    Guest Blog from Jahdiel Caudle + Recipe!

    Hello there Guiltless Goodies fam!

    We have a new friend to introduce you to! Her name is Jahdiel, she is a wife and mama to three who integrated our goodies into her family's lifestyle over 5 years ago! We loved learning that our food has made a difference in their lives, after all, that's been our goal since we started! We love being that healthy nourishing option for families out there, and it warms our hearts when we hear from YOU!

    Now before we get too sappy, let's hear from Jahdiel! We hope you enjoy her story AND amazing recipe she shared!

    Guiltless Goodies world!

    I am so excited to be able to share with you my love for everything Guiltless Goodies! My name is Jahdiel Caudle. I am a stay at home mother of two very active boys and one newborn little girl.  I live in Midland, Texas and am admin for several mom groups including Natural Moms of Midland and Midland Crunchy Mamma Tribe. I have a passion for helping mothers through natural living, pregnancy, and managing their home life simply. I am currently in the process of becoming a birth boot camp teacher.

    My wonderful husband was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 12. We started seeing an integrative medicine doctor about 6 years ago to help manage his diabetes and possibly cure him from the disease. When they told me we had to completely change the way we eat my first thought was “you mean I have to give up my cake and cookies?”. I had to completely relearn how to cook every meal we liked. I loved to cook and bake but I was working and pregnant with our first child and didn’t have time for it. Our doctor was the first person to tell me about Guiltless Goodies. I placed a bulk order for pizza crust, bread and tortillas. I fell in love! The best part was it didn’t raise my husbands blood sugar and it was so yummy! I started stocking up my freezer with everything Guiltless Goodies offered. It was convenient, delicious, and healthy.

    Five years later, here we are. I still order everything Guiltless Goodies. They have come a long way and now offer donuts, cookies, brownies and my favorite is the 7 Seed Flour which allows me to make all kinds of treats on my own. We mostly eat Guiltless Goodies for breakfast. Both my older kids go to school and it is so nice to know I can grab them a donut and they will be full until lunch. They can enjoy donuts with dad at school and I feel good about knowing it fills them up, it doesn’t raise their blood sugar, and they LOVE them. We also take muffins and donuts camping to fit into our outdoor adventurous lifestyle. We need something quick that gives us energy throughout the day, and I haven’t found anything that does that better.

    My most recent discovery of how amazing Guiltless Goodies is, was when trying to increase my milk supply while breastfeeding. About two months ago we all came down with a stomach bug. My milk supply tanked. I started eating Guiltless cookies and my supply increased very quickly. I’ve been giving Guiltless cookies to friends as lactation cookies ever since.
    My new favorite way to use Guiltless 7 Seed Flour is making sausage balls. Such a great snack or lunch option for kids too. Below I've shared my recipe!


    Guiltless Sausage Balls
    2 c Guiltless Goodies 7 Seed Flour
    ½ c almond flour
    1 Tbsp coconut flour
    2 tsp grain free baking powder
    ½ tsp garlic powder
    12 ounces raw cheddar cheese, shredded
    1 pound spicy sausage (pastured and nitrate free preferred)  


    *Preheat oven to 425 F, adjust rack to the middle position. Line a baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.

    *In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients except the sausage. Use your hands to incorporate the sausage to the dry mix (1-2 minutes until the mixture comes together) The mixture will be damp. Roll the mixture into 1 ½ inch balls and place on the baking sheet.

    *Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.

    *Cool 5 minutes and serve.

    *Paleo/ dairy free adaption: omit cheese. Decreases sausage balls to 18.

    Guiltless Turkey Dressing

    Guiltless Turkey Dressing

     

    The finished product! Perfectly browned and crisp on top. Soft, seasoned and bites of sweet apple and red pepper on the inside. One serving of this delicious, grain-free, gluten-free, yeast-free and low-carb Dressing is never enough at our Thanksgiving!

    Ingredients:
    1 loaf Guiltless Sandwich Bread (approx. 8 cups)
    1lb turkey breakfast sausage, removed from casing
    3 tablespoons butter
    3 stalks of celery (approx. 1 cup)
    4 large garlic cloves, minced
    1 fennel, chopped (reserve fronds for garnish, optional)
    1 large yellow sweet onion, chopped
    1 large red bell pepper, chopped
    2 small to medium green apples, chopped (approx. 2 cups)
    8 oz fresh cranberries (optional)
    1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
    1 tablespoon fresh sage leaves, chopped (approx. 3 leaves)
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1 teaspoon sea salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    2 cups organic chicken broth (divided)
    3 organic eggs

    Baked Guiltless 1 inch Bread cubes in two baking pans, 40 minutes total at 300 degrees

     

    Preparation:
    Cut the Guiltless Sandwich Bread into 1 inch cubes and divide between two rimmed baking sheets. Bake the bread for 20 minutes, toss, rotate the pans so each bakes evenly, and bake for another 20 minutes until mostly browned.
    In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter and then add in the sausage and brown it, breaking up with a wooden spoon. Once browned, transfer the cooked meat to a large mixing bowl.

     

    Reduce the heat to medium and melt 1 more tablespoon of butter, scraping up any remaining sausage bits. Add celery, garlic, fennel (reserve fronds) and onion to the skillet and cook until the fennel is tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer the vegetable mixture to the mixing bowl with the cooked sausage.

     

    Melt the final tablespoon of butter in the same skillet. Add red pepper, apples, and cranberries (optional) and increase heat to medium-high. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until apples become tender (and cranberries will start to wilt if using cranberries). Remove pan from heat and transfer apple mixture to the large mixing bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
    Add the herbs: sage, thyme, dried oregano, salt, pepper, baked bread cubes and 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth to the large mixing bowl. Toss to combine and let sit for 10 minutes.

    Increase oven heat to 400 degrees and butter an extra large oven-safe baking dish.

    Add remaining 1/2 cup of broth and toss to combine. Bread will be moist but not soggy.
    Beat eggs in a small bowl before pouring into the large mixing bowl. Toss until everything is coated, then transfer stuffing to the baking dish.
    Bake for 35 minutes uncovered, the top will be golden and crisp on top. Then cover with a sheet of parchment paper laid on top of the dish, and bake for 10 more minutes.

    Remove from oven and let cool slightly for a few minutes. Top with chopped fennel fronds (optional) and serve.
