I'm having a really hard time finding things for my son to eat on his new NO sugar, fruit, gluten, legumes, or dairy diet! I can find plenty of gluten free items but then it has sugar or fruit in it! Then if it's sugar free it has some other component in it he can't have. Even more frustrating are the added ingredients in things like bread and butter pickles have high fructose corn syrup in them! Pretty much forget any prepackaged or store bought items because they all have some added ingredient primarily sugar or high fructose corn syrup! And since fruit is out it's pretty limiting on breakfast choices. I'm worried about his salt intake and don't want him to eat eggs everyday of the week so I'm struggling to come up with ideas! What an interesting battle! Prayers are appreciated and any recipe ideas would be great!

    I don't have any answers just emoticon and prayers! Hope that you find some answers soon. My youngest dealt with food allergies as a baby and it was tough. Hang in there!

    So sorry, Gretchen... Have you talked to Siobhan or Kim Woodard about it? They both seem very knowledgeable about those type of diets... Praying that you find a solution!!! emoticon

    Poor kid, I'm assuming he has a lot of food allergies. Most things that don't use sugar replace it with some kind of fruit. Maybe use Stevia or Agave nectar if he's can have that. You might try doing some searches on the internet for recipes. They are out there. Praying that the Lord helps you and your son.

    Have you asked your doctor for a list of approved foods or asked that your son be referred to a nutritionist? My diet is less restrictive than your son's, but I started cooking most of my food after finding that so many foods have a long list of ingredients, including high fructose corn syrup, that don't seem healthy to me.
