Especially For You

Especially For You "Especially For You!" Special Diet Treats, by Wendy "Spreading blissful yumminess to the special diet crowd..."

Call:703-239-ES4U We cater to : The Paleo Diet, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free (100% diabetic-friendly!), Soy-free, Nut-free Diets, and more. Only the finest natural ingredients. Delicious, Pure & Simple! No hydrogenated oils, no artificial colors or flavors, or additives.

Mission: Our mission is to spread blissful yumminess to those on special diets! Just because you have to "go without" certain ingredients, doesn't mean you have to "miss out!" ...My business is a personal mission as well. I want to help & serve those who are going through the same struggles I've been through. It's certainly not easy to make drastic changes to one's diet, when food allergies & intolerances become reality in one's life. But the changes are necessary, in order to lead a healthy, happy and productive life. Lifestyle change is so hard sometimes, but doesn't need to be bewildering or overwhelming. Over the last 15 years, I've navigated through the strange and wonderful world of the "special diet." There have been plenty of ups and downs... frustrations (like finding something, anything (!) to eat at parties)... but ultimately success, as I learned to find creative solutions. Today I see my special diet restrictions as a "gift," not a curse! By God's grace, I've found my path, one that works for my body's needs, and allows me to lead a healthy life, in service to my Lord. God continues to teach me everyday. So, I pray I can pass some wisdom on to others, as they seek their own path.

This shot does more justice to the beautiful deep orange color you get when you use kuri squash (in place of pumpkin.) Previous shots turned out too light.

It's that time of year again! Time for roasting yummy winter squash! This is my favorite- red kuri squash. Local, from Willowsford Farm in Ashburn, VA. Its' bright orange flesh tastes richer & sweeter than pumpkin. Anyone for some gluten-free "Spiced Pumpkin Loaf?"

Hi everyone! This is Wendy's niece, Emma. My mom is Wendy's sister, Kristina. We order foods from Wendy quite a bit. She is able to priority mail many things to us since we live pretty far away from her. We are always so excited to get yummy treats in the mail that we can eat without worry!!
I am helping to watch over Wendy's Especially for you page this week. I have a testimony I'd like to share. Here's my food story! :0) :
I'm gluten intolerant. Whenever I eat gluten, my stomach swells and I feel like I can't eat much. I ate gluten for 11 years not knowing any of this was going on. I loved bread, cake, pasta, you name it. So when I found out this spring that I was gluten intolerant, it totally changed my life. I learned about gluten-free products; I had seen them in the store before, but I never really had any need to buy them. I learned to read labels even more carefully, and had to cut a lot of things out of my diet you wouldn't suspect, like certain kinds of chocolate and Edensoy soymilk. It was a big challenge to figure out what to feed my picky friends at my 12th birthday party. But I have gotten used to it. It definitely helps to know that there are still treats you can eat. Back in April, Wendy made me some really yummy cupcakes to celebrate my birthday early. She is very talented! :)

Hey friends! What are you craving lately during this hot,hot weather? Me? Ice cream! Definitely...I have my eyes on that Kitchen Aid ice cream maker attachment. Then I can make exactly whatever ice cream I want (and fits my special diet.) Maybe I'll even sell some, too! Anyone interested in made-to-order ice cream???
