LOOKING for: food allergies

Jo BeegleNovember 11, 2000

This week we found out that my husband has a whole bunch of food allergies. Corn, wheat, rice, potatoes, carrots, tomatos, celery, strawberries, cantelope, peanuts, hazelnuts, ... I'm looking for side dish recipies and casseroles dishes since this is cutting out most of mine.

I had this dish at a meeting I went to for needy babies
and it was very well received.

Granny apple
Red onion
Mayonnaise or Salad Dressing
Sugar or alternative sweetner
One may try a "Basalmic Vinegarette", as an alternative
Sorry to say the lady just cut up the proportions to suit her own taste in a large bowl and added the dressing.
It was absolutely delicious, though.
Since your hubby is allergic to so many things you may want to check out the dressings to make sure it is pure enough
for him.
Good Luck, Bobbi

Get a cookbook for Allergies. I use one that was published by The Allergy and Asthma Association for my daughter.
If he is allergic to cantaloupe, there's a good possibility he's allergic to things such as cucumbers, squash, and zucchini.
Peanut allergies are also very dangerous. Watch the beans, and other nuts. They contain the same enzyme that peanuts have.
Your choice is very limited in the starch category so, casseroles are limited since most of them need some kind of starch.
E-mail me if you need a phone number for the cookbook. Take care and good luck...
