Do you or your child suffer from a wheat allergy? The following list of foods are wheat free, and pretty delicious too.
Just because you have allergies doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy food still. When we first found out Lincoln had food allergies I felt so lost! We’re still in the figuring it out stage, but I’m feeling a bit less overwhelmed now that we have it on the calendar to see an Allergist.
One of the top allergies we believe Lincoln is suffering from is Wheat. I wouldn’t say it’s a life threatening allergy as of yet, but he has lived his whole life with the sniffles. When we started taking wheat out, they have come less often. His complaints of “hair in my mouth”- a common way for kids to describe an allergy attack – have also been non-existant since removing wheat.
This was the one allergy that had me scratching my head on how to remove. It seemed every box and package I picked up contained wheat. Things I would never have guessed had wheat in them, had it listed in the allergy information.
I’ve found the best way to elimate wheat is to make everything from scratch. You know the ingredients going in and there are a fair amount of flour substitutes out there. The following is a list of wheat free recipes you can make and enjoy whether you have a food allergy or not.
