Email Alert & Veggie Eggie Bake! GF, BED, SCD & Vegan Option!

Hey Hey Happy Tummies! So glad to see you here!
EMAIL ALERT! So I heard all of your concerns about no longer receiving email notifications of blog posts once the switch happens.
SO - I have 2 alternatives for you:)
1. You are able to sign up to get my posts appear on your Google/Yahoo homepage, OR you can add it to your Google Reader. You can do that in the "subscribe" section on the right hand side of the new site.
2. You can message me your email address! I'm going to create a big "GFHT Email Group" and I will manually send you an email with my new posts! BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!! :D
Yay! I'm really excited about that 2nd option. You see, I called my dad yesterday, and explained to him how bummed I was that my email-readers would no longer have that option, and he came up with the brilliant idea of the email group! So thanks Dad!
Now, onto the food!
This month, I'm taking a class that meets every night between the hours of 5:30 and 9. Sooo, that makes cooking a bit impossible. SOOOO, my theme this month is MAKE AHEAD WONDERS!!
Tonight's dinner was a Veggie Eggie Scramble! A super easy, "bake it and forget it" meal that'll be waiting for you when you get home!
And no worries, my Vegan lovies! This can be made vegan by subbing crumbled tofu or tempeh, or rice for the egg whites!
And it's gluten free, Body Ecology and Specific Carb Diet friendly with a Vegan Option!
Here's what you need:
3 egg whites, beaten
healthy pinch salt and pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 zucchini, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup spinach, chopped
1 cup broccoli, steamed
garnish: green onion or chives, chopped
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Start by steaming your broccoli. I do this by placing my frozen broccoli florets in a pyrex measuring cup, and microwaving for 1-2 minutes! (That's the super fast/easy/no clean up way!) Drain the excess water and pat dry.
Take a small baking dish and line with parchment paper. (This makes it easier to take out after if cooks). Whisk your egg whites until frothy in a medium sized bowl. Add your spices and whisk again. Stir in your veggies. Pour into your parchment-lined baking dish and bake for 40 minutes. Serve garnished with chopped green onion or chives!
This couldn't be easier for a make ahead meal! I literally just make this before I leave, and leave it in the oven (which is turned off) until I get home!
It may not be the "fanciest" of recipes, but sometimes, you just need a meal that'll fill you up and is easy to make. Let me tell ya, the LAST thing I want to do when I get home at 9:30 is cook! So this is a great alternative!
And it is so delicious! You've seen this combination of flavors before...but that's because it's my favorite! The spicy chili powder with the warm cumin is fabulous with the sweet bell pepper and yummy broccoli.
It's a nutritional powerhouse of a meal too! Chock full of veggies and unadulterated protein!
What's your favorite "make ahead meal?"

For the chopping and dicing in this recipe, a good knife is crucial. In fact, a good chef's knife is one of my kitchen essentials. They say a dull knife is the most dangerous tool in the kitchen! It is so true! A good knife is an investment, but it really takes your cooking to another level, and makes the prep work SO much easier! It actually makes chopping enjoyable! Here's the knife I use:


  1. Hey girl! I just wanted you to know that I have a blog on blogger - and you CAN have them follow you by email....there is a widget that you can add to your sidebar, and your readers would put in their email address and be notified every time you post!

    1. Hi Jayme! Thank you for this great tip. Unfortunately, I have tried that widget, and Feedburner rejected my blog because it "exceeded the file size." Major bummer. But thanks for the heads up!

  2. Oh my Gosh! Here I am trying to find your comment to me regarding Feedburner, so that I can show my girlfriend (for some odd reason, I can't find it) so I go here and I find my best friend from Indiana leaving you a message about the very same thing I shared with you. I can't TELL you what a trip that was to see her face and title. MY Jayme. No way. Because I had just shared your blog with her last week. I just knew she would be over-the-top ecstatic over your recipes. :) By the way, made the Crispy Potato Pepper Pile again for tonight's dinner. That dish is just too good! :)

    1. oh my gosh how funny!! small world! -both "blog world," and real world!! haha And Yay! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! You just made my day!! Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Hey there!
    Just wanted to remind you how fantastic your blog is, and so proud of you for sticking to your guns with amazing healthy food! I believe I am one/two years younger than you and very interested in the similar things in regards to nutrition and relishing spectacular food!
    I woke up this morning and was wanting to try one of your amazing breakfasts (the sweet and savoury crepes) and your website tells me that the page doesn’t exist :( I tried it with a few other recipes too-and they aren’t popping up either! Best wishes for fixing this soon, I know there are so many people out there who need your advice and creativity to eat wholesome food!!!
    Best wishes, Health and Happiness,

    1. Hey Vanessa! Gosh, thank you so much! That really means a lot :) And thank you for the heads up! At this very minute, I'm updating all the links on my recipe index. I apologize that they didn't "make the switch." About half are done right now, and I made sure to do the crepes for ya, so if you check back, the link will work. Have a fabulous weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I like the new layout! Looks great! Another great recipe too! :)

    1. Thank you so much Alaine!! Glad you stopped by! Have a great day!

  5. Hi!

    I'm having the same problem where the links are not working. I really want to try the carrot pudding recipe! Sounds delicious!

    I'm a recent follower of yours, but I have to say that every single recipe I have tried has been outstanding! Even my toddler loves your food! I tried the Mexican Broccoli Soup today and fell in love! It was like a flavor explosion! Thank you for bringing yummy flavors back into my cooking! Eating gluten-free, vegan, and GMO-free has been a true challenge, but you have made eating fun again! I can't thank you enough!

    Looking forward to trying the carrot pudding! Yum!

    1. Hi! Oh yay! I'm so glad you're enjoying my recipes! I apologize that the links didn't make the switch. At this very minute, I'm updating all the links in my "recipes" index. About half are updated, and I made sure to do the carrot pudding for ya, so if you try again, it should work:) Thanks for stopping by! Happy cooking!!! :)
