As they say, there’s more than one way to skin a cat. Oh dear! That’s actually a horrible analogy, but what it means is that there is more than one way of doing something or achieving a goal. In this instant, the goal is to have gluten free apple bread. Well, rather than making homemade bread containing apples, here, I added bread cubes, apples, and other ingredients to form an apple bread bake. You can use homemade or store-bought gluten free bread. Just be sure to use one that is absorbent. Drizzle or drown it in additional pure maple syrup for a luscious brunch dessert.

Atkin shakes do not contain any gluten (wheat, rye or barley). They do, however, contain cross-contamination of gluten from their factory. Therefore, they are not labeled gluten free. This led me to develop a gluten free atkins shake recipe that is also dairy and soy-free. I hope you find it helpful. I included the carb ccount on the right side of each ingredient that contains carbs. Atkins shakes cost $7.89 per 4 count. This recipe contains 2.25 carbs. Atkins vanilla shake contains 1 carb and the chocolate, 2 carbs. So, you’ll definitely save money making your own, but you obviously will consume more carbs. They are both 11 ounces.
This recipe is also free of carrageenan and artificial flavoring, which Atkins shakes contain. The below recipe is vanilla and pumpkin-spiced flavored. You can flavor it as you see fit. Just be sure to add carbs where appropriate such as 2 grams for 1 Tablespoon of cocoa powder, which is not allowed during the induction phase. As is, this recipe is allowed during the induction phase as well as throughout the diet.
Note: Many sugar-free substitutes contain carbohydrates. I use stevia, which is much healthier than cancer causing artificial sweeteners. Plus the variety I use does not any carbs at all.
Important: A high protein diet such as the Atkins Diet causes a diuretic effect on the body. While you lose water, you are also losing important minerals such as calcium. If you are not consuming dairy on the Atkins diet, be sure to take calcium supplements.* You can lose about 1.75 milligrams of calcium through water loss for each gram of animal protein ingested.
Being allergic to pumpkin, I reach for carrots or butternut squash during the fall. This carrot cake is decorated with meringue ghosts to celebrate Halloween. I used my raved about gluten free carrot cake recipe with cream cheese frosting, but I did not frost the sides. Enjoy and happy upcoming Halloween to you!

In an attempt to create gluten free popovers, my third batch turned out like dinner rolls instead, but I thoroughly enjoyed them. So, I altered the recipe a little more to remove the creaminess to create these delicious poppers. They are yeast and leaven-free as the eggs alone act as a leavener. I hope you enjoy them.

While watching Rachael Ray last week, I heard that Tavern On Third, a sports bar in New York, serves a deep fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It’s one of the specials during sports games. However, it’s not gluten free. They did not share their recipe, but I got right on it and created a gluten free version for you. Continue reading “Gluten Free Grilled or Deep Fried PB&J”
