What is the Recipe Resource?

Are you or your family on an exclusion diet? Suffer from complex allergies and struggling to find substitutes which are easy, fast and portable? Then you have found the right place!

The Recipe Resource has been set up to support those catering for multiple food allergies, particularly in children. My youngest children suffer from EGID (Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disease) which amongst other things manifests as reflux and constipation caused by food allergies. We are at present on a diet which excludes all dairy, wheat and soya and in the past have excluded egg also.

I started this project as so many people seem to be struggling with allergies and intolerances, and providing a broad spread of alternatives not full of sugars, fillers or preservatives can be quite a challenge. When my two were younger it was easy to find baby foods with only a few simple ingredients, and the supermarkets stock a variety of adult "free from" foods, but children are sadly neglected. If you are excluding multiple food groups then unless you want high sugar, tasteless or spicy foods on the whole you must make them yourself.

Please email new recipes to me via the comments facility on this Blog and appropriate ones will be added!
