Some of the best parts of summer are edible, however, indulging in the season’s most popular foods at picnics, barbecues and on boardwalks can lead to trouble when it comes to your health. Ice cream, red wine and cheese, citrus, and hot dogs are summer treats that some people may have food intolerances to. Some of these intolerances, such as lactose, may be well known, but others reactions coming from histamines, citric acid and processed meats in a sausage casing, can come as a surprise and cause unwanted health problems. But your intolerances don’t have to spoil your summer.
