I know that I’ve openly expressed my pain and disdain at cooking multiple meals the past few weeks. I won’t rehash old wounds.
Instead, I’m sharing something positive–a meal that EVERYONE can love and EAT that tastes GREAT!!
I added all the big caps locked words for emphasis that my life has finally changed in a positive direction when it comes to food. I’ve worried that I wouldn’t ever eat anything tasty again (and really I’m just starting off my week full of withdrawals from my lack of ice cream consumption)–but I found something.
The thing I LOVE about this meal is that it can all be thrown into the crockpot or slow cooker and I can forget about it.
That is a rare and wonderful thing in the world of food allergies and intolerances. I always feel like I am cooking. And if I don’t feel like cooking I better have enough energy to go through the endless aisles of food at the store to find something I can eat. And if I don’t feel like going through aisles and aisles at the store than I better plan on forgetting it. Usually when it comes to that I just opt out of eating food because not eating sounds like a better option than the work it takes to eat. Not eating doesn’t require any thought, effort or label reading.
This maple dijon chicken and rice is gluten free and FODMAP friendly. And I love the taste that it has and the fact that I can feed it to the whole family and it gets rave reviews.
