The recipe that I’m sharing today is easy to make, and something that our youngest child was in love with. Keep in mind, she doesn’t like fish. What makes me even happier is its allergy friendly status. This one is safe for SO many people.

Allergy Friendly, Paleo, Maple Garlic Ahi
I’ve found myself over-experimenting with maple as of late. However, it’s been a real win-win-win for everyone. The kids are happy, readers get new recipes, and I get to use maple. It’s one of my favorite sweeteners for a very good reason: it’s one I can tolerate without getting sick, and I’ve seemed to find a brand I can use, sort of. Too much sugar of any kind is never good for me. Maple is also vegan and diabetic friendly, so there’s even more wins. OK, back to the ahi.
Costco sells wild ahi fresh where we live, however, it is a little pricey. We pay on average $25 for the ahi, and it will make one dinner. Now, divided over several people, it’s not so bad, but by comparison, canned tuna is less expensive. Needless to say, it’s something that I make the kids every couple of months. At Costco, I usually purchase two packs of ahi, make one fresh, and pre-slice the second and freeze it.
I’ve been making ahi for the kids for years, and I knew it was time to do something different, and this was a MEGA Hit! Kid Four isn’t a huge fish fan, and usually only eats a couple of pieces. The others sacrifice themselves and offer to eat the extras for me. I know, how brave, noble, and thoughtful of them, hehe. However, this version, Kid Four was more than happy to eat several pieces, and even asked for seconds.
Allergy Status: Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Refined/Cane Sugar Free, Paleo, GAPs, Diabetic Friendly, Low Histamine, Corn Free Compatible, SCD Compatible, AIP Compatible
For Corn Free & Low Histamine: Source safe ingredients, and use a homemade seasoning blend. Look up the brands that we’ve used so you can replicate a homemade safe version for yourself. For example, the AP Season has tomato in it.
For SCD: Use a safe sweetener, as maple is not allowed on SCD, and use a homemade season blend.
For AIP: Omit Braggs, as some items in the blend are non-AIP. Instead, make your own multi use blend and use that. Read More
Ramps & Crab Dish Recipe
Remember when I fell in love with ramps? Well this is one of the few things I jazzed up using those wonderful little bulbs. I’m totally looking forward to the next season. Idea: ramp and leek onion soup. Oh and something with butternut squash. Yes, this is exactly how things come to me. Thank you for being part of the process 🙂
Back to the dish at hand. Being the foodie that I am, the idea of crab just makes me smile. It’s just so fancy 🙂 I think I make the kids something with crab twice a year and Kid Two looks forward to it. The ramps that we have access to via Good Eggs are wild foraged, and they smell AMAZING. While it’s similar to onion, it’s better. It has so many notes and honestly, I could just sit and smell it for hours at a time.

Festive Tuna Salad Recipe
Did I tell you we sent Kid Two to summer camp? Well, we did, and it worked out so well. He had a blast, met new people, and even met someone who likes to do card tricks like him. He was thrilled. What has that got to do with Festive Tuna Salad? Well, it’s one of the meals I sent with him, and he really enjoyed it.
For quite some time now, I’ve been using Organicville ranch dressing and coleslaw dressings together to make the idea of mayo in his tuna salads, and he’s been OK with that. I was aware of some vegan options, but they were all soy based, and you know how I feel about American soy. So I’m walking through the store a couple of weeks ago (read: perusing Good Eggs from the comfort of home), after my aquafaba discovery, and THIS AMAZING EGG FREE VEGAN MAYO product catches my eye. It says it’s made with aquafaba on the front. I read the label, and no soy! And Kid Two can have it!!! So of course I had to buy some. The Papa was the first to sample the creation, and he said it tasted like the real deal, so much that he couldn’t really tell the difference. Kid Two. OH the joy and that child’s face! Once again, regretting not taking a picture in that moment.
Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free*, Sesame Free, Nightshade Free, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo Compatible, GAPs Compatible, Vegan Compatible
For Vegan: Use a vegan, fish free tuna, such as this. However, if you’re avoiding soy, you may not be able to find a safe product.
For Paleo & GAPs: Use a safe mayo such as one of these.
*Cane Sugar Free Note: The Mayo contains a small amount of cane sugar. You will need to use an alternative mayo.

Quick Salmon and Rice Recipe
This meal comes together quickly, within about 10 – 12 minutes, making it a pretty quick lunch to make. I also like to serve this with steamed carrots. If you want to add a vegetable, start steaming it about 10 minutes before you start cooking the salmon and rice.
