Once egg was safe, I took my basic Quinoa Drop recipe and tweaked it. The result is a very yummy, very filling bread-type finger food that Zac just loves! I’ve made these into flatbreads, and I’ve also not smoothed them out on the cookie sheet and left them mounded for … Continue reading →
Welcome to “Quinoa Week”! Recently it seems a lot of FPIES Mama’s have been finding luck with quinoa as a safe food for their kiddos. Since then, I’ve been asked to share any “simple” quinoa recipes I have, and I understood the need. When trialing single ingredients at a time, … Continue reading →
I’ve said before how Jed can’t have cooked tomatos because of his fructose malabsorption. We’ve avoided ketchup ever since. This is sad for us, because ketchup is one of our favorite condiments. One day last week I made spaghetti for dinner. I got busy and didn’t take it off the … Continue reading →
When Jed was a little baby and first got his MSPI and egg IgE diagnosis, I went through every item in my pantry reading labels. Tons of food had to be disposed of, but there were things that were technically safe that we could keep. However, as time went on, … Continue reading →
Pre-FPIES and pre-fructmal, one of the most delicious creations to come from my kitchen was my vegan banana bread. ALL of us loved this bread! It was flavorful, sweet but not too sweet, moist, and all but melted in your mouth. It was still substantial enough to also withstand being … Continue reading →
After 19 months of eating nothing but beef on my TED, I’ve made a lot of hamburgers. A LOT. So many, you’d think I would be sick of them by now. I’m not, though, because I discovered the true secret to making sensational hamburgers! If you browse online, you’ll find … Continue reading →
And I do mean from scratch! I’m talking raw seeds to creamy sunbutter here. For those of you just joining me on this journey, let me fill you in on why I’m going through this ordeal. My son, Zac, is severely reactive to corn and soy. I have hunted and … Continue reading →
We are still snowed in. Well, actually, we’re ICED in, which is worse. Theoretically, we could leave the house. We couldn’t safely leave until about 11:00 a.m., and we’d have to be back by about 4:00 p.m., or else we’d risk getting caught on icy roads as the temperature re-freezes … Continue reading →
On occasion I come up with a recipe that just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. This is one of them. Of course, that could be just because it’s pumpkin pie, and that happens to be one of my FAVORITE desserts of all time! Pre-TED and FPIES, Thanksgiving … Continue reading →
Before I talk about this AWESOME recipe, I thought I’d give you a little update. Last night, Zac had a definite FPIES reaction. No confusion; his diapers told the story quite clearly. (I’ll refrain from details, as I’m about to talk about food!) We’re not 100% sure it is the … 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.
