Brownie Bites 3.5 : 1

 

I have recently discovered hemp seeds and I am a bit excited about the health benefits of them! They are incredibly nutritious, high in fat, low in carbs, and a good source of protein and fiber. They have a mild nutty taste and are full of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. They mix well with macadamia nuts and create a soft chewy texture. I found these to taste soft and cake like.

Updating our blog!

We are celebrating over one year of Glut1 blogging with a blog refresh. We are updating Drake’s Glut1 Story to include “what early warning signs to look for” and “what early interventions have helped”.

This past week I have been updating our blog!

You will notice it is newly organized, categorized and labeled. Wahoo! Hopefully this will making reading and searching this site easier. I’ve also added a navigational menu with pages that explain what Glut1 Deficiency is and what early signs to look for on the movement disorder side of this rare disease. Plus info on what the Keto diet is and a little about ourselves excerpt.

Thank you to all who have followed Drake’s Glut1 Journey so far, and thank you to those who have reached out to me for advice and support. We are so grateful that we are helping to spread the word about Glut1 Deficiency from a mild kids unique viewpoint.

We will continue to tell Drake’s story and add to his “Glut1 Journey”. And we will also continue to write about our experience of doing Keto on a kid long-term — what differences it has made along the way and what adjustments we will make over time. Along with hands on practical advice from a “Mom & Dad in the trenches” perspective. 

 

Halloween Teal Pumpkin Project for Keto Kids

Teal Pumpkin Project for Keto Kids! Make Halloween special for kids on restrictive diets with non-food treats!

We actually didn’t pay too much attention to the Teal Pumpkin Project last Halloween (the first Halloween for Drake on the Keto diet) because I assumed it was solely for kids with severe food allergies to still be included in the trick-or-treating experience by having a separate candy bowl of nut-free and dairy-free candy.

But of course for Keto kids, all Halloween candy and chocolate is hands-off.
