We are always on the look out for quick, portable snacks.  We recently tried these Peanut Butter Trail Mix Balls from a book called Dishing It Up Disney Style:  A Cookbook for Those with Type 1 Diabetes, and we loved these.  Best of all, they were easy enough to make that the kids could help. […]

Tuna Noodle Casserole – Gluten, Dairy and Soy Free

Part of transitioning my family off of gluten involves finding foods that they like that don’t taste different.  I found a recipe on for gluten free, dairy free Tuna Noodle Casserole, and I decided to give it a try.  My daughter loves tuna salad, so I thought this would be a home run dinner, […]

Gluten Free, Dairy Free Paleo Pancakes

Last week, fellow blogger Erika from Newlyweds on a Budget mentioned how she likes to make Paleo pancakes.

I am off gluten and all of the associated grains, I am quite certain, forever.  I have an intolerance to most grains containing gluten as well as gluten itself and a very strong yeast intolerance.

Tofu Chocolate Pudding – Tasty Thanksgiving Dessert Dairy Free

If there is one thing that I have learned from my yeast overgrowth, it is the importance of refraining from too much sugar.  Of course, during a holiday like Thanksgiving, that is easier said than done.  However, if you do like a dessert, having something with sugar is best if you can combine it with […]

Egg Free, Dairy Free Coconut Brown Rice Pudding

While I don’t mind my new dietary restrictions too much, breakfast is often difficult.  I typically eat a piece of fruit and a homemade sausage, but I miss having a warm grain.  Oatmeal is out because I’m currently intolerant to it, so I was looking to make something similar that my diet would allow. Enter […]

Lamb Meatballs with Tomatoes and Spaghetti Squash – An eMeals Paleo Plan Recipe

I am not a huge meat eater, but thanks to all of my intolerances, the last few weeks, I have naturally looked to the Paleo food plan for meals that I can eat.  Thanks to its focus on lean meat, vegetables and fruits, Paleo menus usually have something I can eat.  (If you are not […]

Another Step Closer to Physical Healing: Learning My Many Food Intolerances

I recently shared that my doctor found I had a intestinal yeast overgrowth as well as a pancreas that wasn’t functioning properly.  The next step was to find out what vitamins and minerals I was deficient in and to begin supplements.  The final step was learning my food intolerances. Boy, was I surprised! I have […]
