Toasted Muesli

Vegan, Low Protein (PKU) and Dairy Free

Total Protein Count: Not suitable for PKU diets
Serving Size = 1 cup
4 Serves

My husband loves Toasted Muesli. So much so that he orders it at cafes. (Which I find a bit strange because he has it nearly every day at home.) It is so easy to make, that you won’t want to waste money on pre-made / prepackaged muesli any longer.

Shepherd’s Pie

Vegan, Low Protein (PKU), Gluten Free and Dairy Free

Total Protein Count: 13-18 g Protein
9 Serves = 1.6-2 g Protein per serve

Tell someone you are making Shepherd’s Pie and inevitably they will respond with, “I make a wicked Shepherd’s Pie. Do you want my recipe?” It is one of those great family dishes that  are passed down through the generations with pride. Luckily for those with PKU or just those who prefer not to add meat, this is a great vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie packed with flavour.

Apple Pie

Vegan, Low Protein (PKU), Gluten Free and Dairy Free

Makes 1 x 24 cm / 9.5 ins pie
Total Protein Count: 0-0.3g Protein
8 Serves = 0g Protein per serve

When anyone asks me what my motivations are for writing Charlotteats, I answer that it is my goal to provide a REAL FOOD option for my PKU daughter and family can enjoy together. I am grateful for the medically processed foods that are available to us and the PKU community, but I strive to give my family foods that are natural and un-processed as much as possible. By eating foods closest to their natural state, our bodies will of course benefit. This is what nature intended. Yet when health conditions such as PKU prevent one from eating a wide range of natural foods, it becomes necessary to look for natural alternatives and substitutions. I continue to look for natural foods and the combination of foods that will allow us to have a low or no protein count. Probably the best example of this has been the re-development of the Traditional Apple Pie. Read More

Sicilian Eggplant Caponata

Vegan, Low Protein (PKU), Gluten Free and Dairy Free

Total Protein Count: 1-2 g Protein
6-8 Serves = 0 g Protein per serve

Adapted from: Not Quite Nigella

Ever since I found this vegetable-heavy recipe, we make it every month for Charlotte’s lunches. This versatile meal is wonderful for all ages. Little ones can have it blended or lightly chopped while introducing them to stronger flavours. Children will enjoy a mild version while adults may like it spicy with cayenne pepper or tangy with red wine in place of the vinegar. Read More
