Tree Nut Allergies: “An estimated 1.8 million Americans have an allergy to tree nuts.  Allergic reactions to tree nuts are among the leading causes of fatal and near-fatal reactions to foods. Tree nuts include, but are not limited to, walnut, almond, hazelnut, coconut, cashew, pistachio, and Brazil nuts. These are not to be confused or grouped together with peanut, which is a legume, or seeds, such as sunflower or sesame.  Like those with peanut allergies, most individuals who are diagnosed with an allergy to tree nuts tend to have a lifelong allergy. As you’ll see below, tree nuts can be found as ingredients in many unexpected places.”

In any raw recipes with nuts feel free to substitute any of your favorite seeds.

Nuts can also be easily replaced in many recipes with:

  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Any root vegetable
  • Mushrooms

Thank you so much for the raw pizza recipe. I have been raw for almost 18 months but was having a serious pizza craving. I found this recipe 2 weeks ago and have been enjoying it ever since. It is absolutely the best raw food recipe I have ever made. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Also, I have made crackers with the recipe for the pizza crust.


Replace nuts with seeds or extra veggies and never be nutty again!

Delicious seed ideas….

  • Instead of cashews in Dreamy Alfredo use soaked sunflower seeds and tahini (seseme seed butter)
