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!
The holiday season is in full swing, which means invites to celebrations that most likely involve alcohol. In order to be safe and stay educated,Â I’ve compiled a handy guide of alcohol that contains nut ingredients. We’re talking beer, brandy, gin, liqueurs, rum, vodka, and whiskey. I was surprised that many types of gin are made with almonds, who knew!
It’s no secret that I love to travel. Not only am I lucky enough to have a full-time job that allows me to travel quite frequently, but one of my greatest passions in life is seeing new places. I’ve narrowed down what I always carry in my bag to a few essential items that I never leave home without. The most important thing? Antibacterial hand wipes.
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.
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.
Even though my trick or treating days are long gone, I still love to indulge in Halloween candy and treats! I’ve rounded up my top ten list of the best allergy friendly (nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free) treats to enjoy during the holiday season.
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.
I have a new obsession and its name is fonut. Baked and/or steamed and never fried, fonuts replicate the donut taste you know and love, but give it a modern spin, with many gluten-free and vegan options.
I was lucky enough to speak with the founder of Allergy Amulet, Abi Barnes, a lifelong food allergy sufferer who dreamt of creating a fast and portable food allergen detection device which would allow individuals to feel safer about the foods they eat.
I’ve distilled the long list into a concise bite-sized guide of the best gluten-free, nut-free, and dairy-free spots in Vancouver. Read on for my 24-Hours in Vancouver, British Columbia: A Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Dairy-Free Guide.
Of all the puddings in the world, the variety that has won my heart is rice pudding. After transitioning into a gluten-free diet, I discovered an even deeper love for this sweet treat which is naturally gluten-free, and nut-free! As today is National Rice Pudding Day I wanted to share a few of my favorite rice pudding recipes from around the internet.
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.
