I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard, “how do you eat gluten free and dairy free, what do you eat? In 2018 I totally expected more people to be open to the gluten free & dairy free way of life, but people are still leery. So I want to share with you my favorite gluten and dairy free items that we eat on a daily basis. These are the stand outs, the must have items. Even if you aren’t gluten & dairy free these are still must try items… trust me you won’t be sorry.
A few thought nuggets about Gluten Free and Dairy Free items:
Make sure to inspect the labels– if it states “made in a facility that also processes wheat” it’s not truly gluten free.
Not all gluten-free foods items are healthy! Just because it’s gluten free or dairy free doesn’t mean the product is SUPER clean or LOW in calories
I don’t know about you but sometimes I just need a salad. With the holidays, family gatherings, and my husband always working a good salad is my GO TO dinner! And this salad is by far my favorite one I make, we eat it probably twice a month- for reals.
So here is my adapted version of this Avocado Chicken salad, I consider this a good ole’ fashion COBB SALAD but the way I like it.
Super easy to toss all together and enjoy the crunch!!!
1 bag or head romaine lettuce chopped
2 large chicken breasts* I put in a crockpot with spices 2-3 hrs then shredded
Happy October and Happy National Homemade Cookie day (yesterday) Friends!
I’m so excited to share one of my husbands favorite cookie recipes. I adapted this recipe from one of my favorite foodies Molly from What Molly Made. Because Kale, Blakely and myself have gluten and dairy allergies I have changed her recipe to fit our eating style. Changing recipes to GF/ dairy free is something I have become a pro at and if you have allergies I’m sure you are a pro too!
I wouldn’t call this recipe ” healthy “. But hey, it’s chocolate chip cookies so the calories don’t count. Right?
The reason my husband loves these cookies (thanks Molly) is because they are truly soft-baked cookies! The secret ingredient (PUDDING) is something I have come to love in baked goods ( I will post my Pumpkin+Pudding Bread recipe next). As a military wife I’ve sent many packages over seas, and I’ve found that by adding pudding to my goodies they stay moist and delicious for my husband to enjoy 1-2 weeks after baked (YES I said 2 weeks… when deployed those guys will eat anything).
