A list of safe foods.

I will keep this list current and updated so that you can reference it when making suggestions on how to improve the food. :) Always remember to read the labels please, the sugar can be hidden. You have to look in the ingredient list and on the DV square. We have recently been able to add way more foods than I can list. So I have decided to then list what foods we actually eat on a regular basis. We can have treats now and then. As long as we go back to a strict diet for 3 days or a week after.
Baking:
bread home made by me
Arnold's Italian Bread. Will say "No High Fructose Corn Syrup on it".

oats
dextrose (100%) I have been buying bulk from Stringtown grocery.
stevia (pure extract powder) (might be cutting out)
hershey's 100% cocoa (gives us headaches and is a fructan, use sparingly)
corn starch
Spices are ok. Use in moderation. Garlic and onions are now ok as long as they are cooked.
baking soda
baking powder.
olive oil
coconut oil
Glucose based vanilla extract.
Crisco Shortening (might be switching to something else)
Distilled White Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar (small amounts)

Meat:
meat
organic brown eggs (free range from kalona, or from local farms) the others make their stomach upset. Although we can eat store bought eggs in stuff.
Hebrew national kosher hot dogs
johnsonville summer sausage, read label.
Oscar Meyer oven roasted Turkey Breast.

Dairy:
milk unflavored (prefer whole)
cheese - no spreads- 100% cheese,
cream cheese
butter
sour cream
Pasta and Rice:
 (be careful, some add bran. any kind of bran or germ is not tolerated. so no whole grains or noodles made from veggies etc.)
rice pasta and rice crackers.
Corn and Quinoa noodles.
enriched white rice
We can add back in regular noodles. Plain noodles, no added ingredients or whole grains, or carrots or anything.

Veggies:
Russet potatoes - only kind of potatoes allowed
mushrooms are allowed but they dont like them
spinach
broccoli (they really like this covered in cheese)
Canned green beans
HFCS free ketchup
HFCS free tomato sauce (like on spaghetti and stuff)
Dill pickles
I have been able to give them lost more veggies as long as they aren't the bulk of the meal. Squash, eggplant and zucchini are still not ok.

Drinks:
teas with no sugar
home made lime ade= 2 large lemons and 2 large limes, juiced. 1 gallon of water. 1 cup dextrose, 20 scoops stevia (remember to level the scoop, a little goes a long way!).
Whole cow's milk
homemade milkshakes (Strawberries, yogurt, and stevia )
We have been able to add in Blue gatorade. Made ourselves out of the powder. As long as we dont overdo it.

Snack food:
potato chips. (Most flavors are ok.)
Puffcorn
cheetos
Doritos (retro style)
Chicken-in-a-biscuit crackers
Goldfish crackers
cheez-its
String cheese
cashews and sunflower seeds (but Laura doesnt like them)
Fun Dip
Smarties
I usually dont give them snacks very often. I prefer they eat their meals. The meals are way more safe than snacks. I am so glad we don't have to be wheat free anymore.

  1. We have passed our elimination diet with flying colors. We can now eat almost anything we want. We still need to avoid Apples, Pears, and grapes, and anything made out of it. Our safe list still stands as the safest food for us. But we don't have to worry so much about what we eat when we go to visit or go out to a restaurant.
