2015-07-31 Fabulous Food Allergy Friday

Arethusa Falls, White Mountains NH
Arethusa Falls, White Mountains NH

Welcome to Friday. Another week survived, right? And I (Mary Kate) did survive the hike to this waterfall. Barely. I should get out and hike or walk more.

This week, I’m armchair-traveling to Warsaw, Poland with V8Mile. I’m an excellent armchair traveler. All reviewed meals are vegan and gluten-free, too, so that’s a great bonus.

Thinking about traveling and easy food to travel with, I’ve needed an on-the-go meal three times this week, and this kind of grain-veggie-bean dish, with a tasty dressing, is my go-to. I like the extra touches in oh she glow’s quinoa and black beans. It keeps well in a lunch bag, and doesn’t need to be heated to eat.

I (Denise) will likely soon be over-run by zucchini from the garden, so this recipe for Garlic Marinated Zucchini from The Kitchn will probably prove useful very soon.

Also, I finally decided to order a medical alert bracelet, actually two, one for work, and a more casual and durable one for the weekend. In the same vein of trying to be prepared, I found this article on preparing for natural disasters  with food allergies. It’s geared toward kiddos but as adults we can extrapolate. 

Enjoy the weekend!

    1. Hi! I just wanted to say thanks for this blog! I just decided to rid my bathroom of all the products containing coconut after trying for months to get rid of my cystic acne. I noticed that when I consume coconut oil I have severe breakouts the very same day, and just after trying a new shampoo bar that contained coconut oil my scalp is now painfully covered in pimples as well. Unfortunately, the box I filled with products I will no longer be using is worth over $100 but of course I would pay that much to have my health back in my hands! Thank you again! I am ordering everything I need to make your shampoo and toothpaste!
