Welcome to nut_free_meg!
I'm a 23 year old living at home in Staten Island but gallivanting around NYC and Brooklyn whenever I get the chance.
I was inspired to start this blog after a date where the hunt for dessert led to a late night hospital visit. You see... I have a severe tree nut allergy (anaphylaxis) not to mention I was unprepared for this situation (AKA, forgot my EpiPen).
I wanted to create this blog and fill it with healthy vegetarian recipes that incorporate GF and DF ingredients that are tree nut free. I also wanted to share some of my favorite places to eat out in NYC sans anxiety from cross contamination.
Now for some fun facts-
1. Allergic to all tree nuts, but NOT allergic to peanuts... weird I know.
2. Favorite color = pink
3. Used to play soccer in college, now enjoys power walking and "vigorous" stretching, sometimes yoga.
4. I have a cat that I rescued although I'm very much a dog person.
5. I'm under 5 ft (4'11" and 3/4") but you know what they say, "big things come in small packages."
