It’s undeniable that food allergies and food sensitivities are a growing problem in our Littleton community. If you’re lucky enough not to have any issues personally, you’ve surely felt the impact when trying to choose a restaurant with a group of friends or as a parent when your child has a friend with food allergies sleepover. Carefree Cuisine is tucked away in the Columbine Valley Shopping Center (3615 West Bowles Ave., Littleton 80123) and was founded to help solve some of the problems associated with the rise in food allergies.
It was a combination of personal and professional experience that made the three owners decide to open Carefree Cuisine. Although the store is not officially open yet, they have a plant-based line they are offering through a subscription service with some local gyms. A protein-based line will debut closer to the end of March. In addition to its retail offerings, the business is also hoping to work with schools and hospitals. Both of which are settings that are enormously impacted by food allergies.
Confidence and peace of mind are what Carefree Cuisine delivers to its customers, in addition to great tasting food. Knowing that you can trust that the food you are eating or serving to your guests is free from the top 8 food allergens is priceless. The top 8 food allergens that Carefree Cuisine eliminates are soy, fish, shellfish, peanuts, dairy, eggs, nuts or tree nuts, and wheat or gluten.
As a mother whose kids don’t have food allergies, I can speak from experience about how stressful it is when they have a friend over who has severe food allergies. Keeping a meal or two in the freezer from Carefree Cuisine would be a huge help in these situations.
An official grand opening date hasn’t been set yet, but What’s Up Littleton will keep you posted once a date is set. In the meantime, you can visit the Carefree Cuisine website for more information.
