Perfect First Food After Tummy Flu

apple cinnamon mini muffins, paleo, grain free, scd, gluten free

I'm sure the rest of you mamas will agree...if we can have yummy fun healthy food at the ready, the "pick your food battle" battles go a lot better.  

I love these handy dandy little muffins because they:

1. Are great for little fingers

2. Can be made and frozen and taken out one by one

3. Don't have to be refrigerated so great for lunches and snacks

4.  Are not filled with sugar and grain carbs

5.  They are congestors, but without grain.  They are the kind of congestor that is GREAT for little sick ones as they can thicken up diarrhea and slow vomiting or are a great first food after being sick.

These muffins fit the builder and congestor categories, even though they are made with APPLES ( an eliminator) the apples are baked and provide a reductive sugar through cooking and so become a congestor.  Pair with fresh orange juice, green juice, and sliced fruit to provide a balanced Food FX snack or meal.
