Have you ever gone to someone's home and not been able to dine (or even snack) with them because of your diet restrictions? It's no fun! We do our best and try to plan in advance. Being prepared with our own safe foods in anticipation of those food events is helpful. Ok, So that's what to do when we're the guests. We know the drill, right? Bet you never thought of your food allergies as an opportunity? We didn't ask for food allergies and sensitivities but maybe they're an opportunity for us to increase our sensitivity? I find myself inquiring from our guests about any food allergies/sensitivities they have. Reading labels and being creative with recipes for our family has also enabled me to cook for others with food allergies. Think about how good you feel when others remember your food allergies and prepare something you can enjoy. Your food allergy can make you sensitive in more more ways than one!
