Allergy Free, Vegan, Chocolate Chia Pudding
Have you ever seen Chia Pods in your local grocery store? I saw them a very long time ago, and Kid Two really enjoyed them, but only certain flavors. No one else seemed to like them, and I wasn’t in love with the price. After thinking about the ingredients, I set out to make them myself. That was over a year ago. The boys have been in love with every flavor I’ve created, including vanilla and mango. They also know how to make these on their own now. Chocolate however remains king of the flavors, as it is requested the most. This rendition includes banana, and everyone was happy to have it. What I like the most about this is that it’s coconut free. All too often, healthy chia puddings call for either almond or coconut milk. Well not these. However, if you’re grain free, you could sub in a milk that you enjoy. These work great as a breakfast, snack, or dessert. Once you’ve made them once, you’ll see how the ratios work, then I suggest you go wild and start making all sorts of flavors.

Grain Free, Allergy Friendly, Sweet & Sour Pork
I have been having SO much fun experimenting with the Cascadian Farms frozen cauliflower rice product. I think it’s been out for a while, but only newly available in our area. Whole Foods also has a similar product, however, it’s made in a shared facility, and isn’t safe for Kid Two. This new product though, it’s very interesting! When we make cauliflower rice at home, there’s a much more organic texture about it. The frozen package seems to have somewhat uniform square pieces of cauliflower.
I was working on a different project when this idea came to me – an allergy friendly sweet and sour pork. First, I thought I would about it in the tradition way, then I reminded myself of how much I love to go about things totally different. I have yet to see a clean, grain free, version of sweet and sour pork, and set out to make that a reality. When I made it, I was afraid I had gone a bit too far and no one would like it… They ate it all in one go. I think it’s safe to say this is a delicious recipe 🙂
Allergy Status: Gluten/Wheat Free, Grain Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Corn Free, Paleo, GAPs Compatible, Diabetic, SCD Compatible
For Corn Free: Source safe ingredients, especially the bell pepper, and pineapple.

Allergy Free, Vegan, Brussels Sprouts Lunch & Giveaway
As you may know, we teamed up with Bentology to bring you a delicious stuffed pork recipe. Well, there’s this one as well, as we didn’t want our vegan readers to be left out. As I mentioned before, I really like that this is a bento-style product. In addition to making this recipe for our vegan eaters, I thought it would be great since they work hard to encourage people to eat healthy. For those of you that are brussels sprouts avoiders, I can personally guarantee that The Papa was happy with this meal. Focus on the word happy. He hates brussels sprouts.
To make this partnership even better, Bentology has given us one of their lunch boxes and tote to give away. To take part in the giveaway, head over to our Instagam account, @TheAllergyChef, and follow the instructions. Good luck!

Allergy Free Bison Cinnamon Meatballs
Before we get started, Constructive Eating sent us their product, free of charge, to be used and reviewed. Alright, let’s get talking. This product… it’s EPIC. You know how honest I am. I’d never say that unless I meant it. The Papa, The Kids, and I all have our eyes on the eating utensils, lol. I can say that for the most part, we’ve been quite blessed with having kids that weren’t too picky when it comes to eating. However, our oldest, up until about age 10 could be a problem. I suppose the others were a bit picky in their early years too. I am over the moon in love with the concept behind this product. It’s simply way too cool if you have a picky eater. Now, I know some of you come from the background of “not playing with your food” however, have you seen the plates? As a graphic designer, I would have loved to have this when the kids were younger so I could make my own inserts. It would have been never ending fun for me, and them.
The inserts that we have seen are the ABCs, and different kid themes such as space, the beach, the farm, etc. There was also a place-mat included, but honestly, the other items totally overshadowed the place-mat. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice addition to the set, especially if you want your child to have the full experience. As an adult with older kids reviewing it, I could take it or leave it. The utensils on the other hand, I REALLY want to take them for myself. They’re just too cool.

Today, I present you with M is for Meatball. This was a recipe that turned out really well. It was my first time working with ground bison, and the kids, and the extended family, all really enjoyed this creation.

Sweet Balsamic Tuna & Avocado
Simple, Delicious, Awesome, Epic, Wonderful… This dish is everything that’s right with the world. It’s soooo yummy. Like, just yes. It’s one of the very few (four) times the kids and I have eaten something together in past several years. Here and there they sample some of the meals I make for myself, or I may use something simple I eat as a springboard for a meal for them. This however, they were more than happy to gobble up.

Peach & Blackberry Mini Pies
It’s not very often that I get to share something that I make for me. This is one of those times. I wasn’t able to eat it much, but let me tell you, it was such a nice thing to try. If you haven’t heard of Inna Jam, go check them out. It’s SOOOO delicious. They source some of their fruit from a safe area for me, so it’s worth trying, even if the test fails.
To give you an idea of how delicious this was, when it came out of the oven, I ate it… nearly piping hot. It was just sooo goooodd. I couldn’t stop myself. So I proceeded to make a couple more for the following days. Truthfully, I liked the filling more than the crust, and the crust standalone wasn’t that awesome. Overall, it was worth it. Well worth it. The filling really helps mask the parts of the crust I wasn’t in love with.

Allergy Free Organic Mashed Potato Soup
This was SOOOO fun to make! Did you see the Organic Mashed Potatoes Done Two Ways last week? Well, that evening, I was inspired!! We’ve never made potato soup before, and this certainly won’t be the last time. If I could go back and do it again, I would have added a little more milk or water to it was a little more soupy, and a little less pasty. BUT!! Have I got a surprise for you! Since it was a little more pasty, I can’t wait for you to see what we did with the leftover soup.
OK, back to the soup. So, Kid Two and Kid Four were my special helpers when this came together, and they gave me one of the highest compliments ever. They said “It tastes like a really yummy dish from a fancy restaurant where they would serve you bread with the soup.” Did you hear that? A fancy restaurant:) So, without further ado, here’s my first go at Organic Potato Soup.
