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.

What you can eat when you have soy allergies or soy intolerance

Homemade Dairy and Soy-free Cheese

Update March 2018: This post was originally created in 2009. A lot has changed in nine years and there are so many more soy-free products available on the market. So I’m updating the post to include some of the new choices for people who avoid soy products.

Soy is one of the top eight most common food allergens.  Yet, soy products can be found in many foods in restaurants, fast food, manufactured breads, cereals, mayonnaise, salad dressings, in non-dairy milk products and many other foods.

Plant-based Meals, Fruit and Veggie Salads and Homemade Lemon Tahini Salad Dressing

Something somewhat miraculous has happened in my life. After avoiding almost all fruit for two years and starchy and sweet veggies for over nine years, I am eating them again. My food choices had become increasing grim and unappetizing last year where I found myself eating the same limited foods each week: salmon, chicken, turkey, some beef, non-starchy veggies including spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, etc, some cheese, eggs, coconut, nuts, chia seeds…not sure what else. I basically was bored with food and tired of eating because life in the land of food had become so pathetically unpleasing to the eye as well as the palette.

How I started this journey ten years ago when I embarked upon the GAPS diet and how I ended up where I am today eating a (mostly) plant-based diet is quite a long story and I’m still working on writing about about this journey. So in the meantime, I will share what is nourishing and filling me up these days.
