With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

My Meals

Today, as some of my facebook friends read, I bought and made myself lemon poppy seed muffins. They were only for me. I am the only one that could eat them. When I typically go to the grocery I only buy what the kids can eat and what I’ll make Nathan for dinner. Our grocery bill is crazy. My boys aren’t even teenagers yet. There are just so many different foods we need for each person, it adds up quick. As i ate the muffins, yes I had two right away, I got to thinking about what I would make for dinner for just myself.
So I’m asking the question to all allergy parents what meals you have given up that you would love to fix for yourself!
Here are the 5 I would love to have.
1. Tuna noodle casserole. I know, sounds gross, but I’ve only had it a few times since being married. Nathan can’t have it with egg noodles so the few times I made it I used regular noodles. He probably can’t have it anymore since his allergies have gotten worse. That would definitely be number one.


2. Scrambled egg sandwich on toast. I don’t even buy eggs anymore. I maybe use 12 eggs in an entire year. Maybe.


3. Shredded chicken sandwich. It’s an Ohio thing. Think shredded chicken,cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup and saltine crackers all mashed up and cooked together. Oh I just started drooling. Here’s a link to finding one of these yummy sandwiches if you’re ever in Ohio.    Scroll down for the recipe for these yummy sandwiches.


4. Chicken and dumplings.


5. Grandpa’s grilled chicken with Hawaiian bread. Mom’s Lemon meringue pie for dessert!




Nothing too crazy. Things that I would definitely have in the rotation if I could.

That reminds me. I had to ask Gage questions for a “get to know me” sheet for school. One question was what is your favorite thing to eat. I asked him and he just stood there. I said just pretend you can eat anything you want. You should have seen him smile at that thought. He answered apples.

  1. Mac and cheese. Pizza. Egg salad! That’s about it, really.

  2. Ooh, looks great! Unfortunately I’m the allergic one so I often find myself making foods like these for my family, but I can’t eat them.

    I just came from Amy’s Adventures of an Allergic Foodie blog where you mentioned looking for a rice, nut and dairy free milk. Here’s my favorite: Put hemp seeds in a blender with water, around 1/2 cup seeds in 3 cups water. Add a pinch of salt, a little vanilla and sweetener if you wish. I like to use a couple of dates. A high speed blender like BlendTec or Vitamix is best, but you might be able to work it out in a regular blender, probably chop and soak the dates first, and maybe blend the seeds in about half the water first.
