Living Without Magazine was the first allergen-friendly magazine I started to read when I first found out about my food sensitivities. It was always a treat to find a new issue on the magazine rack at Whole Foods–I would gobble up all of the information inside while feeling relieved that there was always a solution to my problem.  It gave me hope that I wasn’t stuck with eating just lettuce for the rest of my life. Now there is something even more special about Living Without’s recent Dec/Jan 2014 issue for all-things holiday related because…


It is my first magazine article written! Friends, I cannot be any more thrilled to share with you these ultra-fun recipes for Christmas. They are so much fun to do with your kids, with a good friend or all by yourself (sometimes I prefer this one because then you don’t have to evenly share your cookies). Regardless of who you decide to make these creative gluten, egg, and dairy-free treats with, the little ones will thank you for giving them the opportunity to still have creativity in their holiday despite their food allergies. Eating can and is still fun regardless of your restrictions!

And I also thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your support throughout the 2 years of the creation of Fork & Beans that now allows for me to do this as a career. I can’t even believe that I am saying that. I just love you all so much that I will personally go to each and everyone’s homes and pinch the hades out of your cheeks. Just you wait. But until then, I will settle on ONE person’s address. That is, leave a comment below about what your favorite holiday cookie is and if you are chosen, a special gift will be sent to you. Shhhhhhhh, it’s a secret though–like a secret Santa present. You will find out once you open up the package :) So go ahead and leave a comment by 11:59 pm PST on Friday, December 13th and one lucky duck will get their cheeks pinched

**This is only open for US residents**  THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED
