Healthy, Baked, Crispy Spring Rolls

PictureWe all have our favorite Chinese food and for some the owners may even know what you want the minute you walk in to their restaurant or the moment you call to place an order. For others, like myself who truly miss the thought of Chinese food, but can’t necessarily tolerate the added flavoring or the ingredients added to the food itself, my heart goes out to you.

As most of you are well aware by now, I too, am one of those people who cannot tolerate all the above. However, just because I may not be able to enjoy the same food as my husband, it does not mean that I will not occasionally make his ‘favorites’ for him to enjoy. I am not going to lie, although the aroma of the food I am making for him tantalizes my senses, I know the pain that will quickly ensue is not worth the moment of amazing smells period. I have just learned to modify foods I miss to make them tolerable for me and through these modifications I have made some pretty amazing meals if I do say so myself.  My food intolerances were one of the reasons I started my blog to share options with so many others. I wanted to give hope to people that you can still enjoy food, but you will just need to be more aware and vigilant as to how that food is prepared.

Now, this option is something I cannot eat, but my previous blog post on; gluten-free-shrimp-spring-rolls.html using rice wraps is my modified option for my food allergy, intolerance, sensitive friends. You can simply swap out the shrimp for chicken or beef or whatever you prefer.
