Well, I am still stuck on breakfast!  I found an awesome recipe for almond flour pancakes at Elana’s Pantry (http://www.elanaspantry.com/pancakes/) that I thought Daniel would try this morning since he used to LOVE “cake cakes”.  No luck.  I decided to make him try one bite so that he could see how wonderful they are, and after sitting for a long time at the table, he bravely put a bit in his mouth… and immediately gagged and threw up!!!!!!!!  Argh.  I think he has a fear of bread products like waffles and pancakes.  I suppose I need to completely give up (haven’t I said that before?).   And, yes, I do feel bad about this whole thing, but I do think he needs to learn to take a bite of new foods.  Oh, one more thing about the pancakes: Mike and I think they are great!   I made them with Bob’s Red Mill almond flour even though she (Elana) doesn’t recommend it, and I used coconut milk and oil to skip the dairy products.  I would suggest trying them out, and I hope if you do that you don’t throw up!   😦   So I am not posting breakfast again (imagine me alternating between hard boiled egg whites and scrambled egg whites).
