By Cathe Fein Olson "Avid reader and writer" - August 16, 2005
For those with food allergies, maintaining a vegan diet can be challenging. Soy, nuts, corn, and glutinous grains are in so many foods that it is difficult to avoid them. Food Allergy Survival Guide will help you to figure out what foods you are sensitive to and how to replace them with healthful, plant-based ingredients.
The book starts with an explanation of what food allergies and intolerances are and what they are caused by. If you ever wanted to know in detail how your digestive system works, you will get a full description in this book. Food Allergy Survival Guide also provides information about many medical conditions like arthritis, asthma, ADHD, candida, celiac disease, depression, dermatitis, fatigue, and migraines that can be caused by or worsened by certain foods. For each condition, there are suggestions of possible food culprits and suggestions to manage the condition.

Fantastic, resourceful guide - Vegan Cookbook
By M. Priem "Food Allergy Mom" - April 29, 2006
This book is very helpful, especially if you are newly diagnosed with food allergies. Or, if you want to dive into the depths of analysis of food allergies and many related issues (ie Asthma). It covers all the A-Z's, including label-reading and hidden allergies, along with cross-contamination risks. A good starter "guide."
However, if you are looking for a cookbook, unless you are a Vegan, you probably want to seek an alternative, as 100% of the 100 recipes are Vegan.
