First Week of August Meal Plan; Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Nut Free Recipes

1st Week of August GF, DF, SF, NF Whole Foods Meal Plan

Whenever I talk to people about being gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and nut free I get a ton of questions. Usually the first one is, "What do you eat?" Well, lots of stuff! With our garden and the farmer's market in full swing, I wanted to write a post with our menu from last week.  All of the recipes are gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and nut free. Most are egg free as well.  If you frequent the farmer's market you shouldn't have any trouble finding the fresh ingredients. I provide … [Read more...]

We still ate it (and it tasted good) but you had to peel through a gooey layer of slimy rice paper that didnt really fry up.

And decided I needed to try again. … [Read more...]

My poor mother is gluten free, dairy free, soy free, corn free, garlic free, nightshade (aka tomatoes, potatoes, peppers) free, black pepper free, and onion free. What does she eat? Not a ton, which is why I'm happy when I can cook her something that she really enjoys!  When we were up in Glen Arbor at her log cabin over the Fourth of July we cooked tacos for everyone (using this Frontera Chicken Taco Sauce Pouch over sliced chicken, and Frontera Beef Taco Sauce Pouch over ground beef) She had … [Read more...]

The harvest is in full swing and we've been eating good and reaping the benefits!

We try to cook what's in season and it was the … [Read more...]
