Egg Allergy / Re: Looking for Advice
« Last post by hk on Yesterday at 11:39:32 PM »
My 13 yo dd will be graduating from egg OIT this week.  She failed a baked egg challenge on the first tiny bite about 18 months ago.  Now she has more or less breezed through egg OIT in 3 1/2 months.  She had two minor reactions in the office early on in the treatment.  Our allergist offers OIT and SLIT to every food.  We will be moving on to peanuts/tree nuts/sesame combined next and then one more phase (probably SLIT) to her remaining allergens.  She was cleared for cross-contamination to egg a few weeks ago and it has been life changing for our entire family!  best of luck to you!

CMDeux - I almost never come on here anymore.  I had no idea that your daughter is eating eggs now.  That's wonderful!

Found these in a variety store. Imported, from Spain I think. Jelly candies made in peanut free facility, available in various countries.

I was thinking along the same lines as Janelle.  Maybe add a pinch of sugar, a pinch of dill (or pickling spice mix) and a bit of vinegar - it would be pretty easy to customize to your child's taste.  Or, you could even just pull a little out for your child before adding the relish to the rest of the batch and not add anything to replace it - my kids would have been fine with that.

We are heading to TN in August for the solar eclipse.  We will be staying with my BIL & SIL.  My MIL & FIL will also be there.  They all LOVE to eat out.  We rarely eat out due to multiple food allergies including milk and egg.  Can anyone here recommend a place that is good with allergies in the area of Franklin or Nashville?  I see there is a Magliano's in Nashville, so we could try that.  They always get rave reviews.  There is also a Mellow Mushroom in Franklin.  I hear they make dairy free pizza and are good about CC.  I am nervous but would like to have something in my back pocket if they insist on eating out...

It may be the area that I live in, but other types of pickled vegetables are pretty available here - I would probably try carrots, green beans or asparagus and just chop them finely to get the pieces to be relish sized.  If that isn't available you could try giardiniera (a mild variety, unless you/your child like spicier foods) chopped finely. 

Another option might be to boil your potatoes with some pickling spice in the water or marinate the tuna with pickling spice and a bit of oil.

I have a kid that is allergic to cucumbers. I'm looking for some good substitution for pickle relish in potato salad and tuna salad mostly.

It's been several years since I stepped foot in one.  Never ate, walked in and turned around.  Funddruckers in my area have barrels of peanuts and people just take handfulls.

It's been a while since we've been.  I don't remember anything on the menu being nutty other than possibly the desserts, but those are separate.  I'm pretty sure their menu varies by location, though.

I've never been -- sorry!  What's their website like?

It was too long ago when we went to be of use to you. Back in the early 2000s there were unsafe things for PA DS.
