Special Diet Recipes

Allergy Free!

Many readers have specific dietary concerns (such as allergies), and therefore I’m now tagging my recipe posts according to the dietary requirements they meet and the allergens they do not contain.

If a recipe is tagged under one of the following, it means there is an option for the recipe to fit into that particular category:

Why no egg-free or milk-free categories? All of my recipes are free of eggs and dairy!

Search by Ingredient:

(You can also search for any ingredient by typing a word or phrase into my search bar. It’s located on the right sidebar of the blog.)

And non-ingredient tags:

    Hello,
    I would appreciate any help regarding searching for recipes. [I use the search bar all the time, so I know how to use that.]
    I am trying to search for recipes using “coconut flour”. I have typed the following into the search bar:
    coconut flour
    coconut + flour
    coconut +flour
    etc. etc…. I end up with 21 pages of recipes that have the words “coconut” and/or “flour” in them–which, of course, is not helpful… =) Any advice as to what I am doing incorrectly would be appreciated! Thank you in advance!

    That’s a really great idea! The only suggestion I have would be the addition of “fructose-free/low fructose” and possibly the same for histamine, provided you are familiar with those. Sugar-free recipes can be a good start, but often contain either honey, agave/maple syrup or the like, (sugared!) chocolate or fruit, which is largely unsuitable. I myself am a fructose-malabsorber and often find it surprising that although fructose-malabsorption (FM) is much more common than gluten-sensitivity or lactose-intolerance there is close to no market catering to it. I see lots of lactose- and gluten-free stuff on the shelves and tons of corresponding recipes, but (practically) nothing for FM (and then if I happen to find a rare chocolate with glucose it’s 4x or more the price of ordinary chocolate…)

    Is there any possibility that you could add a “grain-free” recipe filter?
    I’ve been using your website to cling on to the last few shreds of “normal” baked goods that I have available, since I started having health issues about a year ago…. (I’m only 26!!! I still require chocolate to function on a regular basis!!!)
    Thank you BTW, you’ve made eating gluten free and vegan a viable option for me! Upon doing a further review of my health issues tho, I’m having the suspicion that I may have to go GRAIN free…. (Aramath, quinoa, and buckwheat are apparently not grains.. So there is still hope!)
    Thanks again for paving the way for the rest of us who at one time thought vegan meant no chocolate! I’m very VERY pleased to be wrong about that!!!

    Hey Katie!

    I was wondering what recipes are good for nickel allergies? If you could help out that would be great!

    Thanks!

    Why can’t I search for a recipe (Healthy Graham Cracker Crust) ??? I don’t see how to find it without googling it.

    • Unofficial CCK Helper says

      Just use the search bar at the right sidebar of Katie’s site. Or go to the recipes tab at the top of the blog.

    I’m so glad that the paleo diet is starting to become more mainstream and indeed accepted.

    Personally, I think the Paleo diet is great. I am seeing and feeling the benefits of the diet for a long time now. Not only have I lost weight, but I feel much more energized, and much better in myself. I think the reason is that whilst the paleo diet may be a diet, I do actually eat much much varied food than I did previously. All I’ve done is taken out the stodge that my body finds hard to digest, and added more types of fruit, veg, and indeed meat.

    I’ve now actually taken an interest in cooking paleo meals, which I can guarantee is 100% better than throwing some ready meals in the oven like I used to.

    I’m situated in London and I generally long for the diverse sorts of cooking but healthy. I discovered your website when I was searching for healthy recipes. You have good recipes. Thanks so very much for sharing diet recipes. Much appreciated

    Could you put a link for the special diet recipes on the main recipe page where you have lunch & dinner recipes and healthy dessert recipes? It is a pain to get to now and some people may not know that you have them sorted this way. Thank you for your great recipes.

    My sister is allergic to basically everything…which is why finding your site is awesome! However, she’s also allergic to yeast and shouldn’t have baking powder/soda either….Can I just eliminate that from any recipe? It’ll roughly taste the same, but won’t rise??

    • Jason Sanford says

      Unfortunately it will depend on each individual recipe as to how it affects the recipe and there’s just no way to know how a substitution will turn out in a recipe unless you try. Be sure to report back if you experiment!
