This was made possible through a partnership with Nocciolata Dairy Free from Rigoni di Asiago.
Gracie is normally starving when she gets home from school. However, because of her IBS ( irritable bowel syndrome), she can’t always eat what she wants because if she eats too much dairy she tends to flare a lot.She has been looking for alternative foods but sometimes it isn’t always easy to find. And anything that is a healthy alternative forget about it. In fact, she has for years put on her Christmas list for my mom Peanut Butter but not the healthy kind. Yep, she is that kind of kid.
But I can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised when I was sent a jar of Nocciolata Dairy Free from Rigoni di Asiago fan that she ate it and liked it. But it wasn’t without a fight. She saw the words Dairy free on the side and was like nope not going to do it. I am not going to eat it. You can’t make me. But guess what I told her to try it and she finally relented and said yes.
And just like that, a new Nocciolata Dairy Free from Rigoni di Asiago fan was born. She loves to eat it by the spoonfuls as well as spreading it on a tortilla with slices of bananas or strawberries on top. It is probably one of her favorite afterschool snacks.
She even let Allie try it and it left her licking her lips for more. She loves it just as much as Gracie does. As a mom I am glad that something so tasty can also be healthy and not only is it great on a tortilla but it can be used to dip fruits into as well spread across a bagel.
