Wheat Free Wednesday - 4/13

Yes...I know...it's not Wednesday anymore. Rebound migraines - need I say more?? I hope you all had a wonderfully warm Wednesday!  Since we have not seen snow here for over a week, I’m officially changing my diet to warm weather foods.  If you want to infer that because of the warm weather I’ve decided to be a little more aggressive with the weight loss settings in my meal planning, so be it…   ...more

Unfortunately, the "real" one contains no-no's like onion soup mix (contains monosodium glutamate, or "MSG"), cream of mushroom soup (casein), and red wine (the salicylates in red grapes make my son hyper). So I had to make some stuff up along the way. ...more
