How Do You Tag Your Recipes?
Every now and then we get asked about the criteria we use to tag our recipes, so here is a brief description of those that may not be clear:
Free from added sugars, fruit, high-sugar vegetables (like potatoes and beets), peanuts, and all vinegars except apple cider vinegar. Any food that is rapidly metabolized into sugar or contains a high amount of sugar is excluded.
Autoimmune Paleo (AIP)
Free from all grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, eggs, and nightshades, and dairy protein.
Free from allergenic foods including gluten, dairy, eggs, peanuts, soy, and corn, nightshade vegetables, added sugars, chocolate, red meat, and banana.
Free from grains, legumes, starchy veggies (like sweet potato and beets), fruit, and all added sugars. Any recipe that could fit on a ketogenic meal plan is included, but daily macros will still need to be calculated and balanced when building a ketogenic meal plan.
Based on the Low FODMAP framework from Monash University. Only recipes made with "green light" ingredients which can be eaten freely are tagged as low FODMAP.
Recipes that contain ingredients which are all 55 or below on the Glycemic Index.
Based on the Histamine Restricted Diet by Janice Vickerstaff Joneja, PhD, RD as written in The Beginner’s Guide to Histamine Intolerance (2017).
Excludes foods containing high amounts of lectins such as grains, legumes, nightshade vegetables, and most fruit except berries. Excludes dairy products commonly made with milk containing casein a-1 protein, and foods which are high-lectin unless specifically prepared (such as pressure cooking).
Based on the Low Oxalate Diet from University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC). Only recipes made with "low oxalate" ingredients are tagged as low oxalate.
Excludes all added plant oils, butter, and ghee.
Based on the Legal/Illegal List from Elaine Gottschall’s book, Breaking the Vicious Cycle: Intestinal Health Through Diet. Only recipes made with "legal" ingredients are tagged as specific carbohydrate.
Free of added sugars including all syrups, honey, and granulated sugars. (Note: To filter out fruit sugar, use the Anti Candida filter. To filter out sugars from dairy, use the Dairy-Free filter.)
