This has almost happened to me a few times 😂 believe me I don’t love to avoid so many foods but I truly don’t have a choice. I’ve cheated a few times the past 8 years and it’s put me down for days. I currently avoid eggs, dairy, soy, nuts and gluten. I’m praying I can heal and be able to eat a more balanced diet iA! Does anyone else out there have avoidances or allergies? #foodallergies #foodintolerance #leakygut #healing


I’m excited to share that the carrot cake I was working on turned out great 🥕 Here’s the recipe for the cake. I chose a traditional cream cheese frosting but I only used grass fed butter, organic cultured cream cheese (the last picture) and raw honey. Feel free to play around with a frosting you enjoy.
Gluten-Free Carrot Cake
2 cups gluten free all-purpose flour
1/3 cup buckwheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon all spice
1/2 cup monk fruit sugar
1/2 cup coconut brown sugar
3/4 cup aquafaba,the liquid in a can of chickpeas
¾ cup spectrum non-hydrogenated organic coconut shortening, melted
1 cup mashed, ripe banana
4 cups shredded carrots

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter, flour and line two 8-inch cake pans with parchment paper and set aside.
Whisk together the all-purpose flour, buckwheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together both sugars and the aquafaba. Stream in the oil and mix until combined.  Stir in the mashed banana.
Working in two batches, gently stir in the dry ingredients.
Lastly, fold in the shredded carrots until combined.
Evenly divide the batter between the prepared pans.  Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes come out clean.  Cool on a wire rack for about 20 minutes before removing the cakes from their pans. Allow cakes to completely cool before filling and frosting.

I just love this thoughtful gift from a dear friend 💕 It is a reminder of the beautiful Hadith, Anas ibn Malik reported: A man said, “O Messenger of Allah, should I tie my camel and trust in Allah, or should I leave her untied and trust in Allah?” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Tie her and trust in Allah.”
This knowledge has helped me in many circumstances in my life and now this tea mug will remind me the blessings of knowing this❤️ #islam #sunnah #friendship #gratitude #tieyourcamelandtrust

I just can’t get enough of this view. It’s telling me that I need more natural settings in my day to day. It’s like taking a sip of water and not realizing how thirsty you were.

I could sit here all day and just breathe♥️

This roasted cauliflower head with beet tahini sauce and herbs was worth eating. I’ve never been picky with food but lately eating out has been lots of misses. #eatingout #keepitsimple #vegetablefood #nolablesneeded
