Suggestions for food intolerances!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Basically, I can't handle eggs or dairy without having a painful reaction. Anyone in my situation? Eating in restaurant is a kind of a pain because almost everything has some form of dairy cheese or milk in it. Thanks for any advice you guys have. ~ love MrMrsSwl

Eat more Asian style. These cultures have a high incidence of lactose intolerance and their cuisine reflects that. You'll still have to watch out for eggs in things like noodles and soups. But there are other forms of noodles wihout the egg.

Great advice. I often eat vietnamese food and AFAIK it doesn't involve eggs or dairy. They use rice paper for wrappers, rice noodles, coconut milk, tofu... and on top of that, it's absolutely delicious.

I love Asian food! Chinese food makes my stomach hurt terribly, though.

You probably need to identify your food sensitivities much more thoroughly then. Whether it includes soy, wheat and so on. Seems there's more than just dairy and cheese.

I agree.  You can't lump all Chinese food into one category either.  You really need to identify what it is that's causing such discomfort.

I agree - you can't assume all food sensitivities are native to any particular cuisine.  You and you're husband/bf might consider professional foods allergy testing.

I second Mike there. Get it tested and identified. Pet peeve of mine, there is no such thing as "chinese cuisine". I suppose this refers to americanized chinese, but if you look at the whole picture, things like say, hunanese has very little in common with things like xinjiang.

Maybe she means chinese take out.
