As my challenges have changed since I started this blog, I am going to take it in a different direction. I am going to attempt to veganize things the easy way, with links to where you can buy all the things I use to make quick and easy family meals and desserts that are meat, egg and dairy (and occasionally gluten)free. I hope you like it!
So, as I explained last time, my daughter is allergic to eggs and dairy (and now nuts!) so our diets have changed a bit since she’s been on solids. We all eat vegan at home as we don’t have eggs or dairy in the house, and it has been relatively easy to adapt. There are lots of vegan alternatives for mince, chicken pieces, burgers, sausages and nuggets etc for easy meals, but where things become more of a struggle is when you’re making a recipe that traditionally uses eggs or milk as a main ingredient. When she was first diagnosed the paediatrician said she’d never be able to eat cakes or biscuits so I said “We’ll see about that!”. I already had this fantastic book so birthdays cakes weren’t a problem. I bought the other books in the series, about cookies and pies and we haven’t looked back. However, as brilliant as those books are, they are American, and while they do a great job of veganizing American treats, sometimes you yearn for something ….quintessentially British. And that’s why I made this. It’s hard enough to cook when you have dietary restrictions so I’ve made this as easy as possible…..Enjoy!
