Welcome back to another week of Allergy Free Wednesdays!
A collection of yumminess that is aimed at making it easier for you to create healthy, allergy free foods for you and your family.
There is no “clear rule” against including processed ingredients in your submission (but we hope you are moving in that direction ). So…occasionally you will find some “whole foodie undesirables” in the entries.
What to do if you see processed foods and don’t want them?:
- White or brown sugar? Sub in sucanat, or honey or an acceptable sugar free sweetener. Get help subbing in my post on Substituting Sweeteners in Baking and Cooking
- Chocolate Chips? Sub in my Homemade Chocolate / Carob Chips (new & improved version coming soon!)
- Others? Don’t think you’ll find many, but ask away if need be. (I see an entry this week for a cake that looks incredible but uses PB cups – I have a great healthy sub for that – Healthy “Almost Reese’s!“
So—-welcome to Allergy-Free Wednesdays (AFW). AFW is a weekly blog hop where folks can share their allergy-free cuisine, gain knowledge about allergy-related topics/issues, and connect with others living or caring for someone with food allergies.
Your weekly submissions will be shared on 7 blogs! Additionally, each hostess will feature a favorite recipe(s) from the week before. Please visit each blog to see their features! Your hostesses are:
- Tessa @ Tessa the Domestic Diva
- Laura @ Gluten Free Pantry
- Nancy @ Real Food Allergy Free
- Amber @ The Tasty Alternative
- Michelle @ The Willing Cook,
- Janelle @ Gluten Freely Frugal
- and–Me .
Wondering What You Can Link Up on Allergy Free Wednesday?
My Favorites from Last Week (with substitution ideas)~
Coconut Milk Yogurt from Gutsy
Nothing really needed to sub here but I would be using my Homemade Coconut Milk and would be using a good probiotic to start this yogurt. I am testing a new one now – hope to have a good report for you all soon!
Paleo Vanilla Granola from Writing in White
I would sub in nuts that my son isn’t allergic to (and seeds) and would use a candida-friendly sweetener. And most likely unsweetened cranberries that I purchased! But they’re almost gone. Sigh.
For the egg white – not sure. Maybe flax gel or chia gel. If you aren’t grain free, you an use my DIY Powdered Egg Replacer instead of the egg white.
and Readers’ Favorites
Gluten-Free Applesauce Almond Cake from Whole Intentions
I would use a candida-friendly sweetener. You can see my post on Substituting Sweeteners for some ideas of how to sub sweeteners. For the milk, you can use Easiest Almond Milk, Homemade Coconut Milk or Homemade Rice Milk. And, of course, Homemade Egg Replacer for the eggs.
and Coconut Milk Ice Cream from A Life Unprocessed
This looks wonderful. If I made this for the egg-eaters in my family I would sub in a candida-friendly sweetener.
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
