Introduction to Food Intolerances and training as a Food Intolerant Athlete

This article formed the basis for an interview for Women’s Health and Fitness in 2012… “You can’ t eat FRUIT?!” Add an uncomfortable pause and a look of incredulousness, wherein I rapidly feel as if I am in the middle of an AA meeting; “Hi. My Name’s Naomi, and I’m… a Food Intolerant Athlete.” Once this is confessed…

How we Make “Homemade” Medicine (Failsafers/Allergic/Intolerant etc)

So being the mum of two highly food intolerant girls has not only turned me into a magician cook (or ‘cooker’ as my daughter would say) in that I can cook ten different meals with the same five raw ingredients, but it has also turned me into an Apothecary Extraordinaire. Just want to re-iterate my…

A Simple Failsafe Dinner: Friendly Food for Super Responders

Sometimes having food intolerant children makes me look like an AWESOME mum.

Scrummy Buckwheat Potato Muffins: For Vegans and the Food Sensitive

Although I too respond to high levels…

An Awesome “Chocolate-Free Easter Egg & Treasure-Hunt” For Food Intolerant & Allergic Kids

Because we are wheat/gluten free, dairy free, soy free, low in salicylates, amines and glutamates in addition to not eating any processed foodstuffs that contain preservatives or artificial/natural colours and flavours (woah, take a breath!), eating chocolate at Easter is a no-go area. Last year was the first year my kids were old enough to…

Neocate Ice Cream for the Super Sensitive

There is so much I will be posting about Food Intolerance in the near future. My own children were diagnosed as having Multiple Food Chemical Intolerances two years ago, it has radically transformed my life and is a topic that fascinates me.  I thought I’d start off this theme with an additional recipe section where I will post up our…
