Allergy Free Pantry

No Nuts, Eggs, Dairy, Soy, Gluten, Grains Or Refined Sugars!

The Pantry

WATER

I can’t stress enough how important it is to keep water stocked up! We drink it so much at my house we ended up buying a pitcher with a filter to save from buying so many bottles! This is actually one of the very few drinks my family enjoys– {Blake loves it too! Chugs away!}

Coffee

If you can afford to go organic, do! We go back and forth as needed. I only drink 1-2 cups a day so it’s not something that takes up a lot of my fluid consumption. I have also switched to decaf and have seen a huge difference in my energy levels throughout the day – as in I have MORE!  Maybe coffee has a reverse effect on me?

Coconut milk

 A super healthy dairy replacer!! Coconut milk can be found in the grocery store or health food store. I usually buy the canned version with as little ingredients as I can find.

Canned Goods- BPA free cans

  • Chicken stock-  Either homemade or organic broth..Pacific brand works for us!
  • Tomato paste, sauce, and stewed.  All natural and/organic.
  • Organic Pumpkin Puree- This is a guilty pleasure of mine and I like to stock up when fall rolls around so I can enjoy pumpkin all year round.
  • Organic Pineapple- Because I can never tell when a pineapple is ripe. Usually it goes bad before I get to it, so I will totally by canned from my local health food store to make my delicious pineapple upside down cakes!

Pumpkin and sunflower seeds

These are a great protein to keep around for all your baking needs! I use them in various recipes:  homemade granola, cookies, cakes, muffins, breads ect… Sunflower seeds are a great almond flour replacer for those trying to do paleo with food allergies. Just make sure you are getting your seeds from a reliable source that is a nut free facility.

Coconut Flour

My treenut, peanut allergy son does great with all coconut products! Which is a blessing because they are incredibly healthy for you! This is great for baking, but remember can NOT be used a flour replacer with a 1:1 ratio. Coconut flour is very heavy in protein and soaks up tons of liquid.

Sunbutter

We have found the best peanut butter replacer out there!! Sunbutters Organic spread is a quick protein filled snack that I have been eating like candy lately! We only get the organic, though, because the natural has added ingredients that we don’t consider clean eating. Or you can make your own! It is simple and quick.

Extra virgin olive oil

100% pure maple syrup

Honey! {Raw} – buying local saves tons of money!

Sea Salt

Apple Cider Vinegar

Organic Mustard- no sweeteners added

Stevia

Coconut oil- I get mine here

Chia seeds

Flax seeds

Unsweetened Organic Applesauce- used as a condiment and a snack!

Organic cocoa powder -or- carob powder- Great for baking or making paleo hot cocoa! Used in moderation of course 🙂

All sorts of spices

This is what a HealthyAllergyNuts fridge looks like!

FRUITS, VEGGIES, & MEATS

You have several options here and this is what the majority of my fridge holds. Yes, we end up shopping often for these items… But it’s worth it!  Try your best to get organic as much as you can afford to. We can’t always do that but I sure try to get my apples, potatoes, and ALWAYS my greens organic. Here is a little list of fruits and veggies with high pesticide levels:

Fruits

  • Peaches
  • Apples
  • Strawberries
  • Nectarines
  • Pears
  • Cherries
  • Raspberries
  • Imported Grapes

Veggies

  • Spinach
  • Bell Peppers and other hot peppers
  • Celery
  • Potatoes

The list and options can go on and on when it comes to what meats we are willing to eat. We look for the highest quality and try to purchase locally whenever possible. If not, then a good source to buy meat online is this site — and don’t forget to shop their sales!!

Meat

  • Grass fed and finished beef
  • Wild-Caught fish
  • Free range chicken- hormone and antibiotic free
  • Bacon- no nitrates or nitrites
  • Quality ground turkey and pork

Easy way to save some $$$ while buying organic is buying what’s on special or hitting up your local farmers market while its in season. Also, we buy our meat in {what we consider to be} bulk! We buy it once a pay check and have even added it into our budget! If you buy from a local farmer you may be able to set up a good deal with them. We even buy our bacon several packages at a time and freeze! Look for no nitrites/nitrates added for a better option. — Bacon was pretty much my morning protein choice since eggs weren’t an option during breastfeeding, and is still a morning protein for Blake! He likes beef bacon or turkey bacon.

Well, there ya have it! Sorry it took so long to get up but it has taken a little longer to get settled into the new place than I thought. Making the switch to clean eating can be a little overwhelming and adding allergies to the mix adds to the frustration, but I hope that this list helps out anyone that may be struggling to do either. Here’s to allergy free, healthy eating 😉

  2. I loved this! It’s awesome how you sectioned everything into categories and explain the versatile things each item can be substitute for. (: I’m very proud of your ‘ healthy habits’ and I know Lil Man loves them too!! (: #wickedcoolblog

    • Thanks for the love:) I hope this helps many who are considering a healthier lifestyle! I try to make it a priority to show people just how simple it can be, since most cringe the thought of clean eating. 🙂
