Detective work pays off

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Today, I finally got some results from allergy testing done today. Remember I have cut out wheat and eggs? Well, I AM allergic to eggs. Although I don't wish allergies on anyone, I am glad that by eliminating food, then trial reintroduction I found what I thought was causing me to break out. I had the blood work a couple weeks ago, then the skin testing today that showed a positive result to an egg allergy.

That is why I have been breaking out. Who knows what else it has caused. They tested me for milk and eggs. Milk is ok. They have not done any testing on wheat, but I have pretty much not been eating it since February unless accidentally.

I have found some items to substitute in baking - yogurt in making banana bread or cookies. I need to keep reading labels, and experiment in my kitchen. Anyone know of mayonnaise substitutes since I can't have the eggs? Mostly for when I make tuna salad, though I can have it without, I just wondered if anyone had any good ideas.

Yay for clearer skin. Egg-sactly.

    Ground flax soaked in water is usually a good substitute for egg. I think they use tapioca flour too. Vegan baking, a new challenge for you! I use Follow Your Hear Vegenaise instead of mayo. Also substitue part Greek yogurt.

  While allergies are annoying, knowing what they are is always helpful. Yogurt, cream cheese, sour cream are all good substitutions. I sometimes smash avocados mixed with a little water instead of a dairy product since I am extremely sensitive to dairy and eggs. The avocados add an interesting flavor. I've never tried with tuna salad, only witch chicken.

    DEBORAH, you can use yogurt for mayo in salads and use cream cheese with it for sandwiches. It usually works for me, if you do not squeeze too much of the tuna broth it can be very tasty and the cream cheese will make it creamy. Let me know how you like it.
A tiny lemon squeeze will add a little tang like mayo has vinegar. Either one will help. Pat in Maine.
