Now that pregnancy has come and gone, my body has reverted back to it’s former self in more ways than one. The most annoying of which is the return of my ever growing list of food allergies.
Long story short, before having our son, I ate a very strict diet gluten, dairy, soy, chickpea, casein, wheat and sesame free. It sucked, not gonna lie; however, I wasn’t feeling crappy, headachey or sick all the time, so that was good.
Anywho, we’ve made a decision as a family to go back to eating that way with a few modifications for the boy. We’ve merged several “trendy” diets from current media: Paleo, SCD (Specific Carb Diet) and veganism.
TOnight for dinner I pan fried heirloom beets, turnips, brusselsprouts, red onions and garlic. I sauteed all the ingredients with balsamic vinegar and smoky olive oil and S & P. I then added a green apple sliced and pomegranate seeds at the very end. We also bbq’d some chicken breasts with nothing but olive oil and thyme.
Cost wise, this meal didn’t cost us very much. We buy chickens from a local farmer a few times a year butcher it into parts and portions. We also bought most of the veggies from the market. In total, I spent approx $7.90 per person for this meal and we have left overs!
Do you have any allergy specific meals you enjoy?
