Grocery shopping in general can be a little stressful. Add to it the need to look for allergy friendly and or specialty diet foods, and it can make you just want to stay at home.
Though actually staying at home isn’t all that bad. I’ve learned that I can find the best deals AND find all the allergy friendly foods I need right on my laptop. With just a few clicks, I can have all my favorite foods delivered right to my door and I love it!
The Top 8 Allergens That Cause a Ruckus
OK. Maybe they don’t actually cause a ruckus, but these 8 allergens account for 90% of all food-related reactions.
- Tree nuts
Ruckus or not, having one or more of these allergies can make shopping for food items extremely difficult. I’ve learned the hard way, that things like milk and eggs can hide in a lot of different foods. And when you first start shopping after finding you have an allergy, it can be very overwhelming trying to find foods that you can eat.
Taking It From The Local Store To Online
I’ve posted quite a few times, both here on my blog and on my other social media channels like Instagram and YouTube, about how much I love shopping on Vitacost.com.
Their Specialty Diet Shop is my one stop shop for all my foodie needs. With quick links dedicated to certain dietary restrictions and preferences, finding what you need to fill your pantry is quick and easy.
Brownie Mixes & So Much More
Vitacost recently sent me a box full of all different kinds of allergy friendly products to check out. Some of them like Enjoy Life Foods and Namaste Foods I had heard about, but others like Tempt Hemp Milk and New Pop were new to me.
On Mother’s Day, my daughters decided to make dinner for me. For dessert, my oldest took it upon herself to try out the Enjoy Life Brownie Mix. I was quickly told that I had to stay out of the kitchen.. to sit and relax.. but I was allowed to snap some pictures of the brownie preparations to share with you all.
The brownie mix only contained a few ingredients and was easy to mix.. so I was told.
Foil wasn’t part of the directions, but it does make for a very easy clean up.
And with some time well spent in the oven, we were treated to some amazingly delicious and allergy friendly brownies! (With the addition of some non-dairy ice-cream)
