Don't worry, there is life after peanut butter. As well as wheat, shellfish, dairy, and other common food allergies. Below you'll find recipe solutions for the most common food allergies out there.
Peanuts and Tree Nuts
If Ants on a Log if off the menu, try Celery Nacho Boats instead. Or instead of trail mix that contains nuts or traces of nuts, dig into a savory Parmesan Dill Popcorn. And if the creamy peanut butter spread is what you're after, try Avocado Toast. You still get all the creamy texture, plus the healthy fats.
Gluten or Wheat
Soy is hidden in a number of ingredients, and sometimes places you least suspect. If you're avoiding soy, be sure to read the labels and look for soy-free products such as Vegenaise, Soy-Free Quorn Chik N Tenders, and Soy-Free Macrobars. And if you'd like fries that, Veggie Curly Fries are a tasty soy-free option.
Milk and Dairy
Thanks to an assortment of soy and avocado-based products, it's possible to enjoy all the goodness of ice cream and other desserts, sans the dairy. Dairy-Free Frozen Yogurt Bark and Chocolatey Avocado Pudding are two of our favorites. For entrees and more ideas, browse our collection of dairy-free recipes.
