I am very picky about the products I choose to review – I only review products that are appropriate for a food allergy audience and that I think you will love. When Safe & Happy Family asked me if I’d like a sample of one of their food allergy plates to review I was skeptical until I checked out their website. I immediately fell in love with the idea and the designs, and I think you will too!
Disclosure: Safe & Happy Family sent me a plate to review and they are giving one away to a reader here.
Before I transformed my meals to be completely allergen-free, I had to contend with the “separate plate” phenomenon – making sure that the one dish that must be allergen-free was indeed safe. It never occurred to me to use a different plate (a concept that leading food allergy chain restaurants are embracing) – perhaps that was because I didn’t have one of these beauties:
If you are preparing separate meals, I always recommend preparing the food allergy plate first. But I know I’ve had occasions where I had four plates on the counter and then completely forgot which one had the casserole prepared without dairy… it’s easy to do. That’s just one of the reasons I love these plates.
These 10-inch plates are just the right size for any meal. (Some designs also come in a smaller 8-inch size and sets are available too!) They wash beautifully and are dishwasher safe (I know, there’s new research that says those who don’t use the dishwasher may have fewer allergies, but we already have allergies and the dishwasher can sanitize). They are BPA-free. (They can’t be used in a microwave.)
The designs are beautiful. I love the use of our favorite food-allergy teal color across the patterns. I chose the “retro green” for my review, but here are a few others you might like:
I made pancakes from The Allergy-Free Pantry with blackberry maple syrup topping.
To make the syrup: mash 5-6 blackberries in a small saucepan, add ½ cup maple syrup and warm it up.
