introducing new foods: quinoa

so far we only introduced one grain, oat bran, to k so we figured it was time to try another. i’ve been a fan of quinoa (*see recipes i’ve tried and information about quinoa ) and i was happy to find out that it is gluten free. quinoait should be safe for k, despite her allergies so we decided to introduce quinoa to k.

quinoa has been really hot the last few years so it is easy to find. i already had Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Organic Tricolor Quinoa at home so I started k off with that brand. later i found Ancient Harvest Gluten Free Organic Quinoa Flakes that you didn’t have to was and cooked faster, which was great since it cut down the prep time.

food allergy: skin prick test

to figure out what is causing k’s eczema, the dermatologist suggested we take her for a skin prick test. you can test one or more food at a time. during the test an allergist uses a small plastic probe or needle and gently pricks or scratches the skin to allow a tiny amount of the solution containing the food allergen to enter just below the surface.
