Make your own Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour in the comfort of your home. Blend, mix and get baking! It works like magic in recipes that call for all purpose flour yet you want a gluten-free variety.
I've already given it the ultimate test in baking. I made one batch of gluten-free buns (I'll share the recipe tomorrow) with regular all purpose flour and then made a batch with the gluten-free all purpose flour. I preferred the gluten-free variety. They were tastier, light, fluffy and held together wonderfully. Success!
Combine ingredients in a mixing bowl. Whisk together until well combined. Store in a sealed container. Doubles, triples, quadruples well!
Making rice flour is pretty darn easy with a high speed blender. You place rice in the blender, blend on speed 1 for one full cycle, then blend on speed 5 for one full cycle. Scrape sides and repeat if needed. Use a fine mesh filter to filter any large hard pieces to ensure only the finest flour is available. That's it! How satisfying.
Brown Rice Flour
Depending where you live, you may or may not find rice flour, yet you can almost always find rice. I love empowering myself and others to "do it yourself"! Rice flour can be used in a number of gluten-free recipes, offers a mild flavor and is easy to digest. Score! It can be used as a thickening agent or in baking for light or crisp treats.

This rice was created on-the-go while we were traveling. We'd get into a hotel room late and be without fresh fruit or vegetables so I had to get creative quick! Thankfully I pre-planned and brought my rice cooker and some other goods. I ended up taking a blend of spices, combined them with rice, lentils and quinoa creating a balanced meal for two. We ended up LOVING the flavorful, feel-good mix and have enjoyed it more than once at home since returning. I'll ask - travel rice? And he'll say yes! When we're home I'll add in garlic and onions for added health and flavor. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

Thai Red Chili Hot Sauce surrounds a bounty of vegetables that have been stir-fried in a wok with a touch of coconut oil. We've enjoyed this meal three times already since creating it. I love serving it knowing it has cups upon cups of vegetables. The Thai Red Chili Peppers are surprisingly good for you too! Chilis have been shown to help burn fat, lower blood sugar levels, boost circulation, help thin the blood helping to prevent strokes, reduce inflammation, provide pain relief, clear congestion, stop the spread of prostate cancer and more.
Pass me a plate, I'm taking care of myself with a big serving of vegetables, rice and chilis that will make me feel full yet fabulous! You can too! Here is the anticipated recipe, this was very popular on instagram!

I hope you all enjoy this delicious new recipe!!
PS - My new cookbook is now for sale on Amazon and is selling, hooray! I'd love it if were in your kitchen! I'm working on the e-version now! :)
Take your senses to Thailand over a big steaming bowl of Kao Pad Thai Fried Rice. Perhaps you envision the tropical beaches that look like they are out of a movie, or that you are dining at a large royal palace, visiting a temple afterwards and seeing the many Buddha figures. Maybe you envision this meal in the fast paced city at a styling restaurant. Or maybe reality will sink in that you are just at home in your comfy clothes enjoying a dish of homemade Kao Pad Thai Fried Rice. At least for the duration of the meal you can try to envision being swept away, if only for a moment. The savory flavors whirled together had my husband and I both eating every last bite and I can only hope the same for you.
Cups of fresh vegetables are stir-fried in a wok with rice and covered in a homemade Thai Red Chili Hot Sauce, served with cucumber slices on the side. "Gin khao yung" - Have you eaten yet? :)
This recipe is almost exactly like the Thai Chili Lime Vegetable Stir Fry with Rice, the only difference is how it is prepared and presented. I like to make the Thai Chili Lime Vegetable Stir Fry and follow up with the Kao Pad Thai Fried Rice the following day.

Best wishes for a wonderful new vibrant week!
Poblano chili peppers, a vibrant orange bell pepper, and big onion slices are broiled and served over steaming hot rice with garbanzo beans. We served ours with Abba's African Hot Sauce from the Vegan World Fusion Cuisine cookbook, a spicy favorite of ours and cherished cookbook in our home. We had corn tortillas on the side too for a fun meal.
I love the aroma and flavor of broiled peppers, they come to life in the oven making each bite exciting and flavorful! I hope you enjoy these Pobalano Chili Bowls! This was enjoyed by a fan - Melissa says: "Yummy! Healthy! Simple! Delicious!"

Couscous, onions, garlic and lentils. It doesn't get much easier than that! This recipe was designed for a happy, healthy digestive system in mind. We are running low on our weekly supply of produce and I like to try to use up the last bits of what we have on hand. It forces me into creativity and in turn, we get to try a new meal that would otherwise be overlooked with papas fritas and guacamole, one of our favorites! :)
This meal is simple, delicious and nutritious. Three things I love! It is versatile with room for your own creativity and may be enjoyed as one complete meal or a side dish. I made the lentils in a rice cooker, poured boiling water over couscous, covered it and proceeded to saute some onions and garlic in lime juice. Once the lentils were done, I mixed it all together and served it with Braggs Liquid Amino's (similar to Soy Sauce) along with Sriracha Sauce. If you are ever constipated or having problems in that department, eat some lentils! I swear they are magical at cleansing your body. For me, they work every single time, and it is my hope you have the same results. :)

Place ingredients in a rice cooker, stir, press cook. Proceed to make the couscous and onion mixture.
Mix the couscous and seasoning in a pot. Pour the boiling hot water over the couscous. Allow to sit for 10 minutes covered, I had ours sit longer until the lentils were done. Fluff before serving.
Onions and Garlic in Lime Juice:
In a cast iron skillet (or preferred skillet) add freshly squeezed lime juice. Turn the heat on medium, add the chopped onions and minced garlic. Saute for about 5 minutes until fragrant. Cover and set aside until the lentils are done. Once the lentils are done, fluff the couscous, add it to the skillet along with the lentils. Stir to combine. Serve with Bragg's Liquid Amino's, Soy or Tamari Sauce and add Sriracha or hot sauce if inclined.
Today I whipped up a quick and easy meal. I made it up as I went along adding a little of this and a dash of that. Sometimes, the easiest meals turn out to be some of the tastiest. My husband asked if I wrote it down, he was a huge fan! There is nothing like making a delicious meal with love for your loved ones and them rewarding you with an empty bowl. The icing on the cake is when they go back for more, then you know you did well! This is white rice, infused with broccoli, garlic, celery with an Asian flare. You chop the vegetables, combine the ingredients in a rice cooker and press cook. Then you are free to do as you wish, while dinner is prepared in an efficient manner. We decided to take a walk, when we returned steaming hot dinner was awaiting. Not bad if you ask me! The flavors from the garlic and ginger with a dash of sweet and spice make an irresistible meal or side, bound to be made again and again! Bon appétit!

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a happy, healthy and fun holiday weekend! What did you do? We did projects around the home, shared some of our amazing structural integration with one another, ate some good food, read some good books, did some yoga and watched one crappy movie haha.
It can be hard to get back into the swing of things and sometimes you just want to make a simple dinner. I have just the solution for tonight! It will take minimal effort and hopefully hit the spot.
Grab some rice and place it in your rice cooker, add homemade beans, or canned. Top with homemade guacamole and surround by chips. Sprinkle some red pepper flakes on top and wallah! Dinner is done. I love a bowl filled with healthy, delicious ingredients and chips to dip them out with! Yummy!
Easy as 1, 2, 3!
This recipe is quick and very simple to put together. It contains ½ cup of brown rice surrounded by a bed of hot spicy salsa! Opt to enjoy this meal with a green smoothie packed with spinach and boosted with spirulina for added protein, we did! Or combine beans for added protein! Best part? This meal is cleanse-worthy and can be enjoyed as a part of the 30-Day Cleanse!
Tomatoes, onions, garlic, cilantro, serrano peppers, and lime are combined together to make a tasty sensation! It allows one to enjoy raw vegetables in one of their finest arrangements, my favorite – salsa!!! Enjoy with rice so no soy sauce or other sauces are needed!!
