comes on, fatigue kicks in and before you know it, you feel like a pile of s**t, can barely make it up the stairs and can’t even recognize the person in the mirror. 

Enter the Bieler Broth. A simple recipe that takes minutes to make that will help to restore gut health, support detoxification and provide your body with the essentials nutrients it needs to thrive. 

This incredible broth is a gentle yet powerful way to help detox your body and improve your digestive track. It was created by Dr. Henry Bieler, a visionary American physician and author of Food Is Your Best Medicine. He advocated the treatment of disease through diet and believed that the body has a natural ability to heal itself. He believed that the primary cause of disease is due to imbalances in the body caused by lifestyle mis-management and poor diet.

I would have to agree with Dr. Bieler! I see it day in and day out with my clients. 

You can simply make large batches of this soup and keep it in the fridge to enjoy for a few days. It tastes delicious, doesn’t require any fancy ingredients and best of all, it’s incredibly healing. 

This famous broth is rich in potassium and sodium, alkalizes the body, and supports the liver and the adrenal glands. It also helps the pancreas control blood sugar, which is key for my clients who are struggling with diabetes or PCOS.

The original recipe does not include ghee, but I find it adds that perfect touch of healthy fats. Fat is not only essential for healthy hormones, but it’s also essential for helping to transport nutrients to your cells.

Use this recipe on it’s own, or combine it with my Metabolic Reset program for incredible results.

You can join my FREE 5-Day Sugar Detox challenge for lots of sugar free and healthy recipes HERE.

Now, tahini is the star of the show in this recipe. Not sure what Tahini is?

It’s ground sesame seeds made into a paste. Just like almonds ground into almond butter. Tahini is loaded with plant based calcium, which means it offers up some bone protective benefits. If you don’t have tahini on hand, you can swap it out for almond butter or sun butter. Both would work well!

If you’re looking for a delicious and healthified treat to serve up this holiday season, whip up a batch of these blondies!
