Happy Sunday! Today is 75 degrees instead of the 90's we have been having all summer! As I sit on my deck enjoying this lovely weather, I decided to post the lasted vegan and gluten-free pictures from last week.
Vegan Gluten-Free Fetticcine No-Alfredo with Broccoli
(The sauce was made from cauliflower and coconut milk.)
Gluten-Free Moroccan-Spiced Chickpea Soup
Vegan Vegetable Curry
I hope this inspires you to eat more plants. If it does, post me a picture of what you made. Make it a GREAT week. Thanks for reading.
Sorry I have been away for so long, but my brother-in-law
passed away.Even though we knew it was
coming, it is still hard to watch someone you love slip away from you.We all have a very big hole in our heart, but
leaning on each other has been our saving grace.
I was going to post the pictures of some wonderful food I
made for a client and I went to get them off my phone and there was nothing
there.Can you believe I forgot to take
pictures?!Oh well, it happens.
So I did find some food pictures that I have never posted
Gluten-Free Chicken Curry with Sweet Potatoes,
Green Beans, Eggplant and Carrots
Pistachio-Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Plum Sauce
Gluten-Free Chicken Tetrazzini Casserole
Sometimes it is a challenge to cook dairy-free, gluten-free and grain-free, but I love trying new ways to cook someone's favorite meal in a whole new way.
What have you had to replace in your diet? What did you replace it with? I would love to read your posts.
Happy Easter!I hope
all of you are having a great time with your families.
I wanted to show you this breakfast muffin I made for my
client.She recently had an allergy food
test and found she is allergic to eggs, bananas and gluten.She thought no more muffins, but I told her I
can still make muffins.
I follow many food blogs because my clients all have special
food needs and I want help them the best way I can.One of my favorite blogs is from http://www.hummusapien.com.Alexis is a Registered Dietitian, so she
knows a lot about nutrition.The recipes
I have made are great and they use whole foods, nothing processed (love that)!
Alexis posted Vegan Blueberry Banana Streusel Muffins (they
are gluten-free too).I thought this
recipe is a perfect replacement for my client’s morning muffins.She used ground flax seed and water to
replace the egg.I tweaked the recipe
from using bananas to sweet potatoes.They were moist and yummy and I didn’t miss the regular ingredients, so
I hoped my client wouldn’t either. I
couldn’t wait for my client to try these.
A couple of days after I cooked, my client emailed to ask me
exactly what was in those muffins.She
couldn’t believe they were free of all the things she was allergic too.I called her to reassure her that there were
no eggs, bananas or gluten.We discussed
how to shift her attitude to foods she can enjoy and not to focus on the foods
she can’t eat.So, I am working on
recreating some of her favorite meals and breakfast recipes.
I love hearing from all of you.Tell me what food allergy swaps you do? Thanks for posting!
