    Hello, all!

    My kids and I have a variety of allergies ranging up to anaphylactic food reactions and EoE. Recently, my husband (and his sister, states away!) developed a very obvious birch pollen OAS reaction. It's been hard on my husband getting used to avoiding foods, because he never had to when we all did. His OAS extends from apples/cherries/typical fruits to raw almonds, too, so we've started baking them in granola or chex mix...seems to be enough to keep it safe and enjoyable for...

    I blog on all types of our food reactions and diet issues at foodallergypantry.weebly.com, and I'm excited to participate more here at Freedible, too!

[Or at least, that's the way I remember the story!] Your husband is at least fortunate to not be the first in the household to become a #customeater - I'm sure he has lots of support!!  More ...

      Ha! I think maybe we are too hard on my husband. And maybe it's harder in one sense; even though his OAS won't send him to the ER with anaphylaxis, heHa! I think maybe we are too hard on my husband. And maybe it's harder in one sense; even though his OAS won't send him to the ER with anaphylaxis, he remembers how good apples, cherries, and peaches are and misses them. My daughter's never had ice cream or pizza and doesn't see what the fuss is about them. What a twist...  More ...

      I think that's certainly harder when you develop something as an adult. Otherwise, you don't miss what you've never had.

  • Hi, all!

    Just in case you're still looking for Thanksgiving recipes, it occurred to me that I should make sure you've all noticed the tag in our recipes search filter for "no raw fruits that don't get cooked by the end of the recipe" -- I made that for all of us!

    And, one of my favorite things about our Community Cookbook is that our members, being custom eaters, really experiment with unusual ways of doing things - which often leads to new ways to experience COOKED fruits! Check out, for...
    Hi, all!

    Just in case you're still looking for Thanksgiving recipes, it occurred to me that I should make sure you've all noticed the tag in our recipes search filter for "no raw fruits that don't get cooked by the end of the recipe" -- I made that for all of us!

    And, one of my favorite things about our Community Cookbook is that our members, being custom eaters, really experiment with unusual ways of doing things - which often leads to new ways to experience COOKED fruits! Check out, for instance, the many cooked cranberry relishes in our Thanksgiving feature!

    Anyway, good luck with the lines if you're still out shopping, and I hope you have a marvelous and fruit-friendly Thanksgiving!!

  • I just have to share with some folks that "get it" how psyched I am to have (seemingly) regained the ability to enjoy raw celery! It seems like such a small thing compared to my remaining list but that is one #OAS hurdle I was not enjoying!
