“I hope with the ease of the Instant Pot® plus my allergy-friendly recipes, you can once again look forward to making dinner,” Rachel writes in the introduction. “You can feel comfortable inviting company over for dinner because you can be proud of your allergy-free dishes. You can stop feeling as though you’re stuck in a continual rotation of boring food.”

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology lists these foods as the most common triggers of allergies/intolerances: cow’s milk, eggs, fish, peanuts, shellfish, soy, tree nuts and wheat. All of the recipes in AN ALLERGY MOM’S LIFESAVING INSTANT POT® COOKBOOK have been developed to avoid these eight allergens without sacrificing the food you love. You’ll find familiar favorites like Honey Garlic Chicken & Broccoli, Chile-Lime Chicken Tacos, Bread Crumb- & Egg-Free Italian Meatballs & Spaghetti, and Vegan, Nut- & Gluten-Free Mac’n’Cheese, all delicious, safe-to-eat, and quickly made via Instant Pot®.

The Date Lady

We all know about dates. We know many grow in Israel. Dates play parts in many Jewish holidays and celebrations. Dates are a “trendy” food now on both cooking and baking. Meet The Date Lady.

According to The Date Lady, Ancient Mesopotamian texts describe dates as one of the primary sweeteners of that time. In the Bible, the word “honey” can be translated from the Hebrew to describe a fruit honey, rather than the honey from a bee, and is commonly referred to as “date honey” in commentaries. Considering the profound quantity of date palms in that area, it is very likely this was indeed referring to honey from the date, or, date syrup. Although date syrup has been around for thousands of years in other parts of the world, the United States has just recently seen increased interest. Date Lady offers the most delicious assortment of products to please both the date lover or most discerning foodie including organic California dates, date sugar, chocolate spread & coconut caramel sauce sweetened only with… you guessed it, dates!

All of the products are Non-GMO, Gluten Free and Kosher!

Benefits of eating Dates:  
- Dates are a fruit rich in dietary potassium, fiber, iron and magnesium
- Dates contain a wide range of trace elements like boron, cobalt, copper, fluorine, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc! 
- Dates have more potassium ounce for ounce than a banana 
- Dates are an excellent source of energy, and are great for pre or post workout.
- Read about date syrup and how it has more antibacterial properties than honey.
