Allergy Friendly Green Gummy Bears – Vegan, Corn Free
This is the final installment in our gummy bear series that features Solti juices. This was our favorite gummy to eat by far, however, it had some leaking issues after being in the fridge for a while. I’ve seen this before with these types of ingredients. It’s nothing to be concerned about in my opinion, especially if you have a limited range of ingredient options.
Let’s talk texture. These were FANTASTIC. They were a cross between a hard gummy, and finger jello. I personally called them gummy bears, but everyone else kept saying finger jello, so I finally had to cave and agree with them. They’re very soft to eat, and have a melt-in-your-mouth-like experience. Are they close to a traditional gummy bear? Not even close. Are they amazing if you can’t have a traditional gummy bear? Absolutely.
If you can have traditional gummy bears, be sure to check out Krysten’s Kitchen green gummy bears. While they’re not corn free or vegan, they are one of the healthiest gummy bear alternative recipes out there. Also be sure to check out our Solti Charcoal Lemonade Gummy Bears, and Solti Watermelon Gummy Bears.

Allergy Free Comforting Chicken & Rice
This dish came together as one of those, “use what’s in the fridge” types of meals. I only used a small amount of asparagus since around here, it’s considered a bad word. I’m working on that by the way, lol. Here’s the best part though: after I had everything ready, I asked everyone to sample, and they were just so pleased. The Papa said that it’s not a dish that knocks you off your feet with flavor, but at the same time, it’s just so comforting to eat. In fact, he told me several times that evening that “Dinner was just so comforting. We should have that again soon.” Coming from him, and knowing that asparagus was involved, it was quite the compliment. So, from our kitchen to yours, here’s a comforting dish for the family to enjoy.

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 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.

Allergy Free Jazzed up Chicken Hotdogs (Beef Version Too)
Did you know that Kid Two is allergic to beef? It’s why most of our recipes that have meat are turkey and chicken based. However, when we purchased our stove, pots, and pans, it made starting fresh and dividing the kitchen awesome. Everyone else likes beef, for the most part. Now, we’re able to safely make them a beef version of something (even though I don’t do this very often yet). It also means we can save a little money by not having them eat the allergy-friendly meats, especially hotdogs, which can sometimes be more expensive. This was one of those times.
I like showing the kids the different things they can do with hotdogs, since it’s “easy” for them (no meat to trim and prep, etc.). Kids in general like hotdogs, but personally, I feel like the meal is too easy… like somehow I’ve cheated everyone because I boiled hotdogs and served them. Yet, if the kids boil the exact same hotdogs, I sing their praises for taking initiative. LOL. I really crack myself up. This time I opted to make something that I felt would be fancy and healthy. I had several items from Costco that I wanted to put to good use, and I’m glad I did.

Allergy Free Beet Stir Fry v2.0
If you’ve ever seen our Cookbooks, you’ll know that we have Beet Stir Fry. The kids call it Red Heaven. I kid you not, that’s what they call it. Like always, I think they’re messing around with me, but apparently, Beet Stir Fry is just epic. Now, let’s be honest, half the fun of having a blog like this is doing something different. If I always made Beet Stir Fry the same old way, there wouldn’t be much to share with you. So, I decided to take something old and turn it into something new. Although I really love making new concepts, playing with old favorites is great too. This one was quite special, and the kids loved it so much.
Traditional Beet Stir Fry uses red beets, so I opted for gold beets this time around. I also added in ingredients such as mushroom and green onion to add new depths of flavor. If you’re not a huge beet fan, try steaming one and eating it with salt. When I was first introducing the kids to beets, I did this, and they thought it tasted like a rich buttery potato. Then I introduced them to Beet Stir Fry (which isn’t really stir fry at all), and there was no turning back.
