Nate and I love traveling! Before I went gluten, dairy and soy free, Nate and I would just ask the locals where to eat. When I went on the Strange Diet, I knew traveling was not going to be the same, in fact I cannot tell you how many times we asked a local if they knew any safe food allergy restaurants nearby and their response was one of the following: “Is gluten the thing in bread;” “Are eggs from a cow;” “What’s soy?” Those who have food allergies or those who travel with someone who has food allergies know that it can be a headache finding something everyone will enjoy. When planning my upcoming trip to NYC I crossed paths with the team at AllergyEats and a friendship was born.
AllergyEats makes finding local restaurants or restaurants away from home a breeze! When you log in to the app or website you will be greeted by the homepage that allows you to choose a location and select which allergies you have so you can find the places that are most accommodating to your food restrictions. AllergyEats also has the option to create a profile so not only will it remember your food allergies, but you can provide feedback for different restaurants. When we work together we all benefit!
I love using the app while I’m on the road and away from my usual go-to safe restaurants. AllergyEats even has dining guides for NYC and Walt Disney World! Along with an amazing blog and a section for helpful dining tips, this site truly has it all. If you’re new to the food allergy world, or traveling with someone who has food allergies, I highly recommend checking out Questions to Ask When Dining Out with Food Allergies on the AllergyEats website. This is a great tool for anyone who has food restrictions or someone who is wanting to better understand what to ask when eating out with someone who has food allergies.
Not only is it exciting to be collaborating with an innovative, well renowned company, but this week is Food Allergy Awareness Week. What a fitting time to make this announcement. Food allergies don’t just affect kids, but adults too. Whether you have Celiac Disease, you’re eliminating foods because you have Hashimoto’s Disease or you have been allergic to milk since day one, we all deserve to eat at nice restaurants with a fun vibe. I think we can all agree it’s not fun going to a restaurant and the only safe thing to eat is just a bowl of lettuce with no dressings or croutons. Been there, done that; so just trust me and download the AllergyEats app!
With their mission that, “We’re all in this together,” and my mission of “Looking at the Sunny Side of Life,” together we can make an even bigger impact and add more sunshine to the world of food allergy awareness. Thank you AllergyEats for your support of my blog. It’s an honor to be collaborating with you.
As you all know I have some really exciting trips coming up and I’m taking my new friend, AllergyEats on the road with me. The team and I have some exciting things in store for you all. Stay tuned because this collaboration will be a fun adventure. Next stop, New York City!
