food is a common love for every member in my home. making a healthy scrumptious meal for my family to enjoy is a way to show my love.
last year I discovered my daughter and I were allergic to some food. she was having trouble potty training so I put us on an elimination diet and her troubles cleared up. at that point it felt like we both had reactions to soy, refined sugar, dairy, wheat and fish. being a vegetarian already, the list of food to consume dropped dramatically. through research and much trial and error I came to learn wheat is in EVERYTHING! and soy! about 6 months ago my daughter and I went to an allergist and he confirmed we were both allergic to wheat and cantaloupe. since then we eat little of the things we have reactions to and no wheat.
all recipes are simple and relatively fast. we have 4 people in our family so most will feed four. everything posted is wheat free, little dairy and soy. I am currently putting together a cookbook that will be simple, wheat free and almost vegan (I eat honey).

I went to my friends for the 4th of July and she had this pie that was healthier and pretty good but as I was eating it I though... I got this (aka a few changes and this could be awesome). so with a few alterations I think I got it.
16oz plain Greek yogurt (I used non fat)
10oz whip (coconut whip recipe to come)
1 gluten free pie crust (gf homemade crust to come as well)
3 handfuls of your favorite fruit (two ripe mangos I used this time > bananas and berries are bomb as well)!
bake the crust and mix the yogurt with the whip. put the mix in the crust and top w a ton of fruit. place the pie in the freezer and take it out 15 min before eating.
simple, yummy and kinda healthy!
make it your own.

I feel that since all my kids are around is super healthy food once they get into the real world they will go buck wild on junk food, plus I don't like mushy bananas either. MARSHMALLOWS!! strawberries and blueberries!
happy 4th of July! hope you have a safe and joy filled day and a glitter, bright and colorful night!
