A favorite of teenage boys, lazy college students, and party food lovers across the nation. ๐ŸŽ‰ The greasy, overly priced, microwavable, pizza stuffed pillows we all know and love: Totino's Pizza Rolls, NOW made gluten-free, vegan, allergy-free, and a whole lot healthier! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ * Story time: Back in the day, pre-celiac and such" I ate my share of pizza rolls, but my older brother, he loved them and still does. If you didn't know, my brother and I are currently roommates and I, of course, am the one to do the grocery shopping.

Happy August 1st! (Or more like "omg...how could it possibly be August!?) ๐Ÿ˜ต This shock of reality definitely calls for some ice cream, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿฆ With one of my favorite flavor combos: tahini and chocolate! ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฅ„ * This is my "4-Ingredient No-Churn Vegan Tahini Chocolate Ice Cream"! The first legit recipe for scoopable ice cream to grace the recipe index on Strength and Sunshine (it's about time, eh?) ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‹ * Of course I'm also reminiscing about making hand-cranked old fashioned "real deal" ice cream as a kid, in the post! I remember it being so fun (and hard work to crank that churn!) ๐Ÿ˜‚ We used ice, salt, sugar, and cream and I remember it tasting SO crazy fresh and nothing like store-bought (obviously)! ๐Ÿ˜œ Did you ever get a chance to make real ice cream like that, with an old-fashioned wooden churn? ๐Ÿค” (Reminds me of something from Little House on The Prairie, hahaha!) ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ * But this ice cream is just as simple in ingredients and just less physically taxing for little hands (no churning required!) ๐Ÿ‘Œ I whipped out my @kitchenaidusa stand mixer and added: @edwardandsons canned coconut milk @soomfoods tahini Unsweetened cocoa powder @swervesweetie for some sweet sugar-free love! (p.s. again, can't forget the @enjoylifefoods mini chocolate chips!) * So join in and freeeeze up some ice cream with me!

If you're going to be a monster and eat a savory breakfast, might as well be POTATOES! ๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿฅ” Good ole' country rustic seasoned breakfast potatoes with peppers and onions, in the @lodgecastiron of course! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿฅ”๐ŸŒถ * A breakfast side dish or a dinner side dish, even a filling (breakfast tacos anyone?)

Monday doughnuts, anyone? ๐Ÿค” Sounds like a plan to me! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿฉ And they're powdered with @swervesweetie fo you can like the sweet goodness off you're fingers like a kid eating those mini donettes (I know you know what I'm talking about!) ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜Ž * These "Maple Blueberry Powdered Sugar Doughnuts" are basically like pancakes...in doughnut form! Using the plantain method so you can eat this small batch yourself or possibly share (if you're feeling generous!) ๐Ÿ˜‚They're gluten-free, grain-free, vegan, paleo, and allergy-free!

CUCUMBERS! Although I eat cucumber literally every day of my life, year-round, they are in abundance in the summer months! So what's the best way to use them all up ๐Ÿค” (if you're lucky enough to grow your own!) ๐Ÿ˜ * Gurkensalat! Aka: That old-fashioned vinegar-based German Cucumber Salad! ๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿฅ— My German grandma never hosts a family gathering without her cucumber salad out on the table! ๐Ÿ‘ต Crunchy, sweet, and vinegary! It's just a delicious marinated combo of cucumber, thinly sliced onions, vinegar, cold water, some sugar, salt, and dill! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคค * I had to recreate this recipe myself and make my German roots proud!

Number 3 in the summer side dish TRIFECTA! ๐ŸŽ‰ Last year I allergy-free-inized the Classic American Potato Salad and Macaroni Salad. This year I had to give the Classic American Coleslaw the Strength and Sunshine treatment! ๐Ÿ‘Œ * Do you even like coleslaw? ๐Ÿค” I think it's one of those "love it or hate it" dishes, but I've always enjoyed it! Your summer bbq plate is not complete without a scoop of the classic slaw! ๐Ÿ˜‹ And of course, growing up, that coleslaw was always the store-bought container of sweet mayo drenched cabbage (which tasted amazing...no shame!). ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘ * I cleaned this one up a bit, totally gluten-free, vegan, and allergy-free, PLUS it's super easy and I give you two options (if you're feeling ambitious or lazy). ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿ˜ 1: Chop up your own heads of cabbage and carrots OR 2: Use pre-cut, cause y'all don't have time for that! either way you'll have delicious results! After that, all you need is some allergy-free mayo like @justforall or @traderjoes , a drizzle of vinegar, dash or @swervesweetie sweetener, and a pinch of black pepper to tie it all together! ๐Ÿค— * Easy peasy and a lifesaver if you need a last minute side dish to bring to those ubiquitous summer bbqs! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Full recipe on the blog today (link in bio!) โ˜๏ธ Go make some (bonus: so good on sandwiches too!) ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿฝโ˜€๏ธ * #coleslaw #summersalad #cabbage #sidedish #glutenfree #vegan #dairyfree #eggfree #soyfree #nutfree #top8free #allergyfree #celiac #foodallergies #feedfeed #autoimmunedisease #f52grams #glutenfreelife #glutenfreevegan #vegankids #kidapproved #njeats #goodmoodfood #glutenfreefood #glutenfreeliving #celiacdisease #healthyfamily #glutenfreeblogger #cookingwithkids #howisummer
Raise your hand if you grew up eating Campbell's canned "pork & beans"....anyone? ๐Ÿค” Just me? Haha, no shame! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘Œ My mom would heat up those cans of beans, add additional ketchup and pancake syrup, and serve them up EVERY time we were grilling for dinner. ๐Ÿ˜‹ * Those beans actually have a "may contain wheat" warning and have a host of...not so lovely ingredients! Have no fear...I whipped up the BEST remake and 1000x better than anything from a can! We're getting the rustic @lodgecastiron out for these old-fashioned vegan baked beans (gluten-free, allergy-free) and o so comforting! Sweet, smoky, they just melt in your mouth! ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค * If you're never had homemade baked (legit baked) beans, then my foodie friends, it's time to change that! ๐Ÿ‘Recipe now up on the blog (link in bio!) ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿด (side note: spoon or fork for bean eating?) ๐Ÿฅ„ * #bakedbeans #beans #countrycooking #comfortfood #glutenfree #vegan #dairyfree #eggfree #soyfree #nutfree #top8free #allergyfree #celiac #foodallergies #feedfeed #foodandwine #f52grams #glutenfreelife #glutenfreevegan #mysouthernliving #castironcooking #njeats #goodmoodfood #glutenfreefood #glutenfreeliving #celiacdisease #healthyfamily #glutenfreeblogger #kidapproved #vegankids
Rolllllin' into the summer full force with the easy VEGAN lobster rolls! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Guys! We are obsessed with this recipe in the Strength and Sunshine fam! My mom, with her shellfish allergy (and celiac), misses all the seafood dishes she used to love many moons ago ๐Ÿ˜ญ and I just love recreating all these East Coast summer classics to be allergy-free AND with the trusty hearts of palm again for our mock lobster! My mom has been begging me for the recipe, so Iโ€™ll be a good daughter and finally publish it, haha! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ * No cooking required either! Just mix together the @reesespecialtyfoods hearts of palm, some celery, scallions, lemon juice, spices, @justforall mayo, chill and serve in @meltorganic buttered and toasted @ener_g_foods rolls with some @jacksonshonest potato chips for a perfect easy recreation of Maine's classic fast food comfort food! ๐Ÿคค๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ * Lobster rolls are essentials summer in a bun and now we can all indulge in the "seafood" goodness! ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰ Celiac and food allergies never get in the way over here!

Clam Chowder. O boy, I grew up eating the good 'ole canned stuff, unless we were down the shore. It was my brother's favorite "soup" (is chowder soup?). But what if you're vegan, dairy-free, have a shellfish allergy (like my momma)? How's one to have the cozy New England summer classic? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” * Well you know I never let you down! This is where some vegan trickery comes into play with @reesespecialtyfoods hearts of palm! Hearts of palm are always a great plant-based "meat" substitute (and cheese sub in my vegan mozzarella sticks!), but the texture is so perfect for seafood! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ * There's no dairy half and half here either, we're using some coconut milk! It's packed with all the veggies too: potatoes, corn, celery. It is SO quick to whip up, you just need to heat it all in a pot (if you use my lazy girl hack and use canned white potato...) No shame! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Serve it as an appetizer, entree, side dish or a quick and easy summer lunch! ๐Ÿ˜‹ * So, who want's some? Go check out the recipe on the blog (link in bio!) ๐Ÿ‘† BTW: New England Clam Chowder > New York Clam Chowder....by a long shot! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿฅฃ * #StepOutOfYourComfortFood #ad #glutenfree #vegan #dairyfree #eggfree #soyfree #nutfree #top8free #allergyfree #celiac #foodallergies #feedfeed #foodandwine #f52grams #glutenfreelife #glutenfreevegan #heartsofpalm #clamchowder #clams #goodmoodfood #glutenfreefood #vegansoup #newengland #glutenfreeliving #celiacdisease #healthyfamily #glutenfreeblogger #beautifulcuisines #iamwellandgood
Chicken tenders! I always think of them as the "adolescent" version of chicken nuggets. Nuggets are for little kids, tenders for the preteen/teen, and then you can graduate to full on chicken breasts! Haha! (No, they're all good options for all ages!) ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜‚ * Not only am I sharing this tortilla chip crusted chicken tender recipe using @gardenofeatinchips @justforall @colemannatural in the @lodgecastiron on the blog today, but I get a bit ranty about my feeling on "kid's menus" and the subpar options for children in restaurants. I have strong feelings on this (always have) and I only touched the surface of this topic. ๐Ÿค” * But first things first: a child will always be a picky eater if they never get to experience a wide variety of real foods. They need all the options, just like an adult and they deserve good nutrition, taste, and meals (not some old slimy grilled cheese from the back of a restaurants freezer). ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ‘Ž * Especially when it comes to food allergies, if a kid's menu only has they typical carb+sugar+fat laden options, children with food allergies will HAVE to order from the adult menu (as they should). Honestly, I think kid's menus should just be banished. Kids and adults should have access to all options, and should be able to try new things in new ways and not get sucked into an unhealthy American mass-produced food spiral of culinary sadness...๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜ญ * I digress! What are you feelings on all this? ๐Ÿค” You can read about it more and get this recipe for upscaled chicken tenders on the blog today!

Y'all know I don't post on the blog (or IG) on Tuesday, so we're celebrating today...right now...why, you're asking? ๐Ÿค” IT'S STRENGTH AND SUNSHINE'S 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY/BIRTHDAY!!!! Can I believe it's been 5 years? ๐Ÿ˜ฎNo...and my o my, how so many things have changed, how my life has changed, how everything has changed just because I made the decision to jump into the blogging space I had already loved, because I wanted to be a greater part of it (not just a reader), and thus change the trajectory of my life on a random day in June (26th), the summer before my senior year of high school was to begin. ๐Ÿ˜„ * SOOO much has changed in the blogging, online, influenceing space. You guys know I'm so old school and a late adapter to just about every change (I'll drag my feet until feet can no longer be dragged). I've built up this brand through some of the most important, stressful years of my life. Education always has to come first, but now I'm on the cusp of having the time of focus where I want to focus my time and energy. There is so much to think about and decide over the next year, but don't worry...Strength and Sunshine isn't going anywhere. (You can read more of my "looking ahead" rambles on the blog post!) ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜† * My Strength and Sunshine friends also know that the only way to celebrate is with SPRINKLES and that means FUNFETTI! We're breaking out the @unprocessyourfood mini DASH waffle maker again to make the ultimate mini waffle funfetti cake to celebrate this momentous milestone! Sprinkles, fun, and vegan buttercream frosting galore!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿญ * Will you come celebrate with me (a day early) and have a slice of cake?

What I always call the "Trifecta of Summer Sides". Potato salads, pasta salad, and coleslaws. This year I whipped up a super easy macaroni-style pasta salad with some wonderfully sweet summer corn. Just 7 ingredients (including black pepper...so kinda 6), it's all a matter of boiling some @ronzonipasta gluten-free macaroni and then just mixing everything together in the same pot (and chilling to serve). ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‘Œ * I made this a month or two ago because I was craving some vegan mayo (haha!) My favorite is the one from @traderjoes , but since I don't live near one (sadness) that's not always possible and instead I recommend using @justforall. Both of these vegan mayos are also soy-free which is a must over here...so go with those my top 8 allergy people! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‰ (Another lazy hack note: No fresh corn? Use @delmontefresh canned sweet yellow corn ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘ Yโ€™all know I have a weird love affair with canned vegetables ๐Ÿ˜‚ So good ๐Ÿ˜Š) * This week I am definitely feeling the slow summer rhythms coming out. The internet and social media seems so much quieter the last few days and now that the weather is actually HOT summer weather...ah, it feels good! Btw, first official day of summer is TOMORROW so....let's celebrate with all the summer eats, okay? ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ– * You can grab this recipe for your next summer cookout on the blog!

All the summer and Jersey vibes today! As much as we can dislike about NJ, there is too much to love about this state for those of us born and raised. Jersey summers mean going "down the shore" for those boardwalk eats, like greasy sausage and pepper sandwiches, Kohr's frozen custard, pizza, lemonade, seafood, fudge, all the curly fries, the list goes on. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฅค * Whenever I think of stepping on the boardwalk, the first thing I think about is the assaulting aroma of those sausage and pepper sandwiches. It's like all of New Jersey + Italian + Obnoxious Pride all wrapped into one scent. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿ‘Œ * To recreate my own little piece of Jersey Shore love, for us Jersey celiacs, vegans, and food allergy folks, here's a little taste of the NJ pride we can enjoy right at home, anytime of year, day, location...and like 100000x healthier! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘ * No matter who you are, click over to the blog and make these sammies!

Literally though, grilled chicken is LIFE during the summer. While I usually just flavor things up with my go-to seasoning rub, recipes like this bold and beautiful peri-peri seasoning are more fun to share with you guys! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ * Get ready for ALL the paprika (smoked and sweet), chili spiciness, and a zesty combo of lemon and vinegar. Yo' chicken breasts won't know what hit 'em! Just let everything marinate and then throw it on the grill! Dinner and COLOR is served! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ—โค๏ธ * What's your typical summer dinner go-to?
