Giveaway: Allergy-Friendly Food for Families
I have been blessed to be able to sample and share with you Allergy-Friendly Food for Families: 120 Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Egg-Free, and Soy-Free Recipes Everyone Will Enjoy. This book, sent to me by kiwimagonline.com, is an anthology of breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, dessert, and even party recipes that are not only family-friendly but also allergy-friendly.
Although my family does not have any of the allergies focused on specifically in this book, my children have some unknown allergy that comes up sometimes when they eat out or eat processed food. Plus, we try to avoid dyes and genetically modified food when possible. This book is perfect even for us. Most of the ingredients are whole foods, so we don't have to worry about pouring over lists of ingredients on the backs of boxes. In addition, the edge of the page on each recipe is marked if it is gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, and soy-free. There are no questions as to what recipes are right for your family if you have a child with one of these allergies.
So far, I have tried several recipes, but my favorites are definitely the "Mighty Marinara" and the "Eggplant, Tomato, and Mozzarella Circles." The smell alone of the "Mighty Marinara" makes the whole family get excited for dinner. This one sauce houses so many different vegetables, and they are pureed, so my kids don't even know they are eating them! The eggplant dish also amazing. I just made it last night, and I think I will make more today or tomorrow. Last year I had no luck with using my eggplant from the crop share, but this recipe made it taste great! The bonus was that it was extremely easy as well. These are only two of the many amazing recipes found in this book.
