Now Available: Living with Oral Allergy Syndrome: A Gluten and Meat-Free Cookbook for Wheat, Soy, Nut, Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Allergies


Get it in print from:
or ask at your local bookstore if they can order it for you! 

If your lips, mouth or tongue have ever tingled after eating fresh fruits or vegetables, if wheat makes you wheeze, if soy makes you sick, or if nuts knock you out, there's a good chance you have oral allergy syndrome, a hay-fever related food allergy.

Oral allergy syndrome, also known as pollen food allergy syndrome, or food pollen allergy, occurs when people react to foods that are related to certain pollens. For example, if you're allergic to birch pollen, you may notice your lips tingle when you eat a fresh apple, peach, or almonds. If you're allergic to grass, ragweed or latex, you might find that kiwis, bananas, or tomatoes give you hives or belly aches.

If any of this applies to you, you'll want to read this book, the most comprehensive resource on oral allergy syndrome to date.

Oral allergy syndrome is the leading cause of food allergies, with 50-90% of people with hay fever suffering from related food allergies.  However, it is little understood and often goes unrecognized, unreported and undiagnosed. Those with it often feel frustrated by the lack of information, and may be confused about what to eat. 

The goal of Living with Oral Allergy Syndrome is to help you live better with food allergies, and to help you take control back over your diet and health.

  1. Congratulations, Danielle! I know you've worked so hard to bring this book to life. May it help many people!

  2. Just wanted to let you know everytime I click on the link to take me to amazon it comes back as a broken link. Going to add it to my wish list hoping someone will give it to me for Christmas. Finding your site gave me first real clue to my son-in-laws allergies. Unfortunately I have multiple food allergies and making meals that we both can share in is hard. Thank you for sharing so much information on your website.

    1. Thanks so much for letting me know, Kat, I've fixed the broken links. So glad the site has helped you and I hope someone surprises you at Christmas with the book :)

  3. Sounds great! Congrats on all your hard work.

    1. Thanks, Miachel, I'm glad it's finally out there :) Now on to the next project!

  4. Hi, I live in the uk and amazon sell it but I wondered how easy the recipes are as the ingredients will be different?

    1. Hi Jo, you shouldn't have a tough time finding most of the ingredients. Most of the flours used are standard gluten free flours such as sorghum flour and tapioca starch and xanthan gum, which I believe are widely available, and many of the other recipes are built around cooking/processing fruits and vegetables for a lengthy period of time to make them safer to eat. Otherwise the recipes are easy to follow, with step-by-step instructions and lots of photos. I hope that helps :)

    2. Hi Danielle, thank you so so much I was hoping you would say it would be ok. I'm off to buy it now. Been looking for a OAS book for ages. Thank you x


I'd love to hear from you so go ahead, leave a comment!
