For those of you who don't know I have a lot of stomach problems. In the past 3 years I have developed severe lactose intolerance. I have been diagnosed with terrible acid reflux and I can't eat most foods without getting painful stomach aches. Most mornings after I eat a delicious dinner, I wake up dizzy and nauseous.
I relish the days I used to eat anything at anytime and never feel sick. Now I find myself sticking to my "safe foods" which include apples, apple sauce, grapes, plain air popped popcorn, rice, tea and water. It's boring and I hate it.
To keep my hope alive, or to torture myself, I frequent FoodGawker.com and FindingVegan.com ... they are pretty amazing. You can see my favorites on Food Gawker here. A lot of the times I will comb through these recipe ideas and pull out things I think I would like to try to make, for other people, because I know my stomach could never handle it.
These Coconut Macaroon Nutella Nests will be perfect for me to bring home for Easter... but I can't eat them: I am allergic to Nutella, due to the hazelnuts and dairy ingredients.
There is so much dairy in this sweet treat, so I may also make some Vegan Coconut and Lime Macaroons for myself!
