As someone with adult onset food allergies, when my specific allergens are brought up, several times I have had the response of: what CAN you eat? Many people imagine a life with food allergies is full of eating mediocre packaged food and being deprived. When I was first diagnosed, I felt that way too, but through my food allergies I have expanded my palate and grown exponentially as a home cook.
I have often found recipes online but have had to tweak them, often significantly to tailor it to my dietary needs. This blog will be a space where I share some of those modified recipes as well as other tips and tricks I have found for thriving with food allergies, especially as an adult!
I am not going to be able to tailor recipes to every restriction, but that is part of your journey, to take something and learn to edit and make it work for you.
Other things I have found that do not agree well with my body:
Romaine/iceberg lettuce or any lettuce that is too full of “roughage.”
