  • welcome to the sprouted life!

    We are a gluten free family trying to balance real food eating & traditional food practices while still eating on a budget and living socially in an over-processed food society. This blog is intended to share: our favorite recipes, our gardening & canning experiences, our food flops (ask me about my egg-free, paleo, almond flour pancake mess) & life with two little dirt covered boys.

    all of our recipes are gluten free, many are egg-free or offer egg-free options (even though our family is no longer egg free, I still try to include egg-free options) and many are dairy free, paleo & GAPS friendly. we don't "follow one specific diet" but our cooking style is best described as "gluten free but inspired by wapf + paleo + raw + realistic."

    Welcome to the adventure we call life!

citrus marinated tuna steaks – {gluten-free}

one of our goals as a family for 2012 is to eat fish twice a week. we are actually doing a better job at it than i had expected and one reason is that we have been buying the trader joe’s wild caught tuna. it is frozen, it is very cost effective & not too fishy.  this was the first time i had tried this style of marinade and i was very happy with the final results.  i haven’t worked much with tuna and marinades, so i read about 100 recipes online and then just merged ingredients by what i had on hand.  super easy prep, 30 minutes in the marinade and then a few minutes on each side on the grill and bam, dinner is done.

i served the tuna with green beans topped with bacon and the side carrot salad from one of my favorite bloggers {the nourishing gourmet} cookbooks.  the cookbook is called {fresh: nourishing salads for all seasons} and is full of fantastic salad recipes.  it was my first time making the carrot side salad and it was wonderful! check out her cookbook!

an added bonus – this entire meal for our family of 4 cost less than $12!
