Hello 👋 everyone and welcome back from Thanksgiving break! We hope you had a wonderful holiday. . We’re jumping back into the week with a Dish With a Dietitian question for @taramccarthyrd from one of our awesome followers! . Here’s the question: . Hi Tara! This time of year is tough when you have kids in the house! We've already had three viruses sweep through our home this fall and it's only November. What are some great immune-boosting foods you recommend to clients that are also allergen-free? Thanks! . Tara’s response: . Tis the season for colds and viruses! My advice is not to look for specific foods necessarily, but to look at the overall diet of your child. . If the diet involves more processed food than not then try and put more whole foods in the diet that have antioxidant properties, such as fruits and vegetables. . For instance, if breakfast typically involves cereal and frozen waffles, maybe try some oatmeal with ground flax seed (they wont even know it’s in there and it is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids)! 🤫 . Homemade chicken soup (great for this time of year)! with extra vegetables is a good option, and you can substitute rice or #glutenfree pasta if needed. . I also recommend we all supplement with Vitamin D this season (if you live in a place where the sun is minimal or it’s too cold to be exposed for the sun). . Thanks, Tara! . . . . . #dishwithadietitian #registereddietitian #nutritionist #healthydiet #sickseason #coldandfluseason #healthyfood #allergyamulet #amuletapproved #dietitian #registereddietitiannutritionist #foodallergy

Happy All Hallow’s Eve everyone! 🎃 . We’re coming to you today with a Dish With a Dietitian Q & A that’s very appropriate for Halloween night! . Corn 🌽 may not be a #top8foodallergy but it’s pretty darn close. And it hides in lots of foods (think corn syrup in those darling little candy corn treats)! . Thanks to our friend @taramccarthyrd for sharing her #dietitian expertise on this topic. . Question: Hi, Tara! I have a corn allergy and am finding it hard to appropriately communicate the severity of my allergy to others since it's not one of the "high profile" allergies like nuts, and corn hides in everything (high fructose corn syrup for example)! I live in constant fear when eating out or eating something where I can’t check a label. Any tips? . Tara’s response: Corn allergy is a tricky one as some people can tolerate corn derivatives (such as corn syrup or maltodextrin) and some cannot! This is where you need to be your own advocate. . First, clarify with your allergist to what degree you need to avoid corn. Is it just the protein itself or all derivatives? This can be a game changer for some people. . When eating out, as with most allergies, simple and as few ingredients as possible are your best bets. I recommend staying away from mixed dishes and things with lots of sauces. Grilled proteins and/or vegetables, plain starches like quinoa, rice, or potatoes. . When possible, make a phone call before you dine to the manager, then talk with the manager at the restaurant when you arrive. You can always ask to discuss the menu with the chef. . Being proactive and planning ahead are the key elements to enjoying a meal out safely with any food allergy! . . . . . . #foodforthought #allergyamulet #amuletapproved #youarewhatyoueat #cornallergy #cornfree #foodallergies #foodallergyeducation #dishwithadietitian #nutritionist #registereddietitian #dietitiansofinstagram

This recipe for Warm Spiced Apples 🍎 is perfect for cooler temps. As usual, it can be made #top8allergenfree + #glutenfree ! Here’s what you need to know. . INGREDIENTS: . - 2 tablespoons butter or neutral oil (e.g., grapeseed oil) - 2 apples, diced, skin on into ½ inch cubes - 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger - 1 teaspoon five-spice (can sub ½ teaspoon cinnamon and ½ teaspoon nutmeg too) note: nutmeg is not a nut! - ¼ cup rum or ½ cup apple juice - To serve: favorite vanilla ice cream, Greek yogurt or slice of favorite pound cake .
