Hi Tori, your menu looks great. Are all of these things gf/cf? Is your whole family on the diet?

Tori said...

Hi Sarah--Thanks for the comment! Yes, these are all GFCF and soy-free too. I'll post recipes/links as I make these things and take pictures! :) The whole family is not on the diet officially. My 3-year old son is the only one who's officially on the diet, but we make our dinners GFCFSF so that all can partake. I've got some more info on how our family does it here:

I just stumbled upon your blog and I love it.
My family is currently on gluten free, casein free and soy free, also no sugar and low sodium.
Gluten and casein free is for us all, soy free for me, sugar free for the kids and low sodium for me although our entire diet is safe for all family members.
The diet is to combat Psoriasis in our 6 year old boy, ADHD and ODD for our 10 year old girl, Fibromyalgia and Exzema in me and psoriasis in my husband.
I have found many ideas in just a quick skim of this blog.
Thank you for making yout trials and experiments available through this medium.
I actually do a safe food blog for us here on blogspot but it is in my native tounge, Icelandic. Would you mind me translating recipies from you and posting on my blog. I would refrence your refrences or your blog of course.
Regards from Iceland, Kitty.

Kitty said...

Oh and to add to my previous comment then if you wish I could translate some of our sucsess recipies to english for you and send to you.


Tori said...

Hi Kitty! How cool! I've actually been to Iceland! When I was in high school, we had an Icelandic girl, Alda, live with us for a year. I still keep in touch with her! She was from Hafnafjordur. Of course you can translate my stuff into Icelandic (I'd appreciate your referencing my site though.) I wish I could read your stuff!!! :) But my Icelandic is pretty minimal -- eg elska pig!

Tori :)

Tori said...

Kitty: Yes, please do send me some of yours! (whenever you get a chance!) I'll link to your blog too! :)
