Roasted Sweet Potato Tacos (V, GF)

I’ve began to get Misfit Market veggies and fruits during the Quarantine. It was easier to make sure I had fresh veggies and fruit. This past week I received about 6 sweet potatoes, so I decided to make a roasted sweet potato taco for lunch. If you want to make this Gluten-Free, you can use corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas. It’s your choice which type of tortilla you want to use for your taco. This recipe is easily vegan if you don’t use any cheese or sour cream on the taco. Instead use avocado for the creaminess of cheese … Continue reading Roasted Sweet Potato Tacos (V, GF)

Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas While on a Road Trip

Today I’m going to share two gluten free breakfast ideas on this blog and then two more on Believe in the Magic Traci’s Diary for a total of four ideas. Since going gluten free, it’s difficult for me to find breakfast foods that are gluten free even though some hotels offer free breakfast.  Typically those free breakfasts have waffles, cereals, and pastries with limited amounts of fruit.  Sometimes there is yogurt provided also. I’m primarily gluten free and dairy free/ lactose free so that makes it more difficult.  (I do eat some dairy.) All of these are for road trips … Continue reading Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas While on a Road Trip

Nectarine Mint Green Iced Tea

I love unsweetened ice tea. Many times grocery stores will only offer unflavored unsweetened ice tea. While it’s delicious, there are times that I want something different. This recipe combines making basic ice tea and infusing water with fruit and herbs which creates a refreshing drink. I’ve included adding sugar or honey in the directions. If you are like me or on the Whole30, you can certainly omit the sugar or honey. Enjoy your refreshing drink while reading a good book, Traci Continue reading Nectarine Mint Green Iced Tea
