Recipes

The grain free recipes I create and share on Empowered Sustenance are created with anti-inflammatory ingredients and suitable for restricted diets. Some of these grain free recipes use creative techniques to healthily old favorites, such as my Butternut Squash Pizza Crusts.  Other recipes, like my Grain Free Flatbread, are unlike anything you’ve ever made before!

Empowered Sustenance recipes are: 

  • Grain free
  • Nut free and usually seed free
  • Dairy free or have dairy free option
  • Refined sugar free
  • Often suitable for the SCD/GAPS diet
  • Based on anti-inflammatory, real food ingredients
