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.

Sandy is blind and has been so for about 8 years.  during the last year, she has become almost completely deaf.  seeing her bump around the house can be discouraging and the effort to care for her seems high / she takes medication every day and gets bathed once a week with expensive shampoo to keep her skin healthy and eats special food because of allergies.

but  the thing that always warms my heart, is when i come home and she gets close to me and recognizes me by smell and starts wagging her tail.

Hers: grilled chicken with mojo sauce and a side salad with olives at Bills (they have an allergy menu- always appreciated even if there are literally only two items on the menu I can eat!)

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.
