Last Friday I took Maisie in for her yearly physical and while the doctor said she was doing great and she’s healthy, strong and growing along her percentile curve she was concerned about Maisie’s allergies. We have never had Maisie tested for allergies and I guess that it was always assumed that she had pollen allergies but lately pollen counts are at almost zero and Maisie is still suffering. So last Friday they drew blood and today the doctor called with the results and that’s why I need your help. Maisie’s tests showed that she didn’t have any pollen or environmental allergies but that she is allergic to egg whites, milk and wheat. Just frikkin great because that accounts for all her favorite foods.
It’s ironic because just yesterday I posted that Maisie eats Nutella on wheat bread almost every morning and now there is nothing in that sentence which she can have as obviously the bread has wheat and Nutella contains milk…Cr@p!!
Maisie’s favorite foods are pasta, cheese, Nutella, eggs and dumplings and it’s from the cheese, Nutella, eggs and dumplings where she gets most of her protein as she’s not a huge meat eater. So my dear helpful readers I need your help with food options for my girl as I have no idea what to feed her now that I need to remove egg whites, milk and wheat from her diet and I’m freaking out! Truly, anyone who has experience with this I would appreciate your comments.
In other food related news, I still have to plan my Thanksgiving menu but just haven’t had time to think about it yet. I do know that we are going to have Spice Rubbed Turkey with Cognac Gravy, the same turkey as last year as it was freaking amazing and I don’t even really care for turkey but I’m looking forward to having this one again. Past the turkey I just don’t know yet but I’ll figure it out. If you’re still looking for a fabulous turkey recipe, just click on the picture to be taken to the recipe.
