When on the go we are usually a burgers-first family. It's the thing we all like and can eat easily, but today we remembered @jimmyjohns on the way home and immediately (because it's "freaky fast" as Finn reminded me ), I was like "I forgot how good this is!" Their unwich is just veggies and meat wrapped in lettuce and you can customize almost anything you want. And, frankly, way easier to eat than a bunless burger! Just beware the tuna, last time I checked it wasn't GF.

My Greek Lamb Strips for Souvlaki sizzled on my @space_grill.
I made a Greek Salad, home made Tzatziki dip, pita bread and served these beauties!

Fantastic dinner. Pork chop from @johnsonfamilypastures, stove top applesauce from Baker Orchard apples, and #glutenfree spaetzle ....oh and broccoli because veggies are important. But dang. #knowyourfarmer and you too can eat amazing amazing food.
Mediterranean pizza on homemade naan (and it’s grain free!) I hope your Sunday was full of good eats + lots of love from friends/family.
Recipe below: (Servings : 2 small flatbreads)
To make naan “crust”:
▸ Mix ½ cup almond flour + ½ tapioca flour + 1 cup coconut milk + dash salt in a medium-sized bowl
▸ Heat a nonstick pan or griddle over medium heat—drizzle olive oil to prevent sticking
▸ Pour 1/2 batter into pan— heat until firm; flip and cook other side (takes ~10 min. each side); repeat with remaining batter
To make pizza:
▸ Preheat oven to 400 F
▸ Place crust onto pizza pan
▸ Spread garlic hummus evenly over crust
▸ Top with arugula + cherry tomatoes + artichoke hearts (I just use organic canned) + kalamata olives + almond or feta cheese (I used @kitehillfoods )
▸ Drizzle with balsamic vinegar + olive oil
▸ Season with salt + pepper + dried basil if desired ▸ Bake for 15-20 minutes, then broil for final 5 minutes for crispy edges
▸ Serve and enjoy!
The other night I made a batch of Crockpot Gumbo! I’m a big fan of the slow cooker, if you haven’t already noticed , mostly because it can be a lifesaver when I know I’ll be getting home late and won’t want to cook dinner but don’t want to go out to eat. This gumbo(recipe) is one is one of my favorites and is loaded with flavor from a mix of Cajun spices(link in bio). You can use chicken or shrimp or whatever combination you like but I just stuck to the basic @pedersonsfarms smoked sausage. I served mine with a big helping of sautéed cauliflower rice and enjoyed my stress-free meal once I got home!
