Meal delivery service for grieving family

One of my co-workers has lost both parents within 3 months of each other. We are not super super close, and so far she hasn't accepted my offers of specific, practical things I can do to help (watching her kids, going to grocery store. etc.). I'd like to make her life a little easier anyway, so I was thinking about some kind of meal delivery service so she wouldn't need to cook for a little bit. [more inside]

Food intolerance test from a chiropractor, dubious at best?

What are some gluten free shelf stable proteins and veggies?

We are looking for shelf-stable, packaged proteins and veggies that are gluten free to go in lunches. We know about GoPicnic already, but we'd like some more variety and real vegetables of some sort! Proteins are mostly easy (spreads, dips, cheeses, jerkies), but finding the individual packed shelf stable ones are tough. We have found no veggies that fit the bill at all- we were thinking freeze dried veggies, but that sounds unappetizing and looks really expensive (also not individually packaged).

I need new sauces, veggies, dips now that tomatoes are a no.

I'm vegan, and have recently developed an allergy to tomatoes (when I eat them, or broccoli, I get hand ezcema, which may be related to chromium.) I need ideas for new toppings for pasta (I like goddess dressing but need variety) and tortilla chips (guacamole is good but not all the time) as well as suggestions for ways to incorporate other vegetables into my diet. I miss tomatoes very much and feel a little lost.

Safe, sane, long term low carb diet?

Practical, science-based, safe, sane "low carb" book that doesn't pull any punches? (If simply "Atkins," which one?) I'm looking for a book that is gung-ho, but still spells out what can go wrong and why: I'm three days in to a self-created low carb diet. All sorts of good stuff has happened, but all sorts of disconcerting stuff has happened, too. [more inside]

Eating out with milk allergy/intolerance

I want to know how have people with milk allergies and/or lactose intolerance changed their lifestyle in terms of eating out. It seems it should be simple- all you need to know if there is milk in it- but then again, not so much, esp if its not consistent (different brands etc). I am not interested in answers of the kind, "ask the waiter" but I am more interested in knowing how it affected this part of your life. Is it a drain to eat out with people at the new office when they ask you out? Do you turn a date down just because..? How did you accept that you may never be able to enjoy that ice-cream or cheesecake again?? (sigh)

Food allergy filter. Why does eating chocolate candy (and other types of candy) makes me break out a couple of hours later? What does that indicate?

Cooking Challenge: Elimination Diet Recipes

Cooking Challenge 2006: Someone once said that anyone can make great food if they can use any ingredients, but the real challenge is coming up with something with a very limited selection of ingredients. So, make/find/modify me recipes using *only* the ingredients on the (somewhat short) list inside, or conversely, that don't include any of the ingredients on the (very long) list provided inside. (Elimination diet) [more inside]
