    What are the options if allergic to treenuts?

    • I’ll have to leave that one for a registered dietitian. Although I’ve looked at allergies to nuts, it’s quite hard to advise on this one as it’s a huge limitation for a person’s diet. I would assume that if you’re a vegetarian or vegan who has tree nut allergies, you may want to reconsider. Let’s see if we can get an RD to reply to this one.
