The Gluten Free Kid on Halloween

Halloween is fast approaching. It’s one of my favourite times of the year. The kids and I always have a blast. I like to dress up with the kids, yes, hubby thinks I’m a tad bit crazy! But, I like to have fun just as much as the next kid does! You might be asking how we deal with Halloween when we have kids with food allergies. I have to admit, it was a challenge at first, but now it’s just become something else we just deal with. The boy and the girl both love Halloween … Seriously, is there any kid out there that doesn’t? Seeing as we started this gluten free, dairy free, soy free journey early on in the kids’ lives, it’s made events that surround food a little easier to deal with. Both kids understand that every year when we go out Trick or Treating 95% of their bags will be filled with things that they can’t eat. They get it.

I must admit it was not only nice to see family, but to spend a week in the humidity and the sun. In my part of the world, fall is in full swing and seeing the leaves falling off the trees is a tad depressing, but having a nice little break in the Bermudian paradise was amazing. And, seeing as my brother is completely gluten free, eating at his home was easy. If any of you have ever travelled with allergies or celiac disease, you know how hard it can be to assure that you’re safe in a new place, but my bro and sis-in-law had everything set up for us and I didn’t have to worry about the kids eating something they shouldn’t. It was truly a relaxing vacation. The first couple of times that hubby and I travelled with the kids, it was a nightmare. Continue reading “Jenny’s Gluten Free Vegan Pumpkin Spice Muffins”
