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.
