Two weeks ago, we started my son Beau on an Elimination Diet, which eliminates the top 8 most common allergens: wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, peanuts/tree nuts, fish/shellfish. After his recent Eosinophilic Esophagitis diagnosis, I knew an Elimination Diet was the next step, so I’ve been scouring the internet for tips recently.
As much as I love to cook and bake from scratch–and I frequently do–sometimes it’s nice to have go-to packaged food that I can feed him when I need to prep a quick meal, at the park for a picnic or as we’re having to head out of our house due to a last-minute showing.
So far, here is my running list of Top 8 Allergen-Free Convenience Foods:
- Pancake and Waffle Mix:
- Short Stacks: Gluten-Free Vanilla
- Gluten-free Oatmeal:
- Bacon and Sausage:
