Here's a link to Cybele Pascal's website that features allergy friendly foods www.cybelepascal.com/ www.cybelepascal.com/

You can have a very healthy diet based on legumes and plants. As is the case for all vegans, learning how to balance everything so that you have adequate nutrition requires a lot of work in the beginning. That's why I suggested that you work with a dietitian. To get started, you might want to read these books in addition to the Stepaniak and Vesanto book I mentioned in my earlier post:

"Becoming Vegan: The Complete Guide to Adopting a Healthy Plant-Based Diet" by Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina

"Vegan for Life: Everything You Need to Know to Be Healthy and Fit on a Plant-Based Diet" by Jack Norris and Virginia Messina

"The Complete Idiot's Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition" by Julieanna Heaver

"Living Vegan For Dummies" by Alexandra Jamieson

"The Engine 2 Diet" by Rip Esselstyn

making your own seitan (from vital wheat gluten) is easy, and you don't have to add soy sauce to it. a great recipe in both appetite for reduction and vegan brunch.

plant-based vegan diet is the way to go - you get your protein from beans, lentils, and all the vegetables that contribute. lots of great cookbooks (including those two), and many many blogs - check out fatfree vegan, oh she glows, happy herbivore (lindsey's cookbooks may be perfect for beginners).

good luck!

I'm pretty sure seitan has soy in it so be careful. Eat lots of different fruits and veggies. Beans are also good to eat and a good sorce of protien. There are some veggie burgers you can get that don't have soy and you can also make your own.

I would check books out at the library, you can get alot of cookbooks and see how you like them.

You can use flax seed and water to use in place of eggs. You can also use coconut milk , or rice milk (coconut milk is thicker than rice milk)

You just have to be a big label reader.

Indeed fermented soy is generally much less allergenic, e.g. tempeh.

I eat a lot of whole grains with at least 3g of fiber. This lends itself to protein. I eat beans a few times a week. I mostly eat whole grains, veggies, and fruit. I don't like nuts, so I don't eat them.

What I hear underlying your question, is "If I don't eat soy or nuts, where do I get my protein?"

There are a lot of protein sources. Seeds are also very protein-filled. Are you allergic to seeds, too: flax, hemp, chia, sesame (I love tahini, which is sesame-butter). Sprouts are also very high in protein. You can check the ingredients label on Garden of Life's RAW Protein, which is made all from sprouts, no soy.

Some veggies are also higher in protein. Broccoli has about 2-3 grams per cup.

You could become a vegan. They don't eat eggs or dairy. Then, just don't eat nuts or soy. It's getting harder and harder to avoid soy though, because a WHOLE LOT of processed food makers have started to add it to foods that you would normally not find soy in; everything from bread to icecream.

There are lots of cookbooks out there that don't have soy in their recipes, My cookbooks are all 15 yrs old or older so I have lots of recipes that don't include soy. : )
You could also use your regular cookbooks and just cook veggie, fruit, grain, and bean recipes, leaving out things you don't want to include. I liked the Vegetarian Times magazine, that I use to subscribe to years ago, and their cookbooks. I also use the McDougall cookbooks, but don't like the taste of a lot of their recipes.

There are a number of vegetarian and vegan teams on SP that you could join for ideas and, there are a number of helpful people on this team who will tell you about the books and sites they like for recipe ideas, as well.

Good luck and welcome.

P.S. There's a new 21 Day Indian Vegan Challenge starting on June 4, that a number of us are going to try. You can type the name into the SP search engine and find it, if you're interested. emoticon

That would make you vegan by default :D purchase Ener-G egg replacer (works wonders!).

Also - are you allergic to coconut? I mean I know "nut" is in the name by I'm not familiar with this allergy. But you could try Hemp Milk :)

And as a meat replacer... Look into seitan. And are you allergic to all soy products? I hear sprouted soy is different. You may want to research that :)

With all that said - any recipe can be converted to vegan, trust me :) also - consider a more whole foods/ plant based diet. Which doesn't consist of much, if any, processed food but mostly veggies.

Good luck! :)

You might find some good information in the book "Food Allergy Survival Guide" by Vesanto Melina, Dina Aronson, and Joanne Stepaniak www.amazon.com/Food-Allergy-Survival

Since none of us are health professionals, I suggest you consult with your physician and ask for a referral to a dietitian who can work with you to develop a diet that meets your nutritional needs.

Hi Everyone!!

Ive always been a meat eater but after going without for 2 weeks I have to say that i do like the way I feel: healthier :)

I want to become a vegetarian but I am allergic to eggs, dairy, soy and nuts.

Most recipes I find online have most if not all these ingredients in them

So I guess im asking what is the healthiest way for me to go about this considering my diet limitations

Thanks
