I used to love Chex Mix as a fun snack (in moderation) but ever since I discovered I couldn't eat gluten anymore, I haven't been able to eat it (unless I make it myself). I like homemade Chex Mix because I can add my own flavors and ingredients to personalize it just for me. Last week for Steeplechase, one of the dishes I made was my Champions Corner Chex Mix. Everyone loved it so I decided to share with the world in case you can't eat the pre-bagged Chex Mix either! For the tailgate, I added in the yogurt covered raisins and Boston Baked Beans candy for the Patriotic Party effect. This recipe leaves those two ingredients out to keep it dairy-free. Feel free to play around with different amounts of ingredients to fit your taste. I added in the bourbon since we were going to Steeplechase and it seemed like a very Kentucky Derby like thing to do. I also love making a sweet and spicy flavored mix but I thought this flavor was more unique and fun to post! Maybe I will add in another one later :)

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
