The Food Allergy Cookbook

book cover imageThanksgiving is fast approaching and all I can think about is a turkey dinner with stuffing and pumpkin pie. Fortunately, I don't have any major food allergies. Unfortunately, a lot of other people do.

While it is easy to find a cookbook that focuses on one specific food allergy, it is not as easy to find one that has recipes for multiple food allergies. However, The Food Allergy Cookbook by Carmel Nelson and Arma Ibrisimovic is one of these rare books. Inspired by their own food allergy experiences, this cookbook contains recipes that take into account allergies to dairy, gluten, soy, corn, shellfish and nuts! The book is also peppered with personal stories, healthy suggestions and tips for travelling, eating out, and even visiting the grocery store. If you have food allergies or know someone who does, this cookbook provides recipes and more - including Thanksgiving stuffing made from quinoa!
