Life with allergies is a continual roller coaster. We always have to plan, always have to check. Here are a few items that we couldn't life without!
Basic English Muffins - no butter, no milk, no whey or anything dairy. You must get the basics though - their 'normal' brand has butter as do most English muffins. I pray Sainsbury's never change the recipe.
FreeFrom pasta and spaghetti. The Sainsbury's range of gluten free pasta is simply the best out there. Of course Molly can't have the fresh range as it's got egg in it. I'm gluten free and this works for us all.
From Any Supermarket
Warburton's Crumpets - no butter again, phew. A great staple to have.
We love pate. It drives me faintly potty that so many of them have milk and egg. I've given up trying to buy any from Sainsbury's but luckily Waitrose have a range that are milk and egg free.
Waitrose Sweet and Tangy Pork and Onion Pate - Great on toast or oat cakes. Too sweet for a sandwich in my opinion.
Waitrose Essential Brussels Pate. You must get the Essential Range of this pate. Smooth and full of flavour. Makes a great sandwich with cucumber or a bit of Rocket if you like something with a bit of bite.
Waitrose Alphonso Mango Sorbet and Waitrose Lemon Sorbet - so many sorbets have milk products in them that it is infuriating. These sorbet are perfect in every way as well as being milk and egg free.
Obviously check the packs every time you buy them - you never know when a product will change formulation and you need to make sure everything is safe to eat before buying it.
