As the founder, I feel it is important to share this information. I am livin’ with a shellfish allergy and truly understand the daily challenge.
Livin’ with food allergies can be very challenging, especially eating outside the home at:
I am extremely careful while eating at restaurants that serve shellfish. I always let the server know I have a shellfish allergy. Many times, I have ordered a vegetarian plate to remain safe and request they clean the grill or pan before preparing my meal.
Thankfully, some restaurants like bd’s Mongolian Grill will prepare meals for customers “with food allergies” on a separate grill.
I will not consume casseroles, salads, dips, etc. outside my home until I find out if it they contain shellfish. I have seen lobster macaroni and cheese, crab butter, etc. at parties, so I ask every time to remain safe.
Live healthy with a Food Allergy, read “Food Labels” every time you eat or buy food. No exceptions!!
