I got the results of my allergy test a few weeks back and learned that in addition to gluten (which I already knew about) and a few others (garlic! chocolate! green beans!), I'm highly allergic to eggs. Eggs. I had four the morning I got the results. I had eight dozen semi-pastured backyard eggs in my fridge. :(
So now what? I've been gluten free for a while and since then have become more reliant on eggs in my baking. Especially as I've been tending towards grain-free. Anyone else TF and gluten/egg free? Can you direct me to resources? I bought some En-r-G egg replacer and have used it or flax goop with some success. I still want my family to enjoy good pastured eggs so sometimes I just cook for them skip out on the pancakes.
Now that I can't eat eggs, what should I watch for nutritionally? I guess I'll need more seafood to make up for the Omega 3's. What else? Choline?? I dunno.
Has anyone reversed an egg allergy? My ND says I can try a duck egg challenge in six months.
I've found a few old threads about egg-free breakfasts. Helpful.
I"m also sensitive to chicken eggs but I tolerate duck eggs just fine. After a few years of living without eggs or using egg subs, it is so lovely to have actual eggs to eat. After you do an elimination diet for a while, you could try introducing duck eggs and see how you do.
