  • Availability of allergen-free food

    Salam,

    Can anyone confirm that plant-based milks are available in makkah/madinah? I've tried emailing bin dawood supermarket but they didn't reply, and the answers we got on g00gle maps didn't sound definitive. I don't fancy spending 4 weeks coughing like a TB sufferer :( And I'd rather not fill my suitcase with soya milk if I can help it, as I drink about 2 cartons a week!

    They wouldn't add dairy to bread would they? Just simple wholemeal loaves should be easy to find?

    How much money should I take to cover food costs? I can't eat the hotel stuff, all brown things. I can easily live off steamed potatoes and veg, and sandwiches, roughly how much money would that cost, does anyone know? We're going for 4 weeks. Also they must sell ready salted crisps, right? How much would they cost for a multipack? I know I must sound stupid, but there are so few foods I can bear to eat, and with the milk and egg allergy, even less that I can without feeling unwell. I've already lost a lot of weight recently, I don't want to waste away, nor be a burden to the others because of not getting enough to eat and feeling faint or whatever. So that's why I'm quite worried about this.

    Jazakallah everyone.

    PS I did notice they sell all the different coloured carrots in bin dawood! yAy! And there should be a good selection of fruit available?

    I've never been to Saudi so I don't know, but one way of making your own plant based milk is to soak a handful of cashews overnight and then blend it with some water the next day. I've used that to make smoothies and it tasted great and cashews wouldn't weigh much or take up much room in a suitcase. Other than that, sorry, I don't know.
