Anyone Have Lunch Ideas For Eating During Work Training?

Anyone Have Lunch Ideas For Eating During Work Training?

I will be out of town for training with my work. I will be at a facility that will provide meals. I have never had success with eating when someone has catered the food in. I will not have access safe restaurants and will not have my own transportation nor familiarity with the area to try to venture away on my own. I am looking for something that I can brown bag to take to eat at the hotel and during the conference. I have Peanut, Tree Nut, Shellfish and Iodine allergies. Thanks in… read more

Contact the organizer of the training and inform them of the food allergy. It’s the same as accommodating people with mobility disabilities, etc.

Country Crock makes plant butter that is a really good substitute. I made apple crisp with it and I thought it was as good as dairy butter.

How Do You Explain To Restaurants That You Have Food Allergies And How Do You Know They Listen Yo You?

How Do You Explain To Restaurants That You Have Food Allergies And How Do You Know They Listen Yo You?

How do you explain to restaurants that you have food allergies and how do you know they listen yo you? I have a selected few restaurants I go to, and when I have to go to a new one I feel like my life is in danger...which it technically is (hehe) seeing as my anaphalaxis has reached a point where I have an epipen with me at all times, and even then I do not have long to get to a doctor...just wondering how everyone else copes with restaurants and take away places...

Finding A Job With Allergies?

Finding A Job With Allergies?

[Hello! This has been a wonderful place to lurk in the past couple of days. So glad to have found this site!!]

I have loads of food allergies, and many of them I will have reactions to just being in the same room with them. So on top of the added stress to being out in public or eating out, is the stress of finding a job. Both my mother and sister have held a few local jobs here, and all of them have had break rooms where people brought in major allergens. One of them was a Kmart, where… read more

What Medical Diagnosis Catagory Do I Fall Into?

What Medical Diagnosis Catagory Do I Fall Into?

I have been sick for early 12 years. I have so many food intolerances including gluten, sugar alcohols, and even intolerances to facial creams, sunscreens, and just about every topical lotions that absorb into my skin. Recently I purchased a L’Oreal product that was gluten-free and fragrance free but I still broke out in hives and a burning rash. My primary care placed me on prednisone. What in the world is going on with my body? The 25+ doctors over the years have no idea. I’m beyond… read more

Anyone Watched Rotten Episode 2 On Netflicks On Allergies?

Anyone Watched Rotten Episode 2 On Netflicks On Allergies?

What is your view on it? I wasn't too impressed as it seemed to only highlight peanut, and as milk is most common allergy didn't understand why it wasn't mentioned .
also the myth that reactions get worse over time with each reaction was a shame.

I liked the segment on the indian restaurant owner who got 6 yrs in jail for a peanut allergy death.

If you haven't seen it have a watch and let me know what you think.
