Our Gluten-Free Adventures

Gluten Free | Fun in the Snow

Gluten Free | Fun in the Snow

Gluten-free survival in the snow I find traveling and vacationing gluten-free quite a challenge. If you can figure it out, it’s well worth the effort as I have found that getting sick on vacation (especially on the road or mid-air), is yet to be my favorite experience. ūüôā I found this out the hard way. Healthy eating does require some pre-planning and preparation but I think everyone in our family benefits from it. I think it knits a closer family bond as we eat home-prepared meals together and we all feel better afterwards. Gluten has a very specific effect on my family’s brain...

Gluten-Free on AppleHill – A cider doughnut recipe included!

Gluten-Free on AppleHill – A cider doughnut recipe included!

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. Some of my best memories were made at various cider mills throughout Michigan where I grew up. There is nothing better than a steaming hot apple cider doughnut together with a cup of freshly pressed apple cider…pure heaven! I really missed the cider mills when I moved to California. Beside certain people, it was the one I really believed I could not live without. As a matter of fact, when I do visit family and friends in Michigan, I always try to do it in the fall when I can visit the cider mills too. One evening while out with some local...

The last time I went to...

Camping Gluten, Dairy and Dye-Free

Camping Gluten, Dairy and Dye-Free

When I first went gluten and dairy free, it was hard to imagine taking my new GFCF lifestyle on the road. Everything seemed so overwhelming at first. Now after five years, I’ve transitioned all our essential recipes/dishes and treats to gluten and dairy free. For the most part, we don’t miss the gluten or dairy and camping is no exception. One of my strategies is to make dishes that everyone can eat including my older kids who are still gluten and dairy consumers. One day, I’ll convert them but meanwhile choosing meals that are naturally gluten and dairy free helps...
