    I topped with whip cream mixed with some cream cheese and some xylitol to sweeten. Honey should work instead.

    15min Creamy Avocado Pasta: 15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta ? Oh She Glows
    The idea of this scared the crap out of me, but I made it anyway. It was SO GOOD. My kids thought it was a little too lemon-y, but they all ate it. DH (the pickiest person ever) also ate it all. Very quick.

    Vegan and gluten free depending on your pasta choice

    Unjunked Almond Joy Bars: teach. eat. love.: Unjunked: Almond Joy Bars
    I realize that these are probably in the SWYPO category, but IMO they're better than the real thing so go GIO. My kids love them. I made a double batch and have them in the freezer for when I am in desperate need of a little indulgence.

    Can be vegan, sugar free

    Spicy Turkey and Zucchini Burgers Spicy Turkey and Zucchini Burger Recipe | Simply Recipes
    The whole family loved these. A good amount of spice, but not too much for kids. The mint and cilantro are awesome. I didn't make the sauce. We just ate them plain.

    Gluten and dairy free (without the sauce)

    Potato Squash and Goat Cheese Gratin Simple Recipe: Potato, Squash & Goat Cheese Gratin Recipes from The Kitchn | The Kitchn
    I will break my no-dairy rule for a bit of goat cheese. This is so good. My older DD said it was the best thing she ever ate. It's like super fancy scalloped potatoes ramped up.

    Raw Almond Butter Cups Raw Almond Butter Cups ? Oh She Glows
    Another good one for the freezer for when I need a dessert fix.

    Raw, vegan, can be gluten-free, sugar free

    Chia Chocolate Pudding: Sugar-Free Low Carb Chocolate Chia Pudding {Dairy & Gluten Free} | SugarFreeMom.com
    It didn't work for me. I mean, the chia worked, the taste wasn't right. It was SWYPO and I wanted just S.

    Vegan, sugar free, dairy free, gluten free

    Zucchini-Feta Fritters Zucchini Feta Fritters with Tzatziki Sauce
    I used goat cheese feta and inhaled these. So did the kids and DH. Big win. Swapped out for gluten-free flours.

    Chia Pudding: Superfood Triple Berry Chia Pudding | Skinnytaste
    I make this nearly every night lately. I LOVE IT. It's my favourite breakfast. It's so versatile, you can make it with whatever fruit you have and whatever milk. My current fave is almond milk with 3 peaches. Also good with coconut milk and mango, any milk and berries. I added honey the first few times, but not anymore, it's sweet enough with the fruit. My kids won't even taste it.

    Vegan, gluten free, sugar free, dairy free

    Breakfast Bars: Gluten Free Vegan Breakfast Bars Recipe | Simply Gluten Free
    I love these. My kids like them. I'll eat one as a mid-day snack between my chia pudding and my green smoothie.

    Vegan, gluten-free

    Slow Cooker Whole Chicken: Slow Cooker Roasted Chicken (Whole30 Friendly) | @dieffs
    So delish!! We all ate it.

    Whole 30, gluten free

    Cloud Bread Carb Free Cloud Bread Recipe - Food.com - 411501
    Made these tonight, half with garlic, half with cinnamon. We ate the garlic ones with soup. The reviews are accurate - they totally work if you follow the recipe and when you make them they are eggy. Apparently they will be less egg smelling/tasting tomorrow and more bread-like. They feel like a delicate bread. Like a crumbly croissant? Kids liked them. DH wouldn't touch. I used a touch of honey instead of sweetener.

    Gluten-free, sugar free

    The next day they are clammy and still smell of eggs. They were okay as dippers in soup again, but as a slice of bread it would be the grossest bread I've ever eaten. The comments about how fab it is are probably from people who can't eat real bread and this is their solution. I'd rather not eat bread.

    I make these yummy granola bars that are very quick.

    Throw 2/3 cup coconut oil, 2/3 cup of almond or peanut butter and 2/3 cup of honey in a pot and melt. Once hot and melted throw in 2 cups of oatmeal. Mix that together and then throw in 2 cups of stuff of your choice. Cranberries, granola, raisins, nuts and seeds and Voila! You have granola bars. Spread that out flat in a dish and throw it in the fridge. They are quite sweet yet healthy. My kids love them.

    Everything I have tried of hers is amazing! It's my two year old that can't have gluten, so I've had to find recipes that the whole family will eat and not miss the "old" favourites. Make sure you try her cookies I posted. They are IMO her best recipe out of everything I have tried so far of hers.

    Wild Fermentation | Wild Fermentation :: Wild Fermentation You might like this guy as well. I don't know how into fermenting foods anyone is, but my sister is all about it and her Sauerkraut is amazing. (I bought a cabbage to make some myself) kefir is a lot of fun. Especially water kefir. I have tried blueberry and raspberry kefir. SO easy and the kids literally drink it like they would juice. But it get's a bit fizzy. They don't get juice for the most part, so it's actually a treat for them and SOOO healthy! I have to grab the book at chapters to make the Saurekraut. I could get the recipe from her but I know I am going to love the book just based off what I have tried so far.

    Crunchy Thai Quinoa Salad

    i just made this for lunch and then didn't even bother waiting for it to cool before eating enough to give me a stomach ache. It's so. good. I didn't use cabbage be cause I didn't have it or like it and mine ended up a bit mushy bc of the not cooling part, but still crunchy, still freakin delicious.
