The Food Allergy Survival Guide
I just wanted to say thank you for this book. I live in a split vegetarian household with multiple food sensitivities. Needless to say, finding food we can all eat is challenging. This book has brought so many goodies back into our house that we believed were gone forever. We’ve had more than one birthday without any cake, but now we can have cake, cookies and even the occasional pizza!
The best part for me was all the information on food allergies. I’ve been sensitive to meat, despite the fact that everyone said that was not possible. My migraines after any ingestion of flesh screamed otherwise. This book showed me that no, I wasn’t crazy. It is possible to have food sensitivities even to meat.
The nutritional information has eased my mind about calcium consumption for my milk sensitive son. It has also armed me to be able to offer the best diet possible for our little one on the way.
A positive side affect of this book is that my husband looks at “the whole vegetarian thing” very differently. He loves the lentil and rice soup and the different bean salads. He’s highly allergic to wheat and he believes the muffins are a miracle.
Thanks for offering understanding and compassion to people who are not only “weird” because they don’t eat meat, but also because they can’t eat a lot of other “normal” food either.
With deepest gratitude,
The Cascarelli Family
