Your Healthy Diet Menu May Be Different From Mine!
The definition of a healthy diet plan for my two kids is quite similar but there are a few unique diet tweaks for each.
They are both allergic to:
- Barley/Cornflour/Gluten/Malt/Oats/Rye/Spelt flout/Wheat flour/Wheat
- Dairy Mix
- Peanuts/Sesame Seeds
- Soybean flour
Now thinks about all processed foods. 99% of processed foods contain the above item(s) and therefore cannot be in their healthy diet menu.
Here are some of the unique allergens:
Son: Milk/Yogurt/Tuna/sunflower seeds/Mango/Tomato/Honey
Daughter: Cheese/banana/Kiwi/Pepper/Bell Peppers/Coffee
Planning healthy meals became very difficult!
- no gluten pastas
- no gluten breads
- no pizza
- no Subway
- no fast foods (that is ok)
- no cereal or oatmeal
- no peanut butter and jelly
- no salsa
- no chips
Now you know why my son asked tonight, “Is tomorrow egg day?” and gave me a big smile when I said ‘yes’!
