A large part of learning to live with food allergies, is learning how to cook differently than before your diagnosis. Many people find that they need to cook more often, due to the inherent risk in buying food at restaurants, bakeries, ice cream shops, etc. Even if you don’t consider yourself a cook, once you start searching for new recipes, you may find several basic dishes that are easy to make and safe to eat, easing your mind and satisfying your hunger!
