2015-11-13 Fabulous Food Allergy Friday the 13th

I’m guessing that someone, somewhere has some superstitious food traditions, but not us, not here. Mostly, we’re just looking for tasty, safe-for-us recipes.

This week, I found a rice burger — I stumbled on this concept a while back, but had never really pursued it. This Bulgogi Rice Burger version looks incredible.

Everyone knows I love potatoes, but these are supremely cute — cute enough to be worth the kind of persnickety cutting, I think: Hasselback Tots

Here’s an article on biphasic anaphylaxis that might be helpful to people. Watch for the signs, and keep your epi-pens on you after you get discharged from the ER just in case.

And for more science, here’s a position paper of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology on food allergy due to immunological cross-reactions with common inhalant allergens. It’s kind of fascinating stuff, and I (Denise) think it may explain the development of many of my allergies. 

Have a good weekend everyone!
