Several weeks ago, my one year old daughter was tested for allergies and the results indicated that she was sensitive to wheat, eggs, dairy, nuts, and shellfish! Since I’m still breastfeeding, I have to avoid these foods as well. The combination of her allergies together with my husband’s allergies makes it quite challenging to find/prepare meals that everyone (including myself) can eat! It’s a good thing that I’m used to making everything from scratch. I just really miss being able to eat out or buy commercially packaged products. I especially miss my snacks/sweets (I have a sweet tooth) since store-bought snacks have wheat, eggs, or dairy.

My daughter is 20 months now and I’m finally weaning her from breastmilk to cow’s milk. I was holding off on introducing cow’s milk for a long time because my husband has dairy allergies, so I was afraid to introduce milk to my daughter, not to mention the unknown amount of plastic, synthetic hormones, antibiotics, [...]

I mentioned in an earlier post this year that iHerb ships to China! iHerb is an online store based in California that sells all sorts of natural and health products, including vitamin supplements, bath & beauty, gluten-free food, and more. It’s great because if there’s something I can’t find at import stores here in Shanghai, [...]

In recent years, I’ve received many emails from people who stumbled upon my blog and wanted to learn more about managing the gluten-free diet in Shanghai/China. These people include people traveling to and/or living in China. I’m glad this blog has served its purpose (reason why I started this blog many years ago), if only [...]

Just came across two articles (link and link) saying that gluten-free products and related purchases can be tax-deductible. From Celiac.com: The following guidelines were received from the Oct. 1993 CSA/USA National Conference in Buffalo, NY: You can claim only the EXTRA COST of the gluten-free product over what you would pay for the similar item [...]

Shipping to China is relatively reasonable (under $13) without worrying about import tax or getting stuck at customs because iHerb limits [...]

When my baby was starting solids several months ago, I wasn’t sure whether she was going to take after her father with all the food sensitivities and allergies.
