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.
