I am so glad that I stumbled across The Alternative Kitchen e-book on Instagram and had the opportunity to contact Lisa and check out her online program " Your Alternative Kitchen".
After battling my own gut health issues and desperately searching for as many recipes as I could to help with my food intolerances and dietary choices, The Alternative Kitchen proved to be a great help. I was overwhelmed at having to cut certain foods out of my diet and trying to find replacements but I learned how to break this down through using the modules in the Your Alternative Kitchen e-course. I had never thought about the various roles each food plays eg: colour, texture, taste  and what foods could replace these roles but I am now able to use this method when cooking at home.
Thanks Lisa for a new insight into alternative cooking - the possibilities are endless and I don't have to go without now that I have learned about creativity in the kitchen!

"While the Alternative Kitchen's cook book may not be specifically geared towards food allergy families, we have found it to be incredibly helpful in our home. The information at the beginning of the book makes understanding alternative diets, whether it's from allergies, lifestyle or choice, easier to understand. The recipes are also easy to understand and have become staples in our house! One of our favorites is the Creamy Avocado Mayo. It's heavenly!"
