Food, Love and Autism.. Again

A while back I wrote an essay tiled Food, Love and Autism.  It was re-titled and published by the late great Heidi Stevenson, former editor of Gaia-Health.  At the time I was still struggling and crying over the food issue with autism.  Our kiddos are the guttiest kids with leaky guts the size of the Grand Canyon.  Even main-stream ‘science’ has caught up to what us autism parents’ have known since the beginning.  The gut effects the brain.. like A LOT.

Today, I am the mother of a 10 year old with severe vaccine injury; I’m a veteran autism mom with 8 years nutritional therapy research experience.. who still cries and struggles over diet but hey.. it’s worth it and bringing out my inner June Cleaver is one of the best things that’s ever happened to me.  I have been blessed to be a stay at home mother of 3 beautiful kids and the wife of a husband who works hard to make it all happen.

And lately I’ve been taking a break from kicking ass, to kick ass even harder at home.. This is an attempt to kick ass at making GAPS friendly caramel apples.. It wasn’t a huge success but you can taste the love…

Okay.. they’re a hot sticky mess… WIN_20151028_133451

If you care to venture, I found this recipe at the Liberated Kitchen.. Good luck and Happy healing in love to all our vaccine injured children.. You deserve a sticky, yummy apple with goo all over it.. You’re welcome kids!! Parents.. I warned you. 😉
