Last year when I had gestational diabetes, I had a real taste of what life is like for people with health-related eating issues–it sucks. Sure, there are “alternative” foods for all your unhealthy favorites (fyi–everything but Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches are CRAPPY), but generally speaking, most of the world, from restaurants to food blogs, don’t really consider these people.
I had an incredibly difficult time finding restaurants that even knew if their food was diabetic-safe or not, and forget about baking. And that was only for a few months—how the hell do people with celiac disease or dairy allergies function on a day to day basis without going crazy?
They or other people in their lives research their butts off until they find food that is safe AND crave-worthy. If you read my last post, you know that my sister in law is a celiac (allergic to gluten). She also happens to be a kick-ass person that deserves a delicious food any time of year, so I’ve decided to start including the occasional gluten-free recipe on my blog. This week–gluten-free world peace cookies (crumbly chocolate salty dough with chunks of dark chocolate). My recipe and food porn after the jump!
