Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

Steph - that's a good point - about prioritising health issues (food allergies over cancer risk). I still am uneasy of introducing another health risk into my son's life, however. My son has 8 food allergies that we know of so far including wheat and potatoes, EoE plus environmental and I have several food involving severe anaphylactic responses to soy and shellfish and all seafood and many environmental allergies as well we both have autoimmune issues. I will look at the Safe Eats...

Hugs Helen~. I can certainly understand the cancer concern as my husband is a lung cancer survivor. We also balance 4 kids (1 of whom is autistic with many developmental delays), food allergies, etc. I don't worry overly much re things like junk food, lunch meat etc. My kids all eat fruit and veggies, whole wheat stuff, things like salmon, etc. For my peace of mind, I have to pick and choose my battles. Anyway, do check out our resources, forums, etc.

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

Chamomile ·
Yup. For instance, I am all about environmental safety and recycling and such, but for two years when I had small children, was a single mom and had no dishwasher, I bought an obscene amount of paper plates and cups, rather than having to face a huge mound of festering dishes that I simply could not face. Do I think it was the healthiest and most ecologically-sound option? Nope. Would I recommend it to another mom going through the same thing? Absolutely. Regarding processed meats, I...

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

HelenDamon ·
Some simple ideas but I am confused as why you are suggesting parents give their kids processed lunch meats, pepperoni, etc. These processed meats often contain wheat as filler and are filled with carcinogenic nitrates. Even if you find a wheat free pepperoni or lunch meat, they are still full of unhealthy levels of sodium and fat. I can't believe a health professional is actually pushing lunch meat as a healthy lunch!
Comment

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

Jen ·
As always, read labels to ensure the food is safe for your allergy set. Yes, some of these do include processed lunch meat. While not the healthiest, it is a good protein source and everything in moderation. These lunches are paired with veggies and fruit, so a good balance overall imo.
Comment

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

HelenDamon ·
I disagree with idea that a twice weekly consumption of pepperoni or salami for a child is "moderate". Find me a pediatric oncologist who would recommend such a diet. And look at the American and Canadian Cancer societies for nutritional advice - both advise to avoid these foods.

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

Allison ·
We all have to do what is best for our own families. For instance, my son is allergic to various foods that other kids take for routinely might take for lunch (eggs, dairy) as well as peanuts, tree nuts - and the sesame and mustard allergy rules out most forms of sausage, salami, and other kinds of lunch meat, unless it is a special brand (read: pricey). For a child with few protein options who can't have it, they often want it. It doesn't mean I would let him eat it every day even if he...

Re: Back-to-School: A Week of Wheat-Free Alternatives for Lunch

Kids With Food Allergies ·
We're sorry that you are finding the lunch alternatives unhealthy. We try to appeal to a wide range of parents and realize that everyone needs to make decisions based on their family's needs including prep time and cost. With that in mind, healthy often translates to "safe" foods. There are healthier versions - low fat, low sodium, uncured meats.

Helen, what allergies are you managing? I will state up front that the immediate tasks of avoiding our many allergens and filling my 4 kids' bellies 3+ x/day while educating them and running a household, plus manging a tight budget and maintaining my sanity, are always going to get priority over strict adherence to best practices for cancer avoidance. The perfect can be the enemy of the good, sometimes. Parenting kids with food allergies is a daily dip in the puddle of stress. I think we can...

If coconut is safe, there is coconut aminos. Otherwise, I've had good success using umeboshi vinegar. It doesn't have the same depth of flavor (or color - it's purple which can be an odd color in some things), but give that salty "bite" to things. Another options is balsamic vinegar plus salt. That's a little sweeter though. If you can do fish, nuc mam (Vietnamese fish sauce) is another option.

I tried this bread and my family loved it. My older son who doesn't have any food allergies ate 2 slices with butter and wanted more. My husband didn't think it tasted like gluten free bread at all! Thanks for this recipe. I was using egg replacer before and it didn't have much flavor. I like the extra vitamins that we are getting by using sweet potato too. ��

If you are corn-free then you should NOT eat xanthan Gum. Out of all the patients I know with reactions or allergies to corn they all react to xanthan. A better choice for the corn-allergy population is guar gum. Also, for the very sensitive all of the ingredients needed to have been sourced carefully to avoid corn cross contamination during harvest and processing. When I saw this product on the shelf I was very disappointed to see xanthan. I know a few companies who claim their xanthan is...

Re: New Food Find - Gluten-Free Banza Chickpea Pasta

Kathy P ·
Thanks for sharing that. I've found it to be very individualized on corn issue. Neither of my kids ever had issues w/ xanthan. It's important to know how to I know sometimes xanthan cause issues not related to corn for people. Not all xanthan is cultured on corn. I know Bob's Red Mill brand is on wheat. Some have issues w/ guar gum as well since it's a legume and can cause GI issues in some.
Comment

Re: New Food Find - Gluten-Free Banza Chickpea Pasta

Dinydeek ·
There are definitely different sensitivity levels to corn products. I know we cannot use Bob's of any type because when we contacted them they even said there is a risk of cross contamination to corn because of their procedures. Guar gum definitely is an issue for some with legume but isnt derived from corn. There does seem to be a part of the population that both reacts to wheat and corn, but I know on the various corn allergy support groups it is strong recommended to avoid all xanthan gum...
