On the Eve of Peanut Butter

And so we seek to, yet again, enter the world of legumes. But since we have always been booted swiftly from this lovely world, I am a little nervous about the peanut butter!!! I am in no way concerned about an IgE reaction. But an FPIES reaction. . . .well, let's just say I will be double sure to have our ER bag in order. But on the plus side, IF it is a pass. . . WOW. What a pass it will be! In my mind, it is even bigger than fish (and fish was big!) because (A) She can have it every day (B) It will be a great way for her to work on some of her texture issues (issues with creamy stuff) and (C) We will finally break into the inner circle of legumes!

I am excited despite the anxiety. As a vegetarian and a mama with a big sweet tooth, I consume quite a bit of peanut butter, especially since giving up soy in my diet because of it bothering B through my milk. I am fantasizing about peanut butter cookies, peanut butter smoothies, peanut butter sorbet, FROSTING, fudge, cake. . . . the list goes on and on! Plus, if peanut butter goes well, we will try and squeeze in a chocolate trial before Valentine's Day and she can finally taste the beauty of chocolate peanut butter!

So wish us luck and I will keep updating the blog about our trial! Also, be sure to look for posts on FPIES freezer foods. . . hoping to make a little less stress for all of us mamas cooking multiple meals at dinner time.
