If you have food allergies, you need to avoid certain foods. Never eat the specific food you are allergic to, of course, but also make sure to avoid caffeine, sugar, and alcohol. The most allergenic foods include eggs, soy, wheat, tree nuts, peanuts, milk, and shellfish. Luckily, there are many foods you can eat!

Vegetables and fruits, along with salmon, local honey, and tea, are all excellent sources of nutrients, especially omega-3 fatty acids. You’ll start feeling better when eating to detox your body.
