  • I am so relieved to have found this site.  Everyone looks at me like I'm crazy when I tell them that I cannot eat turkey or chicken without a horrible bout of vomiting and "the runs".  I have a friend who is lactose intolerant and her symtoms are the same as when I eat poultry.  It is a real bummer because I Love turkey and chicken.  However, my diet consists of meals built around whitefish and red meat.  I am almost forced to be a vegetarian.  I am just happy that I found other people who share this allergy, and I'm going to refer my "doubters" to this site.

  I agree about this site. Welcome to the life w/o poultry. It is no fun! I have told several of mu "doubting" friends about this site too. Good luck. I too feel as if I am going vegetarian, not always by choice.

Have two grandchildren with multiple allergies. Severe asthma is only one. Also allergic to Wheat, soy, eggs, all forms of dairy, nuts and some fruits. Now just discovered the source of constant gastrointestinal problems. Allergic to chicken, beef and pork! Children eat chicken all the time, 3 year old has up to today enjoyed(?) soy milk as he did not seem to have an allergic reaction to it. 5 year old drinks only Rice milk and is highly allergic to soy. Now both must drink Rice milk or an extremely expensive formula which tastes AWFUL. It is what they both were given around 9 mos. when mom stopped nursing. Not sure what we will be able to feed them now as they are not excited about vegetables. Broccoli,both like. Corn okay, and youngest loves peas while his brother does not. Tomatoes are not liked and green beans are also on the no list. The little fish the boys eat is the bad kind, corn meal battered and fried.

Mom and I are both at desperation point for meal ideas. Allergist did not test for reaction to beans but only the 5 year old likes them at this time. Afraid to have 3 year old tested for fear he will be allergic.

Any ideas for meals? Truly need help.

Thanks.

I am so sorry to hear about all the food allergies. A few web-sites that may help:glutenfreepantry.com and glutenfree.com . While these sites seem to name only gluten free items, there are many items free of corn, soy and number of other items as well. For many years I have orderd form them as 2 of my children were allergic to corn, wheat and soy. After 9 years they seem to tolerate the wheat well and the occasional soy, but corn(and it's by-products) still give my son fits. I have also been recently diagnosed w/poultry allergy. I have found that Morning Star Brand (it's all vegeterain)has good tofu chicken nuggets. They taste amazingly like real chicken. They also have several varities of "burgers". I am not sure how their breakfast sauage tastes, but the bacon is pretty good. The Morning Star brands are in most grocery freezer sections. As for the items found on the above web-sites, if you live in an area with a rather large and/or wellstocked Health Food Store or Co-op Store, they may carry some of the items. Good luck, hope this helps.          woaj

Thank you for your suggestions about Morning Star. Wondering if all of their product are made out of soy or soybean, both boys allergic to soy. Tofu is soybean curd, delicious but still soy. I have checked some gluten free sites in past while looking for things without wheat, but now I will check again more thoroughly to see what else can be offered for the boys. Life is too complicated, working and trying to keep these kids feed and healthy. Thanks for your input. Mothers Market is about 45 min. drive but will be visiting more often and both Trader Joe's and Henry's are already where we shop a lot. Both have a lot of gluten free and other products which might appeal. Hard with no dairy, eggs, soy or wheat now no chicken beef or pork.

Again, thank you!

I thought about the soy issue after I had written,but do check out their products, I don't think they all contain soy. Another thing that might help is a book called: Allergy Self-Help Cookbook : Over 325 Natural Foods Recipes, Free of All Common Food Allergens by Marjorie Hurt Jones. This was very helpful whne my kids were first diagnosed w/multiple allergies. Mrs. JOnes is a nurse and allergy sufferer. It has great information as well as recipes. Good luck.

Will be looking it up at Borders and on Amazon. Thank you again for your time and thoughts.

I do not have a computer at home so when not at work cannot respond as fast, but will always respond.

Again, THANK YOU!
