Gabriel Method Gluten Free Thanksgiving Stuffing


The holiday season is upon us and while we’re all looking forward to enjoying some delicious and beautiful meals with our family; there are some foods which can cause problems for our bodies.

For example, foods like stuffing usually contain a lot of bread, which can be inflammatory, elevate our insulin levels and activate our FAT Programs. So here’s an alternative recipe that not only tastes great and gets the holiday seal of approval but also provides lots of nourishment for our bodies, without causing the hormonal problems that can lead to weight gain.

You can use this tasty stuffing for your roast chickens and festive turkeys. Either cook it as an accompaniment (by following the recipe) or simply fill your chicken and turkey with the uncooked, chopped up ingredients prior to roasting.

This is a great recipe to add to your holiday menu because it offers real nutrition that will keep your energy up, instead of slowing you down.

In the video you’ll see I used a variety of live GM Friendly ingredients such as fresh celery, onions, fennel, scallions, mushrooms, and walnuts. I’ve also used organic free-range chicken stock. Alternatively, you can also make your own chicken stock from scratch, again using organic free-range chicken.

When seasoning your stuffing,you can be as creative as you want. I normally add some salt and pepper, a really good and healthy salt I recommend using is either himalayan salt crystals or celtic salt. Himalayan salt alone has up to 84 trace minerals that offer amazing benefits to your health. Trace minerals such as calcium, copper, zinc and sulfur all play a vital role in your nerve, muscle and overall health.

Gabriel Method Stuffing Recipe:



Serves: 8
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes


  • 2 Tbsp Gabriel friendly cooking oil
  • 2 red onions, diced
  • 4 scallions (spring onion), cut finely
  • 1 fennel bulb, cut into long thin strips
  • 2 stalks celery, cubed
  • 1 cup chicken stock (with no MSG, artificial colors or flavors)
  • 2 large mushrooms, sliced thinly
  • ½ tsp sage
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ¼ cup red wine (optional)
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped (or pan roasted if you prefer a more crunchy consistency)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp fresh parsley, to serve


  1. Heat oil in frying pan on medium heat. Add onions, scallions, fennel and celery. Stir for several minutes to coat vegetables in oil until lightly browned.
  2. Add chicken stock, stir and increase heat to Boil. Reduce heat to low and cover pan. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Add mushrooms, walnuts, sage, garlic and wine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir and allow to simmer on low heat for another 10 minutes./li>
  4. Serve warm, sprinkled with fresh parsley. Or refrigerate and reheat when ready to serve.

I hope you try this “Gabrielicious” recipe and pass the recipe on for family and friends to enjoy as well during this holiday season!

I’ve always loved eating nori rolls but traditional nori rolls use rice, which can elevate your insulin levels and put your body into fat making mode. But you can use a combination of cauliflower, almonds, tamari and lemon to make a sticky rice substitute that tastes great, without the hormonal problems that can lead to weight gain.

Nori sheets are loading with trace minerals and make a great wrap. When you combine the cauliflower rice with veggies, avocados and a good protein source you’ve got a really great meal.

In this video you’ll see I made some with avocado, cucumber, sprouts and tuna and a vegan option that substituted tuna with tempeh. Tempeh is fermented soy and although soy isn’t normally good for you, when it’s fermented it can actually be quite good for you because it becomes a probiotic food that provides beneficial bacteria for your digestive system and is also high in Omega-3 fatty acids.

But you can use any fillings you like. Pretty much anything you would put in a sandwich or wrap you can put in cauli-nori rolls. Once you’ve chosen your fillings you can serve them with a little wasabi and ginger ( try to chose a healthy variety that does not have any artificial flavors, colorings or preservatives) and a nice green salad. It’s a real simple recipe that anyone in your family can enjoy!

Cauliflower Nori Recipe & Method:

  • Portion: 6 nori rolls
  • Cooking time: 30 minutes


  • (use organic ingredients where possible)
  • 6 nori sheets
  • 1/2 a head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 teaspoon tamari
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon

FILLING OPTIONS – Fill each with a few strips of any of the fillings below or your favorite sandwich/wrap ingredients…

  • Avocado
  • Cucumber
  • Sprouts
  • Smoked Salmon
  • Chicken
  • Tuna
  • Egg
  • Prawns
  • Crab
  • Pickled ginger (free of artificial colors, flavors or preservatives)
  • Wasabi (free of artificial colors, flavors or preservatives)



  • 1. In a food processor, mix together cauliflower, almonds, tamari and lemon juice. Process until well combined.
  • 2. Lay out nori sheets with the shiny side facing down. Place 1/4 cup of cauliflower mix onto the nori sheet. Spread it thinly, reaching to both sides of the sheet and about 2 3/4inches along the sheet. Place chosen toppings in a strip in the middle of the cauliflower mix, reaching to both sides of sheet.
  • 3. Roll the nori sheet over the toppings until the entire sheet is rolled up. With dampened fingers, moisten the edge of nori sheet to help stick to itself. Cut roll into 6 even pieces.
  • 4. Repeat with remaining nori sheets and toppings.

Have fun making it at home with family or friends and let me know how it goes. What did you think about this Gabriel Method friendly recipe? Please join the conversation by commenting below…

As you already know here at The Gabriel Method we like to take a mind-body approach to weight loss, which means that we try and address the real issues that may be holding you back from losing weight and keeping it off.

One of the things we like to focus on is nutrition, that’s not to say that we take a restrictive diet approach but instead we focus on adding the right kind of nutrients that your body can digest and assimilate.

Simply put, the more nourished you are, the less hungry you will feel and the easier it will be for your body to burn fat.

With that in mind, I’d like to introduce you to one my favorite fat burning breakfast recipes:

Blueberry Chia Pancakes


This is a great recipe to curb those mid-morning junk food cravings and help keep your blood sugar stable while nourishing your body.

“Most people might say, “Pancakes? You can’t have pancakes and lose weight.” That’s true usually, if it’s a typical pancake made with wheat or flour, but this pancake is made with chia bran.”

Chia bran is a great alternative to baking flour. Chia bran is not ground chia seeds but actually what is left after you cold press chia seeds to extract the oil. It doesn’t contain any starchy carbs or sugars, and it’s highly nutritious. Chia bran is an ideal flour substitute because it’s naturally gluten-free, high in protein, calcium and fiber and a great way to give any meal a healthy nutritious boost. Best of all it tastes great too!

Chia bran can be hard to find in stores but many online retailers sell it, so do a search online for chia bran and see what comes up in your area.

In the video you’ll see that I add greens by making a super simple Green smoothie made up of coconut water, spinach and mango. This green smoothie plus my blueberry chia pancakes make a it a super Gabriel Method Friendly combination and is an incredibly satisfying breakfast meal that will keep you going throughout your day.

Give it a try…

Blueberry Chia Pancakes


  • 1 cup chia bran
  • 1/2 tsp mineral salt
  • 2 tbs coconut palm sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbs ghee
  • A few strawberries
  • Dash of coconut yogurt (optional)



  • 1. Mix your chia bran, mineral salts, coconut palm sugar, eggs, blueberries, and unsweetened almond milk in a mixing bowl. It should create a consistency similar to that of a traditional pancake batter.
  • 2. Prepare your pan with 1 tbs of ghee and pour your mixture onto the pan. Allow your pancakes to cook.
  • 3. Once your pancakes are fully cooked, load your pancake up with some extra berries, a couple strawberries, and some coconut yogurt if you like!

I hope you try these chia bran pancakes and pass the recipe on for family and friends to enjoy as well! Please join the conversation by commenting below…
