I'm wondering how you all survive having multip family members with food allergies. I don't usually like "requiring" my 4 old ds to eat something because I trust that sometimes it's because the food doesn't feel good to him. In hindsite, I've looked back at the foods that I really didn't like as a kid and now see that most all of them are foods that I am sensitive to now. So I really try to avoid doing this to my kiddos. However, now I'm finding that I'm going nuts trying to find foods that we can all eat and enjoy.
I used to love to cook and am a foodie at heart but with all of our allergies, I find that we are eating out WAY to much just so that each of us can order something that we can eat.
I am sensitive to the nightshade family, chicken and turkey (I'm really a vegetarian anyway so those don't matter), sugar, chocolate, finding that I'm becoming sensitive to dairy and also soy (thanks to a soy hair conditioner I was using). <sigh>
DH is reacting to beans. DS 1 is sensitive to corn, sugar, chocolate, turkey, and now reacting a bit to agave nectar because we use it to sub for sugar. He's also wanting to eat ALOT of dairy now and I'm wondering if he's developing a bit of a sensitivity to it to. Oy. DS 2 is rice, oats and a little dairy.
So you all can see, and I'm sure empathize with, my problem. We can't keep eating out all of the time but I'm at a loss as to how to cook w/o making 2-4 different meals each night.
What do you guys to do make meal times easier?? Help!!! TIA!
