Since his last appt Luckas got sick twice yet again. So I called the Quarter Deck to see what I should do. The on call Doctor called me and said she would have the nurse call me in the AM to set him up an appt the next day so he can be seen and treated. We go in yesterday and since his 15 month check up he has lost already 1 lb and a couple ounces. His eczema has flared up really bad towards the end of May. So she gets him a stronger cream and gets him aquaphor for his eczema around his eyes. Benadryl for the itching and then she tells me that his blood work has come back already and that he is 90+% allergic to cat dander, 40%-50% allergic to eggs and dog dander. She told me recommends me not getting a cat anytime soon and that we should take cut eggs out of his diet for 9-12 months to see if he out grows it. As for the dog dander, ACE is staying since his breed is hypoallergenic. Gabby is already gone (if you knew who that little stinker is) Luckas and Ace are like best of buds and that's Luckas' "goggie".
So after all that information, you would kind of think it would be easy to find books, information online or anything online about "no egg" baking or cooking. Its harder then I thought. I can find some recipes or I'll find something and start reading and it has eggs in it. Why would people waste my time with putting "no egg" and have egg in it. I have gotten frustrated a few times so far with this. But I have a good friend Erika down in San Diego who is a very happy vegetarian and knows her stuff about "no egg, no milk, no meat..." stuff. But its not that easy to be honest so I have been looking all over for maybe some good priced books and this is what I have found so far.
1. Joy of Vegan Baking
Looks like it could have some good baking things so Luckas can still have cookies and cake with us and not feel left out. I hope that it has some bread recipes in there too so I can make some bread for him so he can have some toast:)Since its his FAVORITE thing to eat lately. What caught my eye when reading what the book was about "The Joy of Vegan Baking lets you have your cake and eat it, too!" It should be helpful since I'm not an expert baker so I will be able to understand it!
Now this one looks like it could be alittle fun with pies:) I would love to tackle a pie or two to see if Luckas will eat it. But it just depends on the sugar, since we don't want him taking in a lot of sugar. Got to keep him healthy:) It says all these recipe are all homemade and it does have bread recipes in it. This book could be a winner to what I'm looking for since it helps understand replacers for butter, eggs, nuts and so on.
3.Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar
This is a book that Erika referred to me. I really didn't get to read much about the book and what it have to offer since these authors have already have another book out. I might have to look more into it. But its worth a shot:)
4.Bakin' Without Eggs
This book is in my "cart". I got to read alittle of the intro thank you to amazon.com. The author that wrote the book was writting this book with one thing in mind. You can find a lot of books that pertain to one theme. But she wrote this book for families that can't use eggs. She also says that there are books out there for "no eggs" but those eggless books are found natural food stores. So as for Justin and I being meat eatters that we are, we are having a harder time finding books for Luckas:( Thank goodness for this book.
I just wanted to say if I have offened anyone I'm sorry. We are not going VEGAN or VEGETARIAN. Abuse to animals is very wrong, but we love meat to much! I was born on chicken, steak and mashed potatoes!! I have been doing alittle more than a handful of research for Luckas; health.Thanks for reading:)
