PLEASE DON'T PASS THE NUTS is 1 year old TODAY!
What a year it has been.
You may not know this, but my idea for this blog started as an experiment, a Ghandi thing: “Be the change you want to see in the world".
I didn't see much out there about how adults with allergies and asthma were dealing with life, especially how they were eating out and where they were going for great food that was allergen-friendly.
So I created this space:
I’ve reviewed restos like Brasserie and Otto Enotecca Pizzeria that have been able to take care of my needs successfully and deliciously so that you know you can enjoy these chefs and managers and servers who really care about feeding people safely and graciously.
I’ve interviewed chefs like Mark Zeitouni and Michael Lomonaco who really get it: how to feed everyone, whether you can eat anything or you have a limited/restricted diet.
I’ve gone to food shows like the SOBE Food Fest to see what’s new and coming up for the growing allergy community and am so heartened to see more and more foods being created for us!
I’ve posted about my cultural and travel escapades because to me that’s part of the whole asthma/allergies-aren’t-going-to-stop-me thing: you gotta leave the house, good stuff happens out there.
And I’ve found so many of you, or you’ve found me, that daily I smile and shake my head in absolute amazement and thankfulness for this community building we’re doing together: sharing recipes, encouragement, support, restaurants reviews, awareness, traveling stories, product reviews, health information, drug trials, laughter and understanding.
Thank you all for reading-I've got big plans for year 2, stay tuned!
