With food allergies on the rise, the odds are high that you will date someone with a food allergy at some point. Life’s challenges, including dietary ones, foster admirable character traits, such as empathy, kindness and a desire to help others.
Here are a few things you should know in terms of “allergy etiquette” so you can impress that special lady or gentleman by showing you care and having food set the mood! Take the time to understand what your date can and can’t eat, and where they like to dine out.
Think of this as alternative dating: preparedness is paramount, and caution is essential.

Whether it be friendships, family members, or a loved one.
With so many different scenarios that are now harder after being gluten-free, wouldn't it be nice to get a little help?
