I have multiple food allergies but not severe enough to carry an epi-pen (but have had children in my classroom who have had them ready at all times). Can you eat eggs for protein? Half of a hard boiled egg is a quick snack. The best thing I found was to keep it as simple as possible - basic meats and vegetables and fruits. Also, ALWAYS read labels - which I am sure you already do diligently. I bought roasted almonds the other day and got them home and found out that they had corn syrup in them, which is one thing that I react to (any corn product). They will go out of my house quickly. Welcome to the team. If you tell something that you miss, the team can usually come up with a substitute food. It is a challenge but also an adventure toward good health that is worth the effort!!!

In addition to non-celiac gluten intolerance, I have multiple food allergies requiring me to carry EpiPens at all times (i.e. all nuts and peas), hypothyroid and have been recently been diagnosed with diabetes! This is not only life changing.......it is CRAZY! Trying to substitute foods, esp. proteins, when you can't have nuts is quite the quest. If anyone else is in this boat, I would love company and the ability to share support and encouragement. Gratefully, Marianne
