In celebration of July 4th, I’m sharing five of my favorite quick, easy, allergy-free July 4th BBQ recipes. These are my go-to recipes when I need to make a nut-free, gluten-free dish […]
We’ve all been gluten-ed, it unfortunately happens to the best of us. Once the gluten-ing has occurred I have a few favorite remedies that don’t cure the symptoms, but do help to make the situation less painful. My go-to combination is ginger tea, hot lemon water, and my new favorite item: tummydrops. tummydrops were developed by Gastroenterologist Dr. Dustin James in partnership with his wife after hearing the frustration his patients expressed to him about the lack of effectiveness of over-the-counter stomach ache remedies.
There’s more to baking than gluten. During my trip to the United Kingdom last month I was lucky enough to visit Beyond Bread, which I’d heard was the spot to find the best gluten-free treats in London.
It’s no secret I have a sweet tooth, but I love when I can find something that feels a bit sinful to eat and figure out a recipe to make it healthier and allergy-free. After going gluten-free a few years ago waffles seemed like a breakfast item I could safely say goodbye to. Other than buckwheat, most waffles aren’t gluten-free and honestly, while delicious, are not particularly healthy. This changed after I discovered a recipe that was full of protein, and free of allergens: Power Protein Waffles!

Cinnamon raisin, everything, plain, blueberry, onion, french toast, rainbow bagel. I love them all. There’s nothing better than a Sunday morning with coffee, newspaper, and a toasted everything bagel topped with onions, capers, and lox. That is, unless you’re subjected to eating a gluten-less bagel, which for the most part are bad. Really, really bad. Until Sweet Note Bakery came along.
While I am guilty of having a sweet tooth, I do try to make smart choices when indulging in treats, especially candy. I’ve made it a rule to stay away from anything with high fructose corn syrup which immediately eliminates most brands of candy, until I stumbled upon Surf Sweets last year. Surf Sweets candies are gluten free, nut-free, soy-free, GMO-free, casein free, organic, and allergy friendly (free of the most common food allergens including wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish)!
To celebrate national chocolate chip cookie day day I’m sharing five of my favorite allergy-free chocolate chip cookies that can be purchased in stores. These cookies are 100% gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, and many are also top-8 free. As a bonus I’m including the best allergy-free chocolate chip cookie recipe if you want to get fancy and bake your own.
Food Allergy Awareness Week 2016 is in full swing, and each night landmark buildings across America will be lit up in teal in order to raise awareness about food allergies. Scheduled lightings include The Empire State Building in NYC, Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Terminal Tower in Cleveland, Peace Bridge in Buffalo, Pacific Science Center in Seattle, Niagara Falls, The Zakim Bridge in Boston, and more! A large majority of these buildings have been turned teal as a result of the work of the grassroots organization Turn it Teal.
