21 Allergy-friendly Christmas Treats for Real Foodies
It’s Christmastime and those sweet little eyes gaze up at you, trusting that you’ll fill her (or his) tummy with something delicious and sweet.
Like a deer in headlights, you rush to the computer and frantically search for recipes that won’t turn you or your children into hellions for the next 24-72 hours.
Reactions from artificial colors, food additives, and refined sugar can be brutal. Add to that food restrictions, and you, my friend, could be in for a long night glued to useless recipe sites.
I scoured the web for you and came up with these 21 recipes that are free of just about everything. I even managed to squeeze in a few without coconut.
