Food Allergies? Cookbooks for Inspiration!
Having a food allergy can make you feel hopeless on what you should eat. Take back control by getting into the kitchen. Grab your kids, family or friends and create some delicious dishes together – food that you can all eat safely.
I am constantly reading cookbooks to find new recipes, or get inspiration to create something new. With multiple allergies, my family cannot always find a recipe that is EXACTLY what we can cook. So . . . no problem, we just change it up! Swap out items you cannot eat with something you can that would still compliment the dish. Swap out gluten-filled items with gluten-free ingredients, or dairy products with non-dairy alternatives. Get creative! You will be happy with the results – even if it takes a few tries!
In the meantime, these cookbooks are full of inspiration to get me into the kitchen. Some contain recipes I follow and others have multiple ingredients we need to swap out for something that fits our needs. In the end we have delicious dishes that we all enjoy.
Hope this gives you a little inspiration!
