Just wanted to say hello. Hi!

Den. Moderate Dairy Allergy, with many other contact allergies. I get excema on my hand and IBS-like symptoms when I consume milk/dairy products. Soy and eggs seem to be ok. After attempting to manage my eczema and only reaching a certainly point with it (avoiding known contact irritants), I went DF one day and the eczema began to clear up and my IBS symptoms are nearly non-existent. (go figure! *g*) I feel SO much better, but am just so anxious for my eczema to continue to clear up. It isn't helping that I also recently had a wretched reaction to homemade Goat's Milk Soap, so I'm waiting on that to clear up as well. (I'm in the itchy as it heals stage, which I think is nearly as bad as the itchy from a break out stage)

Patience has never been a strong suit of mine. ;-)

I did have a question though. We camp a LOT in the summer time and we usually eat pot luck style with the other campers. Obviously that won't be an option for me, so what are some easily portable DF food items I can take with me? (We do have a camper, so space/refrigeration is not an issue)

But anyway. Hi! :D

Here's a list of things I made for myself to help plan camping food due to my own list of allergies:
Apples Celery Carrots Cucumber Green Beans
Peanut Butter & Hummus for dipping
Leftovers (Chili works well as a corn chip dip)
Various sausages (Bratwurst, Knockwurst, Hot Dogs) <-you'll want to check labels
Sauerkraut Mustard Ketchup
Crackers
Hot dog rolls
Tea bags
Potato or corn chips
Banana chips
Granola Bars
Beef Jerky
Canned or dried fruit
Nuts
Oatmeal, eggs, bacon or other breakfast foods that you like

Your list looks very similar to previous lists of mine. ;-)
