Healthy Carob Protein Balls

Skin Friend: Dairy free, gluten free, low amine, low salicylate. This blog is not a failsafe blog, but this recipe is!
"These chewy carob balls are full of protein, they are low in sugar and contain a special ingredient ... White beans are a great eczema-friendly alternative to dates and they help to hold these balls together. Due to these carob balls being loaded with fibre and protein, they can help to keep your blood sugar levels stable, making them a great afternoon snack." [recipe link]

Chicken Casserole with Savoury Biscuits

Cooking For Oscar: The inspiration for this dish came from a recipe called Hungarian Chicken, which has biscuits (scones) cooked on top. Its a really nice dish with paprika, tomatoes, capsicum and other things we can’t have. I decided to use the biscuit concept with a chicken casserole and to make savoury scones (i.e. hidden vegetables). The scones in the original recipe are the usual round shape, but as Oscar was helping me make them we used people and dog shapes. [recipe link]

Breastfeeding and failsafe

It is World Breastfeeding Week is from the 1-7th August. There are a lot of mum on the Failsafe Facebook groups doing the failsafe diet for their breast fed babies. Navigating failsafe for 2 is a different ballgame. Recording and working out possible reactions from what mum has consumed and from how long ago can be difficult.
The Fed up web site has an informative fact sheet on breastfeeding and failsafe covering reader reports, weaning foods for failsafe babies, more information, and Sue Dengate media articles (Restless Babies). [read more]
