When you are limited in what you can eat due to allergies and food sensitivities, it is always a blessing to find some new favorites! It has been a while since I have shared about our allergy friendly journey. Since we recently attended the Atlanta Gluten Free Allergy Friendly Expo, I felt it was time to share our top gluten free and allergy friendly favorites. Because there really is so much that we can eat. And because we have been reaquainted with some old favorites and introduced to some new foods.

Yay for SunButter allergy-friendly and on the go! On spring break we are enjoyed picnics with on the go cups – and will continue to go on more picnics. Easy to tuck into a backpack for hikes and homeschool on the go too. Can you tell we ❤️ SunButter?
SunButter Sunflower Seed Spread
SunButter is a staple for the Hodgepodge. SunButter is also free of the top eight allergens! I’ve shared before about how we order two 5 lb pails of SunButter each month. We enjoy sandwiches and basically everything we would enjoy with peanut butter. SunButter is a complete replacement in recipes and it allows us to have family picnics! We even guest posted on the SunButter blog a few years ago: SunButter Balls with Homeschooled Kids
What is new in our SunButter world? Recently we tried SunButter on the Go cups…
This is a big deal, y’all. An allergy friendly picnic! With our @sunbutter on the go cups and some gluten free/egg free bread – we can take SANDWICHES and enjoy the local parks and our state park pass! #allergyfriendly #thischangeseverything #nutfree #eggfree #glutenfree (#latergram from Saturday’s picnic with our awesome swag from @gfafexpo) Thank you SunButter☀️
Many thanks to SunButter for our great pencils we use for math, our SunButter backpacks – handy for hikes.
When we met Juli from SunButter at the GF&AF Expo, we learned that SunButter has stickers that display ‘Made with SunButter’ so you can take your sandwich anywhere and others will know that your sandwich is allergy friendly.
We also found out that they offer a SunButter sugar free version now!
And did you know that SunButter joined together with Simply Gluten Free Magazine for a gluten free cookbook series? Yes! We are inspired and there are many recipes that are also egg free. Yay! There is also a School Safe SunButter recipe book on the SunButter site. Plus, be sure to browse the recipe section of the SunButter website.
We have tried many a gluten free bread. You fellow gf friends know what I am talking about when I say sawdust and cardboard like. This is amazing and SO good! Schar bread is thick like a bakery bread. It is substantial and it is delicious! Plus, it caused that open-mouthed reaction in our youngest. He said, “I haven’t had a sandwich in like two years! This is delicious!” There is a store locator on the website and you can also find Schar bread at Amazon.
Smart Flour Foods
Smart Flour is our latest, favorite gluten free, egg free, peanut free pizza! Made with ancient grains. We had fun visiting with Smart Flour at the GF&AF Expo too.
