      You will just have to be creative and learn a new way of eating. Make sure you get enough protein through beans also look at quinoa ( it is a perfect protein).

      Coconut and Almond milk can be found in most grocery stores.

      Gluten free products are more easily found in the store as well.

      Just know you are not alone.

    • After living with a allergy to eggs most of my life I can tell you its not easy.  I have learned to do with out or modify recipes to accommodate my allergy.  When I go out I let them know right away that I am highly allergic to eggs.  Question them about everything and if they do not know you need to find out.  The last thing you would want is to end up in the ER.

    • You may have to forgo eating out, but if you will stick to foods in their most whole state as much as possible, eliminating the ones you mentioned, you will get used to it. This way you can avoid additives that may contain traces of the foods you are allergic or sensitive to.  

      If you do eat out, go for salads, steamed veggies, and have them hold the seasonings. For traveling, make your own trail mix with dried fruits and nuts.

      Keep in touch and let us know how it’s going!

    • Thank you to all here for the support and suggestions...I am just so amazed t how much I have to eliminate out of my diet...vinegar...soy...anything with yeast(brewers/bakers), wheat...molasses...TEA...especially Back Tea.  mold is everywhere and most everything is a catalyst to causing mold...no more leftovers...I can’t find books on yeast or mold free diet...everything else but.

      and yes, Tracy...I am grateful that I beginning to find out more answers to why I have felt so yucky...but man-o-man this is going to be hard...I am happy I have support.  

      Thanks for your support!

    • Amy have you looked at amazon.com? I have a few books from them on gluten/yeast free diets. I’m sure they will have mold ones too.

      I wish you luck thru this challenge!

    • Good luck,  Amy.  I am very allergic to soy and it is in everything.  I rarely eat out, never eat refined snacks and make almost all of our meals from scratch.  It is a big adjustment, but as you go along, you will find you feel and look so much better that it will give you more enthusiasm.  It is a trial and error kind of living, but good health is so worth it.  I found a fringe benefit...I lost 12 lbs and I saved a lot of $$!   I wish you the best and great health and energy!

    • Vikki - you are always a great source of information.  

      Yes - Amazon has good books.  Also if you have a Whole Foods in your area, they can help as well.  My nephew was tested and he eats gluten/dairy free.  It helped his breathing out tremendously.
