Back in the day, I had a precious little baby with some surprising . . . and unsettling . . . diapers. My sweet Evangeline—French for good news—my second born, was having digestive issues from nursing.
Did you know that sometimes digestive systems just mature later? The doctor (and medical team that developed) didn’t want to do invasive testing. I just had to give up the common allergens from my diet, therefore getting it out of my nursing and Eva’s tummer!
What are the most common allergy-triggers? Dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, and fish. Plus, these days it is not uncommon to hear about actual allergies to gluten (in addition to celiac disease), corn, food coloring, etc. It felt like I couldn’t eat anything! Can you imagine? And I know my way around a kitchen!
Thankfully, it is NOT that people with allergies can’t eat anything! I muddled through on a few good recipes, but Help! My Kid Can’t Eat Anything! would have been a tremendous help to me back nine years ago. And, you know what? It still can be today, even without kids with allergies myself.
I’ll tell you why. Their cousins have food allergies. Some of their friends have food allergies. Plus, when we go somewhere and bring along bagged sandwiches, there may be people there with food allergies! (Yes, Y, I’m looking at you and your KidZone that I love so much.)
The Amazon blurb describes it as a survival guide, and I’m sure it is. It is NOT UNCOMMON for food allergies to come in multiples! And, while some “intolerances,” like my daughter’s, can be outgrown, even more allergies and intolerances are grown into. 🙁
Feel free to be proactive. Get this cookbook and get cooking. It’s interesting on top of potentially life-saving. Or, bookmark it, because it may be that you’ll need to recommend it to a friend or family member.
Recipes are broken down into the following:
Soups and Salads
Spices, Dressings, Sauces and More
Thanks, Andrea, for your research to produce this resource! I’m so glad to see Lutherans helping others in all sorts of many and various ways!

About this Site
The “Meet, Write, and Salutary” blog encourages Lutherans to write. At the same time, maybe this website is better understood as a reading, writing, and resources place.
