It began four or five months ago. Sometimes after eating in the evening, my kiddo would complain that his throat itched or his tummy hurt. Of course, I would prepare for full scale anaphylaxis. Several times there were additional symptoms. Hives on his face, tightness in his throat or the terrifying slurring in my child's speech that meant his tongue was starting to swell.
If you're still looking for a food allergy friendly Thanksgiving side dish, this simple salad may fit the bill. It's vegan, nut free, gluten free and cooks in just minutes on the stove top, so it's not fighting the turkey and baked sides for oven space, and tastes delicious either warm or at room temperature.
Ever since daiya slices appeared at our local health food store, my kiddo has been requesting "cheese" sandwiches almost daily. This one is on homemade Honey Oat Bread spread with Earth Balance Margarine with a couple of slices of turkey bacon slid into it.

I just returned from the absolutely amazing Food Allergy Bloggers Conference, where I finally was able to meet some of my favorite people from the allergy community in person for the first time. Jennifer Sprague and Homa Woodrum deserve more thanks than I can possible give them for organizing the first annual FABlogCon, or as Jenn calls it, HugFest.
