It wasn’t completely new information about how gluten and dairy can cause inflammation in our bodies… but I think I had to have a wake up call to get back to the basics of how I wanted to eat and fuel our bodies for health. read more
Many of us are wanting to look our best and feel our best every single day. That change starts with what we eat. Common food sensitivities include gluten and dairy… But how do you start your gluten free dairy free diet?
Why eat Gluten Free and Dairy Free
First off… this is not meant to be medical advice… but only my experience.
I’m not completely new to eating gluten free or dairy free. I have more experience eating gluten free most recently because Keto is primarily a gluten free lifestyle. This is one reason why many people experience health benefits along with weight loss when eating Keto. read more
Berries are a love of mine. I love how naturally sweet they are. I love that they are a low glycemic food. I love that you can even grow your own at home. I used to have 3 blueberry bushes… Maybe I should plant some at my new house.
I was starting to dream (I dream about food mostly) about a berry dessert that was egg free, gluten free, and dairy free. It took a little time, but finally was able to create this beautiful dessert.
This crust is surprisingly easy to make. You throw everything into your food processor and blend it all together.read more
I am really loving having a toddler who loves to cook. We have really enjoyed getting in the kitchen together and experimenting with fun recipes. When she helps cook something, she is also more motivated to try it.
I found this recipe for Apple Breakfast Cookies from Melomeals and they seemed like the perfect afternoon snack for Aidalyn and me to make together. These are full of nutrients and low on sugar, so they are the perfect snack. I also loved that these contain a good amount of fiber. Sometimes toddlers are prone to constipation and this would be an easy treat to give them when they need help getting things moving along.
I cut the original recipe in half, because I wanted it all to be able to fit nicely in my food processor at one time. Making it fit in my food processor made it an easy activity for Aidalyn to help me with and easy clean up as well. She loves baking and I always like to find recipes that are easy enough for her to make.
She loved this recipe so much, which is saying a lot for my picky toddler. This would be a good option for a quick breakfast on the run. You could give these to your kids instead of purchased cereal oat bars from the store. For more protein, you could add a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
You could also add honey as your sweetener if you don’t use stevia or xylitol.
