About Cassidy’s Craveable Creations
Hey there, I’m Cassidy. Welcome to Cassidy’s Craveable Creations where you’ll find easy, tried-and-tested, kid-approved gluten free recipes that are mostly dairy free, Paleo and Keto.
I started this website in 2011 as a way to share gluten free recipes with my family. Since then my blog has grown by leaps and bounds! I’ve been featured on numerous websites such as OriGym, Daiya Foods and La Cena Fine Foods. I was a recipe developer and author for Grumpy’s Honeybunch and bake for local businesses. Also, my Keto Breads Cookbook has been featured on many allergy friendly websites such as Healthful Pursuit, Cook Eat Paleo, Tessa The Domestic Diva, and Gluten Free Easily, just to name a few.
I have a passion for healthy cooking and have personally seen the power that food has to transform your health. Even though I cook healthy and allergy-friendly, though, I believe the food can taste just as good as its original counterpart without any compromising on taste! All my recipes are kid-approved, simple enough for everyday life, and require no special equipment.
Whether you follow a Paleo or Keto diet for health reasons or weight loss, I hope you find my recipes easy to follow, delicious, and just as good as the original.
When I’m not busy blogging I love taking walks, snowboarding, family vacations, and binge watching TV shows at night after the kids go to bed. I’m also crazy addicted to chocolate, like to exercise (I’m a weirdo, I know!), and have a passion for all things health related.
Why Paleo, Keto, & Whole30?
I started cooking gluten free in June of 2009 to help my son who was diagnosed with Aspergers and Epilespy, and the change ended up helping, not only my son, but me with my Hashimoto’s and our entire family – so I’ve never looked back!
Like many children in the Autism spectrum my son, Lance, has trouble breaking down the proteins in gluten due to leaky gut. As a way to help heal his gut and control his symptoms we went gluten free and saw a vast improvement! In addition to going gluten free though, we also started eating mostly Paleo, which meant cutting out most dairy, grains, and processed sugar to further help his body heal.
After being Paleo for awhile, we started the Keto diet as a way to control Lance’s seizures. The Keto diet is a low-carb, moderate protein, high fat diet. In addition to epilepsy, the Keto diet can also help with blood sugar regulation, weight loss, hormone regulation, brain disorders, autism, and more.
However, having a 13 yr-old boy who’s starving all the time on a Keto diet is hard – really hard!!! We could never be as strict as needed (20-30 net carbs a day) for a long enough period of time to keep him seizure free. Even though we couldn’t stick to 20 to 30 net carbs a day as a way to control his seizures, following a modified Keto diet ( 50 – 70 net carbs a day) still helps him tremendously and is the diet we currently follow.
I also have many Whole30 recipes because I try to do a Whole30 once a year. It’s a great way re-set, find hidden food sensitivities, and get rid of sugar cravings. Plus, all Whole30 recipes are also Paleo and many of them are Keto too!
