Fajita Tostadas with Almond Flour Tortillas

10 days ago, I started the pre-cleanse phase of the Candida Cleanse outlined by one of my mentors, Laura Jacobs. It was not super difficult as it is an elimination phase and involved gently opening pathways of elimination that do not include my respiratory system and skin...yea! Today starts phase two of the cleanse, which I will write more about this week. Simply stated, it excludes all foods that contain sugar or can be quickly converted to sugar and most dead foods that are difficult to digest because they don't come with their own enzymes. This severely limits our diet choices, but has forced me to come up some new grain free, sugar free, cheese free options. And most of them include yellow squash, simply because it is seasonal in my garden right now. Here is what I came up with last night!

Fajita Tostadas
 
 

2 T Olive Oil
1 medium yellow squash, thinly sliced
1 medium zucchini thinly, sliced
1 sliced red pepper
1 sliced onion
1 tsp taco seasoning
Juice of one lime
1 handful chopped cilantro

If you wish you can add a pound of grilled steak, cooked to your liking. Saute veggies until crisp tender, season and squeeze lime juice over the top. Add steak if desired.

Now for the fun part!

Almond Flour Tortillas
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1 egg
1 t olive oil
1 t nutritional yeast (for a cheezy flavor)
1/4 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients to make a workable dough. Start with one cup of the almond flour and add a bit at a time until you can roll the dough into a ball. Then divide into five equal sized balls.

 
 
Using the palm of your hand, press the balls flat, then use the whole hand to get them as thin as you can. They peel off a Silpat quite easily, but you must handle them carefully. Place them on an ungreased (medium temp) griddle and cook on both sides for 2-3 minutes until golden.



These are not flexible, so best used as a chip or tortilla. They work great as tostadas or would be delicious dipped in guacamole.

I feel much improved vitality as a result of just phase one of the cleanse. If you would like more information, feel free to contact me. I look forward to sharing more recipes with you.
