This time next week, we will all be gathered around the dinner table ready to tuck into an Easter feast. Or perhaps you’ll be curled up on the sofa, watching a movie with armfuls of chocolate eggs to indulge in? Whatever way you celebrate the weekend, there will most likely be food involved, and it can be difficult to enjoy an occasion such as Easter when you know you have an intolerance.
Thankfully for you, here at Test Your Intolerance, we’ve curated some top tips for ways in which you can enjoy your Easter festivities without the worry:
Identify your intolerances
We can’t stress enough how important it is to identify your food intolerances. People often ‘self-diagnose’ and avoid certain food groups thinking that they have an intolerance to those items, however it is most likely not the case. Our tests will help identify exactly which items you’re intolerant to so that you don’t have to avoid entire food groups, and you can start to begin an elimination diet to monitor your symptoms.
Thankfully, as intolerances become less of a ‘taboo’ subject, our supermarkets are stocking up with dairy-free, gluten-free and lactose-free alternatives to our favourite foods – so you can still enjoy your chocolate eggs even with a dairy intolerance!
Tell your friends and family
If you’re dining out with friends and family over Easter, make them aware of your intolerances before they prepare the food. It would be a shame if you turned up to their house to find that you couldn’t eat the dinner they had prepared – if you give them enough notice, or even offer to take your own food, then you can still enjoy the festivities.
