Honor your mothers and grandmothers by creating a nourishing meal with whole food ingredients this Mother's Day. Whether you are cooking breakfast in bed, brunch, or a family dinner, I have some healthy gluten-free recipes to inspire you on this special day. My children have often brought me a homemade breakfast in bed, complete with fresh squeezed orange juice mixed with sparkling mineral water. They usually don't let me get out of bed until they bring up the breakfast they have made!

Below are a few nourishing, gluten-free recipes from the blog and our membership section! 

Gluten-Free Mother's Day Recipes From The Blog:

Asparagus, Mushroom, and Leek Frittata

Serve this nourishing frittata with an arugula and strawberry salad. I like to make a quick dressing using equal parts of freshly squeezed lemon juice and olive oil, plus a few cloves of crushed garlic, and some freshly ground black pepper and sea salt to season it. If you tolerate dairy products then I would suggest adding in a sharp flavored cheese such as gruyere, or a raw sharp cheddar.

Grain-Free Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Cake

Grain-Free Lemon Poppyseed Cake

This cake is delicious served with sliced fresh organic strawberries and freshly whipped coconut cream (or whipped organic heavy cream if you tolerate dairy). You can also bake this cake in two 9-inch round cake pans and create a layered cake if desired. If you plan on serving the cake with breakfast or brunch then make it the night before. The texture of this cake actually improves the next day!

Gluten-Free Bagels

I like a to make a few batches of this gluten-free and xanthan gum-free bagel recipe at a time so some can go into the freezer. My children love to make sandwiches out of them....such as turkey-lettuce-mustard-raw cheese for their school lunches, or a fried egg and avocado sandwich for breakfast! Once the bagels are baked and completely cool you can slice them in half and freeze for later use. To reheat, simply toast your frozen bagel halves in the oven or a toaster.

Gluten-Free + Egg-Free Lemon Blueberry Scones

Serve these gluten-free, vegan scones with mint tea for an afternoon treat! If you want extra lemon flavor then add about ½ to 1 teaspoon organic lemon flavoring. For the non-dairy milk, I usually use coconut milk or almond milk.  The blueberries can be replaced with any type of berry. Try blackberry, chopped strawberries, marionberry, or blueberries. I've also tested this recipe using diced (very small) Granny Smith apples with added cinnamon!

SHEET PAN SALMON FENNEL SWEET ONIONS-1

Sheet Pan Salmon with Fennel and Sweet Onions

This quick and easy salmon recipe can be served with a simple green salad and your favorite dressing for a nourishing, anti-inflammatory meal. Be sure your sheet pan is large enough to accommodate the ingredients in this recipe. If you use a smaller pan the veggies may turn a bit watery instead of cooking and slightly caramelizing.

KOHLRABI FENNEL AND CITRUS SLAW-1

Kohlrabi, Fennel, and Citrus Slaw

Kohlrabi is a cruciferous vegetable with a delectable, light flavor. I prefer to eat it raw in salads or slaws, or sliced into rounds and used as a "chip" for dips! Kohlrabi has a fibrous peel that is best removed before using. I usually use a sharp paring knife to remove the peel. Serve this light and flavorful kohlrabi and fennel salad for a springtime brunch with poached eggs and grain-free biscuits for a nourishing meal.

CHOCOLATE BUCKWHEAT LAYER CAKE-4

Buckwheat Chocolate Cake (Gluten-Free + Egg-Free + Dairy-Free)

I absolutely love baking with buckwheat flour. It has a robust, earthy flavor and impressive nutritional profile. Paired with a high-quality raw cacao powder and extra virgin olive oil, you get a phytonutrient-rich healing dessert! Both buckwheat flour and cacao powder are rich sources of flavonoids and polyphenols. These compounds have numerous beneficial impacts on different systems in the body. Did you know that polyphenols interact with the gut microbiota and act as prebiotics for beneficial bacteria?

Simple Baked Fish and Local Veggies

The phrase "Be a Yocal, Buy Local" still rings in my head from my Bozeman, Montana days. Yes I used to live there and loved it! The co-op there had stickers with the above phrase that I had plastered on my Nalgene water bottle. (No, I do not use a Nalgene bottle anymore....stainless steel for us now!).
