Hi,

I'm a new user and quite disappointed that you can't input food allergies or search for recipes or topics around these health needs. You should be able to list/check your food allergies when you first create your profile or else quite honestly I'm not going to use this site since it would take way too much time to filter through everything. It leaves me very frustrated and in the same spot as before with every other nutrition plan/diet, recipe book, etc... basically I have to change recipes through trial and error but then unless I weigh/measure everything and find out the calories and nutrition of my customized recipes I don't know if I am meeting my nutritional needs/goals. I expected much more from something endorsed by David Wolfe. By the way, among my lovely allergies are avocados, kale, and pineapples - super foods - not for me! Would love a little understanding out there for those of us fed up on a daily basis and really wanting to be healthy.

These are great suggestions. I will pass this along to our tech team to see if they can create a way to search based on food allergies and exclude certain ingredients.
Uhh, you need to know what you are allergic to and avoid that food. I don't see what is so hard about that. Just make blasts that avoid your food allergies/sensitivites. We all have foods that we should avoid!
