Allergies and cost

Just been searching LJ because I need some help. My mom is allergic to wheat, dairy and yeast, and although I've not been tested I know that I feel a lot better when I elliminate or at least drastically reduce the amount of wheat and dairy I eat.

Mom and I are both overweight (I'm about 28 pounds overweight, mom more so) but my mom refuses to eat according to her allergies because she says it's too expensive. I'm concerned about the long term effects on her (and my) health in the long term so wanted to ask how you guys deal with the cost of eating according to your allergies?

Frozen banana and/or avocado
sweetener eg sugar, honey, flavoured syrups
flavouring eg vanilla essence, coffee, flavoured syrups etc

I just made one with frozen avocado, frozen banana, rice milk, vanilla essence, caramel flavoured syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon, and it was AMAZING.

(Inspired by the last post making me think about milk drinks and remembering I wanted to try this, since the avocado sorbet I got makes great smoothies but is pricey)

Newbie & a Recipe
Hello all! I'm so glad to have found this group =) I'm 21 years old and lactose intolerant. Even so I can have butter, cheese and yogurt in small amounts but that's it. I can't do regular milk, ice cream, anything prepackaged with milk made in it & that includes chocolate (such a bummer). I am always trying to find ways to making recipes into lactose free versions.

I also have a recipe for lactose free hot cocoa. I got the idea from the side of a Hershey's cocoa can and altered it so that I could drink it. Hope maybe it could help someone else *shrugs* maybe

Current Mood: nervous

Experiences and/or Tips for Soy Allergy
Hi there,

My 8 year old son suffered a severe allergic reaction to food last month where I had to call 9-1-1 and be taken to hospital via ambulance.

Since then we have seen a pediatric allergist who has determined that he is allergic to peanuts, walnuts, hazlenuts and soy. I have been advised that he NOT eat any food containing these ingredients and am finding it extremely difficult to find much of anything that does not contain soy.


He carries an Epi-Pen with him at all times incase of some sort of contamination occurs & he has a reaction.

We are scheduled for a food-intake test at the hospital but the wait time for that is not until next year (appointment scheduled for March)

Thanks so much for all your help

Hi. I'm a 15 year old girl. I'm allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, pineapple, aspergues and more.

I was wondering if anyone had any type of cake recipes without any of those ingredients?

Hi - Im new and thought I would give you a bit of history.

I myself have been diagnosed with IBS which is set off by certain foods - my doctor refuses to test me (well its my old doctor now) and literally said that i will have to find out what causes the reaction by trial and error.

My 6 month old has been partially diagnosed with a milk protein intolerance - as in doc said it sounds like one, try him on a dairy free diet and we will review him, and also refer him to a dietician.

well on the dairy free diet he has been so MUCH better, he is happier when eating, gaining weight - ok only a little bit but hey anything is better than nothing! and is generally happier. we have a check up with the original doc in a couple of weeks but have to wait another 2 months for the appointment with the dietician.

Now with him having a milk protein intolerance got me to thinking - could I have the same, as I dont drink milk I had never thought taht I could have an intolerance to it, but upon doing som research as to what foods my son could and couldnt have I was amazed at just what has milk protein!

so yeah I have gone on a dairy free/minimal dairy diet and I'm feeling much better.

does anyone have any hints/tips on a dairy free diet for babies/toddlers?

I really really want to like quinoa flour. It's so nutritious, and so easy - you just blend the amount of raw quinoa you need in the blender for a minute or so. Unfortunately, raw quinoa has a bitter coating of saponin on it. The first thing I read about using quinoa flour said that cooking took care of it, but that hasn't proved fully true in my experience.

Hi! I joined this community because one of my close friends has a daughter with over 20 food allergies. I have them written down and refer to the list when they are coming over. I always struggle with "What can I feed Courtney?" (They always bring food for her, but I try to have food she can eat available too).

Here are a couple websites I have bookmarked that have free allergy recipes. Most sites seem to require registration and fees to even see the recipes. I have not actually tried any of these recipes yet, hopefully they are helpful to someone that needs them a little more than me.
