Default Helping a vegetarian friend

What a week!

I have this young friend, who although she is not underweight, she is not eatign healthy at all. Her mother told me that she was admitted to hospital and they discovered low iron.

She is vegetarian and decided to go gluten free as well. She created a problem for me, because under doctor's orders she is nibbling on nuts constantly.

My friends cannot be nibbling on nuts in my presence or it could hospitalize me. I break out in hives with contact of surfaces touched by others who have been touching nuts. I pass out if nuts are open in the room I am in for more than half an hour. We don't want me to eat a nut.

Anyway, I was able to provide her with a few gluten free products that also happen to be vegan and nut free. I am going to go shopping later to see if I can find her a few other things. Her town is farther out of the city than mine, so they don't have the health stores available.
