Valentine’s day is about giving and showing your love and affection towards that special person in your life. To the food allergic date, this day is very much like any other special day or holiday when we need to step up ou game. We need to be more conscious about our allergies, especially when chocolates and other various candy are given out, perhaps in school or amongst friends.
This is my second Valentine’s day with someone special in my life and I am not the least bit worried because we stay away from the chocolates and candies. Instead, we will have a nice dinner, perhaps by candlelight and an evening together. And I have a hunch I’ll be getting roses…
What will you be doing? Will you be going out or staying in? If you are going out, stay alert. Remember that you can be as safe as you want, however your date will need to be the same if a Valentine’s day kiss is in the evening plan. That’s why I say a nice evening in with safe food makes this day even more special. In my mind, the only thing nicer than a dinner for two at home is a dinner for two In a fancy suite in Paris.
If your friends are handing out cinnamon hearts and chocolate at school and you are not so sure about the ingredients, just say “thanks but no thanks” and grab yourself a few chocolates on your way home!
