CLK in the Kitchen: Gluten Free & Kids
I participated in this program on behalf of Udi’s and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. #udisglutenfree
“Curious Little Kid in the Kitchen” Series : If you have broken egg shells in the cookie dough, flour all over the floor and milk spewed all over the countertop it can only mean one thing… you’re cooking with kids! Congrats, because in between licking the beater and overfilling the measuring cups, you’re not only giving your child awesome memories, but you’re also providing a variety of learning experiences and valuable lessons. As a busy parent, I know it’s hard to find the time… and energy… to make homemade meals let alone bring the kids into the kitchen to help. Just know, your efforts do not go without being noticed. Not only can it spark interest in trying new foods, but bring kids in the kitchen can also serve as a hands on way to learn science and math as well! That’s why we’ve decided to create a series a family friendly recipes from our family to yours. With “Curious Little Kid in the Kitchen” posts, I intend to share recipes I’ve enjoyed making with my son, Ryan.
“Good moms let you lick the beaters. Great moms turn them off first!”
Have you or someone you know tried transitioning to a gluten free diet? If so, you understand that it comes with tons of health perks. Ditching gluten from your diet can result in better digestions, increased energy and focus and even relief from chronic pain/illness such as joint-pain or migraines. It has also been suggested that children diagnosed with Autism and/or ADHD benefit greatly from gluten free lifestyles.
With amazing products and even restaurants offering gluten free options, cutting gluten has become easier than ever without drastic lifestyle or habit changes. However, it doesn’t mean you should proceed without caution; there’s a huge nutritional difference in gluten free products so you have to keep your eye out and know what you’re looking for!
Udi’s Gluten Free
Their mission to provide the “best gluten-free food on the planet” has made Udi the #1 gluten-free brand in America. For kids eho are picky eaters, it’s important that foods that are good for them taste good, too! I would highly recommend Udi’s Gluten Free foods to any parent looking to incorporate gluten free foods into their child’s diet.
My family and I were recently given an amazing opportunity to try out a variety of products from Udi’s Gluten Free. We were blown away by all of their products. I’m the resident bread junkie of the house and was completely in love with the rich, hearty sliced bread (in Omega Flax & Fiber and Millet Chia) which made for an amazing for a toasted ham sandwich. My husband, ,after trying the Snickerdoodle cookies, proclaimed that this was in fact, his most favorite blog post ever and insisted the only compensation we should accept should be through more Snickerdoodle cookies. No kidding. My son, Ryan, aka “The World’s Pickiest Eater” couldn’t get enough of the Double Vanilla muffins or the Blueberry Cashew granola. In other words, we’re openly welcoming Udi’s Gluten Free products into our household moving forward!
Pot Roast Wraps
I used Udi’s gluten free tortillas to create pot roast wraps. Not only were they super simple and easy to make, but they tasted awesome. I wrapped shredded pot roast and slow cooked veggies (onions, celery, carrots and potatoes) into the tortillas and secured it with a toothpick. I then placed the wrap on a skillet and toasted each side for approximately 2 minutes until the tortilla was crispy and golden brown. YUM!
