Grain Free Tortilla Crepe Wrap Recipe & Meal Ideas


I’ve tried quite a few grain free tortilla/wrap/crepe recipes, which have given me a good lesson in how to develop my own. This one is great tasting and holds up when trying to eat as a wrap with your hands, but also works just fine with fork and knife. The recipe can be tailored for sweet or savory dishes by making any kind of tweaks you’d like, whether that would be to add vanilla extract, stevia, chives or some minced herbs into the batter.

After many years of knowing the magical nutrient powerhouse that is kale, I am happy to report: there are several ways that I really enjoy eating it; one of which is this salad.

There are two main factors in creating successful (raw) kale salad consumption for me:

Lemon Mug Cake

(null)This recipe has been inspired by another one, so I am giving¬†credit where it is due to Laura Epps’ Paleo in Comparison¬†for my inspiration. I made a few tweaks based on my ingredients and taste preferences. It’s a deliciously moist cake; yum! Here is the original recipe: Coconut Lime Mug Cake.

Not a usual thing for me, but I had this for lunch the other day with some veggies (Carrot sticks and Cauliflower hummus). I was craving carbs and found this recipe, which is compliant with my current sugar detox plan. It includes real food ingredients, feels like decadence, yet isn’t an insane splurge, so it was perfect! (more…)


Sweet Potato Apple Crunch
