With 6 little foodies to feed, a momma can get quite frustrated trying to feed them when each of them have their own set of food intolerances. To add to the frustration, I have a huge set of food issues myself plus my husband has huge dairy problems too.
Some days menu planning can seem daunting , while others seem like a huge adventure.
This foodie momma doesn’t give up easy. When life throws me a lemon I make gluten free, vegan, lemon cupcakes.
I have learned much along the way and it is my desire to share my story to inspire those who feel like they are in a prison with food as their jailer.
There is plenty of good news here and plenty of progress. We are thriving most days and when we are not vibrant health is just around the corner. I see food as a gift and since I see it as such it is of great importance to me to make sure that I am giving my family the best and most nutritious “gifts” I can give them. Who would give their child a toy from the local dump? If a mother had a choice she would not give her child a dump toy because it could be contaminated. I am on a mission to seek out the best food gifts for my family.
When we see food as a gift we stop and eat it with gratitude knowing that it is a privilege and not to be taken for granted. So many people have no idea what it is like to sit in a restaurant and not be able to order 80% or more of the menu, in some cases not at all. When we go to a restaurant that cares about the ingredients that go into a dish and who have options for our family it is like a birthday for each of us, we get so excited. Yes, food becomes a gift. How about you? Is food a gift for you?
“Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” -Mathew 7:8-12 NKJV
