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 .

Crispy Butter Candy Bars from Cradle Rocking Mama
I don’t use processed cereal often (like almost not at all) but these look like they might just be worth me making a purchase! I would sub in candida-diet-friendly sweetener. Her Chocolate Recipe looks great or you could try my Homemade Chocolate Bar or Homemade Chocolate Chips. These would even be yummy with a White Chocolate topping, hmmmmmmm.
Asian Chicken with Sweet Orange Cabbage Salad (GF) from The Tasty Alternative
No real need for a sub here unless you need to have a totally non-glycemic index sweetener. I saw this last week and was thinking I would love to make it!
Broccoli and Quinoa Satay from Oatmeal with a Fork
I have a real thing for peanutty sauces. So when I saw this I was super-excited. Even my son who doesn’t like broccoli was saying how good it looks! And I mean he really.doesn’t.like.it. I would likely sub in Homemade Sunflower or Almond Butter and a candida-diet-friendly sweetener.

Why I Gave Up Peanut Butter from Real Food Forager
We don’t have peanut butter in our house with rare exception, since our son is deathly allergic. But if we do, it’s a pure peanut butter or an organic one. We used to love Costo’s organic peanut butter. Alas, that has gone away, along with the Coleman hotdogs I mentioned in my post on Is Costco’s Coconut Oil Junk? Sigh. Keep turning those requests in, folks !
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
