I have a food sensitivity. My stomach can’t tolerant certain foods. Peanut butter was one of my favorite snacks when I was a child. Now when I try eating a snack with peanuts I get stomach cramps.
Thank goodness I don’t have a food allergy. Symptoms of a food allergy can range from a rash to shortness of breath and anaphylaxis. If you know anything about having a food allergy the slightest contact can trigger a reaction hours after someone close to you has eaten the targeted food. The top eight foods children are allergic to are: peanuts, treenuts, milk, eggs, wheat, and soy.
Since I don’t have a food allergy I’m able to eat almond butter without getting stomach cramps. Almond butter is packed with nutrition.
