Food Allergy Winter Recipes


Posted 12.10.14 | Rob McCandlish, RDN


With the change in weather, maybe you’re looking for some good recipes for cool weather, like I do. Here are some great recipes that are food allergy-friendly and ideal for the colder months. As always, make sure these recipes are alright based on your allergens.

After being outside

Is there anything better than coming back into a warm house after building a snowman, skiing, sledding, ice-skating or just being out in cold weather? Yes, if coming back into the house also involves a warm drink! Here are some ideas that don’t involve allergens:
                -Heat up some apple cider, serve with a cinnamon stick
                -Brew up some peppermint, decaf chai, or herbal citrus tea
                -Make hot cocoa from scratch using a dairy substitute, here’s a recipe that looks good
                -Make an allergen-free hot chocolate using Neocate Junior, Chocolate and serve in a thermos
                -Add a drop of peppermint oil or artificial peppermint flavor for a change

Wintery breakfasts                                                      

It can be hard to get out of bed when it’s cold outside. A nice, hot breakfast makes at least a little easier (and slippers don’t hurt!). Here are a few ideas that we’d love to wake up to:
                -Add cut fruit and cinnamon to hot oatmeal
                -Toast and enjoy a Pumpkin Banana Flourless Muffin
                -Fruity Apple Cereal or Applesauce Oatmeal (In our Neocate Nutra Recipe Guide)
                -Fruity Tutti Pancakes (In our Neocate Recipe Booklet)
                -Cinnamon Breakfast Bread or French Toast (In our Food Allergy Cookbook)

Main Meals

Nothing hits the spot when the days are short like a hearty soup. Here are a few we’d be happy to pull a chair up to at the dinner table:
                -Chicken Noodle Soup (from Eating with Food Allergies)
                -Taco Soup (from Real Food Allergy Free)
                -Cream of Broccoli (In our Food Allergy Cookbook)
                -Butternut Squash Soup (In our Neocate Recipe Booklet)

Seasonal Desserts

And even though waistlines suffer at this time of year, who can pass up dessert? Here are a few ways to wrap up a meal:
                -Serve a Milk-free Peppermint Shake
                -Try a great recipe for Gingerbread Cookies (replace egg with appleasauce, if needed)
                -Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Smoothie (In our Neocate Recipe Booklet)

What are your favorite allergen-free recipes at this time of year?
