Living with multiple life-threatening food allergies and a handful of sensitivities makes treats a little tricky. I think it’s impossible to live life without a small dessert every once in a while. I would NEVER treat myself to something that said “may contain nuts” or “may contain soy”, NEVER. To me my life threatening allergies create a very black and white type of scenario. It’s either I CAN eat it, or I CAN’T. With dairy as an intolerance, I do give in to chocolate every once in a while, however am a starting to realize that my body really can’t tolerate it. Dairy creates a bit of a grey scenario for me, where it’s all about judgement… If I eat too much chocolate, like I did on valentines day… Then the following day I am extremely ill. And I vow I won’t eat chocolate again. However avoiding chocolate is so hard for me, so I’ve made a mental note and the next time I go for chocolate, it’ll be dark, so I am ingesting less dairy AND it’ll only be one piece. NO more than that.
