Do you ask yourself – “What can I eat?” too many times a week because you or your family has a unique diet with multiple food allergies?

The Problem:

  • Multiple food allergies, celiac disease and many other digestive related illnesses are on the rise in both children and adults today.
  • Most prepared foods contain common allergens such as:  wheat, dairy, gluten, soy, eggs, corn, nuts, fish and other common allergens.
  • Prepared foods are usually processed and contain chemicals, pesticides and preservatives.

Therefore…

  • People on limited diets have a difficult time finding premade food they can enjoy.
  • People need to cook most or all of their meals because of their restricted diet.

But…

  • People don’t have time to plan a week’s worth of allergen-free meals.
  • Many people don’t know where to start with allergen-free cooking.
  • It’s easy to get in a cooking rut and get bored with your diet.

and…

  • Everybody’s diet is different:  while many people can’t eat gluten, many others have multiple foods restrictions.
  • Some people have children who have different food allergies, making it more difficult to plan meals.

A Solution:

  • Having an easy and delicious meal plan every week saves people time and money.  The question, “What can I cook?” is put to rest and people have less stress.
  • People start to feel healthier and happier when they follow a diet that works for their body.
  • Having an organized shopping list saves time and money.  People don’t impulse-buy as much because what they need is on the list.

How to Meal Plan for a very limited Grain-free, Dairy-free, Soy-free and Egg-free diet

I receive a lot of emails from people who have found my site and are looking for ideas for their very limited diet.  Some of these people are at a complete loss as to what to eat because their diet is so limited.  I received one of these emails from someone last week inquiring about a diet for her daughter.

Here was her list of foods that her daughter was told to avoid:

gluten (wheat, barley, oats, spelt, kamut, tricale, and all products containing gluten such as soy sauce, etc)
grain (includes rice, millet, teff, and other gluten-free grains)
dairy
egg
soy
corn
banana
kiwi

This is a similar list to many of the people who come to me.  There are definite variations and more limited diets like those without any meat or fish, legumes, nuts, all fruit, etc.  But I thought I’d start with this diet to give you some ideas on where to start.

Artichoke Pesto Recipe (dairy and nut-free)

Being a personal chef who specializes in cooking for people on limited diets, I am always meeting people who follow different kinds of limited diets. I’m different from most personal chefs who have set menu items. Instead, I work with my clients personally on the diet they follow and with their dietary restrictions. Because of this I’m always learning something new. My latest new client has been given a protocol to follow to help heal her Lyme’s disease. And she gave me the book that her doctor recommended, Recipes for Repair by Gail and Laura Piazza. I’ve been trying some of the recipes and they are really delicious.

Paleo Egg-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

What does one do when stuck inside during a blizzard? Make cookies of course. And if you live in the mid-Atlantic region of the country, you know what I’m talking about. I’m just hoping I can go to work sometime next week. If not, I guess I’ll just make more cookies:) I hope that if you’re also in the middle of the storm, you are home safe and cozy with heat and a batch of fresh baked cookies yourself.

Autoimmune and Paleo Beef Stir Fry with Snow Peas

Have you ever wondered how to make a very tender and delicious beef stir fry? It is easy to mess up a beef stir fry recipe and end with meat that is tough and chewy. How tender the meat turns out depends upon the cut of meat you use as well as the way it is cooked. Plus, if you’re using grass-fed beef, it cooks faster than regular beef and needs to be removed earlier.

Raspberry Granita (sugar-free)

My friend recently went to Italy and told me all she wanted to do was walk to see all the beautiful scenery, and eat the wonderful food – especially the gelalto.  She loved it so much she got a cookbook for making gelato and when I was at her house, I was pretty much drooling over the recipes.  I also noticed something in the book called granitas, which are yummy little Italian ices.

Easy Autoimmune Protocol Travel Ideas + Nightshade-free Chicken Tacos Recipe

Being on a limited diet is one thing. But traveling on a limited diet? I have personally avoided getting on a plane and traveling long distances because it is difficult to do so on such a limited diet. It’s not impossible, but the autoimmune protocol is one of the more limited diets which makes traveling very difficult.
