Hi. I am allergic to food.
I mean, not all food, but dairy, egg, wheat, spinach, radishes, mushrooms, spelt, and coffee, so, all food. 😉
It’s been a hard few years figuring out this new life of cooking and expensive alternatives, but I’m getting the hang of it, so for today’s post I thought I’d show you a few of my favorite meals!
- Mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts!
I love this meal because I love potatoes. I literally just figured out a way to make them creamy and delicious, too. The secret is to add crumbled goat cheese! I use some diary free butter as well. Typically I use the little red potatoes. They’re healthier for you!
The brussel sprouts are the easiest thing ever and also good for meal prep. I buy them fresh, cut them in half, spread them out on a baking sheet, drizzle olive (or whatever kind) oil over them and cover garlic powder. I love garlic.
Set the oven to 400 degrees and cook for 30 minutes, flipping them over half way through. It’s kind of hard to flip them over, but just jumbling them up works too.
2. Gluten-free, dairy-free mozzarella & pesto grilled cheese with strawberries!
This one I literally just made and ate for the first time a couple of hours ago.
It was delicious.
I started with buttering the outsides of the bread. (I put down the first piece of bread and let it cook, then put it aside on the plate to do the other. That way I don’t have to flip it because I suck.)
Once the bread is nice and toasty, add the mozzarella. It should only take a couple of minutes to start melting and then I add the pesto and other slice of bread! You can also add a tomato slice on there, too.
I usually have it with some fresh fruit.
3. Hashbrowns and fruit!
This is so basic. I debated on including it, but I love potatoes, so here we go.
I just use a little oil in the pan to cook these suckers. Fruit is self-explanatory.
It’s just so good, though! For someone who can’t have bread anymore, potatoes really fill a void.
Pretty much everything I used can be found at Trader Joe’s or Target, aside from the Trader’s Joe’s Vegan Pesto. The gluten-free bread and Follow Your Heart Dairy-Free Mozzarella, I had to get at a Lunds & Byerlys. That kind of specialty stuff is usually found at the more expensive grocery stores, unfortunately!
Do you have any easy, healthy meals? Let me know! I need to get better at this cooking thing!
