Food allergies are a growing health concern in today’s society. According to the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, as many as 15 million people suffer from food allergies in the US alone – and today we get the chance to hear from one of them. Read more »

I have found it very difficult to use any manufactured spices or oil/vinaigrette type dressings due to the natural flavor and modified food starches sometimes being derived from milk or wheat compounds. According to my research food manufacturers aren't required to list what natural flavored ingredients are specifically because many manufactures hide their "secret ingredient" to their products under the "natural flavored" category for protection of their recipes. This is bad for an allergy sufferer because if any ingredient containing a specific allergy compound is derived from or used as a preservative in the product it's not usually on the package labeling. I basically eat all natural self made meals, spices, etc. If I try to eat anything with milk, wheat, egg, natural favors and/or modified food starch I go into an anaphylactic reaction within 2-10 minutes deepening on the amount consumed. It's been horrible, average reaction has been 2-3 times per week unless I just stick to eating only homemade foods. However, as bad as this all sounds I'm thankful to be eating much healthier now.

Help! My little 2 year old is bit allowed wheat dairy or eggs. We discovered after she had grommets under GA two months ago. They did a while heap if allegy tests and that and sesame seeds are a huge 'no no'. She suffered from terrible sinus and ear infection from 1yr old until the surgery. Anyway, taken her off the three foods and she is a much happier, more energetic little girl. I am struggling to keep up. However, we struggle with breakfast. She really misses toast and cheese sticks snacks. Any ideas for breakfast? Please...

Post image for How To Crack Open A Coconut

Coconuts are incredible. Not only are they delicious to eat, they’re great for your heart, and they improve digestion, give you energy, and lower sweet cravings. Read more »

If you're camping, you can use a sturdy camping knife to open it. After opening the eyes and draining the milk (you can open them with the tip of your knife and a small twig), just place the blade against the middle of the coconut and hit the blade with a heavy stick. A little bit of the coconut shell will come off, exposing the darker part of the shell. Rotate the coconut and keep hitting until you have a dark circle around it, then choose one spot on the circle and hit your knife into it repeatedly. The coconut will split in half perfectly. It's a bit more time-intensive but you get a really cool coconut bowl after you eat the meat!

after opening the coconut ,to seperate shell from meat ---heat that broken part on low heat ;shell part directly touching heat : for arond 5 minutes. leave it to cool. after 5 minutes you will find meat and shell seperate very easily.however big the broken part of a coconut it is.

I think the eggs / dairy confusion is because the eggs are usually in the dairy section or "eggs and dairy section" at the store! Thanks all who helped with locating dairy-free chocolate chips DARK - I like using the 60+ % cacao - hopefully I'll find that at Whole Foods!

Eggs are not dairy

My daughter is 16 and was diagnosed with celiac disease 5 years ago when she was 11. The only symptom of celiac she had was cuts on her face and hands. Her brother was diagnosed and therefore the entire family was tested and my daughter tested positive. A endoscopy was performed and confirmed she had celiac disease. She has been eating gluten free since diagnosed. The other weej she had potatoe pancakes thinking it was only made with potatoes but found out after she ate it that is was made with flour. We waited for her to get sick and nothing. Not even a stomach ache. A few days later she ate something else that had wheat and no problems, pains or issues. Could she have been misdiagnosed? Could she have grown out of being celiac disease? Should I let her eat wheat? I'm thinking of taking her to a different doctor than the one who diagnosed her but would hate to have another endoscopy done. Please let me know if anything like this has happened to anyone. Thank you
