I highly recommend this food dehydrator.  It is by far the best and a must have for healthy eating.  Most dehydrated foods are full of nitrates and other unsavory ingredients.  The Excalibur makes fantastic food and has a fabulous warranty.
  • Banana Chips (make sure they are very ripe - tastes like candy)
  • Apple Chips (try with cinnamon on top)
  • Fruit Leather (try using apple sauce)
  • Dog Treats (sweet potato, meat, etc)
  • Jerky (beef, venison, etc.)
  • Vegetable Spices (dry your veggies & put in a food processor)
  • Rising Bread
  • The options are endless

  • 2-3 tbsp blend of (hemp hearts, bee pollen, chia (ground), buckwheat (ground), flax (ground)

Amaranth & Quinoa Flat Bread & Stir Fry Wraps

May 28, 2013
Wow, I didn't know how these would turn out, but they are really good.  Great texture, they roll well, and they're yummy.

A friend said that she had a lot of trouble finding a good flat bread recipe that was gluten free, so I was surprised when these turned out so well the first try.  I guess I'm getting good at making elimination diet recipes.

So, when I made this, I didn't have amaranth flour, so I ground up amaranth seeds in a coffee grinder (actually, I'm lying, I used my Cuisinart Magic Bu...

Sweet Potato Fries

May 24, 2013
These are sooo good and pretty easy.  My super fussy 3 year old even loved them.  So did my hubby.  Only the 6 year old wasn't a fan.

Here's how it's done.

Sweet Potato Fries

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F
  • Peel a big sweet potato
  • Cut into 1/2" strips
  • Separately, mix 1/4 c olive oil, 1 tsp sea salt, 1/4 tsp pepper
  • Lightly coat the sweet potatoes in the olive oil mix
  • Place sweet potatoes on a non stick cookie sheet, making sure that they are not touching
  • Cook for 15 mins, flip, cook for another 10 mins.

Apple Chips & Leather - Just Apples & Cinnamon

May 22, 2013
These make such a great snack and are great for people with dietary limitations and those on an Elimination Diet.  Plus, my kids love them.

I recommend using the Excalibur Food Dehydrator.  It's by far the best dehydrator I have ever used.  It dries your food evenly and I don't even have to turn my food (maybe the odd thing, but usually not).  We usually make apple chips, banana chips, beef jerky, fruit leather, dog treats, and I'm really looking forward to making crackers and beet and sweet p...
