I’ve been talking to a lot of people lately that also have food allergies and I’ve been getting some good ideas for substitutions. I was just introduced to a magazine called “Living Without” that contains loads of recipes which are free from many of the top allergens; which is great! But then I started to think about those words “living without”. What a downer! Too often people only think of what foods they cant have if they have allergies or are focused on healthier eating habits. I know when I first got my food allergy test back I was pretty bummed out thinking about all the wonderful foods I’d never eat again. Thankfully that attitude didn’t last long and I started researching and tasting alternatives. As a result I’m eating far less processed foods, more fresh fruits and veggies and more lean proteins. Sometimes it’s still a pain when I got out to eat and have to quiz the server on the ingredients of half the menu but they are usually really accommodating. Although I thought the magazine was great, the focus should never be on what you’re “living without” but rather what healthy alternatives you can enjoy instead.
