I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM, BUT… YOU CAN’T HAVE ICE CREAM?
Do you have food sensitivities? Can’t eat dairy, eggs, or any of the other top 8 allergens? Do you follow the Paleo Autoimmune Diet? A vegan diet? Or maybe just a clean diet free of processed foods, food dyes and other additives?
You may have thought creamy delicious ice cream was a thing of the past, but now...
....with these dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free recipes. What’s more, we’ll show you how to make delicious frozen treats that taste as good or better than what’s available from the ice cream truck… and they’ll be better FOR YOU, all made with whole foods without any refined sugar. You can even make these recipes WITHOUT an ice cream maker.
Dear Ice Cream Lover with Food Restrictions:
It’s hot. It’s summer. Enjoying a delicious frozen treat when it’s blazing out is one of life’s simple, sweet pleasures.
But sadly, some of us have severe food allergies and sensitivities, or suffer from diagnoses such as Lyme disease, Autism, ADHD, and autoimmune diseases. For those who fall under these challenging categories, food options can often feel limited and leave us (and our children) limited to zero treat options or indulging in treats that can cause major behavioral consequences, inflammation, autoimmune flare ups and more.
In a perfect world, desserts could be avoided 100% of the time. In the real world, people want the opportunity to indulge, especially during celebratory events such as birthdays, promotions, graduations, and anniversaries. However, treats seem near impossible when you have to avoid:
- Tree nuts*
- Artificial flavors
- Artificial colors
- Excess fructose
- EVEN Chocolate?!
*Please note: Our recipes use coconut, which is NOT a nut, but a member of the palm family and only distantly related to the tree nut. However, because of its name, people with nut allergy often feel they must avoid it at all costs. If you have an allergy to coconut, this eBook will not be suitable for you.
But what if you could have that occasional treat without fearing the inevitable repercussions from eating something that you can’t?
NOW... WE CAN ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM!!!
We Can ALL Scream For Ice Cream is for you if:
- You follow the Paleo Autoimmune Diet or an anti-inflammatory diet
- You follow a vegan diet
- You, a loved one, or multiple family members have different food restrictions or food allergies
- You want to eliminate processed foods from your treats
- You want a treat that EVERYONE can eat
- You love ice cream!
WHO WE ARE AND WHY WE PUT TOGETHER THIS eBOOK FOR YOU
Jennifer Robins – allergen-aware recipe developer at Predominantly Paleo
Vivian Cheng, Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN), The Real Food Guide
As SUFFERERS of a variety of autoimmune diseases, we understand how hard it can be to try and heal through food. We know that in the effort to heal leaky gut and slow down the overactive and inappropriate immune response that happens in autoimmune disease, choosing appropriate foods can be very limiting. We also understand that there are occasions that warrant a celebration, which in our culture involves food — a birthday party, a promotion, a graduation, an anniversary. In such instances, you have three choices: avoiding all treats all the time, cheating with foods that can be harmful and can cause inflammation, or finding an appropriate, whole foods based treat that satisfies your sweet tooth and allows you to feel “normal” without triggering an autoimmune attack. This is half of the “why” we wrote this eBook, to enable autoimmune sufferers to feel a sense a normalcy and belongingness with the occasional treat splurge while still playing by the rules.
As PARENTS, we understand that children deserve to be children. Ultimately, kids have even less self-control than most adults. When attending parties and other special occasions, telling a child “NO” can be difficult and outright frustrating. However, we know that when it comes to children with food sensitivities, autism spectrum disorders, behavioral issues, or other health challenges where foods must be selected with caution. We as parents, need to take what goes into these little bodies seriously! With this in mind we developed all of our frozen recipes to be top 8 allergen free and void of refined sugar, dyes, preservatives, and other threatening additives. So in celebratory times, these treats are “safe” choices and yet they can make a world of difference for a child with many dietary limitations. Our children are the second half of the “why” for this eBook and we hope you’ll take comfort in knowing that our most important loves have healthful treat options here.
WE WROTE THIS eBOOK SPECIFICALLY WITH THE PALEO AUTOIMMUNE DIET IN MIND
The autoimmune protocol takes the Paleo diet — a diet that eliminates grains, legumes and processed foods — a step further by also eliminating foods that are common food intolerances: dairy, eggs, nuts, seeds and nightshades. These foods cause sensitivity reactions because they can irritate and inflame the walls of your intestines and over time, they can increase the permeability of the intestinal walls to make the gut more ‘leaky’ and cause autoimmune reactions or other inflammatory conditions.
If you’re going to indulge, these allergen-free, and refined-sugar-free recipes will certainly reduce the chance of a bad reaction afterwards. To help you make an informed decision about whether or not you want to partake in a particular recipe in this eBook, we’ve even included an estimation of the amount of fructose per serving on each recipe!
