Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free, Plant-Based Father’s Day Recipes

candida diet, sugarfree, vegan recipes for Father's Day

I was that kid in high school and university that everyone hated because I always got my essays done early. While my friends were pulling all-nighters on the weekend before a due date, I was out partying and whooping it up (though, as it turned out, in the company of strangers–since my friends were home pulling those all-nighters.)

These days, I can’t boast quite the same exemplary record when it comes to getting tasks completed early. Sure, I meet my deadlines (you can wipe that sweat from your brown, dear editor of mine!), but I never do manage to get things done with quite the same comfortable buffer I used to have. Which means the execution of plans isn’t quite so laid-back as it used to be.**

For example: as I write this, it’s mere hours away from Father’s Day, and I still haven’t concocted my special meal for the HH.

Just in case some of you might find yourselves in the same boat, I decided to post this list of yummy Dad-friendly recipes for you to use. These are all free of gluten, eggs, dairy and refined sugars (though some might require minute adjustments to render them anti candida diet-friendly–subbing apple cider vinegar for the exisiting vinegar in the recipe, for example). Plus, they all allow Dad to sit back and relax while someone else does the cooking.

To all of you celebrating–Happy Father’s Day!
