Most families that deal with food allergies hear about the Top 8 food allergens on a regular basis. That being said, many times, a person(s) food allergies are well beyond the Top 8 food allergens. This website is geared towards the top 8 however, all recipes can be altered and changed to your specific allergens.
This means, not every single recipe is free of the top 8 without making certain substitutions (which will typically be mentioned). It is up to you (the reader) to know and understand your particular food allergies and adjust the recipes as needed.
And, ALWAYS, check and double check the ingredients of any packaged food or ingredient for cross-contamination or other ingredients. Cooking for those with food allergies is a never ending journey and it’s not always easy, some textures will be different than what is typically considered “normal,” some foods may not even look all that appealing but they’ll taste great-you just never know sometimes!
The most important thing is to be diligent, know your own allergies and needed substitutions and be willing to experiment!
I hope you find some inspiration for great tasting recipes on this site as well as support to know that you are not alone. Together, we will overcome food allergies in the real world!
