I'll keep this in mind while I look for recipes and go through my own. Hopefully I'll find some for you.

 The biggest problem may be breakfast and desserts. I would choose oatmeal or dry cereal, granola bars, sausage, bacon or ham on biscuit or English muffin or toast, muffins and fruit. smoothies, corned beef hash, biscuits and sausage gravy (no pancakes, French toast). Lunch and dinner shouldn't be as big a problem, you'll just have to look at the ingredients. Many desserts like cookies, cakes have eggs. Pie crust doesn't, so fruit pies should be ok.

look up the ratio but you can make a gel out of flax seed and water to replace eggs in cooking :)

oh wait the recipe is on my bag of flax

mix 1 TBSP flaxseed meal with 3 TBSP water in a small bowl and let sit for two minutes.  Add to a recipe as you would an egg.

That is to replace one egg.  I hope it helps!

There are lots of egg substitutes in recipes! Google it! You can use banana or applesauce if its as a binder. If egg is a levening agent you can use a baking soda water combo.

My DS has had an egg allergy for 5 years now, finally its getting better. So. Most recipes are egg free. Baking however is different. I can't tell you what to you use for sure, every recipe is different. For instance, cupcakes, pancakes, waffles you can easily replace egg with soda. However Cakes you need an egg replacer such as Ener-G egg replacer, I get that at the whole foods store.  Works well for cakes, I can usually cook tier cakes.  I have found this to be the best replacer out of all the homeade or thought up replacements, I have made many beautiful, fondant cakes with this. But desserts are gonna be the biggest challenge.

In school you will need to make sure ur teacher knows and start stocking for replacements for parties ect. I keep egg free cookies and cake mixes, brownies ect, in the pantry just for school functions.  My son now can tolerate eggs to an extent, but instead of having a severe deadly reaction like he used to have, he is now just breaking out very slightly on his back. So his allergist is hoping in the next year or 2 since we have slowly introduced him back to eggs he will no longer be allergic.

This is what I do. You can even do the same thing for oil.
