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)~
(Note: There is an affiliate link in this post…to the lego molds. If you click on it I might make a commission. Your price remains the same. I appreciate your support of my blog !
Bacon BBQ Burgers with BBQ Avocado Sauce and Caramelized Onions from Livin’ the Crunchy Life
My youngest actually bit my laptop when he saw this post. (That’s the most enthusiastic response I think I’ve ever seen him have to a post !) These look AMAZING! And the Homemade BBQ sauce recipe for these looks wonderful too!
Antioxidant Lego Gummies from Homespun with Love
These were a favorite of my kids as well. They’re a little heavy in fruit for us, since we’re on the candida diet, but as long as you don’t eat a ton of these, I think we’ll be fine. Berries are lower in glycemic index than most fruits. There aren’t molds mentioned in the post, so try these lego molds .
Grain-Free Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake (DF) from Cassidy’s Craveable Creations
I saw these earlier this week and thought–yumm!!! I used to make dairy-full lowfat and sugar-full cheesecakes in my pre-candida-whole-foodie days. No more! I would sub in macadamias or blanched almonds since my son is allergic to cashews. I’d also use a candida-diet-friendly sweetener and possibly carob to avoid caffeine!
and Readers’ Favorite
Grab & Go Oatmeal Breakfast Bars from Allergy-Free Alaska
I would try my Powdered Egg Replacer for these, as well as a candida-diet-friendly sweetener. And I would attempt to make them totally whole-grain because I tend to do that with almost everything I bake . They aren’t always “picture perfect” but I feel better about myself .
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
