Thai Green Curry

I long to go back to Thailand where ordering food is a breeze, luckily for me traditional Thai food is primarily gluten and dairy free! Wheat and dairy as we know it in North America is virtually non-existent in Thailand where the staples are rice, fresh fish, meat, vegetables and coconut milk. Taking Thai cooking classes is still on my list of to do’s but until then I turn to Thai Kitchen for their green, red and yellow curry pastes, fish sauce and coconut milk. Feel free to use your favourite brand, just ensure that the curry paste and fish sauce do not contain any wheat!

Creamy Bacon & Shrimp Carbonara

Thinking that a creamy carbonara pasta sauce is off limits? Think again. I love taking a dish which is primarily made of gluten and dairy and making it completely safe for me to eat! Gluten and dairy free does not have to be as restrictive as you think. Nor does it have to be boring. It just takes some creativity, experimentation and an open mind to try something different. I put my craving to good use tonight and created a little bit of heaven. Enjoy the creamy, gluten and dairy free goodness!

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

I decided to treat myself to chocolate chip pancakes this morning. Mmm my favourite! Bob’s Red Mill makes a delicious GF pancake mix. It’s mornings like these that I forget that I’m eating gluten and dairy free! The chocolate chips add enough sweetness and flavour for me that I don’t feel the need to add syrup but follow your heart’s desire. Subsitute fresh or frozen blueberries for a healthier version of these gems.
