Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins (Soy, Nut, Egg and Fish-Free, Can Be Milk-Free)



This is a variation of my Cereal Muffins that is very autumnal.  It is full of apple and cinnamon-y goodness!  It is also soy-free if you use all soy-free ingredients, nut-free (if you don't add any), egg-free and fish-free, and can be milk-free (see variations).  Did I mention they are super easy, too?  Oh, yah!  Some autumn muffin loving coming right up! :)


Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins
4 Cups soy-free bran flakes

2 Cups milk

 1/2 Cup olive oil

1/2 Cup natural unsweetened applesauce

2 Cups soy-free flour (all-purpose or whole wheat, though I recommend the whole wheat)

1/2 Cup white sugar

2 Tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 to 2 apples (your favorite type, but I recommend 1/2 to 1 Granny Smith and 1/2 to 1 Gala, McIntosh, Jonamac, Paula Red or Fuji apple), diced into bite-sized pieces (skin off or on is your call)  (The amount of apples should not exceed 1 1/2 Cups TOTAL.)

1. Preheat oven to 400oF.

2. Mix bran flakes and milk and let stand up to 5 minutes (depending how much "crunch" you want left in them) to soften the flakes.

3. Add oil and applesauce to cereal mixture. Blend well.

4. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Mix well.

5. Stir in the diced apples (amount used based on preference) until well blended.

5. Line muffin tins with 24 to 30 paper cups or grease the tins with olive oil or butter.

6. Fill cups 2/3 or so full.

7. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until toothpick inserted in the center muffin comes out clean.

Makes 24 to 30 muffins.


Variations (Please keep your individual allergen needs in mind when using substitutions!): 

  • Other Fruits or Add Nuts/Seeds: You can omit the apples and add dried fruit and/or nuts or seeds (i.e. pecans, almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, poppy seeds, sunflower seeds) if you wish (about a Cup; depends on your preference, but I wouldn't exceed 1 1/2 Cups of add-ins total). You can also use another type of fresh fruit (i.e. sliced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries) would work, too, but NOT frozen as it will make the batter too mushy from water content.  You can also sub another fruit puree for the applesauce in an equal amount (i.e. smashed berries, smashed banana, pumpkin puree).
        
  • Milk-Free: Use a non-dairy milk for the milk that fits your allergen needs.
        
  • Other Oils: Use another type of oil for the olive oil if you like, such as coconut oil, corn oil, canola oil, etc.
        
  • Sugar Substitutes:  You can use any approved for baking sugar substitute for the sugar, though I don't recommend using a liquid as this will add too much moisture to the muffin.  If you already know how to substitute a liquid sugar substitute for sugar with success, by all means do so if you wish, though. :)


Don't they look yummy?

Have a great weekend!

Autumn Is My Favorite...


I don't really have anything to share today because, though things have been busy, they have been uneventful (to which I am glad) or full of things I am not at liberty to share just yet or at all (because they didn't happen to me or we don't have all the results yet, as in the case of the allergy testing my kids are going through right now).  I, however, did not want to skip a week of posting, so I decided that I would share some of my favorite autumn pictures with you today (all taken by me).  None of them are too recent (at least 5 years ago), but I am hoping to take more this year if we have as beautiful a fall as we normally do and I can get out there and take them. At any rate, it is my hope that this photos lift your spirits and make you smile.  I know they have that effect on me.  Autumn is definitely my favorite.  Enjoy!










What is your favorite time of year?

"Where Have You Been?"

Image courtesy of Michal Marcol/ FreeDigitalPhotos.net
Well, I have been, for lack of a better word, busy!  Homeschooling has been a lot more "must keep this schedule" than I thought it would be, i.e. not a lot of room for fluctuation in daily life.  My days are completely full from about 7:30am until 8pm with school, housework, family life, etc. Monday through Friday, Sundays are busy from about 7am until 9pm or so and Saturday...that's kinda my breather day.  I kinda live for about 8pm to 10pm Monday through Friday, but especially for 4pm Friday until 10pm Saturday.  That's the time I feel like I can breathe and relax.  Until then it is a little schedule overload, hence the picture I chose for today's post.

Due to the craziness that is adjusting to new scheduling, I have had to change my blogging schedule.  I am not able to participate in link-ups as much as I'd like to right now, I am not able to read my blogger buddies' posts as quickly as I'd like, I don't get to check as email as quickly as I'd like, etc.  It is not easy for me to have to change so much so quickly, but it is necessary.

Anyway, I just want you all to know that I will normally blog on Saturdays now (hopefully weekly, but I cannot promise that at this point), but a rare blog post on another day will show up from time to time, especially if we are on a break from school, if I have a guest, if I am participating in a link-up, etc.  Also, I will eventually get back to your emails, comments, etc., it may just take a little longer than we'd both like.  I wish it didn't have to be this way, but it cannot be helped at this point in time.  I sure do hope you understand!

I have been asked, with all the crazy, if I regret our choice to homeschool.  Not at all.  It was and is the best choice for my family, and I have seen some very positive changes and learned so much about my boys and how they think and work, you couldn't even begin to imagine!  I am still very impressed with the curriculum, though nothing is perfect, and this is no exception.  I have my "What in the world?!?!?" moments with it and my kids, my moments of wanting to pull my hair out, but I also have my "Wow!  Who knew my kids were so brilliant?" and my "I am so stinkin' proud!" and my "This is great!  I never would've thought to teach my kid that in this way!" moments, too.  I think we've definitely gained a lot more (i.e. one-on-one time with my kids and helping them along in ways I couldn't before) than we've lost (i.e. my sanity at times).  All in all, it is an adjustment, but it has been worth it. :)

Thank you to all of you who have been such an encouragement to me in this transition time!  Your kind words and prayers have helped so much!  It is getting better a little bit each day, and I am finally feeling like we're getting into the groove of things for the most part! :)  Totally makes me feel like a winner, I assure you!

For those of you wondering how all the change has affected my Fibromyalgia, I have had surprisingly little extra pain.  I have had a few overwhelmed, meltdown moments, but since I've had an increase in my Levothyroxine, I am doing a lot better (I can't tell you how not fun it is going through a major routine change when your thyroid levels are off!  YIKES!).  I still have to take myself out of the moment sometimes so that I don't overreact or freak out, but that's ok.  That's as it should be. :)  Praying every morning before we start helps a lot, too!

Before I get back to enjoying some time with the family, I would like to ask you all to continue to keep me in your thoughts and prayers about these things:

  1. That homeschooling will continue to improve, and that we will continue to find our groove.  It improves a little every day, and I am confident it will continue on that path.
       
  2. That we will find the proper dosage of Levothyroxine for me (and my son who has also had an increase in his dosage).  This is a must for optimum health!
       
  3. That the allergist will figure out the best way to help my kiddos (my oldest has been there and my other 2 are going in a few weeks) so that we can keep the ickies at bay, know how to keep them healthy (i.e. if we need to change diet or environment, do shots), etc.  I think that keeping them healthy will keep the rest of us healthy, reduce stress, etc.  It is a win-win all around!  (FYI, I love their allergist!  He is GREAT and works with autoimmune disorders.  I may even end up seeing him in future if need be.)
        
  4. That I will learn to just relax and enjoy this homeschooling experience.  I have a tendency to be "perfectionist" and push when I should back off a little at times, and I want to know when to push ahead and when to hold back to help them be successful.  I am learning, but it is not an overnight process!
Thank you all for your support, love and prayers!  They mean the world to me!  If you need anything, including a prayer partner, feel free to email me!  My email is always open!

What's going on in your area of the world?

Easy Pasta Salad (Egg, Nut, Milk and Fish-Free, Can Be Wheat and Soy-Free)

Easy Pasta Salad made with tri-colored noodles, Italian dressing and lots of summery veggies!

This is a great go-to recipe for large groups for any time of the year.  It is easy to make allergy-friendly (it is egg, nut, milk and fish-free, can can be soy - if you use all soy-free ingredients - and wheat-free, too (see variations below)),  easy to make seasonal and makes a ton!  What's not to love, right?  It is definitely a crowd pleasure, too (I almost never have left-overs when I take it to a potluck or get-together), so that's worth bonus points for sure! :)

This is not a recipe I got from anyone exactly, just my version of one I had at a party many years ago.  If I knew who made it first, I'd tell you, but I don't.  All I can tell you is that this is my version, and I hope you love it! :)


Easy Pasta Salad
1 box (16 oz.) of your favorite egg-free noodles like elbow macaroni, tri-color rotini, etc.
(Please make sure that you pick a noodle that fits your individual allergen needs!)

1 bottle (16 oz.) of your favorite Italian dressing
(Please make sure that you pick an Italian dressing that fits your individual allergen needs!)

veggies of your choice in the amount of your choosing, chopped into bite-sized pieces, such as:
red onion, broccoli, carrots, green pepper, red pepper, yellow pepper, cucumber, squash, cauliflower, radishes, celery, fresh peas (snow or sugar snap or regular), fresh/cooked-and-cooled corn
(Basically use any veggie that you think will taste good with Italian dressing and pasta that fits your allergen needs.)

  1. Cook pasta according to desired doneness (I prefer al dente); drain.
       
  2. Run the pasta under cold water until it is cool to the touch.
        
  3. Combine pasta, veggies and Italian dressing (to taste) in a large bowl, and toss until all pasta and veggies are well-coated and veggies are evenly distributed in the pasta.  (Note: I use about a Cup of each veggie that I want to add to the pasta salad, but you can use as much or as little as you like.  Also, when adding the dressing, start with 1/3 to 1/2 the bottle of Italian dressing, taste, and add more if needed.)
         
  4. Chill pasta salad or enjoy right away.  (Note: Pasta salad is best when allowed to sit overnight.)

Variations (Please keep all allergen needs in mind when using substitutions!):
  • Wheat/Gluten-Free: Make sure to use a gluten-free Italian dressing (or make your own) and gluten-free pasta and make as directed.
       
  • Soy-Free: Use a soy-free pasta and soy-free Italian dressing or make your own dressing (there are tons of recipes for them online, and I hope to figure out one of my own soon to share with you) and make as directed.
       
  • Seasonal Pasta Salad:  All you need to do is use or add the veggies that are in season to make this pasta salad seasonal.  You can use any combination you want in any amount you want, so have fun playing with flavor combinations! :)  I would not recommend using any veggie that is especially soft, though (i.e. avocado or anything cooked with the exception of corn) as it will definitely change how this pasta salad comes together, but even that is your call.  If you try it, let me know how it goes!  I'd love to know! :)
        
  • Even More Options:  You can change the type of dressing, too, if you wish to a Ranch, Balsamic, French, etc., if you can have them and don't like Italian.  You can even add cheese and/or nuts/seed and/or bite-sized pieces of cooked meat like ham, chicken, turkey, salami, pepperoni etc. if you like them and can have them.  Tons of options to choose from!  Have fun playing around with them! :)


Isn't it pretty?




Makes you hungry, doesn't it?

Go ahead and make some today!  You won't be sorry!  Oh, and make sure you invite some friends over, because this really does make a TON! :)

What's your favorite pasta or regular salad?

Have a great weekend!

~*~*~*~


Caroline talking with her hands.jpg
Caroline at the Mylan Food Allergy Bloggers' Summit.
Back-to-School is exciting, hopeful and sometimes stressful for those of us managing a food allergy, food intolerance or any other health condition related to foods.  Not only we must address 504 plans and policy to addressing the acute health needs, we need to load up on supplies, talk to teachers and our children about staying safe and healthy at school.

To keep my food allergic children safe at school I have my own little checklist of school prep that I use as my guide. Even if your school has already started, it is important to pause after one or two weeks and review your check list to ensure everything is in place and working well!

Here is my personal checklist--

Allergist/Physician Direction

*Confirm annual appointment with allergist to review food allergy status and for lung function test to update and discuss maintenance and rescue medications.

*Ask Allergist/physician for guidance regarding managing school, 504 plans and a Food Allergy Action Plan AND Asthma Action Plan.

Medications/medical forms/policy

* Medical forms-- Check in with school for needed forms regarding epinephrine auto-injectors and asthma inhalers.  Do I need physician direction or signatures?

* Medications for School--did I provide epinephrine auto-injectors and inhalers to my child’s school?

* Expiration date--will medications given to school expire during the school year?  If so, note on calendar date for replacement.

* Medications to be carried to and from school, on the playground, etc.-Did I make proper arrangements for my child to self carry?

* 504 plan--Confirm meeting with teacher, school nurse and all other teachers and staff who will interact with my child to establish annual 504 plan.

* 504 Plan-confirm all parties involved truly and honestly understand the plan and are capable of following the plan.

* Shelter In place--speak to school about maintaining a jar of Sunbutter and box of crackers in the event of a shelter in place situation.

* Allergens in the classroom--discuss with teacher how to reduce risk by reducing allergen exposure in classroom.

* Field Trips--confirm policy for managing food allergies on field trips--including transportation.

School Lifestyle

* Epinephrine and inhaler carriers--Order EpiPen® carriers and medication pouches.  Here is my list of popular EpiPen® and Auvi-Q® holders:  http://www.gratefulfoodie.com/list-of-popular-epi-pen-carriers/

* Lunchtime--order new lunch boxes.  My Back-to-School Everything blog post list some resources for lunchtime--including lunch boxes that have allergy warnings on them (http://www.gratefulfoodie.com/food-allergies-back-to-school-everything/)

* Snacks at School--Talk to teacher about maintaining a private supply of safe snacks at school for my children.

* Parties--discuss safe food suggestions for entire class.  Not just my child.

* Rewards--speak to teacher about enjoying non-food rewards, such as 10 minute dance parties, games, songs and the joy of paper airplane races!

* Inclusion--discuss how to keep my child included in class parties and school wide celebrations.

Celebrations and Food

sunbutter and apple snack 2.jpg
Here is a picture of our favorite school snack.  Sunbutter, Gala Apples and Enjoy Life chocolate chips.
*Create list of safe snack ideas--Confirm list of 10 items that I can share with other parents.

*Shopping for safe snacks--stock my pantry with safe last minutes snacks for my children.

*Safe ingredients--maintain a supply of ingredients to make last minute safe snacks or foods.

Food Allergy Education for Peers

*Be A P.A.L. or read a book to classroom--confirm date and time to educate students in my child’s class regarding food allergies.  My Back-to-School post includes resources for classroom education fun.  (http://www.gratefulfoodie.com/food-allergies-back-toschool-everything/)

I hope you enjoy creating your checklist/road map for a safe and health start to the beginning of school!

Today I have my friend "One Mommy" of There's Just One Mommy sharing some cute, healthy and fun lunch wrap ideas for you!
 
~*~*~*~
There's Just One Mommy.jpg

Get ready to wrap up a fun and healthy lunch idea for the kids! One thing I love about wraps is that they come in a wide variety. There are gluten-free ones and you can even find some made with spinach! (Love sneaking a little extra veggie in there!) Another great thing about wraps? You can put just about anything in them! Around here turkey and provolone cheese are a hit. You can also try a variety of other meats and cheeses, or jazz up that boring peanut butter sandwich and try it on a wrap. And, if you are feeling extra creative, you can cut those wraps into one inch slices and display them....

fun kid lunch ideas 
 Our caterpillar wrap consisted of turkey and provolone with thinly sliced carrot stick legs and a blueberry eye. He's walking across a delicious Romaine lettuce leaf and raspberry salad.  

  kids lunch ideas
Our cute little turkey was made with a spinach wrap. I used thin pieces of carrot to make up his legs and beak; his head is a grape.   

 Inspire me!
What's your favorite fillings when making a wrap?
