Ayla's allergies are bothering her again which means she's back on her strict diet. She can't have dairy, sugar, chocolate, dried fruit, bread or crackers with bleached flour or malt products, cantaloupe, bananas, canned tomato products, peanut products or citrus juice from concentrate. There, I think that's everything. It's all the main things anyway. Luckily she is so good about it. There is not much whining at all. If we're having brownies for dessert she might ask for one, but once she's reminded they make her sick she's fine. In fact, one time she jumped for joy when I told her she couldn't have a brownie, but she could have some applesauce. What a sweetheart! So, back to the point of this post. Once a week I have to buy a jar of cashew macadamia nut butter and a bag of granny smith apples, because it is the snack of the year. I'd say she eats a least two apples a day this way. Hopefully she won't grow tired of it anytime soon. If anyone has other snack ideas for her I'd love to hear them.
