Study: Propofol Use in Children with Food Allergies

Just sharing study results fom the Journal of Anaesthesia showing that there is no correlation between emulsified propofol and children with food allergies. There was speculation that propofol for medical procedures may not be safe for children with food allergies, but after a 10 year study, the evidence shows that is not the case.

For the full study, click here – there is a link to the Journal.

How to be Nutfree, Travel

Nourished Festival is Coming!

If you or a friend or family member have food allergies, consider attending the upcoming Nourished Festival.

Nourished Festival, formerly GFAF (Gluten Free Allergy Friendly), is coming to the (Chicagoland area) Schaumburg Convention Center on June 1 and 2, 2019. Their name change is a reflection of the focus on multiple specialty diets; Gluten Free, Nut Free, Keto, Paleo, and Plant Based. We are primarily focused on the nut free information and we have already picked out a few classes we will be attending. Learning about other specialty diets will be fun too – the more we know the better we can be. Understanding other specialty diets helps us plan better at work and school when sharing a snack or meal happens, think Holidays and Birthdays!

  1. Understanding the Gut-Brain Connection
  2. Breaking the Cycle of Stress and Axiety

These are two sessions that we can’t WAIT to attend! And we would love for you to join us. If you need tickets – pop over to Instagram @nutfreemomblog and send us a DM.

Perfect Corn on the Cob

A few days ago, the kids really wanted some corn on the cob. It is not corn season, but who am I to say “no” to kids wanting to eat healthy food?! So corn it is!

Since I’m not a griller, I needed to find a quick, weeknight friendly recipe to whip up this corn on the cob.

Simple Genius had the perfect recipe. Typically we grill corn on the cob, but roasting it in the oven provided to be even tastier and juicier than usual.

Ingredients:

  • Aluminum foil
  • rimmed baking sheet
  • 4 ears of corn, husks and silks removed
  • butter
  • sea salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 450*
  2.  Prepare corn by taking off the husks, rinse them and dry them off.
  3. Tear off a sheet of foil that will allow you to wrap the corn into a cute little house. Put 1 tbsp of butter and sprinkle of salt into the foil wrap and crimp shut.
  4. Repeat this for all of your corn cobs
  5. Put the onto the lined baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Enjoy!

This is our new favorite way to make corn! Just in time for the long holiday weekend. Enjoy your time with family and friends. If you’re out and about + need a sweet treat, don’t forget that Dairy Queen will try very hard to accommodate your nut allergies. Our local DQ takes proper precautions when Chloe orders her ice ceam cone “and I also have nut allergies” and we’re good to go each time. Cheers!
