My husband, the dietician, answers the question of what the best diet is: http://thechifiles.com/2018/11/29/diet-and-human-origins/
My little one inherited some of my food allergies, which can make holidays like Halloween difficult. I did not develop my food allergies until I was well past trick or treating age, so my parents never had to worry about it. My son is still young, but as he gets older I don’t want him to feel left out on Halloween.
In recent years, I’ve come across the Teal pumpkin project, which is a great alternative for children with food allergies, but it hasn’t been well-received by everyone. The general idea is to place a teal pumpkin on your porch so parents know that your treats are safe for little ones with food allergies. Some folks take personal offense to children with food allergies being “catered to” and while I don’t expect strangers to understand or prepare for my son’s allergies, seeing teal pumpkins on porches is comforting. It is a sign of people who understand and want to be sure a child isn’t left out.
I have a few plans of my own in order to make Halloween safe and fun for my little one…
We took a long trip from Oklahoma to Minnesota recently and while traveling with a toddler is hard all on its own, we also had to deal with our various food allergies and the low carb diet my husband and I are on for health reasons.
Here are the things that we did to make it through!
Fun fact: I’m allergic to dairy, and also a granola bar addict.
I’m so excited to tell you about this! My husband and I worked very hard to bring you this recipe, complete with a youtube video and a printable recipe card. 🙂 I never set out to be a food blogger, but I am excited to incorporate it into my new blog over at rebeccalemke.com.
SO, here it is: Roasted Chicken and Vegetable Medley Recipe
