My friend and I have spent HOURS learning about how to eat gluten-free. I mean, we've spent HOURS. While the kids went to their one-day-a-week school today, we went around looking for gluten-free bakeries and finding healthy stores. Um, it's really expensive to have food made for you that's gluten-free. It is so much better to learn how to make it all on your own. I got a book awhile back from Future Horizons that is a recipe book for gluten-free cooking. Special Diets for Special Kids. Over 200 revised and new Gluten-free, casein-free recipes. It's a fantastic book because the recipes are for kids in mind. What can we make that's healthy, doesn't have a million ingredients, and kid will love? Even better, it's not gonna hurt them if they have an allergy because substitutes were made. Well, it's not nearly as hard as I thought. Michele and I went to Whole Foods and had so much fun sampling everything. I think I sampled the mangoes so much that it equaled just eating a whole mango. So funny. They had this machine that had peanuts in it and you can grind it. Guess what comes out? Peanut butter of course! No yucky preservatives in it, just good ol' fashion peanuts. Nothing needed to be added to it. I'm in loooove with the store.
|at least I try to convince myself... haha|
Here is the smoothie we made tonight. See? Not difficult at all! Was yummy too. :D
