A friend sent me your website. Great info, and wonderful recipes! I immediately sent this on to my daughter. She has 2 young boys with Celiac, and she herself developed it after the birth of her second daughter. She almost lost her son because of missed diagnosis, and she researched until she found out what he suffered from- a very scary time. Since her husband, and her 2 daughters do not have Celiac, it makes it very challenging to make meals that cater to a strict Celiac diet, and are pallatable for them. This website is a wonderful addition to her arsenal for meal preparation! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!


Brittany November 23, 2010 at 2:41 am

Nancy- Thank you SO much for this sweet comment. I understand not knowing what is wrong- as I went through that myself. Im glad my recipes are helpful!


Alahnna December 1, 2010 at 1:27 am

So excited to find your site today! There's so many gluten-free or dairy-free sites, but not many that are both. I'm looking forward to exploring your site… and trying the recipes!

Thank you,



Brittany December 1, 2010 at 1:46 am

I agree Alahnna- There are not many combining both! (though there is a growing number which is exciting!)

Hope my recipes are helpful and bring lots of happiness to your home!



Melissa December 12, 2010 at 9:21 pm

Hi, Brittany!

I'm so excited and impressed with your recipes and website. Your mom sent my mom (Aunt Priscilla) the link after the big Thanksgiving get-together at Geneva on the Lake. Then my mom sent it on to me. Your dad is my cousin and believe it or not I babysat for you a couple of times when you were about a year old! Both my mom and I have had to eat gluten-free because of Hashimoto disease of the thyroid. I plan on trying two of the recipes this week. I think my husband will love the Cashew Chicken Curry. I'm not sure if my 4 children will but I'm going to try it out on them anyways!

Great job on the website!


Brittany December 12, 2010 at 9:26 pm

Hi Melissa! So cool- Ill ask my dad to show me a picture and point you out! :) Thanks so much for your kind words. and The Cashew Curry Chicken is a GOOD choice. Its up there as one of my all time favorite recipes- it has a very smooth comforting taste- I think you will have good luck with the kids. I have to also suggest the recently posted Pumpkin Cinnamon Buns and an older recipe- Butternut Squash Pot Pie. I have had several friend's kids devour it despite the vegetables it contains :)
Hope to meet you again one day! -Brittany-


Melissa December 23, 2010 at 12:25 am

When are you going to publish a cookbook? I want to try just about all your recipes and it’ll be easier than clicking through webpages.


Brittany December 23, 2010 at 12:43 am

:) Im working on a cookbook- though I must say it is REALLY hard to not just post every recipe I put together here. I get excited and want to share right away :)
and Glad you figured out what Mimiccream is. I LOVE it. But- if you do not have an issue with Dairy you could just use Regular Heavy cream if you wanted too (though mimiccream is far healthier :)


Megan January 9, 2011 at 5:29 am

Hi Brittany,

Thanks for your message! I am enjoying your site as well, and am adding you to my gluten free blog list.


P.S. Your dogs are cute!


Amy with Good Day! January 18, 2011 at 11:43 pm


Just a note to let you know how much I am enjoying your blog! I added you to my blog roll :)



Brittany January 19, 2011 at 12:13 am

Awww thanks Amy!!!


Sally Curtis Wimberl January 22, 2011 at 10:15 pm

me too me too! just today– I just LOVE all your recipes they are exactly the kind of stuff I love to eat!


John Maggio February 11, 2011 at 9:40 pm

can I get my picture on your site?




Brittany February 11, 2011 at 10:38 pm

HAHAAHAH! Ill get that taken care of Asap. :)


Lacey Wilson February 18, 2011 at 2:52 pm

Hi, I'm writing to make sure I found the right blog! A friend/classmate, Nicole, told me to check out her friends blog about gluten-free cooking…is this the right one?! haha…either way, I love it already!!!


Brittany February 18, 2011 at 3:30 pm

Hi Lacey!
I'm the only gluten free blog with a title like Real Sustenance- so I'm guessing this is the site (I hope it is anyways :)
Happy Friday!! -Brittany-


Brittany February 18, 2011 at 3:32 pm

Ps. I have a best friend – Nicole going to school to be a dietician- wondering if that's the same one you are referring to? :)


Lacey Wilson February 18, 2011 at 5:12 pm

Yep…thats her! I am in the same program! I was telling her, the other day, that I was recently diagnosed with Celiac (and I have Graves Disease as well). Thankfully, I have a masters in public health that is focused on chronic and autoimmune diseases so I already had a pretty thorough understanding of Celiac/autoimmune diseases, but had never had to live/cook/eat gluten-free…and i love cooking and baking has always been a love of mine.

Anyway, Nicole told me to check out your blog! I'm so excited to try your recipes and love looking at your pictures (photos are another love of mine, I spend too many hours in photoshop :) I'm set on making some delicious pizza and wings, I'm from south of Buffalo so going 3 months now without them has left days like the Superbowl feeling empty (no pun intended haha).

You'll have to stay in touch…I'm a personal trainer and am going to be starting a blog for athletes with Celiac disease. A training diet, in and of itself, can be difficult to manage let alone ensuring that its gluten-free and yet still FUN and something that people can enjoy and look forward to eating!!! Your creative gluten-free food expert input would be wonderful when I start designing different training diets.

I'm so sorry for writing such a lengthy note! I'm just excited to find another gluten-free girl interested in cooking and baking…its the simple things, right?!

Looking forward to following your blog!



Brittany February 18, 2011 at 8:13 pm

Here's my recipe for breaded "fried" Chicken. Chex mix is an easy answer to breading :) Its incredibly crispy.


For a great pizza crust try my friend Iris's recipe (She has a fantastic blog!) http://www.thedailydietribe.com/2010/03/pizza-ple…

You are so lucky to know as much as you do going into this! I know for some people it is overwhelming to say the least! Like you Im obviously crazy about cooking and baking and LOVE the fact that a whole new world of amazing flours has been opened up to me. Given the chance to be able to eat Gluten again and use regular white flour- I wouldn't do it.

I think you will find that the new challenge will be enthralling for you as it has been for me (Not that you won't experience many MAJOR flops- there is no way around that :)

Would love to help you! My husband is a runner and we were just talking last night about the ideal diet for an athlete!

Feel free to email me any time- ([email protected])

Great connecting! Tell my sweet best friend- thank you for sharing my site! xo, Brittany

I just came across your website and I am already excited about trying your recipes! The Twix recipe definitely caught my eye! I follow the Paleo lifestyle and am always looking for new recipes to try.

Also love the picture of your rat terriers! I have a very spoiled one myself :)


Brittany October 20, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Aww!! Love meeting other people with a rattie :) they are the best aren’t they?


Marty December 24, 2011 at 10:14 am

Brittany, I found your blog through Daily Dietribe, gluten-free but vegan, tho there are def some recipes I can use here. I applied to Alfred many years ago, didn’t get accepted but did at RIT entering the A&D school and after switched to the Printing School. It was a great place to go to school, and a nice distance from home in NE Vermont. I’d love to go back to Art school, but would only prob take classes. My main medium ended up being quilting, painting with fabric I call it. Always an artist!


Nancy December 31, 2011 at 2:24 am

Enjoying perusing your recipes. I noticed your entry from August about Hashimoto’s. I’m happy to report that, despite what most doctors might indicate, it is possible to kick. After barely functioning 8 years ago, I now work full time and am full of energy all day long. My markers have been in the normal range for four years. I only started eating GF last year so I’m excited every day to see even more improvements. Thanks for the website and your enthusiasm for learning!


donna December 31, 2011 at 4:05 am

Hi im usingmy tablet and lost the part of recommending a carind doctor who goesabove a beyond. Ihope u dont mind me posting it here. His name is dr craig rubenstein. He is a chiropractor also specializing in kinseology.he is located in medford, ny 631-696-2039. He goes way beyond any professional i hve used.hes caring and takes his time to offer all the time needed to find andfix your health naturally. I was dizzy for three years. Once dr rubenstein started treating mei have been dizzy free for fouryears!!!! God bless doctors like him. He also can be found on facebook at alternative medford chiropractic.thankyou.


Bobbie Gallia January 3, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Wow, what a great and much needed idea with the recipes and it serves many food problems so well. I have an intolerance for onions. It is a great problem since they are hidden in so many unexpected places as in mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, gravies, sauces, salsa, bouillon, soups, salads etc. I have learned to make basic recipes for most of these things or to avoid the brands that have onions in them and use only those that do not list onions in the ingredient list. Since I live in Louisiana, it is a problem eating out with the ” holy trinity ” (onions, celery and bell pepper) being a main item in lots of food. There are reataurants that will give me special attention when I tell them I react rather quickly and it will make an unpleasant mess on their table but I dislike being forced to have to say it aloud in a restaurant. I just wanted to say thank you for your help to so many people, at this later stage of my life, I know the importance of the gift you are giving to all of us.


nicky quinby January 12, 2012 at 10:10 pm

I know I’m echoing some folks above, but thank you for posting so many recipes that are ‘free’ of so many common allergens. I too have Hashimoto’s and some food intolerances and it has been very tough staying away from wheat, gluten, etc. etc. Please let us know when your cook book comes out! Curious–have you had success managing your thyroid with diet changes or do you also take Synthroid? Thank you again!


Sharon Baridon January 16, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Brittany, I’m trying to subscribe to your site but it’s not working! HELP!! Thank you!


Brittany January 16, 2012 at 6:20 pm

Hi Sharon! I know and am sorry! Will get this fixed as soon as I am able.


Donna February 22, 2012 at 4:56 am

You mention that you use the English Muffin Rings all the time for Burger Buns, but I notice you don’t have a recipe on your site, or I am missing it. Do you have one you can share on your site?


Brittany February 22, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Hi- I don’t think I ever posted a recipe no. My buns thus far have been more like rolls and not spot on texture wise to a bun. Which is why I have yet to post..


Brittany February 22, 2012 at 2:38 pm

Yep- I know this. :)
I like to list all options so that almost anyone can take the recipe and run with it. I listed the recipe as dairy free as there are dairy free options in
my ingredient list.


Elizabeth February 29, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that you have encouraged me that I can still eat normal and actually enjoy what I am eating with many food sensitivities. I’m sixteen years old and have been struggling with sensitivities for three years now, and just not found your website! I’m excited to get back in the kitchen and create some wonderful, delicious treats that you have come up with! Thank you so much for what you do! -Elizabeth


Brittany March 1, 2012 at 2:44 am

HI Elizabeth! 16.. is much too young! But just think how much ahead you will be (and already are I’m sure) in understanding healthy eating! You will come to find that wonderful food can be made no matter what allergy you have! Best of luck to you!! If you ever get stuck trying to find a recipe- feel free to message me! xo


Rachel S March 6, 2012 at 4:21 pm


Do you have a good recipe for biscuits? Just plain biscuits. I am looking for vegan and gluten-free. Thanks for any help, and thank you for this website! It’s one of the best recipe sites I’ve come across so far :)



Brittany March 6, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Hi Rachel! THank you!! I just came out with two baking books.. and I have a fabulous biscuit recipe in Part 1 that is gluten free vegan! (http://www.amazon.com/Essential-Gluten-Free-Baking-Guide-Part/dp/0977611140/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_1)


Britt March 16, 2012 at 4:05 am

Thank you so much for the website…I was recently diagnosed with Crohns and Celiac disease and my doctor put me on a no gluten/dairy/sugar/peanut butter/corn/chocolate/caffeine/happiness diet. I’ve never had to think about this kind of eating before and it’s difficult to know what to do and what i CAN eat…your website is helping a lot, especially since i’ve been craving sweets…
Youre a godsend! Thanks and hope you stay well :)


Andrea March 18, 2012 at 11:25 pm

Omigosh…a friend just told me about your site and I am SO excited! I have Hashimoto’s, too – I diagnosed myself in 1998 and I was officially diagnosed in 2003. I learned of the relationship between gluten and autoimmune disease in October 2011 and I’ve been mostly gluten free ever since (there were a couple of mistakes with things I thought were gluten free and a couple of all-out “I don’t care I’m going to eat it anyway” episodes). In the last few days the things I’ve been reading seem to lean toward needing to cut out eggs, dairy (casein anyway) and nightshade vegetables. I was wondering…are you on Synthroid or other thyroid replacement? I have this glimmer of hope that I might someday be able to get off of the medication. Anyway, I am so excited to dig in to your blog, buy your cookbooks and start cooking!


Brittany March 19, 2012 at 12:56 am

Hi Andrea! Nice to ” meet” you!
I take armour and I’ll be on it for life as my thyroid is partially dead. ( this is the case for most people) once the damage to the thyroid is done it doesn’t really come back to life. But I’m working on moving in the direction of a symptom and attack free life :)


val April 5, 2012 at 4:12 am

I am so excited, found your site earlier this afternoon and your cookbooks are on the way from amazon. The butternut squash pot pie is AMAZING the filling all by itself is so flavorful, thank you for understanding food and making life both tastier and healthier.


Brittany April 5, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Thanks you so much Val!! Hope you enjoy the cookbooks :)


Diedre April 16, 2012 at 7:30 pm

Hi Brittany,
Hi, I love your grain free recipes so much. Thank you for sharing your gift! I’m gluten sensitive and my reaction to Corn is even worse, so I need to avoid corn as much as possible. Even traces of Corn gets me sick and effects me for weeks. I wanted to purchase almond flour from nuts online but I was hesitant to because they process corn flour also. So I called them and they do manufacture the GF products/flours on the same line as the corn. I thought I would let you know because I do see you recommend nuts online and you also say that some of your recipes are Corn free. I do know that it is each individuals responsibility to check for these things on their own. I also thought it would hurt to put this out here. Thank you again for all the yummy recipes!


Rose April 24, 2012 at 9:10 pm

Hello Brittany,
I just found your website today from Elana’s Pantry post. I am excited to see some wonderful new recipes and another set of cookbooks to add to my collection. I love sharing with others at the MBS Wellness Center in Killeen. I am blessed to have Dr. Chung and am able to have her do the NRT (nutritional response testing). I can take in a sample of a flour,grain, or finished product and she can tell me if will affect my body. I have learned not all things labeled organic and non-gmo are….! Sincerely, Rose


Jenn S Yost May 24, 2012 at 11:29 pm

Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes. I was diagnosed with Celiacs disease about 9 months ago and discovered that I have some other food allergies I wasn’t aware of. I’ve been gluten, dairy, soy, refined sugar and caffeine free since my diagnosis and now and I feel so much better. It is such a treat for you to share these “gifts” with everyone so that we can explore and create amazing meals and desserts that we can enjoy. I truly appreciate your hard work and look forward to trying many of your recipes and enjoying them with my son and husband. I am going to be making a dessert from your recipes to bring to a party in a week. I am not even going to tell the people until after they taste it, that it is gluten and dairy free. Wish me luck.


Brittany May 25, 2012 at 12:30 am

Thank you so much for this kind message! Here’s to good food and having hope :) xo


Sylvia August 14, 2012 at 4:56 am

I am sooo loving your website. My daughter is recently diagnosed as gluten sensitive and lactose intolerant. I can’t wait to surprise her with your GFDF Authentic Oreos and Mozzarella Sticks. Thank you for generously sharing these recipes and tips. Are you able to recommend a site for ordering GFDF products online? We are about 2 hours from a good health food store.


Brittany August 14, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Hi Sylvia I like to order many of my flours from Nuts.com (Great prices and fast shipping!)


Kim Nona September 23, 2012 at 4:18 pm

Your website was recently given to me by my niece with 3 children suffering from various autu immune diseases. I have been diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome and have read that I should be gluten and dairy free. I am excited and ready to once again begin a new journey!! Thank for the head start!!


The Woz October 2, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Hello, I’m new to this whole gluten-free and “other-free” way of living. I was recently diagnosed with Stage IV Endometriosis and am trying to conquer it (or at least live with it) without having to take any form of medication, especially this chemo shot my doctor wants to put me on. I’m still in my beginning stages of trying to figure out what’s OK to eat and what isn’t, but have already found struggles with trying to eat the right way – your site gives me hope (especially with this gnocchi recipe that’s just been posted – I’m a sucker for pasta). I do have a question, several books I’ve been reading about and endo diet have eggs on the DO NOT eat list; but it’s not explained why…do you know why egg is left out of a gluten free, dairy free, soy free, caffeine free, pretty much everything free diet? Thanks!


Brittany October 2, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Hello! I do not typically buy into 1 diet being perfect for everyone! The very best thing you can do for yourself is take the time to really understand your body and what works for you and what doesn’t. Eggs are one of the most perfect foods nutritionally, but some of us are sensitive to them. So, your best bet would be to remove eggs for a few weeks, along with a bunch of other foods- soy, dairy, caffeine, gluten, grains, legumes, corn etc.. and the introduce them each back one at a time several days apart and see how you feel. You will know right away if your body is unhappy with any of them. This is called the elimination diet and is the only sure fire way to know whats great for you and what’s not. I have to be careful with eggs.. I can only have a tiny bit of them in baked goods or else I start feeling crummy. But then Duck eggs I have no problem with! Regular cows dairy makes me sick, but I can eat goat and sheep products all day long. What is best for you, is going to be different than what is best for anyone else! The only way to know, is to take the time to learn what foods make you feel great and what foods don’t! Good luck to you!!


The Woz October 5, 2012 at 2:08 pm

Thanks for the reply!


Heather October 8, 2012 at 3:19 am

I have to say that since I stumbled across this website about a year ago, it has become my go to site. I share it with everyone I meet that has to eat differently than the majority. There are 3 in my house that cannot eat gluten and 1 of the three is my youngest daughter who has type 1 diabetes, celiac disease, and hashimoto’s. It is challenging. I am always excited to see and try your new recipes as they come along. So, thank you for helping me to help her to feel included anywhere from potlucks to cupcakes at school birthday parties. Seeing her smile because she can have the ‘same thing’ as everyone else is a priceless gift.


Brittany October 8, 2012 at 3:28 am

Heather- thank you for such kind words. You melted my heart. This is exactly why I keep on creating. Much love to you and your family!


jen October 12, 2012 at 7:34 am

Hi! I’m a newbie to your work and excited to start visiting and trying your recipes. I’m a mother of 2 and the one in the family with the confirmed allergy. In your experience, is it a health problem to remove all wheat and dairy from the kitchen and cook strictly wf,cf? I’m newly diagnosed and I just don’t think I can tackle this thing head on having to cook separate meals for everyone. The main issue is cheese and wheat for them. Thanks” so happy to have found you. I’m sure you’ll be seeing my posts on fb soon. :)


Brittany October 13, 2012 at 12:20 am

Hi and welcome! :)
I think across the board most people benefit from having wheat and dairy removed from their diets. While I’m not a Nutririonist I can tell you that my best friend is a certified dietician and she has her entire family on a wheat and dairy free diet. You might find some health issues of your own go away!
I think making one meal for all is the only way to go! This way your child with the allergy will never feel left out.
Good luck to your family! Cheers to the good food and good health ahead.


Rebecca October 13, 2012 at 5:27 am

I’ve really appreciated your blog over the last few months. I’ve had Hashimoto’s since I was 23 (diagnosed in 1999) and the last 6 years have been really bad. While I’ve worked through lots of different medication and lifestyle regimes (less stress and I’ve even had to stop working) I’m only now really starting to try changing my diet. I’ve cut out wheat/gluten and soy and I’m going to work on sugar next. I was wondering if you cut out grains and nuts due to specific allergies or is that connected to your Thyroid?
Thanks for making these changes easier for me, your recipes and information has been great.


Brittany October 13, 2012 at 11:42 am

Hi Rebecca-
I cut out grains after a period of dealing with extreme inflammation and Hashimotos symptoms that were making me miserably sick. ( a feeling it sounds like you know all too well) Within a week of removing them my inflammation and pain levels cut way way down.

I have come to understand my health on a much deeper level and now know that grains were making me sick for 2 reasons. #1 I had leaky gut. #2 I had undiagnosed candida from the years of bad digestion thanks to the hashi’s.
I’ll probably be grain free forever- even if my body allows otherwise just because as a whole I feel best this way ( plus it makes fitting into my skinny jeans really easy!. A nice perk for sure!)


Brittany October 13, 2012 at 11:52 am

Ps. I wanted to mention I cut out nuts for about 8 months. During that period I think my body must have done some healing as after that point they were no longer and issue. When I eat them now I feel fantastic which was not the case for awhile :) so keep that in mind- eventually you’ll be able to add foods back. Don’t listen to what a diet tells you , you have to do- instead do lots of trial and error and you’ll slowly but surely figure out your solutions.


Rebecca October 16, 2012 at 6:44 am

Thanks Brittany!
After tackling sugar/fructose over the next few months I might see how it goes and then if no real luck add cutting out grains into the mix. I really hope I don’t have to cut out nuts as well. I’m vegetarian so I’m running out of foods here! The desire to feel normal again is pretty strong tho!

Wondering what your signs of inflammaton were? I have lots of the general symptoms (weight gain, tired all the time, brain fog etc) but I don’t have any distinct symptoms that I can connect with any foods. Even going gluten free hasn’t made a difference to how I feel (tho I know it now if I do accidently eat it). I don’t have Candida but have been told I have leaky gut. Any general improvement would be great, but with such vague chronic symptoms it can be tough to find the answer. I’m a nurse and not completely clueless to health issues and it’s still a major struggle. Anyway will try your trial and error theory…… and thank goodness for Cacao!


Barbara November 5, 2012 at 9:23 pm

Dear Brittany and Iris (please forward to Iris!),
I just have to tell you that the muffin recipe in the back of your cookbook is THE BEST gluten, dairy and egg free recipe I have EVER tried. Hands down, the absolute best. I made it for the second time this morning with the following modifications: I used 1 1/2 cups purreed pumpkin for the fruit, vanilla soy milk for the milk, grapeseed oil for the oil. And for the flour mix: 1/2 cup tapioca starch, 1/4 cup potato starch, 1/2 cup millet flour, 3/4 cup sorghum flour. I added 1 1/2 t cinnamon and 1/4 t of nutmeg AND 1/2 cup whole chia seed. Oh and I only used 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 t of xanthan gum. PHENOMENAL!!!! Totally devine. You would absolutely never guess they were gluten, dairy and egg free. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! From the bottom of my heart and my family’s very very happy bellies!. You guys are definitely the dynamic duo!


Brittany November 5, 2012 at 9:41 pm

Thank you SO much Barbara!
I actually developed that recipe so you left your comment on the right blog :)
Hope you feel inspired to come up with many more variations!!


Sheila Glazov November 10, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Good afternoon, Brittany. This afernoon, I sat down at my computer with at cup of pumpkin tea to spend some time looking for new recipes, blogs, websites and/or books that are FREE OF: Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Corn and Low in sugar. What a delight to find you! I am almost 68 years old and have struggled for over 10 year with with food issues. For women over 50, the normal answer was, “It’s your age.” Being mindful and cautious of the “Free of Foods” has made a remarkable difference in my life! I am an active author and speaker, who strives to feel “Brilliant” instead of “Bloated” to enjoy my family and career. It is so refreshing to find your website and Facebook page. I plan on will sharing you on my social media sites. I just created a Pinterest site and already pinned one of your recipes! Most gratefully, Sheila :-)


Brittany November 10, 2012 at 11:52 pm

Thank you so much for your kinds words! I hope you enjoy many of the recipes! xx


Danell November 13, 2012 at 5:15 pm

I have recently discovered your web site and look forward to trying several of your recipes!! I am gf, for a year and a half. Haven’t been feeling the best lately and decided to try cutting corn. My hubby is sugar free and our son…well we are trying our best to teach him the importance of healthy eating!!

Thank you for your hard work and dedication!!


Melissa November 18, 2012 at 4:20 pm

Hi, I’m dealing with some health issues and doctors don’t seem to find anything wrong. Can you suggest who I can go to for help? What doctors or specialists helped you reach a diagnosis?


Brittany November 18, 2012 at 9:30 pm

Look for a natural minded MD. Your best bet is to find one with a bunch of natural certifications- basically meaning they furthered their education after med school.


shelly November 19, 2012 at 11:19 pm

Thank you so very much for all of your recipes, I am so excited to try them all out, I am so very glad that I have found you.


Beth in TX November 21, 2012 at 1:27 am

Just found you. I’m going Paleo and taking the family with me. :-) I see all your pictures of doughnuts but only found the recipe for the pumpkin spice doughnut. Do you have any other doughnut recipes and I’m just not finding it? We went additive free in January and I’ve been promising my youngest I would find a replacement for doughnuts. He is allergic to artificial dye and the glaze on your doughnuts looks amazing. I’m assuming it’s probably artificial but hoping you’ll tell me it’s not. . . .


Brittany November 21, 2012 at 1:52 am

That picture I hate to regret was a beautiful photoshopped work of art :) It was a combo of real images and painted imagery. I have a number of donut recipes in my cookbooks but none of them are paleo. However- I do have big plans to make different varieties grain free in the coming months.


Natalie D. November 29, 2012 at 1:06 am

I love that I found your site. When I first went to a naturopath a couple months ago, I was not living life at all. I was too sick to do anything. He put me on the Candida Diet and I was just eating veggies and chicken, plain. I was thankful when that diet was over but I still wasn’t feeling well. It wasn’t until I had a food sensitivity test done that I was able to know which foods that I can and can’t have. I put the list on my browser and that’s when I found your site. You saved me!!! Now I can eat the foods I love with all the ingredients that I can have and substitutions on the ones I can’t.

I read somewhere that last year you had a coconut whipped cream recipe. I couldn’t find it on your site. I would love to have that as I cannot have goats milk. Thanks


Jennie Anderson December 5, 2012 at 9:35 pm

Hi Brittnay,

A friend who went Paleo recently sent me your website. I, too, have Hashimotos and had to diagnose myself through research. I got with a good nutritionist and she put me on my new, forever diet. I started in January of 2011. Never felt better in my life. There is so much literature about gluten free, but I’m grain, dairy, sugar, soy, caffeine and mostly corn free. I’ll be trying your recipes! Thanks for sharing them.



Lauren Smith December 19, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Britt! You live one hour away from me! It is great to see local people investing in the health of people in the WNY area. It feels a little like we are are a forgotten part of the country, that everyone here eats chicken wings and hot dogs, and all the healthy people live in California or something. weird… I use the Cali. example, because I have about 6 friends who now call Buffalo home, who are from California. :) IT is refreshing to see healthy thoughts and recipes from our area. :) Thank you for sharing your story and helping to heal the world.


Julie December 20, 2012 at 2:43 am

I have just discovered you and am already in love! Thank you!!! I have two Celiac children ages 7 and 11. My 11 year old is also allergic to corn, sesame, dairy, sorghum, millet, buckwheat, peanuts and the list goes on and on! What a treat it is to see sooo many possibilities instead of stumbling blocks! I am looking forward to taking a mini-vacation using your recipes instead of getting creative on my own!! YIPPEEE!!!! Love it!


Julie December 20, 2012 at 2:49 am

No way!!!!! I just saw your caramel recipe!!!! My corn free daughter misses caramel sooo much and I have failed with corn-free and dairy free subs. THANK YOU!!!! I may never go to sleep tonight. Seriously – THANK YOU!!!!!!!!


Cara December 26, 2012 at 10:59 pm

Hi I just found your website last week & am super excited to start trying some recipes. My 3 1/2 yr old daughter was very recently diagnosed with dairy & wheat/gluten allergies. I, myself have wheat/gluten allergies but to add in the dairy… I’ve been pretty stressed. I am wondering if its possible to substitute the almond flour in some recipes for all purpose GF flour or coconut flour as my daughter is showing slight allergies to almonds at this time? Also I am having trouble getting the perogy recipe to open up is there somewhere else I can look for it?
Thank you for all your hard work experimenting, it is helping a full time working mom of 2 out greatly!!! Happy Experimenting to you in 2013!


Kate December 30, 2012 at 8:39 am

I am currently eighteen and have had chronic pain for 6+ years now. I have been to countless specialists, had too many tests, scans, ultrasounds, scopes, blood tests, different diets, cleanses, fasts and every thing else that I’m sure you to are aware of. To this day I still have no real diagnosis. However I have been told that my symptoms are simply the result of: Headache, being tired, stress, the flu, a cold, an ear ache and even being pregnant! (Which i certainly am not). I have also being accused of exaggerating, making things up, doing this for attention and flat out lying. The stress can be overwhelming and at times i have even questioned myself as to whether i am just ‘making this up’. Through my own testing and trying i have found that i am very sensitive to gluten, lactose, highly processed, chemical foods and eggs. I cannot tell you how much of a relief it is to me to find your blog. Hearing your story and reading your recipes has given me a new strength and faith to keep persisting, thank you so much.


Brittany December 30, 2012 at 3:10 pm

You poor thing!!! Why would anyone make sickness up?? Its not fun, and it takes an incredibly tough person to get through daily chronic pain. You are one strong woman. If your not well, then screw what everyone else thinks or says..
As you are learning we are the only ones that really can look out for ourselves, it breaks my heart that at 18 you have already had to discover that reality. Keep on looking for your answers, you WILL find them. Xxxx


Rachel January 5, 2013 at 1:48 pm

I am so happy to have found your website, your recipes are awesome! I wonder, with all that you have been through with your health problems and trying to find answers, if you may know of some resources that could help me with my son. He is 6, and presents with the syptoms listed below. It just seems to be one thing after another and I can’t help but think it is all related to something affecting his immune system (other two siblings are strong and healthy). I don’t even know what type of Doctor to go to, our famiily Dr. and pediatrician think nothing of it…I am just so sick and tired of my baby being sick and tired. Any help on where to go for help would be appreciated.
Dairy and egg allergy
Wheat intolerance/delayed allergy? (cough/wheezy when consumes too much)
Difficulty swallowing
Sinus congestion? (snorty)
Frequent bloody noses
Frequent canker sores
Fatigue, always tired, dark circles under eyes
“tummy” aches
Trouble with bm’s…formed but soft, difficult to pass completely
Shaking of hands…overall, seems shaky at times
Meltdowns…often notice shaking of hands before these
Weakened immune system? Gets sick a lot
Frequent cough, especially at night-usually diagnosed with bronchitis if we take him in
Newest tooth decayed immediately upon coming in


Rachel January 17, 2013 at 11:30 pm

Would you please reply to my e-mail… . I think we will be making an appt. with a naturopathic dr. in Minnesota to do a blood test for food allergies, a stool and saliva test, and they recommended a celiac test. Curious about your thoughts…


Erica January 7, 2013 at 11:00 pm

Your website is AWESOME! I suffer from many of the things that you mention: thyroid issues (on high doses of armour and Sustained T3), have Lyme, stomach issues/ulcers, and candida. I am on a slew of medications – and really have a strong desire to get off of everything – as soon as possible. I have been GF for 5 years – but fell off the paleo wagon recently – and I totally feel it. I have a few solid doctors that I can pass along as well. I appreciate all your information – and as I go through it – i will rely on your site as a major resource. Thank you so much for your compassionate writing:) And sharing your experience. It is nice to know there is light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.


Caitlin January 10, 2013 at 6:51 pm

Hi Brittany!! Love the website! I would like to email you on behalf of the Greater Rochester Celiac Support Group but can’t seem to find an email. Could you email me at . Thanks!


Brittany January 10, 2013 at 7:13 pm

Caitlin! From high school? ;)
Sure- I will pop you an email today.


Brittany(2) January 13, 2013 at 4:03 am

Thank you so much for having this site!! I have been sick for quite a few years and no doctor could tell me what was wrong.. recently i was diagnosed with food intolerances of Dairy, Grains, Soy, Corn, Sugar, can’t have most meats and i’m sure i’m leaving something else out.. but now seeing your site has given me hope.. i can make real food!! for christmas i made several of the goodies off of your site and my family was eating my stuff instead of the tradiotional pies and things my mother normally makes. it made me feel hope. now i am 23 years old and can finally have my life back! thank you so much!! i love to bake and have been to experiment myself. Thanks again. God Bless You! :)


Jennifer January 22, 2013 at 3:28 am

I noticed that you use simply lite bars a lot in your baking. I want to try them, but I’m concerned about Maltitol. I don’t know too much about it- I tried to research online and couldn’t find too much positive information on it. Obviously, it doesn’t bother you. How did you decide it was okay to consume?


Brittany January 22, 2013 at 3:44 am

I’ve just started using them in my last few cookie recipes.
They are a great option for me as I can’t do any sugar with a glycemic index.
I’ve done some research on various sugar alcohols and don’t have a problem with them. I also don’t experience any negative side effects- so for a treat I have no problem indulging!


Denise Dreher February 7, 2013 at 6:15 pm

Brittany, I have had Hashimotos for at least 10 years and am still trying to iron out what diet I need to follow to obtain optimal health. I am just finding your website, and it’s looks wonderful! I am curious to know, if you are comfortable with sharing, what steps and resources you went through to decide what types of foods you cannot tolerate. I have read several things and do believe that gluten-free is a must, but I struggle with how strict I need to be with that. Any comments you have would be appreciated. Thanks!


Denise February 9, 2013 at 9:22 pm

Brittany, I just saw your Leaky Gut article. I do have the Why Am I Still Having Symptoms…book and just read it again recently. I was just hoping you knew of some wonderful, easy shortcut :)

You really do have a wonderful site here!


Penny Gayler February 8, 2013 at 5:44 pm

I was diagnosed with hashimotos, just recently had my gall bladder removed so i am on a gluten,dairy,salt,caffine and sugar free diet which is very over whelming at times. I was so pleased to run across you site!!!! ….. it caught my eye because my daughter is also named Brittany : )
I am very anxious to get your cook books. I love to bake and miss getting to enjoy an occasional treat. I just waned to say THANK YOU…THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart<3 sweet girl!


Jamarys February 19, 2013 at 10:09 pm

Hi Brittant
I made a sandwich bread from your recipe list and now I cant find it. can you help? it was a bread in which you used amys mix and chia seeds.


Jamarys February 19, 2013 at 10:09 pm

Hollis K. February 24, 2013 at 5:36 pm

I just wanted to say how glad I was to find your blog and your thyroid issues mirror mine almost to a T! It’s been 2 long years since my diagnosis and still finding my way out of this health mess. I am an avid cook and love to experiment in the kitchen whenever I can. Your ideas and recipes are a godsend, especially the baking items as I do not excel in baking on a whole.

Thank you so much for your voice to help others like us get some much needed food order in our lives! It is a lifesaver!

Looking forward to more of your wonderfulness in my inbox!

Hollis K.


Sharron February 28, 2013 at 3:42 pm

Hi Brittany,

I have just been diagnosed with Psoriatric Arthritis. I asked my doc for a diet and recommended supplements to help me to heal naturally and she didn’t have any advice for me. I started searching the internet and found out all the info about Leaky Gut Syndrome and put myself on the Paleo diet immediately. As I continue to explore websites with food recommendations related to Leaky Gut I see that I also needed to cut out fruit, nuts, seeds and egg whites. I was getting pretty discouraged. Then I found your website yesterday and got excited about the possibility of enjoying eating again! Thank you so much for taking the time to document all of this information that is so helpful! I have an appt with an Integrated Medicine doc next week and I am going to try to get an official diagnosis and hopefully get some probiotics and L-Glutamine (I see this on your website) to get the healing process started.
Thank you again so much! I have renewed hope!


Hope March 10, 2013 at 9:38 pm

Having recently been diagnosed with a host of endocrine issues, I’ve been advised to avoid grains and sugars. I have 3 kids (all with similar problems) and we all love to eat. Your recipes have been such a help. Dealing with thyroid, adrenal and other issues is not fun, especially when your kids have them too. Your recipes have really helped with all of us feeling “abnormal” and deprived of basic pleasures. I really applaud your hard work, dedication and words of inspiration for all of out there!


Melissa March 16, 2013 at 3:40 am

I found your site at the perfect time, I was frustrated with the lack of good recipes and with my diet having so many restrictions, I was focusing on all the things I couldn’t eat. Your site has really opened up a world of possibilities for me and has shown me what is out there. Thank you. I wanted to inquire about whether you might imlement some kind of rating system for your recipes. You have so many recipes and often times the comments listed below are people saying they can’t wait to try it or to thank you – which isn’t helpful when trying to make a selection. I also think others feedback can be helpful in modifying a recipe. I spend so much money on ingredients, often times to make a recipe that ends up in the garbage. The other idea would be where you have your recipes, you could have one place for rating the recipe and writing a comment and another spot for writing a general comment? I really appreciate all that you have done, you’ve really helped me not stray from my diet. Thank you very much! Melissa


Sheri March 27, 2013 at 4:01 am

Wonderful inspiration! Thank you.
Add me to the (ridiculously long) list of recently diagnosed (officially) with Hashimoto’s. It only took four years!
After a year of experiencing symptoms and visiting countless “doctors” (I use quotations not because they were not medically certified but because they were ignorant and uncaring) I was only ever given a basic TSH test. Even though I had done the research myself, and my symptoms were consistent with thyroid issues and my TSH levels were gradually increasing with each test, and I begged for further, deeper testing, they all told me I was within the “normal” range. I sought out a Naturalpathic Doctor whom I love and who has been working with me ever since. We have been working with homeopathic treatments and diet etc.
Now with my official diagnosis I am searching for an endocrinologist that will actually treat my Hashimoto’s, since the Endo who diagnosed me, gave me a photocopied handout, told me to get my TSH levels tested at my yearly physicals and sent me home (!?!?!?!)
Sorry to rant but it is so frustrating to finally get someone to dig deeper with testing only to have them abandon me (again). But the journey continues and your site is so helpful, thank you! It is easier knowing I am not alone.


Tresia March 28, 2013 at 12:47 am

What type of juicer do you use? I tried your shake recipe in my Ninja and it wasn’t smooth, but leafy. I don’t know of anyone who has one to ask.


Beth Peterson April 1, 2013 at 11:39 pm

I wanted to let you know how much I and my family appreciate your work and your willingness to share it, Brittany. After making your recipe for Flaky, Butter Biscuits and telling others about how wonderful they were, I’ve gotten requests for the recipe! I wanted to let you know I’ve blogged about it with a link to the recipe on your site — the blog post’s URL is http://wingedblue.com/blog/?p=53 in case you want to check it out.
Thanks again!! :-D
~~~ Beth


Julie Moore April 4, 2013 at 10:12 pm

Hi, My friend told me about your blog and sent me a little blurb from it in which you stated that your Hoshimotos was in remission. I have Hoshimoto’s as well and had no idea that it could go into remission. This is kind of a new discovery for me, both the fact that I have Hoshimoto’s and that it could go into remission. Is there a place on your blog that tells how you accomplished this? Is there any info you could share with me or was it just a strictly gluten free diet? Thanks for your web site. I can’t wait to try your recipes….the blueberry pancakes look yum! Julie


Heather April 5, 2013 at 4:10 pm

Hi Brittany,

Have you had any success or ever considered not using starch in the baked goods? I’ve heard of some people having difficulty with starchs. Are you aware of any substitute for starch in grain free, dairy free, egg free baking?

Thanks for any knowledge.



Brittany April 5, 2013 at 4:34 pm

A big chunk of my recipes are starch free. – Check out my chocolate chunk cookie collection.

There is no substitute for those that call for it as it plays a role in making baked goods light and fluffy.


Dr. Katie Corazzo April 24, 2013 at 5:11 pm

Hi Brittany,
I love your allergy friendly recipes!

I am a Naturopathic Doctor in Minnesota and have a lot of patients with dietary restrictions (namely gluten sensitivity) looking for great, healthy recipes. I am creating a resource page on my website for patients to use to help them navigate the wealth of health and nutrition information on the web. With your permission, I would like to recommend your site as a resource for my patients.

Here is my website if you want to check it out: http://www.balancedcarend.com.

Thank you in advance!!


Tala Bateman May 3, 2013 at 8:11 pm

Hi Brittany,

I’m wondering where I can find the recipe that was posted on Facebook for the Strawberry Streusal breakfast bars as I can’t seem to find them on your website.

Thanks :)


Brittany May 3, 2013 at 9:35 pm

They will be in an ebook that I will be sharing soon! ( within the next 2 months! )


erika May 11, 2013 at 7:54 am

bless you for creating this food blog. it’s the best one for me. I’ve been suffering (really, suffering) w/ gastrointestinal issues galore. I’ve ignored my dr’s advice to ‘deal with it’ by taking antacids the rest of my life. I’ve modified my diet down to gluten/dairy/….sugar..(I’m trying it’s hard!). All of these recipes not only sound delicious (and easy!) on their own but for my tummy, tum says thank you!!!

and genius on the peanut butter free truffles!


Saundra May 14, 2013 at 1:53 am

I have been reading your blog for about a year and appreciate all your recipes and shared information. I have stayed tuned in because I also have Hashimotos …. but also love to try some of your recipes. I have studied nutrition as it relates to my health for many years. I also have fibromyalgia, Epstein Barr, chronic fatigue, sjogrens, celiac; along with Hashimotos. So I read & study all the time. I am finding so many new blogs and websites popping up, as well as many books. It does make it difficult to sort through everything.
I do know that inflammation and toxins are biggies with autoimmune diseases.
One of the latest things I’ve read regarding Hashimotos is goitergens which may be found in cruciferous vegetables such broccoli, cabbage, kale, cauliflower, etc. In fact strawberries were also listed. These are basics for me. What is your take on it? Do you eliminate any of these? Since I don’t eat shade plants, this would eliminate alot of foods. Just looking for your take on this?


Anna May 16, 2013 at 8:01 pm

Have you considered grouping all these awesome recipes into one book? I would so buy it!


Lee June 10, 2013 at 9:05 pm

such a wonderful site with so many recipes. I just posted on Facebook so all my friends can check this out also. I was wondering if you have any recipes for a non-dairy mushroom soup? I have some mushrooms i have and need to use shortly…thanks a bunch.


Cynthia June 19, 2013 at 4:04 am

Hi Brittany,

I have Hashimoto’s, too, and after a recent hypo flair up, I’ve decided to take charge, again. I’ve been doing fairly well on medication, including a successful pregnancy. I actually tried some soy protein shakes, and that sent me into a tailspin. I knew better, but after an assurance from my doctor (again, I knew better), I gave it a try. I’m just hitting the tail end of the whole ordeal.

Anyway, I’ve known about the connection between Hashimoto’s and gluten for a while, but just decided to go gluten-free. I tried, unsuccessfully, to start last week, but ran out of food before the end of the week. I’m going to try again, but I think I need to prepare a lot better.

Thank you for offering so many recipes. My weakness is baked goods, so I’m sure I’ll be trying those sooner than later. :)


Nikki July 11, 2013 at 2:25 pm

OMG how cute are your dogs!!!!

You have really inspired me – as a new intolerencer (not a word I know!) your site has made me feel so much better and positive about changing my diet. After years of being fobbed off with IBS cant do anything for you, one doctor suggested cutting out wheat and dairy and only a week into cutting out both (I tried just wheat for a month with some improvements) I am starting to feel better and less bloated.

I look forward to cooking some of your recipes, with some translations – cilantro – coriander :p

Thanks again Brittany.


Michelle July 16, 2013 at 5:23 pm

We found your website while looking for a substitute for heavy cream. My 17 year old daughter has suffered from IBS for 3 years ( I feel for the previous poster!)–had to drop out of high school because her symptoms were so severe. No doctor (including Johns Hopkins) offered much help or hope until we contacted the IBS treatment center in Seattle WA. My daughter discovered that she was allergic to eggs, dairy, bananas, pineapple, cranberries, scallops, and VANILLA (weird one!). HIGHLY allergic to vanilla, I might add. Looking forward to trying some of your recipes so that she can get back to eating again! Thanks!


daisy July 31, 2013 at 8:43 pm

hello i noticed that you use almond flour is it possible to use soy flour and what is the difference between the two?


Michelle September 4, 2013 at 8:13 pm

Hello Brittany,

I discovered your blog looking for some healthier versions of the sweet treats I love so much. I cannot try them yet, as I am also on a medically imposed diet for my exposure to Toxic Molds. But I have gotten tons of ideas for alternative products that I can substitute in some of my own recipes. I look forward to trying your versions of my favorite desserts and more when I am better. Which brings me to my question….

I saw in your profile that you had been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and Candida. The treatment for those is very similar to treatment for Mold Toxicity. Unfortunately I cannot find a good, caring doctor that knows both the medical side and the nutritional side. I was wondering if you would be willing to share who your doctors were throughout this process. I am from NJ butI will go anywhere I have to for treatment.

Thanks again for this WONDERFUL blog and tasty alternatives. I love your writing style and your photos are super yummy!



Dana September 23, 2013 at 7:05 pm

My 2 year old was diagnosed with wheat, milk, and egg allergy a few weeks ago. But as we were trying to adjust to that, he became allergic to soy too. My daughter also has a life threatening peanut allergy so we avoid all nuts. My head is spinning. Is there something we can use to replace butter that doesn’t have soy? Does coconut or rice milk cook the same as dairy or soy milk? Thanks so much for helping me not feel hopeless in feeding my family.


Karrie Lawrence September 25, 2013 at 8:22 pm

My son was diagnosed with a gluten, wheat, peanut, and dairy Intolerance. I had taken him to a naturopath to find this out. I took him there b/c he had an adenoid. Before we even found out which food was causing the intolerance, she prescribed Probiotics, Vitamin D drops, Fish Oil (you can get them in gummy), and something called G.I. Revive. I noticed a MARKED difference in his snoring and apnea almost immediately. Now that you have found the allergies, perhaps boosting the immunity could help with a healthier future, perhaps reverse the soy at least..
Sounds like your house is similar to mine…cooking ALL the time! I use the almond milk and the coconut milk, and have had no differences with cooking. Haven’t done rice milk yet, but flax milk just didn’t seem the same as dairy milk in any situation. Once you get used to the diet (and the whole family should practice the same diet to avoid contamination and the headache of avoiding the contamination), it becomes a way of life and not such a big deal. Plus, I”ve noticed weight loss, hormonal balance, and better skin since I got off wheat and dairy! We;re borderline paleo diet here…thank goodness for Cermak grocery stores because all we eat now is fresh fruits and veggies. To make it easier for a child to go from goldfish crackers and pizza, try using a food processor to finely chop veggies added to rice, quinoa, or buckwheat. Your diet will expand, for sure. This website is great for helping that happen!


Karrie Lawrence September 25, 2013 at 8:24 pm

Thanks for your recipes! So helpful in our wheat/gluten/dairy free household! I’m recommending to my friends, for sure :)


abe October 8, 2013 at 5:38 am


Great website!! lately I been very cautious about my health because i been getting anxiety attacks out of no where and it is usually in the evening or after i eat something. I am not sure if i have leaky gut, but i belch a lot! and im dizzy a lot with a feeling of disreality. Does this sound like leaky gut to you or some type of candida? is what i am going through an autoimmune response due to a weak intestinal alignment? Love the recipes… thanks a lot!



Lisa October 20, 2013 at 9:21 pm

Do you have a pop tart recipe?


Brittany October 20, 2013 at 11:19 pm

Yes! It will be in my ebook coming out soon!


Bev October 26, 2013 at 9:28 pm

Hi! I recently bought your “part 2″ cookbook and am so excited about trying some of your recipes… have a question though. We can’t eat applesauce, but eggs are ok. For recipes like your yeast free bread, would you recommend I sub oil, or egg, or something else? And do I need to eliminate anything else from the recipe as part of the sub? (I’m reading pg 29 and wondering if I need to back out 1 tsp baking powder per 4 tbsp applesauce).

Thanks!! Bev


lindsey November 7, 2013 at 8:51 pm

Hi Brittany,

I’m brand new to your site and am so thankful that you’re willing to share your story to help others! I was wondering if you could shine some light on some issues I’m having, which are different than yours, but ones that you might be able to help me with or at least give me some direction. Through all of my research, what I’m finding that fits with my issue the most is a fructose malabsoprtion. All the foods listed as high FODMAP foods seem to bother me however, Ezekiel bread sits very well in my body and is actually one of my go to foods when nothing is digesting right. Another issue I seem to be having is certain foods that I’ll include in my diet regularly and digest well, will all of a sudden make me horribly bloated or nauseous. It started with avocados so I cut those out for about two months and right now they’re okay for me. Next was coconut, sweet potatoes, and now oatmeal (I think)! So I guess my question is, is it likely that my fructose malabsorption issue related to or a cause of candida, SIBO, parasites, etc and should I be treating the FM or something else? I feel like my energy is pretty good and I’m not achey but I did have a horrible breakout on the left side of my face that flared up about 15 months ago that took months to go away. There is a little patch that is still present but much better. Any advice is greatly appreciated, thank you!
