Devastated that a food intolerance would putan end to the enjoyment of yummy food, Linda Donald createdClever Cooking for Salicylate Intolerance, adaptingher favourite recipes using free, low or moderate salicylateingredients.

While the emphasis today is on healthy eating withlots of fresh fruit and vegetables, sadly in some instancesthis can ruin your life. Linda, who had been feeling unwellfor months, was pleased to finally find out what was makingher ill, but not to learn the cause was an intolerance tosalicylate, a natural chemical found in many of the foods weeat and products we use. Salicylates prevent rotting and protect against harmfulbacteria and fungi. Broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, onions,mushrooms, strawberries, lemons, dates, coconut, and raisinsare culprits along with honey, sesame, almonds, olive oil,wine, spices and herbs like mint and rosemary to name just afew.

The Auckland Allergy Clinic describessalicylate sensitivity as “the body’s inability tohandle more than a certain amount of salicylates at any onetime. a salicylate sensitive person may have difficultytolerating certain fruits, vegetables or any products thatcontain aspirin”. (Aspirin is a derivative of salicylicacid, also used in many pain-relieving medications).
