My son has food allergies, eczema, and asthma. The toughest thing I’ve had to deal with is “What to feed him when he’s allergic to everything.” His blood tests and skin tests showed mild to severe allergies to almost all foods, including simple foods like potatoes, onions, peas, and delayed reactions to milk/wheat.
When his eczema turned from moderate to severe with stomach aches at the age of 3, I knew it was time. It was time to put him on an elimination diet, as his allergist had recommended. The toughest factor was cooking up flavorful meals for a child with 7 ingredients when he had been eating pizzas and pastas.
So, my journey started…All dishes are vegan and gluten-free, strictly use organic ingredients for all of my recipes… I started experimenting and designing and architecting. I’ll share some simple, allergy -free recipes I use for my son. It takes so long to test new foods when the eczema is always active, and difficult to tell if the flare-up is caused by food or environment or something else altogether. So, it was definitely a long process to introduce some foods.
All berries, milk, citric fruits, nightshades, dairy, gluten, wheat products, colorful veggies such as bell peppers, and nuts are not allowed on this diet. Ingredients allowed on my son’s allergy friendly recipes or eczema elimination diets:
- Apples – (restricted)
- Moong lentils
- Rice Bran Oil
- Honey, Cane Sugar – restricted
- Turmeric – restricted
