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: Spreading Food Allergy Awareness One Teal Pumpkin at a Time

What are some other ways people deal with Halloween? I don't think this teal thing should stop by any means, but I am having a hard time seeing it as a widely accepted solution. I have a peanut/treenut allergic kid and I have very mixed emotions... On the one hand, I like the added awareness, but on the other hand... I think this might be expecting too much . In our town, some neighborhoods get hundreds of kids and per item non-food stuff can get expensive. Plus, I really don't want my...

Hi RW! Some people keep the cost down by ordering bulk non-food treats online, or by giving kids a choice and asking, especially if the parents are nearby. Have you also seen this year's post on craft ideas ... You could also bake a fun safe-for-you cake . My preteen just likes being with his friends, for the most part. I like the idea of donating extra candy to volunteers in your town. Some dentists have always collected it in exchange for something...

Celebrating Teal Pumpkins Across the U.S.

Kids With Food Allergies ·
In 2012, when a five-year-old boy with food allergies took a pumpkin and painted it teal, he had no clue he was starting a Halloween trend. Not only did he paint a teal pumpkin, he put out some non-food treats too. His mom, Becky Basalone, a leader of FACET (Food Allergy Community of East Tennessee), thought this was a great idea. This way, children with food allergies would have something for their treat bag. Other support groups loved the idea, since teal is the color of food allergy...
