Food Allergy Recipes
If your child (or baby) has been diagnosed with food allergies, allow me to suggest a wonderful recipe book that might help you provide some scrumptious treats you otherwise might not be able to make. The Whole Foods Allergy Cookbook by Cybele Pascal was written after Cybele developed recipes for her breastfed allergic son, Lennon. Since she found little help in "allergy" recipe books, she decided to share her knowledge with other parents who struggle to find foods appropriate for their own allergic babies and children. The book is loaded with two hundred gourmet and homestyle recipes for families allergic to: dairy, wheat, soy, egg, peanut, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish. It is the first cookbook to eliminate all eight allergens responsible for 90% of food allergies!
I have used a number of recipes from the book so far, and as an amateur cook, some of the recipes seem intimidating. But many are easy to follow and make your mouth water just reading them! We are not an allergic family, and we bought the book because of the dedication Cybele makes to incorporate whole foods into her recipes. That is very important to us. Cybele also mentions eliminating refined cane sugar from the diet, which is essential, especially for our children. We have recently worked on replacing our sweeteners with alternatives like honey, molasses, and maple syrup. If this is a goal of yours, you might want to check out Whole Foods Allergy Cookbook as well!
It has been many months since we first started using The Whole Foods Allergy Cookbook, and we have never been healthier. We definitely have learned that good health is a multi-pronged process, and can't be achieved by one or two measures. Everything that goes in, including air, water, food, and supplements must be considered, and everything we do from exercise to hobbies will effect our health. You can learn more about the many facets of good health in our healthy living eBook, Not Just Another Pair of Sexy Genes.
Another of Cybele's books, (Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking: 30-Minute Meals without Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Eggs, Soy, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish, Shellfish, and Sesame) adds gluten as an allergen.
