I am looking to increase my veggie recipes but I have the limitation of not being able to eat peanuts or tree nuts (eg almonds etc), I seem to have got stuck in a rut of the same old, same old and I am getting bored! Any help for quick lunches, evening meals and snacks welcome
Can you eat seeds? you could substitute pumpkin or sunflower seeds for many recipes that involve nuts.
I can yes - the problem then arrives with the packing, lots of seeds (here in the UK) have the message "packaged in a factory that handles nuts" which means I can't have them either :(
Our directory is intended as a resource for people with peanut and nut allergies. It contains foods, helpful products, and much more.
Also, check out this discussion link http://www.peanutallergy.com/boards/where-to- buy-safe-soybeans-and-sunflower-seeds#
Someone else with a severe allergy to tree nuts found a company that responded to his inquiry.
Their response (in part)
"I am pleased to inform you that there are no peanut products used in the processing of David sunflower seeds . Also, the plants where the in-shell sunflower seeds are produced are not used to produce products containing peanuts."
and for clarification they also stated,
"Peanuts or Tree-nut are not processed in the same facilities as the David Sunflower, Pumpkin or Sunflower Kernel products.
David Toasted Corn products ARE processed in a facility that also processes "tree-nuts". This is noted on the package label near the ingredient statement. ConAgra Foods Consumer Affairs"
Same link mentions that the makers of "sunbutter" also produce shelled sunflower seeds that would be safe for you... and you can get them online.
oooh thank you! now that will come in useful!
I do yes - I try and have eggs a couple of times a week
that's a good idea - I used to do my own beansprouts - maybe I should start that off again!
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
