We will not eat any P/TN, "May contains", or "Made ins." DH will not even eat them at the office. I am also fortunate that my parents "get it" and follow the same rules in their house as well. We used to LOVE P/TN products - now even a commercial turns my stomach and gets me upset. While we are desparately hopeful that DS will outgrow PA, I do not think I could ever eat them again.

My husband and I don't eat/buy any peanut products, may contains, or manufactured ins. When my husband and I go out to eat at a restaurant, we avoid the obvious--anything with nuts or peanuts. It doesn't really matter to us since we really don't care for PB or things like Chinese food.
Our girls, however, are allowed to eat whatever they want at school, but if they eat obvious peanut products, they are warned to do it before lunch, not right before coming home from school. They go straight to the bathroom to wash their hands after getting off the bus too.

I eat PB about once a year at my in-laws, when the kids go out for breakfast with grandpa. I crave it and this is my once-a-year treat.
At home we have no peanut products, not even may contain. I do buy Soy nut butter and Sunflower seed butter for myself to use. DS tried them and wasn't impressed.
Maybe twice a year I order something with satay sauce ( only on "date-night" when the kids are at home - and I do a good wash-up after).
So I guess I haven't totally eliminated peanut products from my diet, though I probably could.

I can't help it, reading this thread is making me long for peanut butter on toast. It's so strange because I haven't craved pb for years. I keep thinking about the way it melts on the hot toast...weird, some of us gag at the thought and the others are salivating. I am going to a friend's house tomorrow morning for coffee (while my son is in school) and I'm going to get some from her!!!

I had the pb on toast this morning. My friend only had organic unsweetened natural pb and it was kinda dry and didn't really melt. I put honey on it but it still wasn't that great. Wow, glad I got that out of my system. I discovered pb isn't that great, but Jif sure does wonders with it--adding lots of salt, sugar, etc., really helps. Actually, the organic pb sort of reminds me of soy nut butter. Jif or Skippy needs to get into the soybutter business. They could probably make that stuff taste great.

I hear ya Sandra...melted PB on toast, actually my favorite...and I don't think I could stand that organic stuff, although I've searched everywhere around here for Soynut Butter or the Sunflower Butter and absolutely NO ONE sells it...I would love to try it, to see if I could replace the pb.

cam's mom: we do have soynut butter here (but not sunbutter yet). however, all the soynut butter i can find is "may contain" which, of course, doesn't help us at all. good luck finding it. we're in a small town. joey

Our household (and diets) have been free of any type of nut since we found out my son was PA. Even when we go out without my son, we never eat products that could hurt him since we are never sure if we need to be up with him during the night. Better safe than sorry we say.
I went to an out of town conference a few years back and had the opportunity to eat peanuts since I was without my family. I bought peanut butter fudge, and I must say I was disgusted by the taste - and I absolutely LOVED all types of peanuts and peanut butter before my son was diagnosed. Must be subconscious!

I used to love PB and peanuts, but could not even eat them on the plane on a trip w/out the kids to Hawaii. It would be five days until I saw my son, but peanuts are the enemy now.

The ONLY "nuts" in our house are me, my husband and our daughter!
