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

Amaranth & Quinoa Flat Bread & Stir Fry Wraps

Posted by Pam Timmermans on Tuesday, May 28, 2013, In : Recipes & Meal Ideas 
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

Posted by Pam Timmermans on Friday, May 24, 2013, In : Recipes & Meal Ideas 
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

Posted by Pam Timmermans on Wednesday, May 22, 2013, In : Recipes & Meal Ideas 
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...

Snack - Salmon Cakes

Posted by Pam Timmermans on Sunday, May 12, 2013, In : Recipes & Meal Ideas 
This is a decent snack.  I think I could take or leave the sunflower seed spread, but it does add more nutrition, so maybe try it with and without and see what suits you best.

Salmon Cakes

  • Brown Rice Cakes
  • Salmon (I used canned in water, look for no salt)
  • Dill Weed
  • Sea Salt
  • Sunflower Seed Spread

Top the rice cakes with a bit of sunflower seed spread, then salmon, dill, and sea salt to taste.  

I was thinking the recipe above would also be good if you finely chopped red onion and mixed it with the sal...

Posted by Pam Timmermans on Wednesday, May 8, 2013, In : Recipes & Meal Ideas 
Finally, a good supper.  I modified an old recipe and it turned out great!!!  Phew, after yesterday's catastrophe, I was a little worried.

Slow Cooked Apple Venison

Sweet Potato & Zucchini Bake

Posted by Pam Timmermans on Tuesday, May 7, 2013, In : Recipes & Meal Ideas 
I make this recipe quite often with what I'm sure is an MSG filled vegetable seasoning.  But it's so good.  I decided to try a new product today and it's quite spectacular.  It's called Herbamare and it's just a blend of herbs and natural sea salt.  It's quite healthy (except for the salt, but at least it's sea salt), it has no MSG, and it's delicious.


Sweet Potato and Zucchini Bake


  • 1 Sweet Potato (peel & cut 1/2" thick)
  • 1 Zucchini (cut 1/2" thick)
  • Olive Oil
  • Onion
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • Herbamare

Pour some...

The Ultimate Smoothie for the Elimination Dieter

Posted by Pam Timmermans on Monday, May 6, 2013, In : Recipes & Meal Ideas 

Unfortunately, many of my usual smoothie must haves are a no no, so I had to do some improvising.  I'm sad to see my bananas, pineapple, orange juice, and agave nectar leave the mix, but I am experimenting with some new things.

Usually, I am all about avocados, mangos, hemp hearts, ground flax, ground chia seeds, bee pollen, and of course my eliminated items :(  So, I added some blueberries, raspberries, and I even tried something green....kale.  Now I don't suggest overdoing it on the ...
