Thank you all for your comments on my last post. Sounds like all of us have a tendency to compare our food choices to others, some of us are just more guilty about those food choices affecting our own and maybe even our moods. Great discussion!
So today I thought I’d post about something a little lighter. I was talking to a girl in my photography class last week and she mentioned that she has an egg allergy and was wondering if I had any baked good recipes that do not include eggs. She said she wasn’t big on sweets but once in a while she’d love a piece of chocolate cake and can never really have one because eggs are always present. Of course I suggested subbing a “flax egg” for regular eggs when baking. In fact my new eat, drink & be vegan cookbook has a whole section on vegan egg substitutes. I’m bringing it over to class today to show her. 😀
I find that it’s become such a norm to hear about food (or other) allergies. I am not allergic to anything, although my onion hatred is so strong, it’s almost an allergy. 😉 Adam is allergic to small animals and pollen. We can never have pets as a result. Now is your turn – are you allergic to anything? How does it impact your life?
Fitness bread, low fat cream cheese, wild lox, dill and grape toms
I went back for another lox piece after this photo was taken. Yummy
Summer salad: mixed greens, fresh organic strawberries, dried figs, roasted chicken, feta and almond slivers, dressed in strawberry balsamic vinegar and 1t basil EVOO
Crazy delicious. I am impatiently waiting for strawberry season in Boston (these were purchased by my parents)!!
These guys are so airy!!
I thought I’d find them to be too airy, you know, like I’m eating flavored nothing, but they actually taste like real potato chips without the grease factor. So yes, I did in fact enjoy a taste of the cheddar potato kind (like the texture but I’m not big on cheese-flavored things – give me real cheese instead 😆 ) but the sea salt & vinegar guys were right up my alley. I had almost a whole baggie as my mid-afternoon snack (it’s 100 calories/bag). The rules say eating a whole bag is allowed. 😀
Korean bbq ravioli with spinach, peas and Korean carrots
This was a little too meaty for my taste but Adam enjoyed this. Shocker. 😉
Happy hump day! I’m going to learn about white balance in photography class. Very exciting. Comment on your allergy situation, please. I’m nosy so I want to know!
