Green Chile and Sausage Frittata (Whole30, Paleo, dairy-free, gluten-free)

If you've watched my Instagram stories this month, you've probably noticed I'm doing a Whole30 for the month of January. This will be my 6th completed round as of Jan. 31st. While I've attempted 9 Whole30s, a few of them were failed because I wasn't prepared or wasn't totally committed. 

At the beginning of 2018, I read It Starts With Food and it really opened my eyes to the scientific reasons behind the Whole30 program, how certain foods affect our overall health, and why we may not feel our best when we eat those foods. I committed to that round because it made perfect sense, and because I was sick and tired of feeling...well, sick and tired. 

In 2018, I completed four rounds of Whole30 successfully, lost 23.4 pounds and 18.5 inches overall. The inflammation in my body decreased significantly and my thryoid began functioning again...too well, in fact, and my 12 years of hypothyroidism/Hashimoto's turned hyperactive for a short time. I felt like myself again for the first time in a looooong time.

Allergy Friendly Travel: New York City

I've been intending to share this post for months but am just now getting my thoughts and details together. We haven't traveled much with our kids, other than short, nearby destinations, so this was our first big trip together. I knew there would be a multitude of food options in New York City that we don't have in our local area so I wanted to make the most of it and find allergy-friendly places we could all enjoy.

Roll-out Sugar Cookies (Vegan + gluten free)

Growing up, my mom's sugar cookies were one of my favorite treats. I remember making them at Easter, Halloween and Christmas with all of the cute holiday cookie cutter shapes we could find. They were this perfect, almost buttery consistency. Not too soft and not too crunchy, topped with a sweet and simple glaze of icing.

I haven't been able to enjoy those delicious cookies for awhile now, so I decided to use her recipe to create a version our whole family could partake in. With a few substitutions to make it dairy-, gluten-, and egg-free, all I had to do was use safe and trusted brands that are soy- and nut-free as well. Making this roll-out dough gluten-free proved to be a little tricky, but after adjusting the flour measurements, they were the perfect consistency.
