Maybe a fun challenge for some of you: My go-to for years has been a big pot of chili that I can divide up and put in the freezer. Healthy protein and vegetables, great for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a pinch. Quick and easy to make and freezer friendly - with my work lifestyle, that is exactly what I need (unlike the chicken breasts I stopped buying - despite best intentions, end up throwing them away). Chili making me sick? Yes. Willing to believe it? No. Stupid? I like to think stubborn.
Well, after skin followed by blood allergy tests, no more:
- Tomatoes. Yup, chili, salsa, ketchup.
- Nuts. If allergic to some, they said avoid all.
- Peanuts. Unbelievable.
- Sesame Seeds. What?
- A couple of obscure things.
- Also - you don’t want to be in the same room if I’ve had dairy.
So - now looking for meals (even breakfast if you have ideas) that are quick to prepare in bulk, freezer-friendly, with protein and vegetables. I do best on a lower carbohydrate, higher-fat diet but don’t mind something hypoallergetic like rice. Fortunately all meat and eggs are fine for protein, just no dairy or nuts.
This is my problem, I know. I’m looking. Admittedly at the moment I’m bummed (I mean, peanuts? Why couldn’t it be grapefruit?) so I’d really appreciate the inspiration.
