Looking for both some good smoothy/juicing recipes as well as gluten free (as well as soy and nut free) recipe sources.
Recommended gluten free and/or smoothy recipe sources?

i noticed a couple recipes on the main page of this site that might fit your dietary needs...
are you able to consume greek yogurt? you could always use the plain no/low fat variety as a protein base for any fruit/veg smoothie
Posted 04 June 2013 - 03:52 PM
um, yea...after reading through one recipe that claims to be nut free actually uses almond milk soooooo....
maybe you can replace these nut & soy "milks" with coconut milk?

Greek yogurt is a go. Almond milk, bad. Although not allergic to coconut I do not like the taste. Perhaps rice milk would be a suitable substitute?

right, i do remember that avocados are a no.
rice milk should work...not sure if it has much in the way of protein, fiber, vitamins. maybe stick with the greek yogurt (if you're looking for protein & calcium source)

Have you tried any of these? Some look rather appealing.
no , i only make some basic ones in the office, depending on what the farmers market has on my way into work.
typically frozen ripe fruit + yougurt, maybe some jam / preserves and a mini moo or 2 if it's too thick
strawberries now; blueberries, raspberries later,
i have no medical food resrtictions that i know of - got lucky on that one.

are you allergic to hemp? I find that I like that 'milk' the best
As for gluten free...let's talk! I have a ton of recipes!
you can make a lot of 'regular' recipes gluten free, but replacing the pasta they use w the tikiyanda or bionature...or ancient harvest in them
what are you looking for main dishes, side dishes?
Spiral Meat Loaf
1 Cup Water
2 Cup Kale (washed,stemmed, chopped)
2 Cup Spinach, chopped
1 1/4 llb. buffalo or grass fed beef
1/2 Cup finely minced Onions
1 Large Garlic clove minced
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
20 grinds black pepper
1 tsp minced fresh Rosemary
1/2 Cup crumbled bread (Udi's Gluten Free bread is awesome!)
1 TB dijon mustard
1/2 tsp maple syrup or honey
Preheat oven to 350° In medium skillet with lid, bring water to boil. Add chopped kale and cook for 3 minutes. Add chopped spinach and continue to cook until greens have wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove greens from water, drain & cool slightly. Drink liquid for minerals & vitamins. When greens have cooled enough to handle, squeeze out any excess moisture. Set aside.
Place meat, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, rosemary, and crumbled bread in medium sized bowl. Mix well with your hands. Press mixture into a flattened 12x10 inch rectangle, about 1/2 inch thick, on a cookie sheet, clean countertop or parchment paper.
Distribute the cooked greens evenly over the meat rectangle. Roll up, starting with the 10 inch side, into a jelly roll shape. Place into shallow baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine mustard and sweetener. Spread this mixture on top of the meatloaf. Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes, or until cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes before slicing into 3/4 inch-thick pieces.

Herb Roasted Onion
2 red onions
1 yellow onion
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 tablespoon minced fresh thyme leaves
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup good olive oil
1/2 tablespoon minced fresh parsley leaves
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Remove the stem end of each onion and carefully slice off the brown part of the root end, leaving the root intact. Peel the onion. Stand each onion root end up on a cutting board and cut the onion in wedges through the root. Place the wedges in a bowl.
For the dressing, combine the lemon juice, mustard, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Pour the dressing over the onions and toss well.
With a slotted spoon, transfer the onions to a sheet pan, reserving the vinaigrette that remains in the bowl. Bake the onions for 30 to 45 minutes, until tender and browned. Toss the onions once during cooking. Remove from the oven, and drizzle with the reserved dressing. Sprinkle with parsley, season to taste and serve warm or at room temperature.

4 large bell peppers
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 cup black beans
½ cup salsa
½ cup corn (fresh or thawed frozen from freezer)
Sautéed veggies of your choice (zucchini, onion, mushrooms, carrots, broccoli)
Cumin, salt and pepper to taste
1. Cook quinoa. Saute your favorite chopped fresh veggies in olive oil with fresh mince garlic. Add salt, pepper and cumin to taste. Rinse black beans and set aside.
2. Cut peppers in half, lengthwise. Try to leave the stem intact so the filling doesn’t fall out and remove inside and seeds. In a large bowl, mix quinoa, salsa, black beans, corn and sautéed veggies. Taste, and add more salsa if you like.
3. Stuff peppers with quinoa/black bean mix. Place stuffed peppers in a glass baking pan with a ½ inch to 1 inch of water in the bottom, and cover with foil. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 10 minutes to brown/melt the cheese.
