Re: New Food Find: Follow Your Heart Creates Cheese Free of Dairy, Soy and Peas

Monster Mom ·
So I'm looking at this and thinking it may be something to trial a little with my son this summer. We know potato and coconut are doable. Would the extracts have a lot of proteins in them? And food starch is usually a corn source, right? OMG I just realized he may be able to try this! Also heard it may be right at our S&S

Not sure what the modified food starch is - could be corn or tapioca. Definitely not wheat or they'd have to declare that.

Re: New Food Find: Egg Replacer Product Promises to Scramble Like Real Eggs

KFA Food Bloggers ·
How do I use it? To use VeganEgg, follow the instructions on the package to mix the powder with ice cold water. For example, here are the directions for using VeganEgg to make a scramble: Whisk or blend 2 level tablespoons of VeganEgg per ½ cup of ice cold water until smooth. Heat a lightly-oiled skillet to medium-high. Pour the mixture into the skillet. The "egg" should sizzle in pan. IMMEDIATELY begin to scramble. Use a spatula to stir frequently and evenly scramble the mixture until eggs...

This definitely sounds exciting. My heartfelt thanks to the people at Follow Your Heart. However, I didnt find this on amazon yet. Btw, it would be helpful if some more nutritional information is included like how much fat, protein etc. Though I am not good at nutrition, I have seen "Carrageenan" in a negative light in nutrition blogs in general. Is this a concern? Can anybody throw some light?

Wow! I am very excited to try this out! I am more interested it trying it out as an egg replacer in things like brownies (which are difficult to make without eggs) than as actual scrambled eggs. I am pretty sure Eli would not touch anything that looked like an egg! I noticed that Amazon is not selling it yet but did find it at Vegan Essentials : https://store.veganessentials....our-heart-p4615.aspx They are sold out but are getting more in soon.

Carrageenan is being removed from many non-dairy milks now because of consumer demand. So Delicious has removed it from many of their products and I believe will be removing it from all products eventually. I believe it is a possible carcinogen made from seaweed and also causes gastrointestinal distress for some. It gives me a headache if I have too much of it. Here is more information about carrageenan: http://www.cornucopia.org/wp-c...rageenan-Report1.pdf

Re: New Food Find: Egg Replacer Product Promises to Scramble Like Real Eggs

Carrageenan is allowed in infant formulas in the US, one of the most closely scrutinized & regulated substances for sale. "Nutrition blogs" give me the heebie-jeebies b/c they don't have to back anything they say up - they just make their site look pretty, say what they want & rumors spread like wildfire. Very few people go digging for peer-reviewed journal articles to back up what they've read. The citations I've seen about carrageenan studies have all been done on animals. That's...

Re: Dairy-Free Climbs!

DGraham ·
Lots of kids with food debris climb on the rock wall at our local gym - cheesy chips, cheese sticks, etc.. Tough when you have a severe allergy to dairy and love to climb! Logan works hard to be allergy-safe primarily by not touching his face while climbing (can be tricky when you are itchy!!), and by washing his hands thoroughly immediately after climbing.
Comment

Re: 6 BEST 11

DGraham ·
Climbing out in nature is generally allergy-safe, but some equipment is shared (ropes, clips)...so the cross-contamination risk is still there. Logan takes precautions by avoiding touching his face, bringing his own bottled water and snacks that can be eaten from a container/wrapper and by washing hands immediately afterwards. Add to this the fact that emergency medical help is farther away. Takes courage!

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

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...

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.

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.

Yup.

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...

Yes, it was about PB&J but "no PB- take a bunch of cheese and dairy" is a constant thing. It's advice everywhere and always frustrating. Parents share things like this and everybody proudly shows up PB free but still deadly to kids with the most common childhood allergen.

It would just be nice if the back to school "don't do nuts" posts were chosen to be lighter on other common...
