Can You Eat To Beat Allergies?
Although almost two hundred foods are known to cause some kind of negative response in those eating them, only eight types of food cause ninety per cent of these reactions:
- Milk (dairy)
- Tree nuts (eg almonds, walnuts, pecans)
- Shellfish (eg crab, prawns, lobster).
Luckily, there are plenty of low-allergy ingredients you can use as alternatives. What’s more, these options aren’t restricted to specialist health food shops but are widely available in all supermarkets. Wheat and gluten-free products like flours, pasta, breads and cakes are relatively mainstream, while dairy-free milks such as rice, oat, almond and quinoa milk and even eggless cakes are found in many local shops.
Don’t be disheartened if you do suffer from an allergy or suspect an intolerance as you can still make plenty of delicious and healthy recipes avoiding your trigger foods.
