Today we woke to yet more fallen snow! SNOW DAY!!
This recipe is from Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain Meals Made Simple Cookbook. I like her easy recipes that are nutrient dense and not chalk-full of sugar or empty carbs.
I started by melting chocolate and butter with honey in the double broiler.
Even though being Celiac means I don’t enjoy traditional baked goods, gluten-free baking is now a hobby of mine. I want to raise my children to love fresh healthy fruits veggies and proteins, and they are pretty good with healthy eating – but, I also like to spoil them with good tasting treats.
Here’s the final product! Yum!
I find that as a Celiac, having dietary restrictions on top of having to be strictly gluten-free gets overwhelming so I try to think about MORE veggies, MORE FRUIT, rather than restriction of other things.
Since Celiacs tend to eat a diet of higher fat content and less fiber (which hinders good health), I also have been logging food intake and weighing food on myfitnesspal for the last year and a half. Personally my biggest food to watch and limit for heart health is cheese. I try to substitute hummus as an alternative to cheese. That works for me! It’s good to be aware of factors impacting heart health on the impacting gluten free diet.
