Their daughter, as it turns out, also has fibromyalgia, and she and her son generally eat both gluten-free and dairy-free. She and her mom went shopping at Whole Foods, and then she came and cooked all sorts of things that I could eat. I was so grateful for their kindness. They even got me a gluten/dairy-free cupcake since I couldn't eat the birthday cake! Chocolate! I have to say, it was pretty tasty. It's a good thing they only got one.
They came up with some chips that were really good, too.
And my new favorite salad dressing:
|Organicville Herbes De Provence|
Although at Food Renegade they examine the ingredients of a similar dressing (Organicville Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinaigrette) and reject it for not being as healthy as it claims to be, I found it delicious and still healthier than most things you will find on a grocery store shelf. Happily for me, they sent the extra home with me. Yummy salad, here I come.
