When I first started eating a gluten-free diet, I was a little lost as to how to manage the diet. I met with a nutritionist in my doctor’s office, which helped me learn about what I could and couldn’t eat and what I should look at on food labels. However, I found it difficult to translate the list of dos and don’t into delicious, everyday eats. Since I was already familiar with the food blog scene at this point, I knew that there had to be some blogs out there dedicated to a eating a gluten-free diet.

As it turns out, I was right. One of the best gluten-free blogs that I have found is Elana’s Pantry. Elana’s recipes are beautiful, simple, and delicious. She often uses almond flour in her recipes which, as I’ve learned from her, is not only gluten-free but also nutritious, tasty, and easy-to-use. Soon after I discovered her blog, I ordered a bag of almond flour and The Gluten-free Almond Flour Cookbook. This turned out to be one of my best impulse buys of 2009.

Although I haven’t found a bad recipe in this book, my favorite and the one I make most often is the recipe for pancakes (you can find this recipe here). These pancakes aren’t “gluten-free good,” they’re simply delicious. And because the almond flour hasĀ  much more protein than white flour, these pancakes are much more filling and nutritious than typical pancakes.

To go with the pancakes, Andrew whipped up some fresh juice which included an orange, a lemon, a pear, a carrot, and Vita Coco coconut water

Fresh juice and pancakes, what a way to start the weekend!
