Holidays and Food hurdles9:00 AM
Why I need to devise special Foods :
The Holidays have come and gone. I hope everyone had a wonderful time. I know I did. We had my family in town for 12 days . I had not seen my Sister or my Parents in almost 3 years so this was very special.
My family lives 3,000 miles and states away from me so when I found out they were coming, I didn't say anything to my children at all. . It was very hard for me to do but I wanted to surprise my Children ,in which I succeed and we had the best Christmas ever. The food issue hurdles to overcome with my daughter's special diet for her medical issues, but I think I did fairly well with that.
My parents,having never experienced my daughters diet dove right in to learn what they could. With all the food surrounding the holiday gatherings it is hard when you cant eat any of it,especially for a child who previously could eat anything and everything. So for me,as a parent I made sure I knew the menu before hand and tried very hard to make her the food we had for her that was also in her allowed carb count. I made pancakes for breakfast, as well as biscuits , mashed potatoes (cauliflower), tater tots (cauliflower) and even some cookies and cupcakes with icing. It was very hard to prep all that and our stuff but well worth it. We had minimum melt downs and no sneaking of non approved food. So I would call it successful.
I used this recipe from Pinterest
Just a little bit of what I cook, and I am willing to share any recipes if you are interested. All in all I am very happy for how all the parties went. She did extremely well with it all. I cannot imagine not being to eat hardly anything with my family. I am so very proud of her.
