Useful Book For Vegetarians (& Those Willing To Try Some Veggie Dishes)
0

3 posts in this topic

Yesterday I started reading Food Allergy Survival Guide. It contains a great deal of useful information about food allergies (& intolerances) and nutrition, plus cooking tips and over a hundred recipes that are vegetarian and free of the most common food allergies (dairy, eggs, fish, gluten, peanuts, shellfish, soy, yeast, & kiwi fruit [didn't know the last one was common!]). Strawberries & tree nuts are optional in a few recipes, but these have alternatives suggested. Other ingredients to which folks might be sensitive have alternatives suggested if possible; if not, there is a "contains" list at the bottom. Complete nutritional information is provided for each recipe.

A book I have preordered is The Gluten-Free Vegetarian Kitchen. This one just avoids meat & gluten, however.

It's a good book. Daughter also has a banana allergy. Apparently that's getting common. We were just in the ER today. She may have chipped a bone but we have to wait till the swelling is down to see. Anyway... I was ticking off all her allergies...7 in all...and the lady said, "What? No shellfish?" The one thing she isn't allergic to is something she doesn't like.

Thanks -- I'll look for that one. If I keep buying cookbooks, at some point I will get to be a good cook, right :lol:

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
