Understanding. When your cooking and eating habits need to be revamped than so does your patience, especially in the kitchen. Learning to cook gluten free and allergy-friendly takes a little extra time in the beginning for everyone. On the days that you have your best intentions at heart and you gather your family to work on a meal together, try to remember that both adults and children need a little extra time to learn the new process. Our family has found this to be an inspiration to show us how we can create unique recipes that we may not have thought of before.
Volunteer to show others what you have learned so that they can learn too. People are intrigued when you give them options, who wouldn't be? It's even better when you share cooking tips and see them become pleasantly surprised when they taste it, like it and know that they can also make it. Cooking with food allergies is the newest twist on get-together recipes swaps so why not wow them in the process?

Frolic while cooking- do you ever do this? I personally find that playing music while inventing new recipes and even cooking with my children makes me relax more and stress less. And very often, it leads to dancing and singing by whoever else is in there with you. It also gives the meaning play with your food a different level. And, frolicking is absolutely allergy-friendly.

Even your husband and children can cook. No, seriously. Most mothers will shake their heads at this thought but I have proof. Since Mother's Day is on the top of my list, I decided to share some fast, gluten free recipes that are elegant yet easy so that Dad and the kids can show mom some gluten free love with simplicity.

Having to change your foods and lifestyle, whether it be gluten free, multiple food allergies or even food intolerances should be a life-changing event- it has been for us and I am thankful for it! As I recently explained to someone else, the food allergy community is like an endless online family and I am grateful for every single person that I come into contact with. I wish the same for all of you & your families~
