I’ve been wanting to make a hummus recipe for Jed for quite a while now. Snack foods that appeal to a toddler are difficult to come by when restricted by Fructose Malabsorption, and hummus seemed like something I might be able to make within his dietary limitations. Sadly, I hit … Continue reading →
There’s no fabulous story behind this recipe. I just got bored with the dinners I’ve been making and started throwing things together in the kitchen! It’s a bit of an interesting combination, but in the end it turned out pretty delicious. The grocery store had some gorgeous mushrooms this week, … Continue reading →
Cauliflower, oh cauliflower…why did it take me so long to fall in love with you? Sometimes in the kitchen, you discover something cool that is very useful – for one recipe. Some kitchen discoveries, however, continue to excite you with the many ways they can be reinvented. Such is the … Continue reading →
Now that summer is in full swing, one thing we’ve started up in the Summers household is using The Grill. I love the grill because Darrel is in charge of grilling (less work for me) and other than wadding up the foil and throwing it away there are no dishes … Continue reading →
When we started trialing quinoa, I got very excited. I knew that quinoa would offer a lot of variety in Zac’s diet (and, eventually, mine), and to start with I wanted to make him his very first teething cracker. I had seen a few recipes for homemade teething biscuits before, … Continue reading →
Last week we trialed asparagus on Jed. Thanks to the accidental lollipop ingestion the next day, I wasn’t able to get a good “read” on whether asparagus was safe or not. So I decided to try it again this week. I’ve also been seeking out safe bacon for him. I … Continue reading →
One of my favorite meals is Pot Roast. At the start of this elimination diet I felt confident I could maintain it because, well, my diet was basically variations of pot roast. At the risk of sounding boastful, I must say that I make an awesome Pot Roast. Really. Ask anyone … Continue reading →
One thing I figured out early on in my elimination diet is that I’m basically eating a modified (and greatly limited) Paleo Diet. I’m not convinced that strictly Paleo is the way to go, but I can’t argue that grains (specifically wheat) and sugar are poison for my body! Consequently, … Continue reading →
Years ago I found a recipe for something called “Chicken Hash” in a magazine. I never actually made it, but I saved it because it looked really good. With this dual-elimination-diet-thing going on in my house, I’m scrambling like mad to find edible meals to serve my family. (Delicious is … Continue reading →
FPIES stands for Food Protein Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome. It is a rare food allergy that affects the gastrointestinal system. Reactions are delayed onset, usually 2-4 hours after a trigger food is eaten, but sometimes even longer than that.
Children with FPIES have symptoms that range from severe (violent vomiting to bile and hypovolemic shock) to mild (bloody diarrhea, sleep disturbances).
There is no test for FPIES. It is diagnosed by clinical observation and ruling out other possibilities.
There also are no tests to determine trigger foods. FPIES parents must simply feed their child a food, then wait to see if they react.
