I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Allergy-Free Ice Cream!

One of the most common questions I see in the nut allergy community is “where can I find nut-free ice cream?!?” Here’s the answer: A La Mode Shoppe in NYC, a 100% nut-free ice cream shop with dairy-free and gluten-free options as well. I chatted with owner Sandy Roth about how A La Mode Shoppe got started, her favorite flavor combo, how they keep a dedicated nut-free facility, the future of their business, and more!

Nut-Free, Gluten-Free Stuffing

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I’m gearing up to cook an epic feast that’s nut-free, gluten-free, and also includes dairy-free and vegan options! One of the trickiest items is stuffing, a dish usually full of gluten..and nuts. Today is also National Stuffing Day, which felt like the perfect time for me to share a few of my favorite recipes and pre-made allergen-free (nut-free and gluten-free specifically) stuffing mixtures.

Don’t Worry, Eat Happy!

After transitioning to a gluten-free diet a few years ago a cuisine that has been largely off limits for me has been Chinese food. While I love egg rolls and dumplings, there are very few restaurants that offer a gluten-free variation on the typical gluten-filled recipes. I was excited to learn about Feel Good Foods, which was started by food-loving celiac Vanessa Phillips and accomplished chef Tryg Siverson. Now offering frozen gluten-free egg rolls, dumplings, empanadas, taquitos, and full Asian meals. I was lucky enough to speak with Vanessa and learn a bit more about Feel Good Goods.

Halloween Costume? Check. Wipes? Check.

Halloween Candy

Halloween is right around the corner and I’m finalizing my game plan for celebrating. While I love to bring my own safe candy to parties that I attend (we’re talking nut-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free), Halloween can provoke a bit of anxiety as it’s a holiday centered around food, most of which is usually not safe for me and my husband to consume due to the enormous amount of candy containing life-threatening allergens.

Nut-Free, Gluten-Free Granola. You read it right.

I first stumbled upon 88 Acres last fall when looking for a granola bar that was gluten-free and didn’t contain nuts. My search came up fruitless, it appeared to me that granola seemed to go hand in hand with nuts (lots of them) and most often also traces of gluten. I felt like I’d never be able to find safe granola…until I discovered the company 88 Acres.
