So when I decided to take a work contract north of Fort McMurray I was a little nervous. I thought that I would have to prepare myself for a world of hurt food wise. I have been pleasantly surprised.
I had emailed in advance my list of other food allergies and they were expecting me when I showed up to the hot food counter. I was so excited to see that I could even eat off their regular dinner service line. Their regular dinner service has a printed sheet out identifying which items have allergens. The allergens they track for everyone are gluten, diary, nuts, and seafood. They even have a symbol for diabetics and such. Because I have so many more allergies they also set aside a to-go bag for me from dinner to have at lunch the next day. The kitchen staff are wonderful. There are actually gluten free options for desert although most I cannot partake in yet they always have a selection of Jello. Yay.
Anyhoo I have to get going to bed as being up north means all I have time for is eat, work, eat, work, eat, sleep repeat.
