  1. I like your web site but would like to see more focus on preservative free cooking without wheat and dairy. I have an intolerance to wheat, rice, dairy, preservatives and colours in foods.

    Love the natural foods and I love organic honey

    1. Thank you for your feedback! We’ll definitely take your suggestions into consideration as we continue to develop our content.

      In the meantime, here are a few tips for preservative-free cooking without wheat and dairy:

      1. Use alternative flours: Instead of wheat flour, consider using almond flour, coconut flour, or a gluten-free flour blend made from rice flour, potato starch, and tapioca flour.

      2. Experiment with plant-based milks: There are many non-dairy milk options available, such as almond milk, coconut milk, and oat milk. These can be used in place of dairy milk in recipes.

      3. Avoid processed foods: Many processed foods contain preservatives and additives that can trigger food sensitivities. Focus on whole, natural foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.

      4. Use natural sweeteners: Organic honey is a great option for a natural sweetener, but there are also other alternatives like maple syrup, date syrup, and coconut sugar.

      5. Check labels: When purchasing packaged foods, be sure to read the labels carefully to avoid any ingredients that may trigger your food sensitivities.

      We hope these suggestions are helpful!
