October 30, 2017 And good riddance! I will humbly admit that going grain free was NOT easy. I believe I've shared that already. The greatest struggle that came about from this journey was that I became allergic to eggs. Not severely to the point of needing an Epi-Pen.

Our daughter is a ravenous eater of proteins, vegetables, fruits, grain-free pancakes and grain-free treats. AND even eats a WHOLE banana every morning! It took exactly ONE WEEK of missed meals, gaggings, cleaning up gaggings and tremendous amount… Continue reading Grain Free Breakfast – PART 2
