We all know Kourtney Kardashian is the “health nut” of the family. However, the mom of three made her household gluten- and dairy-free only just this spring. Shocking!
After being a topic on a few recent episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, we guess the reality star felt the need to explain her decision on, what else, her app. “I have noticed a great positive change in behavior with my children,” she wrote in a blog post. Kourtney added that her kids have had muscle testing done, which showed they all have sensitivities to gluten, dairy and corn.
Kourtney also shared what she and the kids eat for each meal. Breakfast is usually gluten- and dairy-free waffles with either scrambled eggs or cereal. For milk, she opts for homemade almond, organic coconut or organic rice.
“For lunch, we usually have carrots and celery with hummus and a gluten-free rice tortilla with sliced turkey meat or turkey dogs — no bun,” she wrote. Dinner consists of steamed vegetables, rice or gluten-free pasta and a protein of chicken, turkey or fish.
The kids do get to live it up on special occasions. “Of course, we pick our battles and I do let the kids have popcorn at the movies and a churro at Disneyland, etc,” she explained. “But for birthday parties, which can sometimes be every weekend, I bring extra gluten and dairy-free cupcakes … and they are happy with that.” Hey, at least they get some sort of sweet treat!
