Burgers and Brownies

Ooh, look what we found at the grocery store today!

These look soooo good and are gluten-free and dairy-free! Double win! Who doesn’t love a fudgey brownie? My 3 year old son sure does! I primarily bought these to make for him. Darn you, Sugar Control Diet! 😩 Until I’m allowed sugar again, I’ll just smell them. And salivate a little. Man, I miss chocolate.

Mmm…Chocolate heaven.

I also treated myself to lunch today since I didn’t have anything good for lunch at home and we were on the run. If you’ve never been to Smashburger or there’s not one in your area, you are really missing out! I found out today you can order a burger without a bun. I created my own with lettuce, bacon, avocado and truffle mayo. Served in a bowl with a knife and fork. Yum! I tried the Veggie Frites (flash fried carrot sticks and green beans). I decided to forego the ranch dipping sauce. Soooo tasty! I tried the Mango Tea sweetened with Stevia! All on my crazy diet plan! A greasy meal, but still on my plan and so fantastic! Check it out if you have one close! They also have amazing chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, veggie burgers and salads. We love the Smash Fries too. I so wish I had taken pictures of all that tasty goodness to share with you but I didn’t feel like ripping my smartphone out of my 3 year old’s hand at the time… Getcha some Smash stat!

Paleo Halloween Treats

Well, it’s the month of Halloween and you know what that means- candy and junk galore! This always present a challenge for me since my kids struggle with food allergies and sensitivities. They don’t eat a ton of sugar but I want them to be able to participate in all the trick-or-treating and Halloween parties. It’s certainly not fun when all your buddies get to dive in to their buckets of sweets and you can’t eat most of it. It’s literally taking candy from a baby. 😢

So, I ran across this book on Amazon.com this weekend. The Paleo Kid’s Halloween

I’m loving looking through the recipes and am determined to make some of these for my 2 boys to enjoy this Halloween. I want them to have just as much fun as their friends and not feel deprived or left out. I’ll be sharing the finished products with you once I make them. Pumped for trick-or-treating this year! P.S. – the e-book is FREE right now!! I got it for my Kindle. 😉
