Has Anyone Ever Traveled To Mexico? My Son Has So Many Allergies That We Never Eat Out.

Has Anyone Ever Traveled To Mexico? My Son Has So Many Allergies That We Never Eat Out.

He typically eats chicken, pork and ground beef. Rice, corn and potatoes are fine. I just want to be able to shop at the Walmart in Mazatlan and know that their labeling is accurate. This is a huge leap of faith for me and I'm scared.

I haven't been post-diagnosis. But, I do love to travel and my allergies held me back for a long time. Until I meet a lady in a grocery store who mentioned her allergies almost non-existent in other countries, so I decided I wasn't going to let it hold me back anymore.

Your son definitely has an extensive list! I'm vegan by choice, but also allergic to dairy, so that wasn't that bad of a switch. In addition, I'm allergic to soy, corn, gluten, peanuts. Eat out is a challenge, but I do find that eat at vegan or gluten-free restaurants to be the easiest. Do to my allergies I don't like salads anymore! blah, but it is a good back up plan, sometimes. Anyways, that wasn't answering your question directly. I found this book to be very helpful and there are a few others that are great too. Try checking out these websites and calling ahead of time to find something that meets your needs. I feel like I need to start a blog now on this exact topic, lol. Oh and one more thing, famarlize yourself with the allergens in spanish that will your lives a little easier.
