Valentine’s Day Tips

ChocZucBreadValentine’s Day can be an especially challenging holiday for those with food allergies. Fortunately, there are plenty of allergy friendly and gluten free recipes out there to make the day special for all.  Consider this delicious recipe for a chocolate zucchini bread from Monique at Ambitious Kitchen http://www.ambitiouskitchen.com/2016/08/healthy-double-chocolate-zucchini-bread-nut-free-vegan-gluten-free/ that is not only gluten free and allergy friendly, but vegan too! This would be perfect for an indulgent breakfast or snack – what better day than Valentine’s Day to have chocolate at every meal?  

In addition, our friends at FAACT (Food Allergy Anaphylaxis Connection Team) provide some great tips and ideas for celebrating this special day at http://www.foodallergyawareness.org/blog/entry/allergy- awarenessfriendly_ways_for_celebrating_valentine%E2%80%99s_day-84/.  FAACT is a fantastic non-profit organization dedicated to promoting awareness, advocacy and education for the food allergic community.  

Wishing you all a very safe and happy Valentine’s Day!
