  • Egg Allergies

    Well, I am just getting started with primal. I love eggs, but my daughter is allergic to them. Very allergic. So, while I don't mind making myself some for breakfast, I need some ideas for a nice primal breakfast for her.

    Thanks for any ideas!

    Have you tried different types of eggs? Like other animals besides chickens...

    Other breakfasts could include-as far as protein sources go-meats, raw or organic dairy (if she can tolerate it), maybe a breakfast smoothie with a very high quality protein...

      I also have an egg allergy. Most of the time I have a smoothie for breakfast.

        would uncured bacon be a nice meat? what sources of high quality protein should i be looking at? i have thought about protein shakes for her, but most include soy protein, and egg whites...so obviously a no go. most protein bars have soy in them as well.

          My son can't have eggs so he just gets whatever we eat just without eggs so most mornings that's either bacon or sausage and some veggies cooked in coconut oil or butter, and sometimes we have a coconut milk and strawberry smoothies he LOVES those. And sometimes we give him fruit or cheese to go with his breakfast. But most the time just meat and veggies.

            I've noticed this problem with eggs too, and it's the yolk that gets me; egg whits alone and I havent any problems
            Apparently duck eggs can sometimes be tolerated so i might give them a try.

              Amber, none of the sources I recommend include soy. I'd never advocate that for an adult, let alone a child. In my eyes, soy is a danger. We could probably consume motor oil if we processed it as much as soy too!

              Jay Robb's protein is a great choice IMO.

                What heppens when you eat the yolks? I ask b/c I get major digestive issues and heck, if youre trying duck eggs and it works out... I wanna know!!! I would KILL for some runny yolks in my life. Sigh.

                  I'm suspicious that I might have an egg allergy. If I eat too many at once I tend to get very nauseous. Could that indicate an egg allergy?

                    People tend to scarf eggs down within a couple of minutes, hence why it's one of the biggest allergies around. I would say drop it for 2 weeks, re-introduce it at a low volume and chew slowly.

                    Drink your food and chew your water.

                      I dont think that would have anything to do with any sort of REAL allergic response. Read: immune-mediated. Are you talking about digestive upset or actual allergies here?

                          I've never heard that allergies are related to how fast you wolf your food down.

                            The most helpful thing is to reframe breakfast as simply: a meal. It's just another meal. One that doesn't require special 'time of day' foods, just......foods.

                            Whatever you all eat for lunch and dinner would be excellent!

                            My daughter outgrew her egg allergy at around 5......ugh - that was a hard one. Really hard for awhile. I learned to think of breakfast as another opportunity for beef, fish, chicken, bison etc......

                            We did - and still do - Natural Factors Whey Factors.
                            Stirfy
                            Meat(all kinds), greens(all kinds), sweet potato sometimes (or winter squash)

                            I found that our days went the best when I made larger dinners, then had leftovers for breakfast the next am....with some fresh salad or fresh veggies/fruit in addition to the leftovers.

                            The benefit? I have two of the most flexible eaters around: they'll eat kale and collards without batting an eye

                            Since she's missing out on the choline and phospholipids of the eggs, be sure she's getting those nutrients elsewhere. (ETA: 'elsewhere' pretty much means bone marrow....)

                            It's also very possible that D deficiency plays a role in the etiology of allergies......be sure she's got optimal serum levels of D. There is an easy hometest available through ZRT labs. They sell it directly to consumer, or the test can be ordered from the vitamindcouncil.org or as part of a 5 year study at grassrootshealth.net

                            All the best,
                            Katherine

                              but that isnt an allergy, that is a sensitivity.
