Having a child with an anaphylactic food allergy is never easy and almost always scary. Between most of the world not "getting it" and the minute to minute fear of an allergic reaction- us food allergy parents are on guard- ALWAYS!
Being the parent of a child with an anaphylactic food allergy requires creativity, spontaneity, and the ability to turn on a dime. "Special" food allergy meals aren't always fun or exciting- the meals are "special" mainly and most importantly because they are safe- free from cross contamination. Many times when the "special" allergy meal is served at a restaurant, it comes after everyone else has already eaten. Causing almost everyone at the table to feel awkward or badly for the allergy person. Beggars can't be choosers and honestly I don't even know why restaurants agree to make "safe" and "special" meals- the risk of cross contamination is so high in a busy restaurant. We are beyond appreciative for the dozens (maybe hundred's?) of safe meals provided for our son throughout the years. Crepes are the one of the foods I can not find gluten free and safe in a restaurant. This next recipe is for the creative and resourceful food allergy parent- because we gotta do what we gotta do.
