Are you looking for allergy friendly vegan or vegetarian recipes?
Sometimes I just don’t feel like consuming meat, but what do you add to your meal to get all of your nutrients.
In my household we avoid beef and only eat chicken, turkey and on a rare occasion pork, but sometimes you just want something different or you may want to give your body a meat free diet for a few days.
Dairy and egg products have already been removed from our diet as those are known allergens.
When adjusting to this type of diet it is important that you still get all of your needed nutrients.
When planning a meal you should try to incorporate essential nutrients including protein, calcium and a variety of plant based foods.

So what is the difference between a vegetarian and a vegan?
Vegans generally will stay away from all meat, eggs, milk or any food that is derived from animals.
Vegetarian: may consume dairy and egg products.
Lacto vegetarian: eats dairy products,
Ovo Vegetarian: eating eggs, there are a few more categories such as semi-vegetarian, and ovo-lacto vegetarian.
When your diet is so restricted due to food allergies or a food intolerance it can be a challenge to find new creative meals, or meals that are quick and easy.
Additionally when you have food allergies it isn't easy to eat a certain way whether it is a vegan, vegetarian, raw food, Paleo or any other diet.
However you may find inspiration for new recipes or new foods in one of these diets, you just have to adjust for your allergens.
The upside and downside to this lifestyle is no more processed food. No more quick and easy meals or trips to a restaurant to eat out. You always have to cook your own food.
However this is a blessing in disguise as it forces you to eat healthier.
It takes some time to get use to this lifestyle and usually adjusting to making large enough meals so you have leftovers for the next day which I like to do.
