Part Two of How Not to Kill My Children

Best title ever, right? Okay, here are some more tips for what to do if Dennis and I die together and you end up with our kids.

Make sure all gluten-free food also says it is not processed in a facility with wheat. If it says gluten-free but processed in a facility with wheat, the kids can’t eat it.

We voluntarily do not feed the kids artificial or processed food. When I say voluntarily, it is our choice, but it’s also the best decision for the kids. They cannot have gluten, soy, corn, dairy, and specific types of sugar (Wren especially on this one), so attempting to feed them anything artificial or processed is a joke anyway. We don’t want it in their systems, their systems don’t want it in their systems, so we just don’t do it.

To make it easy, if you don’t cook it yourself from real ingredients that do not have an ingredient list that looks like an unfortunate 8th grade science project, we probably don’t eat it. Meat, chicken, fish, veggies, fruit, some nuts and seeds are all easy things to grab for the kids. And avocados, lots and lots of avocados.  Season them with McCormicks spices (not seasoning mixes because those can contain gluten) and you’re good to go. McCormick’s will list if they use a gluten containing ingredient. The words barley, rye, oats, and wheat (BROW) mean don’t eat it. So do all of these ingredients. Enjoy. The kids live on a whole, real food diet. Paleo or primal cookbooks are our guide.

Now I'm hungry for fish and avocados.  Hmmm...
