Nut allergies have a high risk of progressing to anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction. Many people have a cross-reactivity to the similar proteins in all tree nuts: almonds, walnuts, pecans, cashews, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, chestnuts, pine nuts, Macadamia nuts and pistachio nuts.
Cashews are the second most common nut allergy. Cashews are closely related to pistachio nuts, mango and poison ivy allergies.

Change is hard. Not impossible though. I am gearing up to clean up the kitchen and our meals. I need to. How many years of "needing to"? Maybe 3 years of conscious awareness of needing to, and at least 20 of carefree indulgence and reckless consumption (and stress).

Or my husband will come home with chocolate cake or boba…Continue
Hi there. This is my first post to a community blog (ever!) so forgive me if I don't get this quite right the first few times.
Re the 10 pm bedtime club invite, I am so in! I am delighted to know there are others out there who head to bed by 10 or maybe even earlier sometimes. Over the past few months, with some significant changes in my life, I have had the opportunity to let my body recover from about 2 and a half years of incredibly stressful work.
