List of Meat

by Allergy Guy

List of meat used as food. If you are allergic to one or two types of meat, you may be able to try some of the others. Some meats are exotic, be adventurous!

I am very auto immune allergic to all poultry including eggs. Fish makes my gut hurt. And lamb gives me almost the same as poultry.

The poultry fish allergy makes me wonder if I also can’t have alligator or snake meat. Always heard rattle snake was amazing. I’ve had alligator but not since I went gluten free and figured out my problem foods. So want to try, but scared
