Re: How to Make Your Own Allergy-Friendly Seed Butter to Replace Peanut Butter

Former Member ·
I have tried to make my own sunflower seed butter in my food processor, but even after a looong time in the processor and a fair amount of canola, I still get a "paste" so thick you can slice it! What am I doing wrong? Do I just need a better processor? We haven't retried pumpkin seeds yet - she got hives from it about a year ago when we first tried it. I'll probably wait until pumpkins start showing up in stores so I can get truly uncontaminated seeds. Thanks!

Re: Healthy, No-Cook Overnight Oatmeal in a Jar

Melanie Carver ·
I would opt for flax meal instead of flax seeds just to make sure that they soak in the liquid and mix through without an errant seed remaining "crunchy". Flax and chia are very similar and both can be used to make "goo" to replace eggs.

Do the Food Allergen Labeling Laws Apply to Cosmetics?

Kids With Food Allergies ·
From lip balm and shampoo to moisturizers and eye shadow, cosmetics are overseen by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Even though these products go on our lips and skin, the FDA provides a lot less oversight than you might expect. In fact, most of the time the government does not get involved until there is a problem. Here’s what you need to know. What are “cosmetics”? The government defines “cosmetics” based on how the product is meant to be used. Cosmetics are meant to be rubbed,...
