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. (There was an entry in a previous AFW of a cake that looked incredible, but used PB cups – I have a great healthy sub for that – Healthy “Almost Reese’s!“)
Welcome to Allergy-Free Wednesdays (AFW)–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 are shared on 7 blogs! Additionally, each hostess will feature a favorite recipe(s) from the week before. 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? Anything that is fitting for an allergy free diet in some way (we’re not that strict). For the complete rules, click here. Here goes – starting off with my favorites–and you should check out the other hostesses’ posts to see if you were featured there!
My Favorites from Last Week (with substitution ideas)~
Strawberry-Orange Breakfast Rolls from Tessa the Domestic Diva
These look wonderful! I would use a candida-diet friendly sweetener (check out Candida – The Beginning of My Sugar Free Life) and I would try the rolls with my Powdered Egg Replacer. I know–they might not be “perfect” but I think it’s worth a try! I just bought a flat of strawberries so this is great timing! I do think any berry would work :).
Chipotle Shredded Beef from Gut Food
We almost never eat out, but we have been to Chipotle a few times. I love their food. And we just got some tortillas (um..they were on close-out at Green Polka Dot Box. Don’t ask how many I bought :).) Anyhow – I would use a candida-diet-friendly sweetener. Mmmmmm.
Raw Key Lime Pie Creamsicles (also makes a tasty pudding) from The Tasty Alternative
I would use my Easiest Coconut Milk. And a candida-diet-friendly sweetener. We don’t eat too many avocados due to them being really high in copper (and they’re expensive!!!) but we splurge sometimes! These look pretty splurge worthy!
And I’ve heard (hey-here’s an affiliate link, readers :). If you click on this link and make a purchase, I might receive a commission. Your price doesn’t change and I so appreciate your support of my blog!) these popsicle molds are great. They are in my shopping cart at Amazon. Super easy to use even with alternative sweeteners!
and Readers’ Favorite
Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls from Fairy Wings and Pixie Dust…
Whoa! These look great but they need some adaptation to make them lower glycemic. I would try to make them as whole grain as possible, plus I would use a candida-diet-friendly sweetener. Looks like it’s a Cinnamon Roll-type of week!
