The Gluten-Free Lunch Box Blues

The Gluten-Free Lunch Box Blues

It can be a challenge living gluten-free (or with any other food sensitivity).
When Samuel was younger it was much easier because he was not yet subjected to peers that ate differently than him. Once he was in school full time, I had to negotiate with him about the lunch foods that I packed for him. I wanted to send healthy foods such as “green soup” which is a family favorite at our house but the mixture of cruciferous vegetables made his lunch smell sulfurous which then resulted in his peers teasing him. He came home and animately announced that I should never send that green soup in his lunch again.

Cabbage Three Ways Gluten-Free Part Three

Cabbage Soup Last but not least is my cabbage soup recipe. Does anyone out there remember the cabbage soup diet? All you had to do is eat cabbage soup all day and you would lose weight. We all thought it had some magical properties about it but what we were doing is just cutting out all processed foods and sugar from our diet which naturally resulted in weight loss. I would eventually pass out and have to be revived with a burger from McDonald’s (this was the 70’s and 80’s, mind you). I am a protein person. If I don’t...

Hold tight, if you scroll down, I also offer a vegan version of this recipe using beans. Preparing the Cabbage Rolls I decided to use ground lamb for this recipe since I am trying to be more conscious of...

Gluten Free | Carrot Cake | Dairy Free Cream Cheese

Gluten Free | Carrot Cake | Dairy Free Cream Cheese

Really yummy gluten-free carrot cake!                       The cake started to lean to the side after sitting at room temperature. If you want to do a “layer” type cake as seen here, I suggest you keep the cake refrigerated at all times.  You can also do a sheet cake or cupcakes to avoid this problem. Tofutti brand cream cheese contains soy but would yield a firmer cream cheese frosting that may be less likely to cause the layers to slide.

Gluten Free | Sweets for your Sweetie

Holidays can be such a challenge for those following a restricted diet. Avoiding gluten, dairy and soy (present in most chocolate in the form of soy lecithin) is hard enough and now add color-dye and genetically modified organisms (GMO’s), such as high fructose corn syrup to the mix, and one can go into overdrive.  The holidays that are coated in red color dye are the most troublesome for us (Valentine’s day, Christmas). I am convinced after five years of observation that color dye is Sam’s number one behavior trigger. I...
