My Favorite Places to Find Gluten-Free Recipes

After years of eating gluten-free I have found some GREAT resources when it comes to finding tasty gluten-free recipes and meals.

I hope you will find these resources helpful, even if you don’t have to eat gluten-free I think you’ll enjoy it!

To watch my YouTube video on this look below:

1- Download the “Tasty” app! This app is so helpful and has so many gluten-free recipes. It shows ratings on how well people have liked the meal and the instructions are great and easy to follow.

You can also save your favorite recipes to come back to.

2- Get meal plans from :

http://www.sixsistersstuff.com

The best option is to buy them for a year which is only $48.00

The recipes are sent to you weekly via email.

It’s 6 days worth of dinner meals and each meal has the main meal, a side dish and dessert.

I printed my recipes off on paper and created my own cookbook with these meal plans and I use them frequently.

I love the Six Sister’s Stuff and think you will too!

3- Go to: https://cleanmondaymeals.com

This website has endless meal prep recipes and even better?! They are ALL gluten free!

The recipes on the website are tasty and easy to follow.

JaNae Cox is the founder of Clean Monday Meals and she has wonderful ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Check out her website, and she also has book options available for purchasing!

4- Don’t be scared to pull out those delicious family recipes books and replace regular flour with gluten free flour.

Sometimes it takes experimenting but it’s so rewarding to create that delicious meal you loved from grandma .. and make it gluten -free!

Create your own gluten-free recipes with just a bit of an adjustment

My favorite flours that are gluten free are: cup4cup, namaste, and better batter flour.

5- Pinterest!

You can find me on Pinterest “christyleepixx” and I have pinned a lot of great gluten-free recipes.

Even more, start finding some yummy gluten-free recipes and save them to your Pinterest page.

Pinterest app

Yes you may make some “Pinterest fails,” but it’s worth it to find some of those tasty “Pinterest wins.”

I hope this helps you find more gluten-free recipes!

The resources out there are wonderful these days and I’m so happy to see gluten-free friendly meals popping up all over now.

Why the 4th of July is important to me…

In college I majored in history.

I have always been fascinated with history.

For some reason, the Revolutionary War especially fascinated me.

One regret I have in college is not taking a Revolutionary War class because rumor was that it was “rare to get an A” from this professor, even though the class was amazing.

I don’t remember every discussion from my college history classes… but there was one that stood out about the Revolutionary War.

As a class we had a debate.

Our class created very detailed lists of advantages and disadvantages of the colonists/Patriots, and the advantages and disadvantage of the British/Redcoats.

There was no argument that the British/Redcoats really had all the more advantages:

-better equipped soldiers

-more money in every aspect

– Good weapons

-Good leaders

-Strong backing from England

And the list goes on…

And yet, the TWO advantages I remember discussing that granted the colonist victory over Britain was

#1- A greater knowledge of the land (fought on American soil)

#2- Perhaps the STRONGEST advantage was that the colonists’ “cause” was deeper and genuine—- FREEDOM.

That my friends trumps all.

The British had the desire to have the colonies for wealth and benefit to the country.

However, the fight for FREEDOM from hefty taxes and a king was a strong and dedicating factor.

So I ask you today if you’re American and if you’re reading this…. do we think of that “cause of Freedom” today?

Do we take it lightly that countless numbers of soldiers and loved ones have sacrificed their entire lives so we could live in this INCREDIBLE country?

I hope not.

I hope to teach my children not just about the history of the Revolutionary War and how the 4th of July came to be….

But how amazing it is to live in a country where we can feel blessed everyday that SO many people have remembered the “cause” of freedom and why it’s worth fighting for…. and with that have given up their lives for us to prosper in this country.

Let’s make it a goal to remember this everyday.

Not just one time a year, but everyday, all year.

God Bless America!

Getting organized with cleaning your house/Free cleaning calendar

I know what you’re thinking…it’s NOT “spring-cleaning” season.

However, if you are like me, sometimes through all the months of being inside, you feel like you have accumulated more items and it’s time to clean and dejunk!

I have a daily cleaning calendar I am sharing with you. I hope this calendar can motivate you to clean because I want it to motivate me to DEEP clean more. 

I always try to do the basics: dust, wipe down counters, vacuum etc.

It’s those other deep cleaning items that tend to slide by.

As a mother of three young children this calendar list WILL be a challenge.

And yet, my goal is to get my children involved and make it fun!! 

This month you will hear more and more “cleaning” related posts because that is my focus and priority.

My entire life I have found that trying to keep things tidy and orderly…brings me peace. 

Now is it possible to be absolutely clean all the time while your house if full of young children?

No.

BUT–is it important to teach those young children how to clean?

Yes!

In fact, I beg you to teach your children to clean…for their future college roommates, please teach them to clean!:)

No one needs to be obsessive about cleaning, but the skills and the mindset that come from cleaning, are great life skills. 

If you want to join me in prioritizing “Cleaning” for the month of July I would love to share this journey with you!
