Welcome to the February 7, 2008 edition of living with food allergies carnival.
RecipesWe've got some great ideas for you this time!
Sally Parrott Ashbrook presents Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, High-Fiber Muffins (Delicious, too) posted at Aprovechar.
Alisa presents Light & Easy Bananas with a Dairy-Free Caramel Sauce posted at Go Dairy Free.
Alisa presents So, I have been baking ? posted at One Frugal Foodie, saying, "Testing out recipes from My Sweet Vegan, Namaste Foods, and for two other upcoming food allergy cookbooks! All dairy-free, some egg-free, some nut-free, and even the Namaste gluten-free bread mix!"
News and Research
MLO presents When Two Communities Collide - Food Allergy and Infertility/Women?s Health Communities Meet Here posted at MLO Knitting, saying, "This is just an observation I have found as two communities I am in have collided with one another."
TheNourisher presents Bread Dread: Are you Really Gluten Intolerant? posted at Nourished Magazine, saying, "Many believe themselves to be gluten intolerant. How then, did our agrarian ancestors live on the stuff? Clive Lawlor puts the blame for modern digestive damage from wheat and other gluten grains squarely on the shoulders of the food convenience industry."
Victoria Groce presents New Research: Probiotics for Eczema, and a Word of Caution posted at About.com Food Allergies.
Support and Advice
Gina Clowes presents ABC's to a Safe Valentine's Day Party! posted at Allergy Moms Blog, saying, "It's sometimes easier to get others attention with something in writing so I prepared these tips in a printer-friendly format. Hopefully these tips will make dealing with food allergies at Valentine's Day a little easier."
Gina from Allergy Moms Blog (see above), has a great idea for our carnival--themes! Some of the ideas she suggested are a Recipe edition, a "Safe Lists" edition, Travel Tips, and Restaurant Chains. Send in more ideas for themes, too. So, I think we'll start off with the Recipe theme--for the next edition, February 21st, make a blog post (or two) with some of your favorite tried and true recipes, and send it in to the carnival! Of course, if there's something else you're itching (ha!) to write about, feel free to send it in, too.
And let me know if you'd like to host! I've already heard from Victoria, but we are always looking to spread out the hosting duties and rewards (lots of hits).
That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of living with food allergies carnival using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
