7 of 11


One common food allergy that’s easy to identify is the immune system's intolerance of shellfish. Unlike many common food allergies, shellfish allergies are far more common in adults than children. Crustaceans are easy to identify and avoid, but mollusks can often be mistaken as safe seafood to eat — squid and scallops among them. Some who suffer from shellfish allergies can eat certain types of mollusks, but others must cut them out completely.

Substitute: Seafood allergens are easy to avoid, but many wish they could eat shellfish to achieve a healthier lifestyle. If you’re concerned about maintaining a low-calorie diet and want the benefits of protein, enjoy lean white meats like chicken and turkey, instead.
