Food suggestions [Oct. 19th, 2012|02:05 pm]
Against the grain


I am looking for crackers/chips/snack ideas that I can feed my 3 and a half year old son. He cannot have any gluten, oats, dairy, eggs, corn, soy, nuts, sweet potato. We have to limit potatoes, rice, and tomatoes due to sensitivities. I am just looking for some other ideas for snacks and side dishes. The crackers we used to eat have corn in them, as do the chicken nuggets we used to eat. It is so hard with so many limitations. I feel so bad telling him he can't have foods he used to eat, but I know it will make him feel better. Any suggestions for foods or even recipes would be greatly appreciated. I tried to make mashed cauliflower one night and he was not a fan. I have made him tomato free ketchup since he eats ketchup on everything, and that works good. I am planning to try carrot fries, and we just found plantain chips that he loves. It was one thing before when we just had dairy, wheat and eggs, but now to take away more foods from him that he has already had is hard. Thanks!

Have you tried Black Bean Beanitos? Only corn free bean chip I've ever found. They do have some rice but are otherwise safe for your list as far as I know.

I am also a fan of Kale chips. The ones in the store are expensive and dangerously flavored so I make them at home. Wash the Kale and cut out the big vein. Lay in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake at the lowest temp your oven has for as long as it takes. If you have a gas oven just let the warmth of the pilot light do the baking overnight. All you're after is dehydration. Once you figure it out in your oven they will be a melt in your mouth yet crispy thing. Season very lightly with a hint of salt and whatever else sounds good.
