With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

Shout out to Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

I feel like our EE x 3 sort of has an evil side. For example: Nathan can have pork but not the fruit that commonly goes with it. Gage can have yeast but none of the grains to go with it, until now!  Charlie can have wheat but no yeast. I would say that’s almost worse than trying to eat gluten-free. (note to self, celebrity Gluten free diet – topic for another day. grrrrr) So trying to find a bread product for Charlie is hard unless we make our own.

One grocery trip I was feeling a little adventurous and decided to check out all the Pillsbury products. Low and behold a few of them don’t contain yeast! So I grab some crescent rolls and head for home. Charlie told me he would eat anything for dinner as long as it was in the shape of a ginger bread boy. As if dinner isn’t heard enough. I break out my creative mommy mode and get to work. I opened up the tube and rolled some out. Found a cookie cutter as close to a ginger bread boy shape that we had and cut some out. I used the scraps and made little parmesan sticks and finished up the rest of the dough making regular rolls. I always bake the dough a little before adding the sauce and toppings. Sauce is always also homemade since Charlie can’t have onion or garlic. Which I’m so over and ready to have those two things back. The boys both thought dinner was awesome and ate it up! Charlie thought the sticks looked like snakes so those were extra cool. I recently discovered the actual Pillsbury pizza dough doesn’t have yeast so we’ve switched to that.

Three cheers for mommy and an “awesome” dinner!

  1. I just found your blog and I can’t imagine the struggle you deal with daily and how you find the time and energy. I am an EE mom to One child and it is exhausting and frustrating. I would like more kids but I fear not being able to have the time and energy to deal with more than one EE child with their different allergies. I feel like I spend a lot of my time searching for new foods or how to make certain things.
    It looks like you are doing an amazing job. I’m glad you have a site. I’ll have to keep up on it for new ideas.
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. I agree with Lindsey. One is exhausting…Thank you so much for blogging and sharing information about EE. Because of you and others that have shared personal experiences, I have found some answers and have found it therapeutic to research about EE online. I decided to write my own blog about my experiences with my son who has EE. If you want to link it on our site, I can reciprocate too!
