Could gelatin replace xanthan gum? I'd be making other substitutions and DS has never had a "real "cookie. , so if it was a little off from the original consistency, it's OK.

I would give it a try...or I might even omit it. I made muffins with a similar flour combo the other night and it wasn't until later that I realized I didn't put in the xanthan. But those did have more applesauce which has pectin. What other changes are you making? I think that might be a factor too. I just find gelatin rather gummy.

Re: Rosette Spritz Cookies with Egg Nog Cream Filling - dairy, egg, gluten free

Kathy P ·
Gluten-Free Spritz Cookies - and swap out the cream cheese with Tofutti and any stick margarine. Pipe out unchilled dough as rosettes using a pastry bag. Chill/freeze 5 minutes before baking. The Egg Nog Cream filling is a basic butter flavored with Silk Nog - 1 stick margarine, 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 Tbsp Silk Nog, a splash of vanilla, an a dash of nutmeg and cloves.

Re: How Do You Make Creamy Mashed Potatoes Without Milk or Soy?

Brittany2017 ·
What if I don't have veggie or chicken stock? Also what if I don't have unsweetened milk alternative and what do you mean when you said "save the potato cooking water and use it"?
Comment

Re: How Do You Make Creamy Mashed Potatoes Without Milk or Soy?

Kathy P ·
When you drain the potatoes, put a bowl or something in the sink and drain the potatoes over that. You won't need all of the cooking water. Just usually a cup or so. I use a glass mug. On Nov 13, 2017 4:06 AM, "Kids With Food Allergies" < support@aafa.org > wrote:

Re: How Do You Make Creamy Mashed Potatoes Without Milk or Soy?

Amy in Texas ·
I just add olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to my mashed potatoes. I don't drain them so well that I need to add any liquid. Chicken broth is a nice addition, but I don't like to add cold broth, and I'm too lazy to heat any, so unless I'm cooking a meal that has generated chicken broth, I don't use it. Even guests seem to like my mashed potatoes, so I think it works. You would be able to tell the difference if you were eating them side-by-side of potatoes with real milk and butter,...

Re: How Do You Make Creamy Mashed Potatoes Without Milk or Soy?

Jacqui14TL ·
We use cooked potatoes, avocado oil, classic rice milk (unsweetened), salt & pepper. The avocado oil has a very neutral taste compared to other oils and adds a smooth texture. It's also great for the omega-3 health benefits. I use an electric mixer to whip the potatoes like my mom did which makes a big difference in getting a classic mashed potato texture. My extended family didn't even know they were vegan mashed potatoes until I told them and had the option of adding butter...

I have a quick question. If I submit a recipe, KWFA then owns it? If KWFA reprints the recipe or uses it, would I be mentioned as the original creator or do I loose all rights to it once I submit? Thanks!

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

HelenDamon ·
Some simple ideas but I am confused as why you are suggesting parents give their kids processed lunch meats, pepperoni, etc. These processed meats often contain wheat as filler and are filled with carcinogenic nitrates. Even if you find a wheat free pepperoni or lunch meat, they are still full of unhealthy levels of sodium and fat. I can't believe a health professional is actually pushing lunch meat as a healthy lunch!
Comment

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

Jen ·
As always, read labels to ensure the food is safe for your allergy set. Yes, some of these do include processed lunch meat. While not the healthiest, it is a good protein source and everything in moderation. These lunches are paired with veggies and fruit, so a good balance overall imo.
Comment

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

HelenDamon ·
I disagree with idea that a twice weekly consumption of pepperoni or salami for a child is "moderate". Find me a pediatric oncologist who would recommend such a diet. And look at the American and Canadian Cancer societies for nutritional advice - both advise to avoid these foods.

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

Allison ·
We all have to do what is best for our own families. For instance, my son is allergic to various foods that other kids take for routinely might take for lunch (eggs, dairy) as well as peanuts, tree nuts - and the sesame and mustard allergy rules out most forms of sausage, salami, and other kinds of lunch meat, unless it is a special brand (read: pricey). For a child with few protein options who can't have it, they often want it. It doesn't mean I would let him eat it every day even if he...

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

Kids With Food Allergies ·
We're sorry that you are finding the lunch alternatives unhealthy. We try to appeal to a wide range of parents and realize that everyone needs to make decisions based on their family's needs including prep time and cost. With that in mind, healthy often translates to "safe" foods. There are healthier versions - low fat, low sodium, uncured meats.

Helen, what allergies are you managing? I will state up front that the immediate tasks of avoiding our many allergens and filling my 4 kids' bellies 3+ x/day while educating them and running a household, plus manging a tight budget and maintaining my sanity, are always going to get priority over strict adherence to best practices for cancer avoidance. The perfect can be the enemy of the good, sometimes. Parenting kids with food allergies is a daily dip in the puddle of stress. I think we can...

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

Steph - that's a good point - about prioritising health issues (food allergies over cancer risk). I still am uneasy of introducing another health risk into my son's life, however. My son has 8 food allergies that we know of so far including wheat and potatoes, EoE plus environmental and I have several food involving severe anaphylactic responses to soy and shellfish and all seafood and many environmental allergies as well we both have autoimmune issues. I will look at the Safe Eats...

Hugs Helen~. I can certainly understand the cancer concern as my husband is a lung cancer survivor. We also balance 4 kids (1 of whom is autistic with many developmental delays), food allergies, etc. I don't worry overly much re things like junk food, lunch meat etc. My kids all eat fruit and veggies, whole wheat stuff, things like salmon, etc. For my peace of mind, I have to pick and choose my battles. Anyway, do check out our resources, forums, etc.

Hugs Helen - our life experiences and personal medical history can also effect our priorities. We all do what we feel is right and just hope we've done due diligence and made the best choice. Please check out our forums (here is our GI disorders forum ) and recipes collection . If you see a recipe that looks promising, we can usually help to find substitutes and "healthier" versions of things. We are here to support you where ever you are along your journey.

Chamomile ·
Yup. For instance, I am all about environmental safety and recycling and such, but for two years when I had small children, was a single mom and had no dishwasher, I bought an obscene amount of paper plates and cups, rather than having to face a huge mound of festering dishes that I simply could not face. Do I think it was the healthiest and most ecologically-sound option? Nope. Would I recommend it to another mom going through the same thing? Absolutely. Regarding processed meats, I...

You are "kids with food allergies" not "kids with nut allergies" it would be cool if you posted items that steer clear of most top allergens or at least the most common childhood allergens.

Misty - this particular blog post was about pb&j options since pb&j is often a popular thing to pack for school lunches and it is also quite messy!

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of PB&J Alternatives for Lunch

Yes, it was about PB&J but "no PB- take a bunch of cheese and dairy" is a constant thing. It's advice everywhere and always frustrating. Parents share things like this and everybody proudly shows up PB free but still deadly to kids with the most common childhood allergen. I know you do a lot of other posts with things, I appreciate this site and didn't mean it to be ungrateful. It would just be nice if the back to school "don't do nuts" posts were chosen to be lighter on other common...
