Lillian’s Test Kitchen is an online cooking show/web series. All recipes are grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and cane sugar-free. The recipes are all also (at this point) paleo. Some are vegan. Some are raw. I use the best ingredients I can find (and afford).
I started this thing to figure out how to feed myself. When I was initially diagnosed with food allergies, I was immediately overwhelmed. I subsequently made a lot of poor food decisions, got sick a lot, felt helpless, scared, and angry. I ultimately realized that if I want to be healthy and not deprived (and I do want both of those things) I had to learn how to take care of myself and make my own food.
But the Lillian’s Test Kitchen show/series is not so much about food as it is about the experience of trying something you have never tried before and then finding the joy, comedy and laughter in those small moments in spite of and also often, because of dietary restrictions.
My goal is to inspire others to take their health into their own hands and make their own food.
I am not a doctor or a nutritionist. I can tell you what works for me but I can’t tell you what will work for you, so please don’t take my advice.
