Welcome back to Allergy-Free Wednesday – a weekly allergy-friendly party!  If you missed last week’s entries check them out here!   I’ve started pinning all my top-8 free favorites to a new Pinterest board called Allergy Free Wednesdays Favorites.   You don’t have to have a Pinterest account to see it, but if you do have a Pinterest account make sure you are following the new board!  Here are this weeks favorites:


Traveling with Food Allergies, Part One

I received the following email from a Real Food, Allergy Free reader:

…I wanted to ask you if you had any suggestions for allergy friendly foods to take on a road trip. We are going out of town later this month and staying in a hotel for a few days. My son is 20 months and has life threatening allergies to egg, milk, wheat, peanuts, and soy.

We can’t feed him anything from a restaurant (except applesauce) because of potential cross-contamination, so I’m planning on packing all his food. I’m still nursing so milk isn’t a problem for him. I will definitely be bringing the banana chocolate chip muffins along as those are his favorite and I thought the pouch tuna packets for protein. Any other ideas?

I thought it was an excellent and timely question with spring break coming in just a few weeks. I’ll share my thoughts, and I’d love for you all to jump in with your ideas in the comment section. Look for part two of this article which includes lists of foods that travel well and meals that can be prepared in a hotel room.  This should be fun!
