I am allergic to both peanuts and tree nuts and have seen many recipes call for nuts of some kind. I'm not sure if those recipes are calling for nuts for a protein source or not... does anyone have any alternatives for nuts? I'm allergic to melons too so any alternatives for those would be great too...

Seeds are a great alternative to nuts. Try seeds like chia, flax and hemp. A great substitute for melon would be pear or apples!
Thanks!
