Some nuts are awesome as snacks or as part of meals, but I can’t eat any of them 🥜 ☹️ 🥜! I have had severe allergies to all tree nuts and peanuts since childhood. Eating it will cause my throat and tongue to swell, my saliva will thicken, it becomes difficult to swallow, my mouth develops a burning sensation, my lips swell up and it can even cause me to start vomiting violently due to my body’s allergic response.
Luckily, I can eat sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds (yay! 😃), but most of the seeds on the market are cross-contaminated because many companies manufacture seeds, peanuts and tree nuts all on the same machines. So cross-contamination is an issue.
This is very dangerous for people out there like me. It’s super important to be aware of cross-contamination in products or at restaurants. It’s massively important to read food labels because it can save you a trip to the hospital, save you from the intense discomfort caused by a severe allergic reaction and save your life.
Variety really is the spice of life. And, due to having such a unique food situation like mine (I’m a plant-based vegetarian who eats a mostly vegan diet who has many food allergies ✌️🌿 😄 🌿✌️), the little things in life like food options matter amongst many dietary restrictions. Thank God for Libre Naturals, because now I have another food option available to me.
