SunButter Apple Cider (Dairy, Egg, Soy, Gluten, Peanut, & Tree Nut Free; Vegan)


It’s fall ya’ll, and pumpkins and apples are in abundance!  Everyone is screaming “Pumpkin Spice!”, but Superman has a pumpkin allergy, so we’re enjoying apple cider and other fall yummies.  I was really craving apple cider last weekend, and I broke down and bought some.  One of my friends told me to top my cider with mini marshmallows, and well….she’s genius!  It was so good!

If you have been following me long at all, you know I’m a huge fan of SunButter and I try to incorporate it into pretty much anything I can.  I love SunButter with apple slices, so why not mix it with apple cider?!  With a hint of vanilla and a dash of cinnamon, you’re sure to enjoy this hot apple cider blended with SunButter in your favorite mug.  It’s naturally an allergy-friendly beverage that is dairy free, egg free, peanut free, tree nut free, soy free, and gluten free!

First Fresh Chicken Sausage Review: Gluten-Free and Allergy-Friendly


I’m so excited to share with you another allergy-friendly product that is absolutely delicious….and healthier!

Last night I added these dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free First Fresh Chicken Sausage to our breakfast-for-dinner menu.  I paired it with baked apples and biscuits, and it was the perfect combination.

First Fresh Sausage Review~Gluten-Free & Allergy-Friendy~Mom Vs. Food Allergy

I cooked these breakfast sausages in a skillet, and I was happy with how easily they browned and cooked quickly.  The aroma from the sausages that filled the kitchen was so good, and I couldn’t wait to dig in!  In a separate skillet I was making my hubby the Hot Italian Sausages, and they smelled just as yummy.  Since they’re chicken sausages, there was so little fat (if any) in the pan, which is a good thing (because it’s not camping out on my hips after I eat them-ha!).  However, I did add a little oil to the Hot Italian Sausages because they started to stick to the pan, but it was not a non-stick skillet.

So, what did we think?  We loved them!  Well, the adults loved them.  We think that the breakfast sausages were a bit on the peppery side, making it a no-go for my 4-year old.  My 7-year old dipped them in syrup to off-set the spicy flavor.  They have a Maple Chicken Sausage, that I think my kiddos might like a little better.  I’m so happy that they are peanut-free, tree nut-free, dairy-free and egg-free, making it safe for Superman!

Overall, they were a hit and I would definitely work them into our weekly menu again.  My husband had the Hot Italian Sausages, and he thought they were delicious, but only a mildly hot sausage.  To give you an idea of why he gave it a mild rating, he likes to coat things in hot Sriracha sauce, and appreciates spicy foods.  If you’re like me, you may prefer their Mild Italian Sausage.

To take a look at their allergen statement, check here.  It gives you a good idea of their sensitivity to food allergies.  I felt really comfortable with this statement, but keep in mind that many of their sausage products contain dairy and I believe some other products (not sausages) contain egg.  For specific allergy concerns and questions, contact the company here.
