Updates

A few updates…

We finally took A for scratch testing for food allergies last Wednesday. Her results came back negative. She was checked for several fish varieties, peanut, tree nuts, egg, and dairy (21 in total). To be honest the test results shocked me. I was certain that egg and dairy would be huge! Our next step is really the only viable test. Eating.

I ate a hen egg the day after the test. She had no rash. I ate 2 hen eggs the day after that. She had no rash. (I however don’t tolerate eggs well and had a terrible tummy issue both days)

Today I mixed organic cow milk in her mashed potatoes for dinner. Two hours later and no rash. Normally her rashes come on quickly after eating the offending food. I didn’t eat any of the cow milk potatoes just so I didn’t taint my milk for her.

So, food wise, things are looking up!

Poop wise, not terrible but not great. She is going every few days but it at least is not hard for her to pass.

She still has her face rash which I do believe may be as the allergist suggests: perioral and peridermal dermatitis. Not food related from the research I have done.

Paleo Coffee Creamer

Whole 30 creamer!

This is the creamer I made this morning for my coffee. Coming from So Delicious French Vanilla Coconut Creamer this isn’t ‘heavenly’ but it is satisfying!

Edit: 4 days in and I finally figured out a trick! Strain strain strain all the chunks out! The creamer gave some froth and it was much sweeter!

Last night I soaked 2 cups of dates overnight in 2 cups water. Pureed this morning and then strained. So sweet! When I felt I needed my coffee sweeter I added a tbsp! Much better!

I may have mentioned it before – C is addicted to coffee.  But she likes it sweet and milky.

We tried adding butter and coconut oil as an alternative as seen in this post on Bulletproof Coffee but she didn’t like it.  We then tried adding an egg based on this post from Marks Daily Apple.  Again, she did not like the taste even with sugar added.

So I came up with a paleo, sugar-free version of a coffee creamer for her to use as I was not happy with all the sugar that she was consuming.  Dates provide a small amount of sweetness and coconut milk makes it creamy and provides some healthy fats.  The other wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is simple enough for C to make by herself whenever she needs to….
