If you’ve been with us this month so far, you know that we are grain-free for January. This is something we did last April and it both got my creative juices flowing AND helped me shed some extra pounds that I was hanging onto postpartum.
I have to tell you, my kids were not happy about the “no-bread” thing. What they don’t realize is that mommy can make “bread” with no grains! Once I convinced them of this, they were much more cooperative with our plan for the month.
I have the privilege of networking on a daily basis with some pretty incredible bloggers. We have a couple of Facebook groups where we chat daily about recipes and natural living. It’s been the main reason my blog has grown the way it has over the last few months. I couldn’t do this without them!
I tell you all that to tell you this. The flat bread recipe I’m using with this salmon (or tuna) salad on grain-free flat bread comes from two of the bloggers in that group and I am so excited to share it with you!
I first saw a recipe for grain-free naan from Ashley over at My Heart Beets. I bookmarked it! I then saw a grain-free flat bread recipe over from Hayley over at Health Starts in the Kitchen and knew I just had to try it. They are friends who live close enough to each other to do lunch. I’m so jealous!
You’ll have to click over to their sites which are both linked above to get the flat bread recipes in their entirety, but look around while you’re there! It’s worth it! You will LOVE their blogs! I spend a lot of time on both!
For the flat bread: For 6 servings, double the flat bread recipe. For 3 servings, make half the salmon salad recipe or just have lots of extra to eat on its own. 🙂
Any kind of salad like this is very forgiving. You can add or take away whatever you want and it will still turn out great. This recipe can be modified to your tastes and preferences. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
Please Note: You will need blanched almond flour and tapioca starch/flour for the flat bread.
Need a dairy-free mayo recipe? Try this coconut and avocado oil mayo recipe from Jessica at Delicious Obsessions. Yum!!!
This salmon salad was very enjoyable and the grain-free flat bread was slightly crisp on the outside and tender in the middle. It was perfect! I was asked to make it again tomorrow for lunch!
Be nourished. Be happy.

I don’t usually like radishes…but I love this radish and cucumber salad!
We’ve been getting quite a few radishes in our CSA produce boxes lately. If you are a radish fan, than this is not an issue. If you are not (like me), it can be difficult to know what to do with them. My mom introduced me to this amazing radish and cucumber salad, so I decided that if some of my readers had misgivings about radishes, I should share it!
Not only is this salad delicious, it is also chock full of nutrients that help detoxify and nourish the body.
Radishes are a very nutrient dense food, rich in vitamins. They are especially very good for the liver, kidneys, gallbladder and stomach. They are an excellent detoxifier. Radishes are also considered an anti-congestive, which means that they help decrease respiratory irritation. Their list of health benefits can fill an entire post! It makes me want to eat more of them.
Cucumbers help add water to the body which can keep you hydrated. This can help the body flush out toxins. They boast B vitamins, A, and C, and skin-friendly minerals like magnesium, potassium, and silicon. Cucumbers can also aid in digestion and may help relieve acid indigestion and reflux.
Fresh flat-leaf parsley is what makes this salad really stand out. Parsley is a fantastic detoxifier and full of vitamins K, C, and A. It is also an excellent source of folate. I like to add it to juices and smoothies whenever possible for an added nutritional boost.
1-2 bunches of fresh radishes
1 small bunch of fresh flat-leaf parsley
apple cider vinegar
extra virgin olive oil
