People regularly ask me how I feed our family affordably, while still accommodating food allergies. We’ve had various seasons of health where individuals have needed to avoid dairy, eggs, or nuts, in addition to gluten. We also have one individual that has been very sensitive to sweeteners. Right now, most of our family is

In talking with a local friend awhile back, we
