Other Blogs

When I have found other Blogs useful, I have tried to give them a 'shout out' by including them in posts. Sometimes, they don't handily fit in to one particular post, so here are some other Blogs that you may find useful - after all, it would be a bit rude of me to keep them all to myself!  

I've tried to indicate which allergies they feature, but mostly they're either dairy free (for 'Baby') or gluten free (for me), but one or two others may have escaped in there!  ;)

Alimentary Bites - A registered dietitian who blogs primarily for her patients, but is happy to share her genius! Her recipes are all MEWS free - Milk Free, Egg Free, Wheat Free and Soya Free.

Allergy Adventures - Hailey's blog is quite unlike any other!! Unfortunately she is not currently updating her blog, as she is taking a break, but her past posts contain all kinds of useful information, as well as some fun recipes for kids. She's written a range of books about allergies and created a series of lesson plans for schools, as well. Being coeliac she's Gluten Free and her niece is Egg Free, but all her recipes are Dairy Free, Soya Free, Wheat Free, Peanut Free, Sesame Free and Nut Free as well!

Dairy Free Switzerland - A blog by an American lady who lives in Switzerland. I follow edthis blog for two reasons - she's an adventurous baker and because I was hoping to find out about my options, next time we travel to Switzerland. One of her sons used to be Dairy Free and Egg Free. She is no longer updating her blog, as her son outgrew his allergies, but it is still a useful resource.

Dairy Free Traveller - This blog is written by an American guy who loves travelling and doesn't let being dairy free hold him back. I love reading about his travels, so I can live vicariously and I'm hoping to gather ideas for future travel! As far as I know he's 'just' Dairy Free.

Deliciously Ella - It's not an allergy blog, but an extremely popular blog among those seeking to eat more healthily. Author of a book that has recently topped the Amazon bestseller list, she shares recipes on her blog that are Dairy Free, Gluten Free and Sugar Free but not taste free!! I believe they're also Vegan.

Fabulously Free From - Recently diagnosed with Crohns, Helen is Gluten Free. Some of her recipes are also Dairy Free, as well as Sugar Free. She also reviews Free From food products.

Feeding My Intolerant Child - A parent, like me, who is trying to deal with the day-to-day stuff, whilst raising a child with food allergies. Her son, Zac, is Dairy Free, Gluten Free and Wheat Free.

Allergy Insight - Health Journalist Alex Gazzola is the author of this blog. He is a thoughtful and measured writer. I've really appreciated his posts about various aspects of allergy/intolerance.

Gluten Free B - Carly is a coeliac, so is Gluten Free but has recently had to make a skirmish into dairy free territory, due to breastfeeding a Dairy Free baby! I'm looking forward to reading her recipes! Her baby has since grown up a little but is also egg free.

Gluten Free by the Sea - It's all in the name! Kevin is a coeliac, who is therefore Gluten Free! He reviews products and restaurants and he lives in Plymouth, but he loves visiting London!

Gluten Free Grace - A published author, Grace is intolerant to various foods and writes recipes that are Dairy Free, Gluten Free and Wheat Free. She's also reviewed a few restaurants here and there as well!

Gluten Free Mrs G - Writes great reviews. She's very scrupulous and well-travelled! So if, like me, you're gluten free and planning to travel, check out her blog! She's coeliac, so she is Gluten Free, but she's also allergic to some nuts.

Hemsley & Hemsley - Achingly uber elegant, the sisters behind this site have been writing for Vogue for some while. It's not an allergy site, but their recipes are grain free - therefore Gluten Free, and often (but not always) Dairy Free. Where recipes are not dairy free, they often make good suggestions for substitutions too!

i bake without - Another parent, but a bit more of a foodie than me! She contributes recipes for Dairy Free Dream. Her recipes are all Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soya Free, Tree Nut Free, Peanut Free, Potato Free. Bev also has a Face Book support group of the same name!

Love Lactose Free Life - Lactose Free all her life, the lovely Emma is now also Gluten Free and blogs honestly about her struggles to get a diagnosis, as well as her recipes.

Lucy's Friendly Foods - Lucy is a Cordon Bleu trained chef. She's a vegetarian, whose recipes are also almost all Dairy Free, Egg Free, Nut Free and Sesame Free

My Itchy Boy - So called, because the author's son suffers terribly with eczema. He is Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soya Free and Peanut Free among other things!

N1C79 Eats! - Nicola is a lovely bubbly lady who loves eating and cooking Wheat Free/Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Egg Free. I love reading about her experiences and picking up ideas/tips about where to eat - both here in the UK, as well as in the USA.

Oh She Glows! - Another amazingly creative lady, Angela is a Vegan, which makes all her recipes Dairy Free and Egg Free (as well as meat free, of course). Her recipes are also often Gluten Free and Soya Free too. Her recipe books are highly recommended!

Pig in the Kitchen - Used to blog original recipes beloved by many. Her site is still up, so check them out! Her recipes are Dairy Free, Egg Free and Gluten Free.

Sugarpuffish - Beauty blogger who, as far as I'm concerned, is the person to go to about natural beauty products. She also has food allergies, so these get a mention too, along with some great food products. Dairy Free, Egg Free and Vegan, among other things!

The Intolerant Gourmet - A lovely lady, who is food intolerant herself and is a bit of a foodie. Her blog and recipe book are drool-worthiness itself - never mind making the stuff! Dairy Free, Gluten Free and Egg Free.

The Free From Fairy - Another lovely lady! Vicki's blog was set-up to help her share her free from recipes. Her focus is recipes that are Gluten Free and Dairy Free.

Yes No Bananas - Written by Alexa - a journalist and ferocious allergy campaigner (think Alpro SOS). Alexa's son is Egg Free, Nut Free (not all, nuts, but there's quite a list) Sesame Free and Lentil Free (if that sounds like a list, he was also allergic to chickpeas and peas and bananas) but also blogs about food allergy matters in general.

Please note: This list is not exhaustive and is likely to be added to, over time! :)
