Allergen Detection Service Dogs…Until There’s a Cure! Interview with Ciara Gavin

Allergen Detection Service DogsI was recently connected with Ciara Gavin of Allergen Detection Service Dogs in a joint effort to work together to increase Food Allergy Awareness by holding a conference in Colorado Springs.  While that whole idea is still in the works, I was immediately intrigued by the work being done by Ciara and her team.  I needed to know more!  Lucky for me, she agreed to come to Denver and meet over lunch to discuss the work we both do.  I am honored to share with all of you the amazing services being provided through Allergen Detection Service Dogs!

First, I have to say that I was lucky enough to meet one of these amazing dogs named Tucker, who is actually a mobility dog, and has a unique set of skills outside of allergen detection.  However, he was in the restaurant with us and was well received, well behaved, and an all around incredible animal.  I was hooked from Read More »

AllergyEats Makes Traveling Easier This Spring,

Helps Families Find Food Allergy-Friendly Restaurants Nationwide

AllergyEats, The Most Comprehensive Source for Finding Allergy-Friendly Restaurants,

Offers Free Peer-Based Ratings, Tips & Info-Sharing Forums
BOSTON, MA (March 19, 2012) – Millions of people will travel this season for spring break, school vacation and the Easter/Passover holidays, and for most of them, these trips mean fun, relaxation and wonderful adventures.  But for the 15 million people with food allergies (and their families), traveling can be a source of tremendous anxiety.  Dining in unfamiliar cities and restaurants – which may or may not be able to accommodate their special dietary requirements – can be extremely stressful.  Worrying about a possible allergic reaction compounds the problem.  But the food allergy community can depend on AllergyEats (www.allergyeats.com), the biggest and fastest growing source for finding allergy-friendly restaurants, to help them more comfortably dine out wherever they are – resulting in a more enjoyable, less stressful trip.

Amazon Sellers Can Be Sneaky – Annie Chun’s 6 Pack for $7 But Not Yet

Hey guys!

A quick heads up.

I buy Annie Chun’s sticky rice on Amazon. It’s convenient and cooks in a minute in the microwave.

This Pack of 6 sells for $17 now, but goes on sale for $7.96 every few weeks.

I buy the limit of 4 six packs when they go on sale.

Also, I choose the “one time buy” option – they have a subscription model that probably nails you when they change to the higher price.

Some of these vendors are sneaky like that.

Apple Spice Hummus: Dessert Hummus with a Healthful Edge

I recently attended a gluten, dairy, and soy-free cooking class at Williams-Sonoma at The Forum in Norcross. All of the recipes we sampled were quite tasty, but the Apple Spice Hummus was ‘smack you lips’ fantastic. I have never had what I deem to be dessert hummus before and one that was also healthful, so I just had to share. Read More »

Applebee’s Offering Gluten-free Options

Gluten-free residents can add another restaurant to the growing list that will accommodate their needs – Applebee’s.  Applebee’s joins a host of many other restaurants that are now offering a list of menu items that don’t contain gluten.  As noted, this list is subject to change, so make sure to check back frequently.  

As with any restaurant, there is always a risk of cross-contamination.  To help minimize the risk, ask to speak with the manager on duty.  Be sure to ask how the menu item is prepared and if it is cooked on surfaces or Read More »

Arby’s Offers Up Gluten-Free Menu [Updated April 8, 2017]

 

Over the past few years more & more restaurants have been adding gluten-free menus to their repertoire.  This is a much welcomed change to people who have had to follow the diet for any period of time.  Simply being able to order off of the menu and not bring food in from the outside is a pleasure.

Arby’s is the latest establishment in this explosion of gluten-free menus.  Arby’s has multiple meat items, several salads, drinks & even shakes on the menu.

The French fries and potato cakes are off limits due to cross-contamination issues; sharing the deep fryer with chicken fingers, chicken patties and mozzarella sticks makes them unsafe.
