anybody know of any websites where i can find meal ideas without eggs. I was just reading over allergy info about eggs, i didn't know that pasta/ macaroni may have egg protein in it!!! My doctor told me, even if my son doesn't have a reaction to food with egg in it, that he still should not eat it. I'm hoping he will out grow, the doc said the more i keep out of his diet, the quicker he may out grow. My son just turned two and is also allergic to nuts and all fish. We also are in the process of getting rid of our dog and cat. ALLERGIES SUCK!!!!!

I am in the same boat! My son was diagnosed with an egg allergy after he almost stopped breathing after both eating eggs and having the flu shot. I have been trying to find recipes to help him but it is sometimes so difficult. I did not know there were such things as an egg substitute. He has been begging me for eggs so to know there are things out there I can give him makes me feel so much better!

I definitely feel your pain, Amy. We just found out my step daughter is severely allergic to eggs as well. Learning things she can and cannot eat has def. been a learning process, but to keep her healthy it's worth it. :-) I have found a few recipes on allrecipes.com specifically for egg allergies. Be careful, though. I've heard that the shots they have to get before going to school may contain egg. Also, we found a box of egg substitute (made from soy, I believe) at EarthFare the other day. You add hot water to the powder and use it in recipes in place of the egg. Good Luck!

We have found lots of tricks to alter our recipes. We substitute 1/3 cup of applesauce for each egg in our meatloaf. We have also done the weight watchers cake recipe....one box cake mix plus one can of diet soda. Pineapple cake with diet 7up topped with cool whip and crushed pineapple is great. Several homemade choc. cake recipes are out there that use vinegar and baking soda in place of egg. Hang in there...You are not alone.

Cherrybrook Kitchen offers a lot of foods that are peanut free, tree nut free, dairy free, egg free and gluten free. They taste pretty good too! A good site to find Cherrybrook and other foods that are "free" of common allergens is http://www.peanutfreeplanet.com/ .



We started testing our daughter for environmental allergies (dust, pollen, animals, etc) when she was 4 and also had her tested for food allergens - already knowing she was allergic to eggs and peanuts. Every couple of years the egg reactions would decrease, but unfortunately peanut reactions got worse. She out grew her egg allergy when she was 9. She is 11 now and is still allergic to peanuts, something she will probably never out grow. Each child is different, maybe omitting eggs all together will help your son out grow his egg allergies sooner. Good luck & keep reading those lables!

My son is egg allergic and has been eating pasta.  I buy whole wheat Davinci pasta.  It doesn't have egg in it and is processed on seperate equipment than their pasta that contains eggs.  I agree.  ALLERGIES SUCK!!

Allergies do bite !  I have two children Zachery will be 7 and Janelle is 4 1/2.  Both were diagnosed as infants with the severe food allergies to milk, egg, peanut, wheat, shellfish.  I was able to - wiht help of my pediatrician - to alter my diet to continue nursing both children until they were 1 and ready for soy milk.  I use a lot of applesause  to bake with instead of eggs and mashed bananas are also egg replacer.  Ener g egg repalcer is GREAT too.  I've found store brands of pasta are eggless.  Good luck hang in there.  My two have outgrown some food allergies, stil have egg, peanut and shellfish. Life is a little bit easier.

My son has peanut/nut and egg allergies and yes it does make life complicated.  He was diagnosed at 6 months and now we find he is behind developmentally in the feeding department.  He doesn't yet feed himself with a spoon (17 months) and likes the taste of most things put not the texture of everything...because we've been restrictive with his diet. No eating off Mommy and Daddy's plates.  I go to health food stores and buy egg-free pasta and baking mixes.  They are a bit expensive but since I cook them only for my son, they last a long time.  Also, most pasta in baby foods is egg-free and if it isn't it should say on the label.

There are pastas that do not have egg or egg protein in them.  The FDA requires manufacturers to list egg if there is any trace of egg in the item.  My son is allergic to eggs and has done well with Reinzi, Luigi Vitelli pastas.  Stay away from Ronzoni and Barilla, they are manufactured on the same equipment with egg pastas.



Also, a great way to make a cake/cupcakes/muffins without eggs is to substitute a can of diet sprite or diet coke with the mix.  All you do is add a can of the soda to the cake mix and bake - works great, tastes great and really low in fat!



Good luck, I know its hard.

Though I don't have a web site for you, using the Ener G egg replacer in your every day recipes has been a life saver for me in  pancakes, cakes, even meat loaf...also the Kid Friendly Allergy Cookbook by Hammond and Rominger is a great resource.  Good luck to you!

Good luck to you and check out the food and allergy network. There are so many things you can make by substituting the egg. Good luck to you!!
