Allergies are so scary, recently in my son's school a girl with a peanut allergy got very sick from eating an apple pie, apparently the family that brought in the pie also made some peanut butter cookies the same night and there must have been some cross contamination. Point is, with allergies sometimes it is impossible to know what food is safe.

when will whole foods offer products like BREAD for nut allergy people??? Their pizzas and breads are all processed with no good separation practices. Gluten free is a whole section, nut free you are in DANGER at WHOLE FOODS!!! IF Whole Foods CARED about health, they would offer nut free options. Look at their fish counter, nuts are all over the place, same with the deli. PLEASE GET A CLUE!

Great ideas Rebecca. I am so glad that you are creating awareness on this topic and providing suggestions. I am a therapist and life-coach specializing in helping people cope with the stress and anxiety of food allergies. I also recommend creating new holiday traditions that are not food related, just of pumpkin carving, decorating the home, board games. For Thanksgiving, go around the table and name one thing you are thankful for. You and also visit my site for more coping strategies www.centerforhealthyandhappyliving.com

I have just ordered your turkey dinner for our x-mas eve dinner. I have a granddaughter that has celiac disease and need to find a gravy substitute that is gluten free. Do you have anything ready-made, packaged or a simple tasty gluten-free recipe for gravy? Also, besides gravy and stuffing, are there any other dishes, excluding deserts, that may contain gluten? I ordered mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and green beans. Thanks
