ALL MY GLUTEN FREE PEEPS STAND UP!
YAY! Happy Celiac Awareness Day everyone!
I have been gluten free and dairy free for almost 3 years now! It was NOT an easy road to travel down by any means but I did it and I am healthy and happy and what more could you really ask for! (except for an entire wardrobe FILLED with Lilly Pulitzer…but I digress)
I just wanted to put up a quick post about the day and wish everyone happy healthy eating and baking today! And YES it IS Friday the 13th (ooooohhhh isn’t scary voice hear) but eating gluten free and dairy free DOES NOT HAVE TO BE SCARY! I used to think I’ll never find anything that taste good or I’ll never be able to enjoy going out to eat but that is completely false and you can live a very tasty life eating what is good for your body! Like my mom has told me when dealing with my allergies, “It will taste good for 5 minutes but the reaction will last longer so what is better?, the five minute good feeling in your mouth or the lifetime of eating what is good for you?” She’s always right (I hate to admit it but she really is)
I’ll be celebrating Celiac Awareness Day with some baked turkey meat balls, some fried plantain (my all time favorite food…seriously I could eat fried plantain all day everyday – Ghanaian style) and baked sweet potato slices with rosemary. OH and you can’t forget dessert! BROWNIES! If you haven’t tried King Arthur Flours Gluten Free Brownie mix TRY IT! SO GOOD! Top it of with a scoop of Cold-Brewed Cinnamon Coffee Ice Cream from Steve’s Ice Cream (that flavor is gluten free and vegan) and you are set!
