healthy eating for food allergies

Whole Foods Market appreciation post!

Whenever I come to London I take the opportunity to marvel at the glory of this shop. It really does stock a wonderful range of products and it’s a treat to see them so beautifully presented. Much of it is way out of my preferred price range but it’s gorgeous none the less. The freshly ground nut butters, produce, fresh juices and speciality/allergen free products are really wonderful.

Jes and I have been working a loose whole90. I have three months left in my pregnancy and we both want to focus on being more healthy. 85%-90% of our meals are whole30 compliant, with a little wiggle room for the occasional treat (because I’m pregnant, damnit).

I made this garlic “hummus” dip because I need something to help the raw veggies go down.

- 1 head of cauliflower, cut into pieces
- 2 tablespoons roasted garlic (I grabbed my garlic from the olive bar at the grocery)
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- salt to taste
- dried parsley (optional)

Boil 1-2" of water in a sauce pan and add in cauliflower. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and strain.

In a food processor or blender, add in cooked cauliflower, garlic, lemon, tahini, salt, and parsley. Blend until smooth.

Top with olive oil and paprika. Serve chilled.

Weekly meal prep updates?

So with summer behind us (as much as this pains me…), it’s the perfect time to get back on track and clean my diet a bit. I’ve been drinking like crazy, partying, smoking a bit, eating junk food… But I had a hell of a good time and I don’t regret nothing! Anyways with my finals last year I really got stressed and packed some extra weight (most of it melt right off once everything was over..) But I still feel like dropping another 5-10 pounds, plus I wanna get back to swimming now that I have all the extra time and going to the gym regularly. Y'all feel me, right? So I’ll be meal prepping regularly and I thought it’d be a great idea to share that here. I do things a bit differently plus my cuisine is greek/italian/turkish mainly, so I thought that’d be extra interesting.

A bit about my eating habits… I’m lactose intolerant (not such big of a deal just feel a bit uneasy the next morning.) so I avoid all dairy (But I’ll still eat in occasions..) I feel best on a diet high in fruits, vegetables and good fats. I try to make my plates as colorfull as can be and include fresh meat, fish and seafood. I generally avoid starches and grains (not carbs!), my grain of choice is usually rice of some short (basmati, brown, wild, noodles, wraps, etc…), wheat comes next (pasta or flour). But still I consume them rarely. I never have bread and I never cook quinoa (I simply don’t like it.) My condiments of choice are herbs (fresh or dried), spices, salt, vinegar and mustard. In none of my reciepes you’ll find dressings, sauces, mayonaise, etc… Unless it’s homemade and combines a variety of the above stated condiments.If you’d like to see my future meal prep post follow me ;) 

Why is it so easy to eat healthy in the summer?

Grilled veggies, cloud bread “bun” for the hot dog, watermelon.

Paleo Cloud Bread:
- 3 eggs, divided into yolks and whites
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- 3 tablespoons mayo

Add the baking soda into the egg whites and beat until stiff peaks form. Mix mayo and yolks together, then slowly fold into whites.

Use a measuring cup to scoop out mix onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. I made mine into a long shape for hotdogs, but you can make them into circle shapes for burgers or whatnot.

Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes.

When it came time for our visitors to leave, OlderTwin wanted to offer the little boy a cupcake. Without missing a beat he turned to the boy’s mom and asked:

Is he allergic to regular cupcakes? It’s dinner time but can he still please have one?

The boy’s mother laughed and assured OlderTwin that her son wasn’t allergic and it would be just fine if he took one home. 

When I was a kid, we just said, “Here have a cupcake,” as we handed it to a guest. But, these days between food allergies and the popularity of healthy eating lifestyles, you can’t be too careful when offering food to someone else’s child.

Food Pyramid For Allergy Elimination Diet: Healthy Eating for Food Allergies

Need some ideas for what to buy at the grocery store? Shopping with food allergies or for a loved one with food allergies is not always easy.

Food in its natural form and state, meaning not in a box or bag, is the least likely to be cross processed with allergens and other ingredients containing allergens.

Look to the Raw Food Pyramid above for aid in a balanced diet. For example, if you have tree nut allergies but consuming seeds seem to be okay, try substituting fat and omega needs (nuts) with seeds. Instead of almond milk, try hemp milk. Instead of pine nuts in your pasta or salad, try Hemp Seed Hearts.

Grocery shopping for a foodie with food allergies just got simpler.

Manja!
