Last week I purchased a cook book by Cara Reed. Cara is an author, mom and blogger and dedicated food artist. Food artist? Check her blog out and you will see for yourself!
This book is a allergy plagued persons baking dream come true! Even if you can can eat Gluten, Dairy and Eggs you will love these as a healthy alternative!
Tonight I made the Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies and they were so good - everyone liked them here!
If you are full swing into gluten free eating and COOKING you will have everything you need in your pantry. No exotic never before heard of ingredients, and an explanation of some of the whys on the substitutes . example; A big one for me is the swap of Chia seeds for eggs. I bought a product from a well know company as an egg substitute, and while I will give it another chance - the first try was a total gagger in a GF bread recipe ( Not from Caras' book). Not only did the Chia act as a egg substitute, it brought in a delicious flavor in it's own right!
No need to mention how good Chia is for you too!
So here are my cookies
and because they were so good
I froze a bunch!
The Food saver is a friend of mine and my "cooking system". If you or someone you love have serious food allergies, you have to come up with a battle plan to feed and nurture.
You can go to the store and buy cookies - maybe - but I could throw packing peanuts and cardboard shreds in my Vitamix and end up with something equally yummy and not spend $6.00.
Am I anti- processed food? Yes, for an array of reasons. I have to know what I am eating in order to not have a reaction, and then I'm not sure if I will be covered in hives and have an instant flu.
It is no fun! Are you in this growing populace of people with a crazy autoimmune system? Someone you love and nurture? You need to formulate an eating plan for good nutrition, enjoyment and economy! You need this book!
I have put in three years of food exploration and I am winning the battle and enjoying the benefits. A simple thing like a really great cookie means a lot, I can't wait to try more recipes from
Just so you know, I have no affiliation with Cara. This not sponsored or paid for - I just want to share this little treasure!
I had to do it, otherwise, I know I would have eaten way to many!
