    Love the dip recipe.. However my daughter is allergic to hazelnuts and all other tree nuts and peanuts. What would be a good substitute?

      One of my favorites is natural vitality calm magnesium powder. There is a variety that covers the magnesium spectrum. I’ve suffered sever deficiencies for years so finding this was magical! I take the muscles one in the morning, anti stress mid day and the sleep one at night, I combined it with Dr. Axe multi collagen beauty n sleep to make a tea. Hope this helps!
