This is a blog for my mom.

In 2010 my older son was diagnosed with Celiac Disease which called for a serious overhaul of our diet as a family. Removing gluten from our diet caused us to become more educated about where our food comes from, which foods contain the kinds of nutrients that are best for our bodies and, for me anyway, opened the floodgates to delicious, flavorful, healthy recipes. We are a year into our new way of eating and I’m more exuberant than ever about the power of food.

Of course, my mom wants to support my son and our new diet when we visit. And I want my mom to reap the health benefits of a gluten free, mostly vegan food plan. After a lifetime of cooking good ole country food, she feels a little like a fish out of water. I start throwing around terms like food processor, curry powder and coconut oil and her eyes begin to glaze over. So I’m going to make this easy on her. I’m sharing recipes that I’ve tested out and taking her through preparation one new ingredient at a time.

If you’re in her shoes too, welcome!  I hope we all can discover the joy in preparing new, exciting dishes using spices and ingredients we’ve never used before.

  • About This Blog’s Authors

    Even before his diagnosis of Celiac Disease in 2010, Kid Foodie was passionate about food. Although the diagnosis brought some restrictions, his appreciation and appetite for good, healthy food has only skyrocketed.

    For me, his diagnosis of Celiac opened up a world of food possibilities and a new way of thinking about what we eat. It has absolutely been a joy to overhaul our family's food choices and we all continue to benefit from it. We write this blog to help our family and friends understand how to cook gluten free and to provide them recipes to try out themselves.

    Kid Foodie now has his own blog:
