Welcome MamaDee - I'm also in a suburb of Atlanta (Marietta) and have a daughter with allergies to sunflower (as well as soy and tree nuts) plus two kids with other allergies.  The irony is not lost on me that she is allergic to the alternative product so many use for peanut and tree nut allergies or that many of the allergy safe alternatives such as Enjoy Life are unsafe for her.

I highly recommend Seidu or Rezvani who seem to be the two allergists in our area that understand food allergies.

Last night we had spinach enchiladas. When DH makes enchiladas, he makes his own salsa verse. I use bottled. DH cooked, so we had a really yummy salsa verde on the enchiladas. 2.5 WW points each!

And we used the Kuners black beans (not refried) with jalapeños. OMG they are simply amazing.

Anyone notice any correlation between acne and allergies? I do not mean the occasional blemish but chronic deep acne flare-ups.

How about any correlation between acne and reflux/heartburn?

Heartburn is food related, not stress related

I did not use a recipe, but, it’s called “crack slaw” on lots of low carb blogs.  I used a 20 oz pack of ground turkey, generously seasoned with ginger and garlic, some soy sauce and rice wine vinegar.  I actually made the sauce with 1/3c low sodium soy sauce, a splash of the vinegar, a few cloves crushed garlic, and maybe 1-2t of ground ginger, and about a T of sweetener(sugar, brown sugar, I used Swerve, which is erithritol).  So, I used about half of that as I sautéed the turkey with some diced onions. I pulled out the turkey, and reduced juices, then added cabbage(2 bags shredded slaw), and the rest of the sauce.  Cook to desired tenderness, add back turkey, a bunch of diced green onion, and some toasted sesame oil.  We ate it straight up, but, this could be done as lettuce wraps, or with some rice.  You could sweeten it up with hoisen sauce,  or add heat with red pepper. 

If you google crack slaw you’ll get ideas for flavors.

Thanks. I'm not a fan of regular cabbage, but will eat nappa cabbage or bok choy or something like that. So I'd sub in one of those.

Napa would totally work.  I’ve used it before for a similar thing.
