Steak Fajitas Feature 2
  • 1 1/2 lbs beef sirloin flap
  • 8 grain free wraps
  • I like Siete coconut/cassava wraps
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 small onions
  • 3 red bell peppers or...
  • for FreeDiet™ phase 1 use julienned zucchini
  • 1/2 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt
  • handful of chives

  • Marinade:

  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt

Disclaimer, these are so darn good we made them 2 nights in a row and there will be NO leftovers!!  Fajitas always sounded unhealthy to me but when I got to thinking about it, I realized if I use clean ingredients this could be revolutionary in my arsenal!

Behold the beauty of this sensational hit at parties and when you are craving a fast-food meal! What makes this fajita recipe so amazing is that Siete makes grain free tortillas that are made from almond or coconut & cassava flour for those who need to be nut free or grain free!

This clean-eating wrap changed my life!  Seriously, it will change your life too if you are not eating grains or are on the FreeDiet™ like I was! Or if you would love to engage in the taco or fajita gigs with out feeling sick and bloated!  If that didn’t excite you this will be sure to make you giddy…..Siete makes chips too made with avocado oil!

At this point in my life Siete brand is the only store bought “chip” I will eat {ummm truth is I should say “chips” because I have eaten the whole bag in one sitting}! I have eliminated many things in my diet over the last six months.  If you have been following me on my blog and on social media you may know about my extra large thyroid nodule that appeared out of no where and its four little buddies who tagged along.

If you recall, it was a radical wake up call, and my diet did a 360 even though in general I ate clean and healthy to begin with! I took the FreeDiet™ to the extreme!  If you would like to read about it check out this post Toasted Almond Broccoli Fig Salad !

In case you are wondering if my radical diet change healed my body, let me unload the goods. I am happy to tell you only after “two weeks” {amazing} of doing the FreeDiet™ I could no longer feel the very large nodule on my neck! Then two months more of doing the FreeDiet and taking the iodine my husband prescribed, my body did its thing!  Apparently, low iodine can be a factor with nodules and cysts.

I went in for another ultrasound and the four little thyroid nodules couldn’t be detected any longer as well as the breast cyst totally vanished {like magic}!  The large 2 cm nodule had decreased by over 50%  and now is not a concern!   I foraged forward staying on the Freediet with gusto for six months!  For me, this was like running the longest marathon and then doing an iron man race right after I crossed the finish line!  But I did it ya’ll!!!

Honestly, I don’t think my husband believed I could do it {I love sweets}.  I had good reason to finally go the long haul!  Mind you, I certainly didn’t need to stay on the FreeDiet™ for six long months {t wasn’t so bad} but let’s just say I wanted to show myself who was boss and that I could do it!  Our creator certainly made our bodies to heal magnificently when given the right environment!

After my follow up ultrasounds the doctor was needless to say, surprised and asked what I exactly did.  I shared the details and he was perturbed yet interested and replied he had heard about iodine deficiencies.  I walked out of the imaging center with a grateful heart and happy to be among many of our patients who healed themselves naturally!

A friend and cancer survivor once told me, “If the body created it, the body can heal it!”  I hope you enjoy this easy, healthy and delicious recipe as you understand that what we put in our mouth is directly correlated to how healthy our body is or isn’t. I pray yours is!!

Steak Fajitas {paleo, diary & gluten free}
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8
  • 1½ lbs. beef sirloin flap
  • 8 grain free wraps
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 small onions
  • 3 red bell peppers or for FreeDiet™ phase 1 use julienned zucchini
  • ½ tsp. pink Himalayan sea salt
  • handful of chives
  • Guacamole
  • Marinade:
  • 2 limes
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ tsp. pink Himalayan sea salt
  1. In a large bowl squeeze two lime's juice, add cumin, salt.
  2. Chop garlic cloves into fine pieces and cut sirloin flap into long thinner chunks.
  3. Put meat and garlic in the large glass bowl with lime juice and spices.
  4. Let this marinate for as long as you can.
  5. Chop the onions, peppers and sauté them with coconut oil.
  6. Heat up the wraps and spread guacamole and add few strips of steak and vegetables.
  7. Careful not to over fill your wrap. Fold bottom up first and then sides.
If you are on the FreeDiet phase 1 there is a Thrive brand that makes coconut wraps {turmeric flavor or plain} that are super clean. Although, the Siete brand that I love has very few ingredients the apple cider vinegar is a food to avoid while on the FreeDiet phase 1. You can omit the red peppers and substitute julienne zucchini or another FreeDiet approved vegetable. Also, if dairy is not a problem sour cream is a treat to top these healthy fajitas off with! For my vegan option {which my dad loves} skip the meat and ad julienne zucchini. Please use organic and grass-fed beef when possible.

With a Spoonful of Health,

Dawn Rofrano

    For the FreeDiet Phase 1, am I allowed to have the peppers?

      Not yet, Amanda, but phase 2 is coming soon for you! You can substitute zucchini or any other phase 1 approved. I am sorry if it wasn’t clear in the notes. I will clarify it.

    Am I allowed to have those tortillas on the Phase 1 diet?

    • Dawn Rofrano April 18, 2019 at 2:26 pm - Reply

      Hi Amy, The Siete brand does have two types tortillas one is almond based and the other is coconut and cassava flour but uses apple cider vinegar. These would be ok for phase 2. So to be %100 on phase one I would say no but good news you can do the many other brands that are out in the health markets or online that are pure coconut meat like Sunfoods brand. Sometimes with patients he allows exceptions knowing the specifics of their needs. I hope this helps!

    Cassava is considered a cruciferous vegetable and these cause problems with iodine/thyroid function. I just discovered you and the Free Diet so haven’t yet got it but I have a substernal goiter 5.1cm and a nodule 3.1. So I am trying to get greens but most are cruciferous and even carrots are cruciferous. I wanted to use some for calcium. Nuts and nut oils are high in PUFA which causes inflammation and I am trying to decrease this. So I am confused about which greens to eat since most like brocolli, cabbage, carrot, astragulas, collard etc are cruciferous. And we are to avoid fermented and soy so this means no tempeh, no miso,…no probiotics? No dairy also…yogurt is fermented and dairy, cheese and milk all no good…where do I get calcium? Drinking it in juice etc just means a supplement because it’s fortified…should I just get it that way? If I can’t handle fish (allergy) should I just get B vits from nutrional yeast and Omega 3 from a supplement??? I really appreciated your story and sorry for all the questions. I literally just found you guys.

      Hi Dee, You are correct that some vegetables are not the best to heal our thyroid. If you have Doc’s book you will see phase one does omit many of these or he suggests steaming them as that helps. I also had a very large nodule as you know and was able to shrink it by 50% in just 6 weeks (and after few months all normal markers) of the FreeDiet and I did some labs and found out I had some underlying root causes. Dairy is also omitted in phase one. We usually have patients especially woman take a type of osteofood supplement (dr has a formula) especially if their gut is not absorbing these nutrients and at a certain age, we need extra. We are not fans of nutritional yeast for many reasons but one because most of us have an imbalance of good flora and adding yeast is not helpful to heal. It sounds like getting some comprehensive labs would be helpful to see the whole picture of underlying root causes. Let us know if we can help you further our clinic number is 561-627-5800.
