Welcome to the May 29, 2008 edition of the Living with Food Allergies carnival! We have a great big carnival this time, with many interesting contributions. Enjoy!
Of Interest To Your Wallet
Jennifer B presents Grocery Shopping for Food Allergies with Nutrifilter posted at Food Allergy Buzz, saying, "Isn't this a great innovation? Hopefully Peapod will add the rest of the top 8 food allergens to their filters in the coming months."
Summer's Almost Here!
Leslea Harmon from allergyware.com presents Summer camp! posted at Allergy News Blog, saying, "Time to send your little darlings off to summer camp? Here are some action steps to consider, and a link to a full article on the topic."
Life with Food Allergies
Jenny presents Life Lessons for Mom from the Peanut-Free Table posted at The Nut-Free Mom, saying, "Here's some food for thought about what goes on at my daughter's peanut-free lunch table." Welcome, Jenny!
Jenny presents The Peanut Avenger!!! posted at The Nut-Free Mom, saying, "If only we food allergy parents really had superpowers! It doesn't hurt to fantasize...." Right there with you. Wish I had x-ray vision so I could see what's inside the lunches of the kids at the playground. :o)
Libby presents Allergic Reaction at School posted at The Allergic Kid. I'm so glad he's okay and it sounds like you've made some positive changes to his emergency plan. We can all learn from reading about Libby's experience.
Jenn presents Great News! at Rational Jenn, saying "My brave boy chose to undergo skin testing for tree nuts and turns out he's not allergic. I wasn't going to make him, but he decided to go for it. Now who knows where we can find peanut-free nuts (besides Blue Diamond almonds)?"
Jenn presents By The Way, Thai Food at Rational Jenn, saying "I ate peanut sauce with wild abandon the other evening--and then drove myself nuts (ha!) for the rest of the night, concerned that I hadn't washed up well enough. Now I find myself questioning whether or not it's worth the stress."
And of course, Recipes!
Alisa presents Get Your Waffle Irons Ready posted at Go Dairy Free, saying, "In honor of the first Multi-city vegan waffle party, I posted a variety of egg-free, dairy-free waffle related delicacies ... hearty, fluffy, gluten-free, whipped "cream", you name it!"
Libby presents Oatmeal Raisin Cookies posted at The Allergic Kid, saying, "These egg, dairy, and nut free cookies are chewy and delicious. No one will suspect that they are different until they ask for the recipe!"
Alisa presents Go Dairy Free | June Giveaway Mixes Baking, Gluten-Free, and Food Allergy-Friendly into Three Great Prizes posted at Go Dairy Free, saying, "It is finally posted, three gift giveaways of gluten-free essentials baking mixes, which are made in a nut-free facility."
