Eating Out - Surviving My Food Allergies

I'm creating this post for my own benefit as a quick reference when eating out. It's also to avoid coming across as a nit-pick as much as possible, I do have to protect my health but I like to do that without going into great detail about it if possible.

My allergens in order of importance to avoid them are gluten, cashews, dairy, eggs, tomatoes. Other foods I avoid because they give me a headache are pineapple, mangos, and msg's.

(This is a work in progress) :)
