If you can't take vitamins as supplements due to allergies, I suggest you talk to your doctor about IV vitamin treatments. Since there are no fillers or extra ingredients you should be able to tolerate them. I use holistic doctors who do these and have taken them for various conditions with no problem. Again, just a suggestion.

Do you live near a health food store? They usually have a lot of foods for people with allergies.

Hi Sara, I understand your dilema. :( I am allergic to more foods than what I am not allergic too. I try to remember to take supplements. You are right - even supplements you can have issues with. :( It is almost impossible to eat out. Even food shopping is so hard. Thankfully Publix actually has some food I can eat but I am getting pretty tired of chicken, coconut yogurt, bananas and rice milk is the biggest part of my diet. I have to read every ingredient in every product and supplement. Makes shopping more difficult and longer to shop. :( I tried a dietitian at the hospital but she would not help with planning a healthy diet with meals. That is actually why I came here to this group... try to find some menus or ideas of what I can eat. I know my body is really missing out on vegetables. No easy answer. I try to find new fruits and vegetables and grains that I have never tried before. There actually are some out there. :)

Hi there. I have a large amount and variety of allergies also. Including all mammalian meat due to a tick bite, almost all fruit, shell fish and now dairy products as well. I have been deficient in b 12 as well as many other vitamins and minerals. After seeing doctors, and nutritionists about it. I have begun to incorporate a variety of color groups of vegetables and whatever fruit I can eat. I have to eat at least three servings and vary the color groups every day.
Red, orange/ yellow, green, white, dark(purple blue or black). I also take B12 vitamins. Example for yesterday was a veggie bake with beets,onion,red potatoes, zucchini, yellow squash and carrots. I also ate blueberries. I am supposed to have at least one seving at each meal and eat three times a day. For protiens I also have to vary them daily. Beans chicken turkey eggs and regular fish are my choices. I also take vitamin D daily. My vitamins B12 is a spray and vit d is a gel tab. I am not sure if those options would help at all.
