We often receive emails from clients asking about our recipes and their nutritional values. This past week, we received an email from a new client who indicated that she had been looking for a Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Food Home Delivery Service for the past year. And, now, she found us!
She said that she had been checking GoDairyFree.org and Living Without Magazine for a service and was unable to find one. It wasn't until she discovered that Paleo foods would meet her dietary needs and she did a Google search for it and that is when she found us! And, we are so glad that she did. So, in honor of her (and the millions of others with gluten and dairy allergies or sensitivities) we give you this great turkey breast recipe. It makes a great Thanksgiving meal or is equally perfect for any night of the week. Enjoy!
