Need an allergen-friendly protein bar?

You are in the right place!   Check out our reviews and lists of allergen-friendly protein bars and other foods to find a snack that fits you.

Hi there and welcome!


This site is an effort to find and share ideas for ready-made snacks and such for people with food sensitivities, allergies, or intolerances. There are lots of recipes out there, but what about when you need protein bars, bread, pasta, and other things that are just a whole lot easier to buy than make?


That's what I'd like to share with you as I find things that work for me and my family.  Some of us are "simply" gluten-free, others have various combinations of intolerances -- we avoid sugar, dairy, eggs, corn, soy, flax, and other things.


As we find things that work for us, I'll post them so you can enjoy too!


Check the blog for reviews, lists of our top choices of various kinds of things, recipes, cookbook recommendations, and whatever else occurs to us.  You can also check out our (what-will-be-gigantic-someday) list of allergen free protein bars.


Thanks for dropping in!
