I'm new to the allergy/intolerance life. Last week I was told to eliminate yeast, (sugar, vinegar, etc) wheat, oats and garlic from my diet.

Today I was invited to the boyfriend's parent's place for Thanksgiving dinner. I'm still totally overwhelmed with figuring out what I can cook myself. How do I deal with this meal? Stay home? Bring my own? Go and hope I don't get sick?

I hope it's not your first meeting with them. Hopefully by now they already know and love you.

I would recommend bringing your own food. That list of foods to eliminate would be difficult for someone to make a big dinner with no time to practice. Have you discussed this with your boyfriend yet?

Or you could bring a dish to share (something filling) and just ask that you be the first to take from that dish.

You should be fine with the turkey-just not the stuffing (is it an intolerance or an allergy-if it's an allergy, I would say avoid it all).

If this is your first time meeting with them, I would decline dinner and possibly pop around after the meal for a visit and coffee.

Consider this a practice for the Christmas and New Years parties to follow.
