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.

Summertime is synonymous with sunshine, backyards, beaches, and BBQ. Given that National Hot Dog Day happens this month I felt inspired to create my own Allergy Free Wife spin on the typical hot dog meal, replacing the hot dog with a fire-roasted fuji apple chicken sausage, trading in a traditional wheat bun for a gluten-free variety made with whole grains, and swapping out fries for baked lentil chips.

Of the 550 pizza places in NYC, only 25 offer gluten-free pizza. In the mood for just a slice instead of the whole pie? Youâ€™re now limited to about 5 spots. Options for those wanting gluten-free pizza by the slice in NYC are pretty dismal, which is why when I heard that Vinnieâ€™s Pizzeria in Brooklyn was creating made from scratch gluten-free pizza by the slice, I wanted to learn more!
I love sandwiches of all kinds. One of the saddest moments I had when going gluten-free was the realization that sandwiches wouldn’t be as easy to eat with limited bread options. As more and more restaurants offer gluten-free options it’s become easier for me to partake in delicious sandwiches in the world. A favorite snack staple was almond butter and marmalade (fancy!). When I started dating my now-husband who has a nut allergy, I stopped eating any nut butters as I don’t want to kill him with a kiss. Recently I’ve been experimenting with no-nut butters and other spreadable substitutes which give me the same satisfaction as a nut butter sandwich, but keeps my husband safe. Win win! Here are a few of my favorites.
One of the best parts of my job is that I get the chance to travel quite often. My company is based in San Francisco, which means I’ve been able to get to know the city quite well during my frequent visits. After extensive research, I’ve narrowed down on my favorite allergy-friendly spots to visit during my 24-hour jaunts to the West Coast.
I’m very lucky to have a job that allows me to travel quite a bit, both domestically and internationally. This week I’m in Mexico City for a whirlwind 48-hours, and during my time here I wanted to make sure I was able to squeeze in a few allergy friendly restaurants I’d found from my research.
