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

Recommended Posts

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:
