Finding New Foods

Devolving food sensitivities later on in life has forced me to change my diet completely. If you haven’t read my story about my food sensitivities (read my story here: https://goo.gl/bmvT2a), let me tell you a little bit about my situation. In 2016, I started having problems with foods and discovered that the problem is rapeseed/rapeseed oil, which is also known as canola oil, and rapeseed is also in soy lecithin, which is in most breads and chocolates. That’s when I had to switch to more natural, organic, and allergy-friendly foods.
Looking for new foods I can eat has been challenging and …

Non-traditional Candy

In light of Halloween yesterday, this post is about some of my favorite non-traditional candy and chocolate. Although I do like my Snickers, Reese’s, Skittles, and Milky Way, I also enjoy confections that you don’t find in everyday convenient and grocery stores in the U.S.
I recently discovered a couple gourmet food stores in Boston: Bacco’s and Gourmet Boutique. Both shops sell typical gourmet foods such as wine, cheese, and charcuterie, but they also have a selection of imported sweets that are hard to find.
At Bacco’s, they sell Hammond’s chocolate bars in a variety of unique flavors such as red velvet …
