Vegetarian Gluten Free and Grain Free Christmas GF SCD

Christmas is nearly here so I thought I'd share with you some of the recipes which seem to be most popular around Christmas time. I'm way behind with my planning and cooking this year, I hope I manage to have everything done in time but this post will help me to find all the food I need to prepare.

My December TVK Box

I'm very happy with my December TVK box, especially the item in the front left corner! Even though this is my twelfth box, I'm still bursting to open it and discover what's inside! If you like surprises and haven't yet checked out The Vegan Kind, they do ship world-wide so if you're interested, please check out their website.

Nothing But

Recently I was approached to see if I would try out some "surprise" gluten free products so I was over the moon to discover that inside the slim, brown cardboard box were three packets of freeze dried vegetable and fruit snacks from Nothing But. If you read my reviews of The Vegan Kind Monthly Subscription Box, you may remember that I've already had the opportunity to sample two of their yummy products before, the Mange Tout & Red Pepper Snack and Pineapple & Grape Snack.

Pumpkin Seed & Fruit & Nut Chocolate Clusters GF

I think there's something very special about home made gifts and one of the major advantages in making your own chocolates is you can ensure that they are gluten free and/or dairy free. I'm really fond of fruit and nut chocolates but I've also been making my own chocolates with pumpkin seeds recently. In fact, I've become a quite addicted to dark chocolate and pumpkin seeds - you may remember my amazing bargain purchase of Landgarten chocolate covered pumpkin seeds which I talked about in the post about my October TVK box.

The Primal Kitchen Bars, Grain Free and SCD Legal

Not all fruit and nut bars are created equal as you will quickly realise once you've taken a bite out of one of these delicious bars. The Primal Kitchen (soon to be The Primal Pantry) was the brainchild of Suzie Walker. Struggling to find clean, healthy snacks for her daughter, she decided to create them herself from the fruit and nuts in her own pantry. The positive feedback she received encouraged Suzie to start her own business, which is now flourishing and expanding to a place near you!

My November TVK Box

Two TVK boxes arrived at my door this time - oh my! Check out the beauty box underneath, I can't reveal the contents since it's a Christmas present but if you're interested in getting one for yourself, you need to subscribe here. The contents of my regular box were well up to expectations and of great quality - which isn't a surprise because the contents of all the boxes I've received to date have never failed to please!

Vegetable Pot Pie GF SCD

There's nothing better than to come home to a warming and comforting pot pie, especially during the cold Winter months. This grain free vegetable pie features a crumbly crust made from almond flour and extra virgin olive oil and a selection of winter vegetables bursting with colour and taste all immersed in a sweet onion and herb gravy and not a grain in sight.
