peanut, gluten and lactose intolerant people are all just pansies that need to be culled from the herd
 
2013-06-13 01:48:18 PM  
Not so much with the allergies.

My wife, however, is type-1, so I favor two small side dishes (one carb and one uncarb) to just one.

good friend of mine has an actual gluten allergy. have just gotten into cooking for her and man is it a pain...

...but it's a new skill so, can't complain.
 
2013-06-13 01:50:01 PM  
If I'm making dinner for a friend and that person has dietary or allergy restrictions, I don't make the food that would bad for them.

If I'm making something for a cookout, picnic, pot luck, etc. I tell everyone "don't eat this is you're a whiny little biatch."
 
2013-06-13 01:50:46 PM  
Easy, cook what you want and have them bring their own food.

My chicken adobo recipe is gluten free if you use the right kind of soy sauce.
 
2013-06-13 01:52:22 PM  
I do my best to cook around my friend's dietary allergies and restrictions. I'll almost always make a substitute dish if I can't modify the main thing. I look at it as a challenge and a chance to improve my cooking skills in addition to showing consideration for people I care about.

instead of, you know, b*tching about it.
 
2013-06-13 01:52:44 PM  
i have a wheat allergy. there is still a shiatload of stuff i can eat. i'm not a biatch about going over to friends' houses. i will find something to eat without making a stink about it.
 
2013-06-13 01:53:34 PM  
No one in my immediate family has any food issues, but a close friend who I often cook with was just diagnosed with celiac disease. It's been an interesting challenge - and fun - to experiment with gluten-free options. There's a lot of good recipes out there. Though I have yet to find a gluten-free bread that doesn't suck.
 
2013-06-13 01:53:45 PM  
As someone who entertains often, my strategy for navigating allergies is freezing food. Not every dinner or dinner party is planned -- that's why it is good to learn how long you can freeze things. It also gets you out of the leftovers cycle. If I make a meatloaf, I figure I may as well make two and freeze one. I regularly cook vegetarian dishes so I usually have something in the freezer that could accommodate that need as well...

No one's asking you to b*tch about it.

We're just saying that you should force those peanuts down the throat of that genetic misfire of a friend.

I have a minor shellfish allergy. It means I don't cook shellfish.

It's annoying. I miss shrimp something awful. That was good eating. Ditto scallops. I never really got into lobster- just didn't have much taste for me. I can eat clam chowder with no issues, but a seafood bisque will usually have me throat clearing a lot... the same reaction I get to cats.

Thank God I'm not allergic to peanuts. I love me some peanuts.
 
2013-06-13 01:55:35 PM  
Let them bring their own food. It's their allergy, not mine.

Processed peanut oil is fine for me, cold-pressed, not so much. I also don't cook with or buy products containing canola as I have an intolerance to it.

When a friend of ours is over for dinner I make certain that I either serve poultry or fish as the main course, or I'll make a pork or beef roast for everyone else and make her something she can eat. She cannot digest meat from hooved animals (i.e. no beef, pork, mutton/lamb, venison).

No shellfish either due to allergies.

No particular recipes, but more on the line of carefully reading labels when shopping.
 
2013-06-13 02:03:25 PM  
HaHAha, no.

Fark your feels and self diagnosed crap.

Here's my recipe.

Ants and shiat on a Log

Celery
Peanut Butter, with extra gluten
Raisins
Little pieces of the cheapest bread you can find, that's the shiat.

Spread the PB in a stick of celery. Dot with poison raisins (ants) and bread (shiat).  Feed it to the neighborhood kids to save them from helicoptermitters.

Because I'm pretty sure Jews can eat that stuff, they just don't want to.

Yup. She's had that since she was a small child. At cookouts there are always things she can eat available, such as chicken or turkey hot dogs and burgers. My son goes camping every year with her family and jokes about how she's not allowed to cook the steak they always have the first night. They allowed her to do so the first year and she charred it practically beyond recognition.

I regularly get together with three girls for dinner and hanging out. One is a powerlifter, one is gluten sensitive, and one is Paleo. High protein, gluten free, no dairy/sugar/cultivated grains of any kind.

It's retarded.

dice tomatoes and put in a bowl
chop up lettuce and put in a second bowl
put shredded 4 cheese mexican cheese in a third bowl
open salsa jar and put it out
cook a couple of pounds of ground beef and put it in a fourth bowl
put taco shells out

let people make their own meal that may or may not include meat/gluten

Celiac disease (gluten) is nasty, but it is not an allergy.  Many people who are "gluten-free" have no evidence of celiac disease and are just being trendy.

Peanut allergy can be deadly.  For real.  Somewhere around 80% of people who carry a diagnosis of peanut allergy are not peanut allergic.

She cannot digest meat from hooved animals (i.e. no beef, pork, mutton/lamb, venison) -That's really odd.  Does she have alpha-gal sensitivity?

Excellent point, thanks for clarifying.

I honestly don't know. I just know that she's had this problem with eating meat from hooved animals since she was a young child, and that's years before I met her. I felt it was too nosy for me to go in depth as to the reasons why. She's like me when it comes to reading labels too.

And I do have a legitimate peanut allergy. Have had it since I was 16 years old, so over 40 years of not being able to eat PB&J sanwiches. I miss PB&J sandwiches. :-(

Wow, half the people in here are violating Wheaton's law in a way I have rarely before seen.

I suppose my son bleeding from his intestines because of his milk allergy is just him being a whiny, self obsessed, self diagnosed pansy?
When he was two weeks old?
Was it my imagination that this bleeding occurred, or maybe a practicing physician told me? Hmm?
Anyway.

When making food for people with milk allergies, Smart Balance Light buttery spread has no milk in it. My kid loves it.

Egg allergies: substitute coconut oil for eggs when baking. I often do this anyway, it makes the cakes much more delicious.

And you Wheaton's Law violators need to get a better farking hobby.

Will you answer a question for me? A woman I know has been going through thinking she's allergic to this or that and finally went and got a full spectrum test (or whatever it's called).

Results all came back negative. Gluten, corn, whatever else. All of it.  Great, stop blaming your mood swings on nonexistent allergies, right?

But no, the farking Doctor told her that the fact that she had been avoiding those foods (she hasn't been, at least not religiously) may still mean that she is allergic. Gah! Fu*king thanks a lot Dr. Enabler.

Should I hunt this guy down and smack him around, or is that legit?

No that's not legit.  Food allergies in adults have a very specific constellation of symptoms and moodiness is not one of them.  The NPV for food tests is quite high given her history.  Also. avoiding a food allergen will not turn your tests from positive to negative, unless, of course, your food allergy spontaneously resolved, in which case you're not allergic any more.

What's a "full spectrum test", BTW

 (Dr. Enabler- lol)

Yes, several times. They tested his stool twice, both times it came back positive for occult blood. He had severe vomiting, breathing issues, and failure to thrive for three months because no one believed it was allergies, which is why I have little patience with those who dismiss them. He had an endoscopy, was put on three different medications that didn't work, had several breathing treatments, and was diagnosed with everything from laryngomalacia to reflux before someone finally figured out what was wrong. I had to quit eating dairy and several other foods so I could continue to nurse him. 18 months was the earliest they could scratch test him, it came back positive for seven different food allergies. He had another scratch test at 4, which came back positive only for dairy. The same guy scratch tested him, and said kids often grow out of the milder allergies, but we don't know about milk. We're testing again this month.

If you had to stay up all night because your baby could barely breathe, if you had to clean up projectile vomit every two hours, if you had to take your baby to the doctor twice a week and subject him to an endoscopy at one month old, and the whole time you kept asking if it could be allergies, AND EVERYONE WAS farkING DISMISSIVE OF YOU AND TOLD YOU YOU WERE PARANOID, only to find out that yes, in fact, it was farking food allergies, and they almost killed your infant, you'd be short on patience with this issue as well.

His father and grandfather have the same allergies, only not as severe.

The problem is not misdiagnosis. The problem is that, like autism, it's now being diagnosed correctly.

It certainly wasn't about getting attention. I had to send my daughter, who was two, away from home for almost a month because I seriously thought my son was going to die, and I couldn't drag her around from doctor to doctor to procedure to hospital stay to doctor with me. my baby was dying, and I was helpless. My mother kept telling me not to get attached. It was that bad. Since then, I have watched other moms go through the exact same thing. No one believes them. You have to understand, a hundred years ago these kids would have died. It was an accepted part of life. Now they can be saved, and pass on the allergies to their own kids, as my father in law passed them down to my husband and son.

People getting on a message board and crowing about how fake allergies are isn't helping anyone. It's just making people look like unfeeling, ignorant jackasses.

mysticcat: What's a "full spectrum test", BTW


It's when they put a grid on your back and prick you with a spectrum of contagions (allergens) in each quadrant--from gluten to roach feces.  Seen it done.  Pretty creepy.
 
2013-06-13 04:47:01 PM  
And quadrant is probably the wrong word.  I saw 10 x 10...
 
2013-06-13 04:49:39 PM  

mysticcat: What's a "full spectrum test", BTW


I have no idea. I just mean they tested for everything and that was the phrase that popped in to my head.

Thanks for the answer. I don't want to jack this thread any more since it's going green, but this confirms what I already thought.

Guess I need to dig up some research on how this stuff all works and show it to her.

If the tests are negative, that means you're not allergic to it, dammit.

2013-06-13 05:05:54 PM  
I have pretty severe allergies to nuts and shellfish.  I don't care what people make at a party, as long as they don't mind that I ask what is in anything questionable.

I kinda prefer that people DON'T try to cook around my allergies, because they can get weird about it.  "HERE, TRY THIS DIP, THERE'S NOTHING YOU'RE ALLERGIC TO IN IT."
 
2013-06-13 05:07:18 PM

I avoid peanuts, sunflower seeds, that sort of thing at the kid's birthday parties, because it's just not worth the hassle.  No special recipes needed, just making sure ingredients are nut free.

I don't cook for my one celiac suffering friend, because he's told me not to bother, it's not worth the risk.  He hates most gluten free stuff anyways (and most of what he sees as gluten free bandwagon jumpers).

That's probably the best advice anyone can get about gluten free cooking if you aren't equipped or prepared for it.  Don't risk it.

If you can't have gluten, but still want a sandwich, then do this.

Make chicken salad, tuna salad, etc.  Some kind of chunky protein thing
Pull off some big romaine leaves.
Wrap chunky protein thing in lettuce.
Eat like a burrito.

If you are allergic to eggs, but still want an omelet, then sucks to be you.

This.
Our crowd gets together at least two times a month for a bbq and the hosts grill what they want. If your a special needs eater, prepare for yourself.
Also, Boca Burgers never touch the grill until the meat is done.
