I too had a ride in the ambulance to the ER, allergic reaction to the Niaspan, for cholesterol meds, and fish I ate that night. I was home alone, 30 miles from the hospital. Passed out twice before I could get to the phone. Scary very scary.

did you know if you have an allergic reaction to food, mild reaction, you can counteract it with Zantac 150's? That's what they gave me at the hospital. plus I had taken a 2nd Zyrtec.

that would be very tough. I've just started sneaking in some tomato base products, can't do too many in one week though.
cheese was tough to give up too, did you find any good fake kind?
I've pretty much given up items on my foods list, I'm basically allergic to ragweed, but then the foods are the co-committents (I think I have this right). I think it's mainly the foods though.
I went all winter without getting sick, which is amazing.
Have you joined any Buddy support groups?

How's this answer? I just love the internet...


Can you substitute baking powder with anything?
Doesn't baking powder make it rise? I'm wondering what the difference between baking powder and soda. Anyways, please help. Thanks!

Baking powder substitute

For each 1 teaspoon baking powder called for in a recipe, use:

1/4 teaspoon baking soda plus 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar;

OR

1/4 teaspoon baking soda plus 1/2 cup buttermilk, sour cream or yogurt (to replace 1/2 cup liquid called for in recipe).

Wow, I couldn't live without potatoes, mustard greens wouldn't bother me, don't know if I ever had them.

Baking powder, hmmm, I know on Martha Stewarts website she offers emergency substitutions, maybe a clue is there. There is a product called "Egg replacer" at bigger grocery stores, usually in the health food aisle.

It certainly makes life interesting.

Oh, boy your list is double my list, but we have corresponding items in there; they are as follows

milk, eggs, dairy
fish, shell fish, pineapples, melons

my additional allergies are:
lettuce, spinach, alcohol, wine, avocado, tomatoes, citrus fruits, citrus acids, ascorbic acid, egads chocolate, plums

I'm sure there are a few more.

substitute for eggs in baking with applesauce, works pretty good, 1/2 cup per egg. I sure miss eggs though,of all the foods I've had to give up I wish this wasn't one of them.

milk I use soy, but I see that's not an option for you, have you tried the almond milk? I bought some but haven't tried it yet. there's a spot on SP that talks about it, and everyone was claiming it was pretty good. Of course, read the label first I don't know what else is in it.

I've been on Allergy drops for about a year now, and they seem to be helping me build up my system against things.

My dr. recently told me to try taking L-Glutamine vitamins, it helps the stomach digest foods better. I noticed a big change within a week of taking them. She's into the holistic healing, so I thought what the heck, I've tried everything else. I also take Zyrtec, Singular, and Veramist.

I hope this helps you some. Maybe we can compare some ideas, I'm always looking for help too. This team seems to have fizzled unfortunately.

I know I have allergies and on a web site for it, but never thought about cooking with food allergies. Hoping to pick up a few pointers.
