Allergy members - how do you shop for food?

Can you talk me through how you go about food shopping for yourself or a member of your family that has a food allergy. Do you go to the local supermarket or specialist store? If a supermarket, do you buy from the health food aisle or regular aisles? Do you have to check every ingredient label or do products advertise themselves well enough? Do you have to buy specific foods? Is your food bill more expensive as a result? And finally does your household all eat the same meals, or does the person with the food allergy eat separate food?

subculture says: My allergy is a really strange one - parsley. It is a nightmare when shopping for certain kinds of foods such as pasta sauce. My wife or I have to scour the ingredients of every kind of sauce in a bid to try and find one that doesn't have parsley. Luckily we know of a few that don't so we just try to keep using those ones over and over.
