Costco Has Paleo Pancake Mix (Non-GMO)

Food ingredients is a hot topic in our household. L cannot eat food and then I have a dairy and gluten allergies. Ever since L was diagnosed with eosinophilic esophagitis, we all changed the way we eat. We try very hard to only eat all natural foods. I was so excited to find this paleo pancake mix at Costco.

The best part? You only have to add water! I did add fresh blueberries because I love blueberry pancakes. This mix is non-GMO, no added sugar, and of course gluten, dairy, and grain free!

My husband is my worst critic when it comes to new foods. As I flipped the pancakes into his plate, I silently was hoping he would enjoy them.

May I get a drumroll? My husband loved them and asked for seconds. It was M’s turn to try them and she thought they were delicious. Finally, it was my turn. Friends, they were not dry. Score! It’s hard sometimes with gluten-free recipes. I enjoyed every bite and I believe the fresh blueberries made the pancakes even more delicious.

I highly recommend putting this good for you food in your tummy.

Easy Dairy Free and Gluten Free Strawberry Cobbler

The morning started by my oldest daughter M, asking me what I was going to do with all the frozen strawberries in the freezer. She is our family organizer and the strawberries were cramping her style while she was organizing the fridge and freezer compartments. I decided to go to google and search for an easy cobbler recipe. I found this recipe on The Spruce website. The reason this recipe caught my eye is that it used all real ingredients and I would be able to substitute my dairy free products for all the milk products. As many knows, I was diagnosed with a dairy allergy last year along with previously being diagnosed with a gluten intolerance. Doesn’t this picture display deliciousness?

Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free No Bake Energy Bites

Ever since L’s diagnosis, we say no to processed foods. We enjoy knowing what is in our foods that we eat. We are all healthier and living a more natural lifestyle. Each week, I love making the no bake energy bites for a quick snack during the day. They are delicious and so easy to make.

No Bake Energy Bites

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup ground flaxseed


– Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Put the bowl in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
– After time in the fridge, take a spoon and scoop enough to make a ball in your hand.
– I was able to make 20 balls.
– Store in the fridge in an airtight container.

Enjoy. Your entire family will enjoy these bites. You will be making them each week!

Allergen Free Pumpkin Muffins Recipe

As you all know, my youngest daughter was recently diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis. We have been hoping her motility would come back in her esophagus. The latter part of last week, we all wanted to jump for joy as she felt the motility was back! We figured out unfortunately, that she cannot have eggs. Her doctor was hoping she could do a top 4 allergy removal (dairy, soy, wheat, and tree nuts) and her known allergens (lemon, corn, and peanuts), but unfortunately she had a reaction to eggs this past weekend. It broke our hearts, so sad. We decided, we definitely needed to stick with the top 8 allergy removal (dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soy) along with lemon and corn.

After another trip to Earth Fare, I found a muffin mix by Enjoy Life Foods. As their website says, all Enjoy Life Foods products are free-from the eight most common food allergens in the United States, as declared by the FDA — wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish. In addition, their products are made in an allergy-friendly facility, so there’s no chance of contamination. The foods also are free from Canada’s twelve priority food allergens, which include the top eight plus sulfites, crustaceans, sesame and mustard.

L decided she wanted pumpkin muffins. I came up with a recipe tonight and she really loves them. She has had three muffins this evening!

We will continue to do this food trial and see if she has any reactions. With EOE, it is a delayed reaction. Please let these muffins do well with her esophagus!


1 box of Enjoy Life Foods muffin mix
1 can of pumpkin puree
2 tbsp of ground cinnamon
1 tbsp of vanilla extract


Mix all ingredients. Do not over stir. Put paper liners in your muffin pan. Spoon muffin mix into the liners. Fill 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. You can refrigerate the muffins up to 5 days.

Cookies Made With Vegetables?

Hidden Garden Thumbnail

Is it hard to get your child to eat their veggies? Never fear, we have a possible solution. Give them a cookie that is made with vegetables! We were pretty eager to get these cookies to try them once Hidden Garden Foods reached out to us about reviewing their brand.

Here is a little back story on this brand. The founder, Catherine, was having difficulty getting her two young daughters to eat vegetables. All they wanted was to eat cookies, so naturally,  Catherine decided the best plan of action was to combine the two and Hidden Garden Foods was born! That was back in 2012. Now four different flavors of cookies are selling in grocery stores all across North America. The flavors are Chocolate Chip made with Pumpkin, Ginger Snap made with Butternut Squash, Red Velvet made with beets, and Cocoa Cherry made with Spinach. All of the cookies are certified Gluten Free, and made in a completely nut-free, peanut-free facility. The products are also all natural, made with ingredients that most people could find in their local grocery store or pantry at home.

I recruited my three-year old grandson to do a taste test with me. You don’t get a more honest opinion than a three year old. Check out our video to get his reaction. You will be VERY surprised when you see what flavor he picked as his favorite.

The video speaks for itself! You can purchase the cookies on their website or in health food stores across the country.
