This week's food challenge!

So what do you eat when you can't have any of the good stuff!?!? To Bryce and I, good stuff is pizza, ice cream, muffins, savory sandwiches with cheese, nachos, cookies, cakes, etc. Unfortunately, those words/items are no longer allowed to be spoken about in our house for a while. At least until we are no longer craving them :) Since I'm still on a stricter diet than Bryce which includes zero processed foods and absolutely no sugar/fruit, I'm more of a challenge. On the other hand, we discovered some really great things that kept Bryce pretty content! Below was our first attempt to keep B free of all dairy, gluten, white potatoes, yeast and red beans:
