Thai Vegetable Coconut Rice

Looking for a delicious Meatless-Monday meal?  I’ve found it! One of my closest friends (and if I’m being honest, more like my therapist), Maggie sent this, Host the Toast recipe to me a year ago and we’ve been making it ever since. My whole family LOVES this recipe and it is a great way to sneak in some extra vegetables, especially if you’re trying to cut back on meat.  The recipe below has been modified from the Host the Tost original recipe to keep it lower in glutamate.

The recipe can also very easily be adjusted to be vegan. […]

Breakfast Cookies (GF, EF, DF, SF)

A few years ago one of our incredible REID Facebook group members, Wendy, shared a version of this recipe.  After seeing her post, I quickly got into the kitchen (because who wouldn’t want a cookie for breakfast) and they were an immediate hit. While I do not know the origin of the original recipe, we’ve adjusted it to fit our needs over time.  While this recipe is gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, casein-free, soy-free, etc. you may want to be cautious overdoing it with nuts as they are high in oxalate, contribute to constipation, etc.  This recipe is [...]
