Mother's day is Sunday 12th May! I hope you all have a wonderful day celebrating the amazing women that are in your life and have crossed your paths. We have all been positively influenced by someone, not necessarily always family... take time to let them know you appreciate them in more ways than one.

This edition focus' is on chicken recipes. Chicken is the easiest staple meat tolerated and easy to prepare while on the strict elimination failsafe diet. I hope some of these recipes help to increase your repertoire.

You can buy whole fresh or frozen chicken; chicken breast fillets, thighs, pieces (make sure there is no seasoning or stuffing, they are not self-basting, marinated or a manufactured meat), remove skin due to amines.

Have a fab weekend, take care and happy cooking!

Fact Sheet

Fed Up: Fumes and Perfumes

"Some fragrances give me an instant headache and
make me feel sick to my stomach, I feel as if I am going
to vomit and just want to get away from it as quickly as possible".

Exposure to fumes and perfumes can affect food sensitive people in a variety of ways including headaches, lethargy, forgetfulness, respiratory problems, asthma and behaviour problems in children. Some chemicals act as sensitisers, that is, exposure can make you more sensitive to other chemicals. You can't avoid all chemicals, but you can reduce your total load. If this information seems overwhelming, go slowly. Get your food sorted out first.

Perfumes, fragranced products and environmental chemicals can cause all the symptoms of food intolerance due to inhaled salicylates and other chemicals. Some people are more sensitive than others.
