View Full Version : Embarrassed of my food allergies/sensitivities
I am stuck a bit coming up with raw food recipes with all the sensitivites I have to certains foods. Can someone suggest recipes that do NOT include
Nuts --except almonds
Seeds--except hemp and flax
All spices-but ginger and herbs
I am "ify" with corn and avocado.
I am getting a tad bored with the same things and would like to vary it. I am also seeing alternative help for my allergies---I am MUCH better than I have been years ago. I am so willing to make it on my RAW journey:)

Maybe you could try this but leave out the salt and garlic.
5 C. zucchini, shredded
1/4 C. lemon juice
1/2 bunch fresh dill
1/2 C. olive oil
1/2 tsp. Celtic sea salt
2-3 cloves garlic (I only use one)
Place lemon juice, sea salt, garlic and olive oil in a blender and blend until smooth. When the dressing is mixed well, add the dill, pulsing the blender until the dill is chopped. Toss dressing with zucchini, mixing well. Enjoy!

That sounds simple and easy...I may substitute cilantro for dill..I am on a "cilantro kick" lately.

I have all those food sensativties plus some and havn't found too many recipes. The one I use myself is dates, honey, and a tiny bit of banana. I put it in the dehydrator and ti tasted just like banana muffins. I find it easier to just eat simple meals of fruit and large plain salads (lemon/lime/orange juice on top).
Thanks for sharing Dreamrawalwz--
I wish I could eat some of the yummy things I read--what I have tried zapped me of energy. I feel better not knowing I am alone....Could you share more prep directions with your banana muffin recipe please. I do not have a dehydrator but I am planning to get one soon from my hubby:)
Do you have any recipes with avocado??
I agree just plain fruit and salads with lemon are okay for today..but I know I can do better.

Picked these up from various sources. Got lots more. You have to search a bit, but you'll find lots of recipes out there for you. I'd check http://fromsadtoraw.com and http://living-foods.com (not to mention the recipe forum on this site) first, because they have gads of recipes.
cherry almond pancakes
2-1/2 cups cherries
1/4 cup almonds
1/2 cup ground flaxseed or flax meal
additional ground flaxseed or flax meal as needed
1/2 seeded orange or juice of 1/2 orange and a little zest
4 medjool dates, soaked (optional)
process, adding flaxseed as needed for a thick pancake batter. using a 1/2-cup or 1/4-cup measure, spoon out onto teflex. carefully spread out into 1/2"-thick rounds. resist flattening; as they dehydrate they will flatten. dehydrate at 90 degrees for 6 hours. flip carefully, removing telfex, and dehydrate for 3-4 hours.
note: if you are making these for the morning, make larger size pancakes.
marinated onion rings
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup honey
1 tbsp shoyu
1+ white onions, cut into rings
mix vinegar, honey and shoyu. add onions and marinate at least 24 hours.
peppermint licorice tea
6 tbsp dried peppermint leaves
3 tbsp licorice root
8 cups water
combine in 2-qt container and sun brew 1-2 hours, or in indirect sun 2-3 hours. strain and serve. store in fridge.

I use the Ultimate Chopper, but I think a food processor is good too. I usually use 1/4 to 1/2 a banana (the older kind, not ripe, but sweeter). Then i put in the whole canister fresh dates after I've pitted them. You can add a tbs of honey if you want. Next add water a little at a time until the consistancy is kind of gooy. Next put it on the sheet for your dehydrator and make sure it's spread out evenly, but not too thin. After about 6 hours at 110 degrees it gets a fluffy-ish cakey appearance and you may need to flip it all over by sections to dry out the other side.
Thanks for your help..and cute comment--YES!! Food eating can be a challenge. I also forgot to mention I am sensitive to sweets...:( and heavily combined foods. I WISH I could eat nuts and fig/date combos...:(
Thank goodness for ripe juicy fruits and my juicer. I still have to pick up my dehydrator.:)

I thought it was just me that was sensative to heavy combinations of foods...:) glad I'm not alone. I also thought my body was weird because it can't handel too many sweet things (dried fruit) or fats (Avos, olives)
no no no!! I am the same way--however that does not mean I accept it happily and do not push the envelope....I find it easier to just pack fruits and veggies. What fats DO work for you??
I seem to handle avocados alone or blended in a soup.

The cherry pancake recipe sounds great....I wonder if you could make muffins...I'm working on getting a dehydrator (the small, round kind) and want to use mini muffin tins. Sounds great.
