    I love how you’ve separated it by allergens. Being a mom of 2 highly allergic kids, this is agreat asset to the site.

    AWESOME! I was starting to think I had to go broke keeping my Asperger Son on his gluten/casein free diet! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    I love this idea! My daughter and her husband and three children are going to be moving in with us the end of the school year. That will be 8 of us under one roof. Cooking is going to be an issue and if I can save some money in the process I’m all for it!

    My 4 year old has autism.
    He is, at this point, gluten free and dairy free.
    Soy is in EVERYTHING!!! Does soy lethicin cause issues?
    And our pediatrician is hesitating to let us test him for food allergies or sensitivities.
    Any suggestions?

      @Karin H,

      Hey Karin,

      When we were GFCFSF (we are currently just CF with limited gluten), I did not give them soy lechitin.

      As for your pediatrician, get a second opinion perhaps?!? You want a supportive pediatrician as you walk this path! Ask your friends or others with autistic kiddos who they recommend and who they trust.

        Thanks so much…you confirmed what I have been thinking but was too afraid to put into words.
        I have friends who say they cannot afford GFCF for their kids, but by doing most of it from scratch, it really is do-able.

      @Karin H,
      find someone that will test him!! or do your own elimination diet. avoid all Soy for a month and then let one type in at a time and watch for a reaction which could be tummy issues or skin itches, etc. I have different parts of my face and neck that breakout depending on what I’ve eaten. Of course it took along time to figure out what caused what but once I realized everytime I ate blueberries I would breakout in the same spot. I started to put it all together.
      I started out gluten free and later realized that Soy was worse for me than gluten. But most gluten free snacks have soy of some sort. So as they say plain and pure food is better but I”m with ya sometimes it is nice to just have a cookie without baking it first. :-)
      also recommend reading “Louder than Words” by Jeannie McCarthy. it focuses on Autism but can be helpful for others like me.

    We are GF and dairy free for a family of 6. Only 5 of us need to be on this, but I am not going to make 2 meals so we are all on it. I make almost everything from scratch. See if you can join a Co-op. you will most likely have to order by the case(depending on how your Co-op works you may be able to split cases with other), but in my case it comes out to be $1-2/pkg cheaper per PACKAGE than the grocery or healthfood stores. Especially, Bob’s Red Mill products! And that is the brand we use most for the flours that I use in their
    bread,cookies, etc.

    My daughter is anaphylactic to eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shelfish, and sulfites. I would love for there to be a place for these as well, please.

    Do you have recipes that are sugar free? Just wondering incase I could not find the links. My husband is a diabetic so we are trying to eat everything with Splenda now. However, a lot of sweets are hard to make. For example, making a sugar free chocolate cake is a nightmare.

    GF cooking is the rule in our home too. It’s easy and cheap to cook boiled 3 lbs of boiled potatoes and keep ready in the fridge. Same with rice. Simple suggestions are to serve boiled or baked potatoes, yams, squash with many meals. One of our favorites is to stir fry 1 lb. ground meat with herbs, 1/2 cup broth and a tablespoon of catsup. Tastes much fancier than it sounds and it tastes yummy over potatoes or rice. GF bread can be really awful, as well as awfully expensive. But GF muffins, pancakes and cookies taste pretty good! Keep hardboiled eggs in the fridge, for quick protein food too. Happy shopping!

    Hi there would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re utilizing?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster
    then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider
    at a reasonable price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!
