Hi I’m glad I found your blog. I’m goin to try a gluten and wheat free diet as much as I can. I find it hard to cook without certain ingredients as I have three small children who love crackers, biscuits pasta bread etc. I can try to cut it out of my diet but means I’m making a few different meals for the family. Why am I cutting it out?Well, for as long as I can remember I have had a sluggish heaviness on waking every morning and also been constipated since forever!
I get spots all over my neck and along my jaw line the day after I eat things containing wheat or gluten and awful cramps in my stomach IMMEDIATELY after my last mouthful of the bad stuff like pasta. I find Brown bread not so bad but pasta kills me.Do you think I could have a complex sensitivity or coulduthis be something else? I also don’t agree with full fat milk, get bad tummy aches.Thanks
Thanks for writing..
I wish you good luck! :)
1.Crunchy Apple Sandwich
Skip the bread and get fancy with your gluten-free alternatives! Enjoy the fruits of fall by slicing apples thinly to create a sweet and salty sandwich that isn’t full of empty calories. This treat is no trick—your little ones will love to bite into such a chocolate-filled, fun snack.
Cut an apple into 4 slices, top 2 apple slices with almond butter, granola and dark chocolate chips. Sandwich the other 2 apple slices on top of each prepared slice.
2.Baked Banana Chips
You can buy these pre-made at the store, but what’s better than the smell of homemade treats filling your kitchen? This recipe is easy enough for even your youngest child to have a hand in. By making these banana chips yourself, you’re sure to get the perfect amount of flavor in every bite. Beware — they’re addicting!
1 large thinly sliced banana, 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients; mix well to combine. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, lay banana slices flat on the parchment paper and bake for 45 minutes.
3.Avocado Chocolate Pudding
I know what you’re thinking—avocado? In pudding?! But trust me—this is a chocolaty treat you don’t want to miss. Not only does the whipped avocado provide a gluten and dairy-free creaminess that can’t be beat, it’s chock-full of healthy vitamins that might just “trick” your children into thinking they are eating an unhealthy dessert.
1 large ripe avocado, 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1 cup coconut milk, 1/4 teaspoon powdered sugar. Combine all ingredients in a blender; process until smooth and creamy. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

I just read this mind blowing article about cutting out soy, industrial seed oils, and sugar…This in addition to cutting out gluten will leads to a FULL recovery to a healthy gut (not a leaky one).
