Holiday Limited Diet Menu Planner and Desserts e-book

Are you on a limited, allergen-free diet but want to enjoy the Holidays with delicious baked goods and foods you would normally eat on a “regular diet”?

Raspberry Cranberry Relish from Eatingwell.com

You’re in luck!  Because I created an allergen-free menu plan for the holidays plus a Just Desserts recipe e-book.

I grew up celebrating Christmas, but if this is not the holiday you celebrate, these menu planners and recipes could most likely work for any festive celebration and holiday.

The Holiday Menu Planner:

I think for many families, having a nice breakfast on either Christmas morning or another special day during the holidays is very common.  So I decided to include a breakfast menu in the holiday menu planner as well as a dinner menu.

Like the Thanksgiving Menu Planner, the Holiday menu planner is free of the following foods, so that it can work for almost any limited diet, including the GAPS diet:

no dairy -  (butter is used in some recipes but you can use coconut oil or another substitute that works for you)

no wheat or gluten – all grains and products containing gluten

no grains

no sugar - only natural sweeteners will be used, such as raw honey and maple syrup

Gluten Free Apple Clafoutis

Gluten Free Apple Clafoutis

no soy – no soybean oil, lecithin, and other soy products

no starches - if you can eat starches and/or nightshades, you can use potatoes in the roasted veggies recipe

no corn

no beans and legumes

egg-free options

What kinds of foods are used?:

Chicken, eggs, vegetables (non-starchy), nuts, seeds, fruit, honey, coconut, and other whole food ingredients.

Just Desserts Recipe e-Book

I got a little carried away with the desserts on the Thanksgiving Menu Planner that I decided that for the holidays, I would create a booklet of holiday dessert recipes.

I think when anyone thinks of Christmas and food, sweets come to mind.  I grew up with my mom making peanut brittle, peppermint bark and lots of other delicious desserts.  These made great gifts for friends and family and we also really enjoyed them!

I got very excited about making this e-book that I made a long list of candies and desserts that included in the booklet.  And they are all free of the following ingredients:

no refined sugar (only honey is used but you can use maple syrup or agave in place of honey)

Sugar-free Almond Roca Candy

Sugar-free Almond Roca Candy

no wheat
no gluten
no grains
no soy
no corn
no dairy
limited chocolate:
I made a couple recipes that have options for cocoa or no cocoa, depending upon your diet.  The only recipe that can’t really be converted is the Chocolate Cake. 

Free of Baking Soda and Powder: For people who can eat baking soda and baking powder, there will be directions on how to make the baked goods with them.  If you are on the GAPS diet or can’t eat baking soda or powder for some reason, I will have alternate directions for baking the baked goods free of baking soda and powder.

The primary ingredients of the candies and baked goods will be: almond flour and other nut flour such as hazelnut, coconut flour, honey, coconut milk, butter and/or coconut butter, spices, nuts, coconut, and eggs.
