3. Ask For Alternatives
So, once you’ve asked your restaurant or store which dishes contain the allergens that you should be avoiding, whether this allergen happens to be egg, milk or peanuts – which are some of the most common food allergies around – then what’s left to do? Most restaurants already list the dishes that contain common allergens in their menu, and as we’ve just told you if you’re not sure then you should ask the restaurant’s waiter, chef, or manager what’s safe for you on the menu.
If you are for example allergic to gluten, then many pizza restaurants do offer a gluten-free base as an alternative as long as you ask for it. If you’re going out to a restaurant, these days you should even be able to find this information on their website – or if it’s not available there then you can call the restaurant ahead and find out before you go there yourself.
