Some kids have life threatening allergies to gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, sugar and nuts, like my grandson Luca. Many studies are pointing to extensive food processing, pesticides, artificial ingredients, preservatives, and GMO’s as potentially being the cause of these allergies. Parents, looking for alternatives, can plant an organic backyard garden for an allergy free, wholesome solution. Parents can order grains, seeds, superfoods and flour from the Edison Grainery, a gluten-free, nut-free, organic facility. Whole Foods Market and Sprouts stock organic gluten free all purpose flour and many gluten-free products. Kids will like Debbie Adler’s “Sweet Debbie’s Organic Treats Allergy-free & Vegan Recipes” whose suggestions and recipes are based on experiences with her very allergic son and her successful Los Angeles bakery. Her basic cake recipe is ¾ cup unsweetened plain rice milk, 1 tsp apple cider vinegar, 1 ¾ cups all purpose gluten free flour, 1 tsp baking powder, ½ tsp baking soda, 3/8 tsp guar gum, ¼ tsp sea salt, ¼ cup grapeseed oil, ¼ cup coconut nectar, 2 tsp vanilla extract, ¼ tsp lemon extract, 3/8 tsp stevia powder, and ¼ cup So Delicious coconut milk yogurt baked at 325⁰ for 15 minutes.
