I was lucky enough to speak with the founder of Allergy Amulet, Abi Barnes, a lifelong food allergy sufferer who dreamt of creating a fast and portable food allergen detection device which would allow individuals to feel safer about the foods they eat.
When I talk about food allergies to others, a question that comes up again and again is if there’s a cure for food allergies. Sadly, there currently isn’t a cure, however I was excited to learn about the non-profit E.A.T. (End Allergies Together), which is the only independent organization solely focused on raising money for a cure. 100% of their focus is on raising money for food allergy research.
There’s more to baking than gluten. During my trip to the United Kingdom last month I was lucky enough to visit Beyond Bread, which I’d heard was the spot to find the best gluten-free treats in London.
If there’s one thing this world needs, it’s more nut-free bakeries. While I’d like them to be gluten-free and nut-free, I have more than enough gluten-free spots to pick from and want my husband to feel the joy of being able to select any item from a bakery display case and feel the security of knowing that it’s 100% safe for him to eat. If only we lived in Canada! Sullivan & Bleeker Baking Co. in Toronto, Canada is 100% nut-free bakery that offers homemade candy, cookies, cupcakes, and jarcakes.
Cinnamon raisin, everything, plain, blueberry, onion, french toast, rainbow bagel. I love them all. There’s nothing better than a Sunday morning with coffee, newspaper, and a toasted everything bagel topped with onions, capers, and lox. That is, unless you’re subjected to eating a gluten-less bagel, which for the most part are bad. Really, really bad. Until Sweet Note Bakery came along.
