Last post, I blogged about my learning curve regarding aging and pain. Since then I found few recipes online that are lectin-free. I surmise that the Keto craze prevails among the masses.

One thing I did do was carry a copy of lectin-free foods (link is in my last post) and below are some snaps of my quick, easy, fast lectin-free meals. If you are interested in the topic of leaky gut syndrome, follow along. Even if you are from Keto Land, you may learn something.

One skillet meal: Since I cook for one, this example I consume at 2 PM and vary the contents. Contents: Quorn sautéed with organic veggie broth, romaine, Red Garnet sweet potato (pre-baked) and topped with goat cheese, avocado, and aminos. I roast 2-3 Red Garnets ahead of time and keep in the fridge sans skins. One skillet-toasted almond tortilla is always a side for crunch. For dessert I have a piece of organic, fair trade dark chocolate.
If you have not tried Red Garnet sweet potatoes, you are missing out. This variety is the only one I consume. Found at WF and always organic, this potato is so sweet and tender, it needs nothing else. Just roast the scrubbed potatoes on a sheet pan until baby-bottom tender…about 40 minutes at 375F.
In this dish, I have Quorn on the bottom, a large handful of organic cole slaw mix, sliced fennel and radishes that were steamed until tender. Then topped with sweet potato, avocado, goat cheese, and hemp seeds if you like them.
This was a breakfast: Two scrambled organic/free range eggs, sweet potato, pistachio and macadamia nuts, artichoke hearts, and one toasted almond flour tortilla. Not pictured is half-cup of organic blueberries topped with 2 T. of heavy cream. My favorite morning beverage is double-strength organic Rooibos tea with a splash of organic 1/2 & 1/2.

Breakfast always includes two eggs. Thanks to all the hard-working chickens out there. Sometimes I have a wee slice of organic/free range chicken thigh that I roast and shred like pulled pork. Roast the chicken with herbs and spices of choice…I like cumin and chile powder. Perhaps a grab of nuts, and frequently an opened capsule of Host Defense Mushrooms, Comprehensive Immune Support by Fungi Perfecti, LLC. top the eggs.

I am happy to report that this way of eating is melting belly fat. Less weight on my cranky hips is always a good thing. Yes? And I always end my shower with cold water. Ah, refreshing.

Some readers may wonder why I do not mention fish. On occasion I do eat boiled, wild caught shrimp, but rarely. Deeply distressed about the state of our planet’s oceans, I sadly consider oceans a cesspool, filling daily with human contaminates. Perhaps in the highlands of Scotland, the rivers run pure and the wild-caught fish are pristine. Alas. I do drink The Botanist gin. 😉

As I continue my life’s journey, I research and remain curious. One thing both my health care team and I agree on is: I want to continue my life doing the things that I love. Caring for my gardens, where I host toads, skinks, and wild birds, nurturing my creativity, and remaining independent all remain paramount.
