Recipe Index

We learned as we went along so some of the recipes have been better modified to suit each category better.  Also we originally included legumes in our Stage 1 but later took them back out so I remade stage 1 to be legume free as well.  Only recipes that were deemed worthy of cooking again once the diet was over are included.

All these recipes are Casein Free, Chocolate Free, Citrus Free, Corn Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Gluten Free, Legumes, Low Salycilate, Peanut Free, Soy Free, Sugar Free (maple syrup and coconut sugar are used), and Yeast Free.  Not all the recipes from our stage 1 are posted.

    1. Ok good question. Plantains are in the same family as bananas and bananas are low salicylate (http://www.thefoodbehaviorproject.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Salicylates.xlsx). High Amines can also cause problems with people sensitive to salicylates. Bananas and plantains are high amines if overly ripe http://www.foodsmatter.com/allergy_intolerance/salicylate/articles/moss-salicylates-01-15.html (this article also puts plantains in the low salicylate category) though I read (can’t find the link now) that plantains are lower in amines than bananas. Hope that helps!

  1. Thank you so much for this resource! Its challenging to find a sample elimination diet plan online. Question about maple syrup….I have seen honey on a “least-allergenic foods” list. Curious why you chose maple syrup over honey? Thank you!

    1. Since we were doing the diet mostly for behavioral reasons, I ended up combining the Feingold diet along with a low allergy diet. Feingold’s research suggests food addiditves as well as high Salicylate foods can cause hyperactivity in certain people/children. Honey is very high in Salicylates but Maple Sugar is low. If you are doing the allergy more for food allergy reasons feel free to use honey instead of maple syrup in the recipes!
