      Try this for allergies: Legumes, Nightshade vegetables & fruits (potatoes, tomatoes & tomatillos, chili peppers, bell peppers, tobacco, marijuana), yeasts and anything fermented or aged (soy sauce, most cheeses, alcohols). Then there’s the stuff I can’t eat because of IBS.

        Those weren’t tips, they’re things that person is allergic to.

      Great article. I have just updated my medical alert items- metal wallet card, necklace, bracelet, tags for bags. Turns out I have a potentially life-threatening form of my allergies. I read some research about EpiPens up to 7 years old being tested and being maybe OK to use. If I find the link I will post it. Better to use a possibly not-so-strong EpiPen than to die. Each person needs to decide, of course. Several Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Emergency Plans are available. I have not researched them all, but like this one for starters because it gives how-to directions for several types of auto-injector (link below). The reason I found out that I am more allergic than I thought I was is that I made the offending item for a family member to see if they liked it and if I should stockpile it. It turns out I have a reaction to just smelling it. Plan ahead for your allergy prepping needs if you are *that* allergic. I will purchase some of the item for family but they need to cook and eat it out of my presence and only in a SHTF scenario where they would need the item that much. It is a staple protein, which is dismaying (and used to be my favorite food). https://www.foodallergy.org/living-food-allergies/food-allergy-essentials/food-allergy-anaphylaxis-emergency-care-plan
