So many food allergies....need suggestions

eljones6925 | Jan 28, 2014 10:02 AM

I need some assistance with substituting foods that i am allergic to for ones I can actually eat. I am allergic to a lot of food....wheat, milk, soy, carrots, rice, eggs, nuts, bananas, cantaloupe, whole grain, cherries, tuna, salmon are some of the main ones. I have more but these are the foods that cause hives, non-stop coughing, breathing problems and swelling/bloating. I know that it is a lot and I am very tired of trying to figure out what to eat without a reaction. I was diagnosed with food allergies after my second son was born and for years I have been just eating a lot of salads, yogurt and chicken and some fish. I stay away from bread and pastas because it sets off a coughing spell where I have to grab my inhaler. I try to follow new diet plans but everyone has wheat/whole grain, tuna, salmon, carrots and nuts. I really need some help trying to figure out what I can eat in substitution of these foods and still lose weight. Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated.
