Ask the Allergy Coach Q15: Should we make our home completely nut free for our nut allergic daughter?

Q: Our daughter was recently diagnosed with a nut allergy. My wife and I are used to eating a lot of nuts in our diet. We of course want to keep our daughter safe but wanted to find out could we keep nuts in our home or should get rid of them all? What should we do?

Ask the Allergy Coach Q14: Still getting stomach aches even after doing an elimination diet. Is this normal?

Ask the Allergy Coach Q14: Still getting stomach aches even after doing an elimination diet. Is this normal?

Q: When you do an elimination diet is there a “delay” in your stomach getting better? It took me over a month off the foods for my joint pain to subside, but I am still getting stomach aches nearly every day, usually right after I eat. But it doesn’t seem to matter much what I eat that I can tell, it happens after every meal of a reasonable size. I’ve been totally free of intolerant foods since early September…does it just take a while for the stomach to heal or am I missing something?

Ask the Allergy Coach Q13: Is it wrong to miss eating the allergens my child is allergic to?

Q: My son is allergic to all nuts, sesame and egg. We don’t eat “may contains” and we don’t have his allergens in the house. Is it wrong that I really miss eating eggs and nuts but I feel guilty whenever I do? Even if he is not around?

Broccoli and Sweet Potato No Dough Pizza Base Recipe (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free, Legume Free, Paleo, Keto)

Broccoli and Sweet Potato No Dough Pizza Base Recipe (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free, Legume Free, Paleo, Keto)

I have long been fascinated by pizza, from trying to make it to watching the Pizza Show by Vice. Growing up my Mum would buy pizza bases and let my brother and I choose our toppings. One of the dinner time rules was we had to eat with a knife and fork, this included our pizza apart from the very last two slices. Unfortunately for me, I could never finish a whole pizza. Watching my brother, I was very jealous as he ate with his hands. 

ingredients for No dough gluten free broccoli and sweet potato pizza base paleo keto recipe

Over the last few years I have developed more intolerances and allergies which has somewhat diminished my ability to eat pizza. Put together gluten free, dairy free, corn starch free, nut free, paleo and keto there doesn’t seem to be much left on the list of ingredients you can use. This is when this recipe came into being, partly because I was hungry, bored, and a bit fed up. I wanted comfort food but didn’t want a stomach ache.

 

With no cauliflower in the shops I used whatever I could find. This is recipe is incredibly simple, tastes great hot and cold, really versatile and you don’t need tomato or cheese for it to taste great.

Broccoli and Sweet Potato No Dough Pizza Base (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free, Legume Free, Paleo, Keto)

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20-30 minutes

Makes: 2 bases

Ingredients

  • 220g florettes of broccoli, wizzed in blender
  • 400g  sweet potato, peeled and grated
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • Pinch of sea salt

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180C (fan oven). Line 2 baking trays with grease proof paper and rub a little oil over it.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl mix the sweet potato and broccoli, cover and put in the microwave for 7 minutes on high.
  3. Uncover and mix to cool the vegetables slightly. Mix in the eggs, oil and salt. Divide the mix in half. Spoon each half onto a baking tray. Use the back of a spoon to smooth the mix into a pizza base shape. 
  4. Put the trays into the oven and bake on the first side for 20 minutes until the edges have gone golden brown. Once done, turn the bases over and cook on the second side for a further 7-10 minutes.

Use these as bases for your favourite pizza toppings or, an antipasti by drizzling with extra virgin olive oil and fresh basil leaves.

Ask the Allergy Coach Q12: Can an adult suddenly develop a peanut allergy?

Ask the Allergy Coach Q12: Can an adult suddenly develop a peanut allergy?

Q: Can an adult suddenly develop a peanut allergy? Last night it occurred to me it was the second day in a row that while eating peanut butter filled pretzels I developed a horrible tight cough immediately. Although we have epi-pens in the house for my son’s allergies, I’m too scared to try peanut butter again. Is this possible?
