  • Hey, that's not too bad! You can do it. I am vegan and grain free, with some other allergies as well. I can manage sage and green peppers, but none of the rest that you list. There's an allergies board too if you are interested: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/forums/show/161-food-allergies Shout out for advice as you need it!
  • You know, you can eat anything for breakfast that you can eat for other meals. There's not rule!
  • I am vegan, grain-free, multiple allergies. Eat lots of: - fruits - veggies - quinoa - buckwheat - potato - sweet potato - beans - tofu - nuts and seeds There are lots of things you can do! Let me know if you need recipes or ideas! For what it's worth, I find it easier to convert vegan recipes to gluten free/vegan recipes…
  • - quinoa, frozen veggies, tofu optional, and a sauce - baked potato and salsa - pasta marinara - canned beans chili - quesadilla - taco salad - pancakes/crepes/waffles - wraps/sandwich - soup
  • I wonder about gluten too. Are you eating a lot more roti than you were before? Chickpeas bother my boys more than other beans. It's rotten to have food reactions and be sick and trying to sort them out. Can you try other types of flatbreads that are not wheat or chickpea? Say, dosas?
  • Bean/veggie chili!
  • How you treat them will depend on where they are. For example, if you are wearing Asics, you may get blisters in your arch, because they have a two-piece last, and the stitching is in the arch and rubs on you. So a gel insole will clear it right up. If you have them on the outside of your toe, you may have shoes that are…
  • What part of your foot are the blisters on? I like second skin burn pads.
  • Are babies vegan if they're consuming breast milk? :wink:
  • Not directly on point, but some thoughts: http://strengthrunning.com/2012/06/debunking-chronic-cardio/ http://running.competitor.com/2011/10/sports-science-update/sports-science-update-cortisol-and-the-runner_39176 http://www.livestrong.com/article/504834-running-cortisol-levels/
  • All of the above. I was never big on meat growing up. It never really appealed to me, other than highly spiced stuff. I am very much an animal lover, and would have gone veg as a teen, but I knew my dad (farm boy) would never have allowed it. So I just ate the minimal I could at home to get away with it. Shortly after I…
  • I have a friend who described something similar to me. I couldn't figure it out. You did say in both cases though "without much issue". That tells me there are minor issues. And if you eat two things that you are mildly allergic to, it can magnify the results exponentially. I am usually pretty okay with bananas,…
  • I had the same problem, chased after the organizers for six months and they said that they could handle his special diet issues. When I finally got the menu plan, it was obvious that they could deal with single diet limitations (eg. celiac) but not multiple diet limitations (eg. vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free,…

  • Right, if you are not eating gluten, you will get a negative result.
  • I never had any clue that I was celiac when I first when gluten free. Our household went gluten free for my son (adopted, so he didn't get celiac from us) because with his low impulse-control, there couldn't be any gluten in the house or he would eat it. Then when I would go out to eat somewhere else, I would get sick...…
  • Tough when you're in a shared household. But your health will be better if you do as others say, and stick to whole, naturally gluten free foods. If it gets cool enough in the late evening to cook, then throw some potatoes, sweet potato, squash, etc. in the oven and just let it cook, then you have it handy later. You can…

  • Some celiacs react to oats as well as gluten containing grains. I can't eat anything from the grain family, including oats, corn, rice, etc. But there are still other options for hot cereal - buckwheat or quinoa flakes (or cracked/whole), amaranth, some people have even claimed that cauliflower makes a nice hot cereal....
  • I am vegan and grain-free and have multiple allergies. I'm not keeping a diary right now, but open to questions.
  • My kiddo veg from birth. He's 15 and now more of a junk foodarian, but still veg. Big tall strong boy.
  • Most added sugars are corn-based, so it may be a corn allergy. Or you may be allergic to multiple things, and you are not able to figure it out because there are several different things. Even though you have not tested positive for allergies, that doesn't mean that you don't have any. The tests are not 100%. You can have…
  • - chili, tacos, burritos, etc. - rice and beans - quinoa salads - perogies - pizza - pancakes, crepes, french toast, waffles - tofu or bean scrambles/hash - baked potato - green salad, marinated salad, grain salads, macaroni salad, potato salad - curries - soups - stews - casseroles - muffins - burgers/patties/loafs -…
  • That's a pretty broad question! My recipe database is currently about 5,000 recipes. The possibilities are endless. Even with my other dietary limitations, there is an incredible range of food to eat and I am always trying new things. Hints? Lots of whole plant foods. Investigate international cuisines. Don't go for a…
  • I am vegan & gluten free. Not currently logging in my diary, but here for questions if you have them. I would also recommend beans, peas, lentils - depending on what kind of kidney stones you have and how much you find legumes affect them. Do you know which kind of kidney stones you get? The oxalate content varies a lot…

  • A lot of people think that "mild" means intolerant and "severe" means allergic. This is not true. Allergic means that histamines are produced. Intolerant means that they aren't. An allergy can be mild - tingling tongue, itch, headache, blurry vision, etc. You do not need to have anaphylaxis or a rash for it to be an…
  • Could be an allergy or oral allergy syndrome. Keep track of it. Pay attention to if it is worse at certain times of year (when there are particular pollens in the air) or when eaten in conjunction with something else (almonds, strawberries, pineapple...) I am okay when I eat bananas as long as I haven't had anything else I…
  • I just do bananas, strawberries, and vanilla. No need for sweetener or nuts, much lower calorie.
  • I'd recommend reading "The Starch Solution". If you are sensitive to grains, there are other starch/carb sources that will still give you the energy and satisfaction that you need.
  • So, your dilemma as I understand it is getting foods that your boys can/will eat, and still being able to afford your own foods that are all gluten free. Fruity Pebbles - I understand this is now gluten-free. So if you are buying them for kiddo, you can have them too. Bacon - usually gluten free. google brand names Peanut…
  • Okay, will post back when I have some time to review and think through some recommendations. On an aside, has anyone ever talked to you about "food chaining" for Lee? Might help if it is sensory/anxiety issues. Then again, he sounds very much like kids I have run into on my other celiac groups -- a certain subset of gluten…
