Hi! My name is Nancy and I am the mother of a child who has food allergies -wheat, soy, dairy, chicken and beef. When I found out I did what any parent would do -I stocked up on cookbooks dedicated to those with allergies and then cleaned out the kitchen of all the offending foods. Afterall, we weren't going to eat lasagna in front of our son while he snacks on a rice cake.
Now nearly a year into this I've figured out how to alter recipes, seperate ingredients and give my family food that they all love (and can eat) without me having to make multiple meals.
Please take advantage of what I've learned!

Rice Noodle Wraps
This recipe is free of: soy, gluten, dairy, meat, wheat, nuts Contains: rice
This recipe came out of pure and total creativity...and a little boredom but it works. Better than that my son LOVED it!!
1 avocado sliced
1 small yellow bell pepper, julienned
1 medium carrot, julienned
1 small cucumber, julienned
a handful of mint
a handful of broccoli sprouts
16 pieced rice paper for rolling
3 oz rice noodles
optional sauces for dipping:
sunflower butter (for the kids)
Asian Coconut stir fry by World Foods (selected because it's soy free)
Cook noodles in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Soften rice paper if bought dried.
Assemble by adding a little of everything to the middle of the rice paper. Fold over edges and roll tight. Serve.
...the fried version is easier to eat since the rice paper gets a little crispy!
