Q&A: cooking for 3 with different food allergies…need program to sort out recipes?


Frage von brilbeaut: cooking for 3 with different food allergies…need program to sort out recipes?
My husband can’t eat gluten or dairy, I can’t eat foods with tyramine (gives me migraines, foods like beans, grapes), and my son can’t have salicylates (a lot of fruits, spices, tomatoes). We are the opposite of Jack Sprat and his wife…almost everything is eliminated except meats and fish and rice. Is there a program or website that will help me merge our no-no lists and create good healthy tasty meals?

Even as a person who suffers from food allergies also, I can’t imagine what preparing a meal in your family must be like. With complex situations like yours I don’t think there’s an easy way around it since the combination of your allergies isn’t very common. Most automated allergy free recipe guides I’ve used before only check for some of the most common ones, such as dairy, peanut, etc.The only way I can think of is with a lot of manual labor – take a big list of common foods and just strike off all you can’t eat one by one and see what’s left. There ARE recipe guides out there that let you search by ingredients so it may make the search a little easier.Other than that, maybe you can try shopping at health food stores that may stock on allergy free products such as gluten free bread or lactose free dairy products which may expand your cooking options just a bit.My best advice for you is to consult a nutritionist that specializes in allergies and get their recommendations for good recipes that are safe for you and your family.

    Have you thought of throwing all your recipes on-line — in some simple and free fashion — and using Google to search the site when you needed to?

    Best I can think of off the top of my head. Good luck; it sounds like quite the hassle.

    Going to see a nutritionist for help would probably be best for you – or else you’ll end up cooking three different meals!
