Recipes

A note about the recipes on Love, Scratch:

Most of these recipes are gluten, dairy and nut free, but not all of them.

I began compiling this recipe bank before we found out about any of our food sensitivities and allergies (including gluten, cow’s milk, casein, peanuts, pistachios, sunflower seeds and pine nuts), and so there are a fair few things here that do contain some of these allergens. I am working my way through this list, updating them as best I can to be allergy friendly and am using the following symbols as I do so: GF = gluten free; DF = dairy free; NF = peanut and tree nut free, but may contain coconut. Use this guide to help figure out what works for your family. Also, THM = Trim Healthy Mama, with S = Satisfying; E = Energizing, and FP = Fuel Pull. There are a few of these recipes, because we are not “on plan” all the time, and when we are, we tend to stick to our own version of the Trim Healthy Mama plan, which Joey has playfully dubbed the Hot Mama Diet. I keep the coding below consistent with the real THM plan so as not to completely confuse you all.

Also, all purpose flour (or even white whole wheat flour) substitutes nicely in recipes that call for Gluten Free Flour Blend. Simply substitute wheat flour 1:1 and omit the xanthan gum (if the recipe even calls for it).
