It’s Time to Listen

Did you know autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the US, affecting 1 in 88

children? Chances are, if you’re reading this blog, you, someone in your family, or close friend is living
daily with autism.

At this time, there is no medical detection or cure for autism; so, parents are left to treat and
manage the symptoms. One way of doing this is through diet. Many families go on a GF/CF diet.
This means, gluten free and casein (dairy) free. This can be challenging because gluten is in so many
foods…especially processed and pre-packaged foods.

The Crockin’ Girls would like to offer some GF/CF recipes to help our crockin’ families living with autism.

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas  (The fajita seasoning would have to be GFCF. Some seasonings contain wheat flour as a filler. The tortillas would need to be corn tortillas, not flour, and the toppings would need to be dairy free sour cream, and dairy free cheese.)

Vegetable Marinara

Spaghetti Squash

Tiffany’s Kickin’  Black Bean Soup ( Make sure the seasonings such as the chili powder and cumin are gluten free. Also, make sure the vegetable broth is gluten free. Some broth actually contains gluten.)

Crock-A-Chicken (Make sure the seasonings and chicken bouillon are GFCF, many aren’t. Also, this can be served with GFCF bread, GFCF crackers, or GFCF chips. A lot of flavored chips aren’t GFCF.)

Spinach Salsa Chicken

Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oatmeal (Make sure to use gluten free certified oats. Also, use 100% vanilla, not imitation vanilla. It can contain gluten. And, use a dairy free milk substitute such as soy, rice, or a nut milk.)

Christmas in a Crock!

We had so much fun talking crockin’ with Emily from Moms Everyday! We talked about when our love for Crockin’ began, tips for those just pulling out their slow cooker for the first time, and of course our families! Hope you enjoy and learn something new.
