Whey-Out Food Allergy Forum: [url="http://wheyoutforum.proboards51.com/index.cgi"]http://wheyoutforum.proboards51.com/index.cgi[/url]
[i]This is my own forum, which I hope to build into a nation-wide clearinghouse of food allergy information, including a recipes, alternative ingredients, resource links, and national registry of food-allergy-friendly restaurants -- as well as warnings about allergens found in restaurants and processed foods. I welcome all of you to participate and would love your input.[/i]
Atlanta Families with Food Allergies: [url="http://support4affa.proboards57.com/"]http://support4affa.proboards57.com/[/url]
[i]This is a terrific family-oriented site, and the group has regular "night-out" get-togethers around the Atlanta metro area.[/i]
[b]PS... Jana,[/b] my soy-allergic niece lives in Spanaway, WA. Any input you would have for food-allergy places in the Seattle metro area would be extremely helpful!

Your niece is welcome to join the Seattle FEAST Yahoogroup (there's a button to click on [url="http://www.seattlefoodallergy.org"]http://www.seattlefoodallergy.org[/url] to start the free registration process) for more ideas - I'm not very familiar with soy allergies but I know there are others who are. Here is a list of restaurants that some people have found helpful for food allergies in the Seattle area

Jana,
Thanks for the tip! I'll pass the references along to my niece. When I learned more about Soy allergy, I didn't feel so bad about my daughter's milk and peanut allergies: Soy is in just about EVERYTHING.
