Food allergies and/or intolerances have increased over the past decade. Many who are dealing with food allergies or intolerances can be fearful to try new dishes or eat outside of their homes. There are many allergen-free meals and snacks that can be made with greenhouse grown fruit & veggies that are safe, healthy, and most importantly, tasty. It’s always a good idea to keep food allergies or intolerances in mind when meal planning and we’re here to help!
As much as everyone has their favorite tried-and-true desserts, our friend Caeli-Rose from @happierinthekitchen shared this unique recipe for Cucumber Lime Cheesecake Bars with us in her blog about thinking outside the box for dessert ideas.

Take them to your next gathering and WOW everyone with this unique and delicious combination.
There really is nothing better than pairing fresh greenhouse grown veggies with whole ingredients to create delicious colorful salads that your whole family will love.
