Major food allergies!
Posted Tuesday, September 21, 2010 at 11:50 AM
Hello Vegan Kickstart Team,
First of all! I'm loving the program! The emails, videos and phone call reminders are GREAT!
My dilemma: I have major food allergies, and would love your advice.
My question: Would it be okay to take Mediclear Plus by Thorne Research. Base: Brown and White Rice Protein, it does have 400 IU Vitamin D3(not vegan). I was taking it prior to Kickstart Program, and felt wonderful.
Recommended for inflammation, food allergies, and gastrointestinal issues.
I've been eating fruit and nuts for breakfast. Lunch: Steamed veggies, quinoa and Parma!. Dinner: Veggie soup. I'm always hungry, and have lack of energy.I'm afraid to eat beans, because of being allergic to Lima Beans. I've been omitting the garlic from all the recipes, but I sure miss my garlic.
How can I better balance my nutritional intake? Am I still having a balance diet if I'm not eating legumes, beans and tofu?
This is my high range category: Garlic, Soy, and Lima Beans.
Medium range:Almonds, Wheat Gluten, Lettuce, Oats, Peanuts, Spinach, Rye, Spelt, and Sugar Cane.
Thank you for all that you're doing!
