20 min. Yeast-Free, Gluten-Free Italian Bread & Easy Mezzetta Olive Tapenade

My favorite holiday memories are of having lots of family and friends over for big meals. I love doing the cooking, preparing holiday recipes, the noise and laughter in the house, and of course, eating the food. I've happily adapted most of my old recipes to gluten-free but I had one more challenge. I was missing crusty chewy   Italian bread that I could make into Crostini! I've always loved warm toasted chewy bites of Italian bread at holiday parties. Topped with Tapenade or made into Bruschetta, they are my favorite appetizers, but I hadn't quite found the right gluten-free flour blend to achieve that wonderful chewiness, until now! I'm so excited to share my NEW 20-minute Gluten-free, Yeast-free, Egg-Free, and Xanthan Gum-Free Italian Bread Rolls with you and did I say, they only take 20 minutes? No yeast, no rising and so easy to make. This amazing dough is also perfect patted out thin for flatbread or pizza crust. Scroll down to see my new Pizza crust u

GF Skinny Protein Drink Breakfast

Happy Monday!! We drink protein drinks almost every morning, it's just so much easier and healthier than cooking something or eating cereal.  You can put lots of different healthy fruits and vegetables in the blender or your juicer and you will be thrilled with the results!  Much cheaper than buying Naked or other similar brands and just as good!

In the blender-

I add in this order

2 cups crushed ice
2 scoops GF protein powder- I love Body Fortress
6 packets or to taste of Stevia or Splenda or agave
1 tsp pure GF vanilla-optional but I think it really makes it taste great
1Tbl Chia or flaxseed meal (fiber and antioxidants!)
1/2 cup plain unsweetened GF yogurt
2 cups Fruit or vegies, diced.  I use any combination of apples, oranges, pineapple, berries, bananas, papaya, mango or throw in some veggies- carrots, celery, fresh spinach (you can't taste it) cucumbers, ginger, just about anything in the fridge is great
2-3 cups as needed of unsweetened almond milk or regular 1% milk or juice
Only fill to 3/4 of your capacity so there is room to expand!

Blend till smooth! 

This one is my Pina Colada.  I added an orange and some sliced pineapple.  It was scrumptious!!

I will post my green one for you soon.  Have a great day!
