  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this! I found out about my soy allergy after years of misery and not knowing what was causing my illness and severe eczema nearly my whole life. It is depressing at times when trying to live with the allergy and I am SO grateful to have found your blog. It’s not only informative and extremely helpful, but so encouraging! You’re awesome!

    • Thanks for the encouragement, Anna! I haven’t written in a while, mainly because I have been feeling better and I’ve slowed down on the research…but I wanted to keep the site up for others to benefit from. Be encouraged, Anna. I hope you feel better soon!

  2. I just happened upon your blog, and I found it to be very helpful. But I noticed a few of your recipes used potato starch in lieu of flour. My diet restriction include white flour, white potatoes, and sugar (along with their substitutes)… I use agave syrup as my sugar, but what can I substitute potato starch with? I usually use almond flour when baking.

  3. this is one of the most informative (personal) blogs I have come across, I have been living with (that I have know about anyway) celiac disease for 2 years now. I am also anaphylactic to eggs and dairy and have a soy allergy. I have discovered within the past year that I can not use these products on my skin either. I have had a hard time finding cosmetics that are free of these ingredients with no cross contamination. I have spent hours upon hours researching online. Thanks for making your blog easy to read =)

    Skin irritations can be caused by pathogenic organisms and also some chemicals can cause skin irritation too. ;::,:

  5. Hi! Thanks so much for listing my blog. I’m so happy you like it! I’m just learning about your blog, so I’m happy to have come across it. I’ll add you to my blog hop for those writing about eczema, allergies, or asthma.

    Thanks again!

    • You are more than welcome! My son was highly allergic when he was 1 year old and had terrible eczema. I wish I knew about your blog then! I have been having skin irritations only the last year due to allergies–so I’ve been finding your posts very helpful 🙂

        i have a question i am doing a paper fo my foods class and would like to know all the foods you eat. i have to make a 7 day menu. this is what i have to do it on: takesha age 7, is severely allergic to dairy products and soy milktoo.she doesnt have grown up tastets in foods yet. i was just wondering if you could help me with foods that i can make this menu with. it would be nice if you could help me thanks. 🙂

      • Hi Daja!

        Feel free to check out my blogs for more specific food ideas.

        I’d suggest replacing the main dairy and soy ingredients right away.

        Instead of cow’s milk, use almond milk, rice milk, coconut milk, or hemp milk.

        Instead of using butter for cooking or baking, use oil: olive oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, canola oil, palm oil, etc. you can also buy soy and dairy free butter (Earth Balance, for example), which is made from several of the above listed oils.

        Read all the labels on the processed foods to make sure that there is no soybean or soybean derivative ingredient. There are lots of names for soy…tocopherol is a biggie. Milk ingredients may show as “whey”.

        Replace mayonnaise (made with soy) with canola based mayo. Use olive oil and vinegar dressing — check the labels on those too. Don’t assume it doesn’t contain soy.

        Most breads contain dairy and soy. However, there are some brands advertised as gluten free that are also soy and dairy free. Try using lettuce to wrap the sandwich instead.

        Pasta is usually safe. Meats are mostly ok (rinse the meat though, in case it has been washed with a soy wash). Raw veggies (not soybeans) are ok. Fruits are ok. You can build a high protein and complex carbohydrate diet that is soy and dairy free.

        I hope this gives you some ideas!
