This year one of the things that I have to give thanks for is Karina. For those of you who don' t know Karina is the Gluten Free Goddess, whose recipes and wisdom I worship on a daily basis.
I have been living Gluten Free (GF) for a while - maybe 15 years or so - that means that I don't eat anything with Wheat, Rye or Barley in it (added oats back into my diet and that seems to be ok). I recently visited a naturopath to see if there was anything I could do to relieve my sinus pain and seemingly chronic skin rashes. I had some blood tests and while it showed that I have the cholesterol of a 20 year old track star - thank you McDonald's for not making a Gluten Free hamburger - it also showed that I have some other food issues. Now, in addition to the GF living, I live egg, dairy, cane sugar, tomato, zucchini, bell pepper, almond, sesame, blueberry, pineapple and banana free - that wasn't quite the list I was hoping for. Anyway, Karina has an even longer list and manages some how to remain a true inspiration when it comes to cooking and life with a 'list'. I would say that no less than 5 days a week are we eating well from one of her recipes. She makes it seem easy and fun and oh so tasty. So, if you're looking to try something different or have someone in your life that has a 'list', try Karina's Kitchen she will no doubt nourish your body and soul - Thank you Karina!
I'm a sucker for a good crumble so I just had to make some this morning.
The recipe is here - I made mine with 1/4 cup agave syrup, 1/3 cup of Lara's certified GF rolled oats and a little bit of vanilla rice milk to make up for brown sugar (cane sugar)
The cranberries are tart so I think that I could have gotten away with a little bit more agave but it's still really yummy.
