This upcoming weekend is Super Bowl Sunday! Hooray Sports! I get a lot of questions around this time of the year, like “what can you eat?” or “is butter a carb?” (#meangirlsquote) But really, I do get asked quite a bit if I can enjoy the Super Bowl along with the rest of my friends. My answer to that is always -hell yes! The past couple of years we’ve been going to Brett’s friends house for the game, and they always put out an immense, almost entirely gluten-free spread. The first time they pulled this off, they knew almost nothing about my allergy- and to this I say- if they can pull it off on their first try, so can you! But this post is more than just easy gluten-free super bowl snacks, it’s a collection of some healthier, protein focused recipes that you can whip up without missing a play (or in my case, a commercial). Oh- and they’re all dairy free. HOW CAN THIS BE? You’ll see. I’ve also included a naughty surprise at the end as well as some drink ideas. Intrigued? Excited? … Salivating? Huddle up and let the recipes commence!
One of my Christmas presents from Sir Brett was a cooking class at The Wooden Spoon- a kitchenwares shop on Clark street that also offers incredible classes where you cook a three course meal and sip on wines paired with each dish. I will admit when I heard what we were doing I was nervous- a cooking class for someone strictly gluten-free? With people who may have not even heard of the allergy? Brett clearly did his research (shout-out to Amanda!) because this experience was not only delicious, but it was 100% gluten-free friendly- keep reading to find out how!
Hello friends! It’s been a bit since I last posted on Life’s A Beacham- but what can I say, the holidays happened and now we’re in 2017! One of my resolutions for the new year is to focus on bringing you all fun and inspiring content on a weekly basis. Last year I definitely accomplished a ton: the blog got an Instagram, a Facebook page, and I joined two blogging communities here in Chi-city that have really opened me up to some amazing opportunities, and lots of new friends! 2016 was a great year for Life’s A Beacham, but this year is the year of the blog! So, I want to know what you want to see more of here- more recipes? If so, what kind? Dinner, lunch, to-go brekkie, you tell me? If it’s more life events, Top 10 product lists, advice, money blogs, tell me! I want to write what you most enjoy reading so please please comment down below! Ok now that I’ve covered that- let’s get into the cool experience I had last week with KitchFix and Lulafit’s event Barre & Brunch:
As someone who’s allergic to everything, one of the stranger allergies I suffer from is a nickel allergy. What’s so bad about that you might ask? Nickel can be anywhere, and from zippers, to jean buttons, to jewelry (affordable and sometimes not), and I’m sick of the itchy blotchy rashes that come with donning some of my favorite duds.
If you’ve ever taken off your jewelry at the end of the night and had itchy red bumps on your neck, arm, or ears, you too could very possibly have a nickel allergy.
