I’ve had digestive problems for years. I was diagnosed with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) when I was 17. In my 20s, I became lactose intolerant. By my late 20s, I could not tolerate dairy at all even with the special products like lactaid and dairyease. I also found that I had some food sensitivities. Eating became a literal pain.

These products are foods I’ve experimented with and can eat most of the time without a reaction. All are vegan, so all are egg and dairy free. All the mixes listed work well with EnerG Egg Replacer and Soy Milk (if needed).

Please use your judgement when trying these foods. Always read ingredient labels for suspect ingredients. If you know you can’t tolerate a certain food, avoid it.

Many of these items are available at health food stores, grocery stores, and online stores (view the list of online stores to purchase via the internet).
