Food Allergies: 5 Tips for Navigating Summer BBQs
1. Get tested and talk with your allergist beforehand so you know what you can and cannot handle.
2. Look for hints that you might not be able to eat or drink something, like color, texture, or ingredients.
3. When in doubt, pack a safe snack to nibble on if you get desperate.
4. Stick with the basics that you have consumed historically without a problem, like protein, fruit, and veggies.
5. Don’t be afraid to say a polite “no thank you” when offered a treat you just can’t stomach.
