and the Art of Eating Healthy
Wheat-free nutrition champion, Maria
Emmerich, has just released a new book:
The Art of Eating Healthy–Kids;
Grain Free Low Carb Reinvented.
It is a masterpiece!
If I wanted a beautifully illustrated, easy-to-read book,
packed solid with useful health and cooking tips that
accompanies the Wheat Belly message, this would
be it. While Maria’s book does indeed focus on
recipes suited for kids, nearly all the recipes are
useful/adaptable to Big Kids like your husband, too.
Among the recipes she provides:
Protein Granola Bars
Maria allowed me to reproduce her
“Healthified” Cinnamon Bagel recipe here.
¼ cup coconut oil or butter, melted
¼ cup coconut flour
¼ cup unflavored whey protein
½ tsp Celtic sea salt
1 tsp aluminum free baking powder
OPTIONAL: 1 tsp guar gum or xanthan gum
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Blend together eggs, coconut
oil/butter, salt, and spices if using.
In a separate bowl, mix
coconut and whey with baking powder and guar gum.
Blend the dry mixture into the wet until smooth.
Grease a donut pan with coconut
oil spray. Bake for 15 minutes. Makes 6 bagels.
“EVERYTHING” Bagel: add
½ tsp dill,
½ tsp dried chives
½ tsp dried parsley,
½ tsp onion powder,
¼ tsp garlic,
2 TBS parmesan cheese
Onion bagel: add 1 tsp dried onion flakes
Cinnamon: add 2 tsp cinnamon,
1 tsp stevia glycerite and
1 tsp vanilla (and use
vanilla whey instead of unflavored)
