One of our readers was kind enough to not only compliment the photo that accompanied our recent Books for Thought post, but also asked:

“Could you also post some books/cookbooks that would be helpful to someone with multiple food allergies – cheese, canned vegetables, prepared meats, etc.? A friend of mine contends with this issue…”

Well what a nice friend you are, and I’m happy to help where I can. I don’t recall seeing any multiple food allergy books when I was at Duthie Books on my original visit, but from a quick internet search there are definitely some out there.

This is what I found that may apply to your friends situation, and may be of interest to others:

The Gluten-Free Vegan: 150 Delicious Gluten-Free, Animal-Free Recipes by Susan O’Brien (Marlowe & Company, December 2007) She has also written Gluten-Free Sugar-Free Cooking.

Cooking Without: Recipes Free from Added Gluten, Sugar, Dairy Products, Yeast, Salt, and Saturated Fat by Barbara Cousins (HarperCollins Canada / Thorsons (August 2000). Wow, this sounds nearly perfect!

Table for Two: Meat and Dairy-Free Recipes for Two by Joanne Stepaniak (Book Publishing Company January 1996)

Green for Life by Victoria Boutenko (Raw Family Publishing September 2005). You may like to check out their website (not full of content quite yet).

Raw Foods for Busy People 1 (2004) and 2 (2007) by Jordan Maerin (Lulu Press). Seems to be self-explanatory, but maybe the raw regime would suit your friends situation?

Good luck, and keep us posted…J
