As a Los Angeles native, I wanted to create a bite-sized guide to one of my favorite cities in the world. Read on for the best spots in the city of angels for gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free eats.
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.
