What’s in my allergy free pantry? This is a common question that people ask and for many good reasons. One of the challenges that people have when they first start cooking with allergies or food sensitivities is that they don’t know what food to buy as well as what food to keep on hand at all times.
So… Let’s get started answering that question.
First, let me say that there is no one right way to stock an allergy free pantry and exactly what is in your allergy free pantry will vary from person to person according to your specific dietary needs. So these recommendations are based on a combination of my specific needs for an allergy free pantry and based on the most common allergies people have. It is possible, therefore, that you may have an additional allergy to something that is included in the food listed. If so, just eliminate that food.
Staples I always have:
1. Coconut Milk (You could also have almond milk. I have a moderate allergy to almonds though so I usually don’t use this.)
3. Brown rice or wild rice
4. Variety of spices- basic salt and pepper, lemon pepper blend, cinnamon, parsley, and others that you like to use regularly.
5. Olive oil
6. Coconut Oil
7. Sunflower oil
8. Selection of herbal teas
9. Balsamic Vinegar
11. Brown Sugar
13. Chia Seeds
14. Hemp Seeds
Things I usually have on hand in my fridge or freezer:
2. Berries- strawberries, blackberries and raspberries but not blueberries as I am allergic. (weird I know but they make it so I can’t sleep at night.)
3. Greens- kale, spinach, bulk choy etc.
4. A Variety of Squashes
5. Chicken, and Salmon
6. Other green vegetables
Things I buy regularly but do not always have on hand:
5. Canned tuna
