Our new allergist gave us a list of websites that I would like to offer you. I’ll give them to you as I check them out and see what all they have to offer 🙂

I always want to share The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN)

We also have The Food Allergy Initiative

And of course, don’t forget about Kids With Food Allergies!

Happy Saturday!

Grocery Trip

See what we came home with? This is our grocery run after Maya was given back pork and had soy and wheat taken away.

In the Dairy Section we have:

  • Soy Milk
  • Rice Milk

In the Produce Section we have:

  • Kale
  • Bananas
  • Broccoli
  • Jalapenos
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Baby Spinach

In Meats we have:

  • 5lb Chub of Ground Beef
  • Pork Chops (for Maya! YAY!!!!!)

In Everything Else we have:

  • Refried Beans
  • Unsweetened Applesauce
  • Salsa
  • Bar-b-q Sauce
  • Corn Tortillas
  • Quart Freezer Bags

It’s a rather small run, but with this added to my pantry stash I very well may be able to feed the whole family for a week with this 🙂

I hope you all have a lovely day!

Happy Happy Joy Joy!

We just made it back home from meeting with the allergist at our Children’s center. I have a feeling of hope, relief, of well… yay, lol. Their whole team is fantastic. They did their job! They talked to me about EoE and explained it in a way I’ve never heard before. The doctor used a sock and pipe analogy. It totally made sense for the first time. He said that the esophagus was supposed to be like a sock, expanding and contracting to suit the food that goes down. In EoE patients, the esophagus turns into a pipe, making food very difficult to go down. He told us to avoid the top 8, validating my concern with wheat and soy. Then he gave pork back to us. Then the dietitian sat down with us and worked with me to figure out what all we could do to help Maya. I left with a plan and not feeling alone. I was very impressed and sooo very grateful. They also gave me a bunch of websites that I will share with you in a separate post so they will be easy to find.
