I’m Juliet, a 21-year-old college student born, raised, and currently living in NYC. I’m allergic to tree nuts. I like taking photos, and I like keeping lists. And, you know, I really like to eat. Hence the blog.
I put this site together for a whole bunch of reasons, but the main one was that I was incredibly frustrated with the fact that I couldn’t find a resource quite like it. There are plenty of blogs about food allergies, but most are written by (and from the distinct perspective of) the mothers of food-allergic children, and hardly any focus on dining out. But I didn’t want to read about Mylan’s latest move, or about how to make nut-free granola, or about where to take a kid for lunch. Plain and simple, I wanted to read about how other nut-allergic adults (or, as in my case, adultoids) go about partaking in this city’s food scene—because I know they aren’t all sitting it out.
Honestly, I’ve grown up with so much Internet that the prospect of not being able to find the information I wanted online actually sort of floored me. But I’d searched, and it just wasn’t out there. Which was why I decided to be the blog I want to see in the world—and now I spend my time here, on this strange corner of the Internet, going on and on (and on, Jesus Christ) about all the nut-free food I can get my hands on.
So. What you’ll find here are posts about the restaurants I eat at, along with the occasional review of a nut-free product or company I’ve come across. Sometimes I do lists. Sometimes I do guides. Mostly, though, I just rant and rave.
My hope is that it’s helpful.
