Your Food Allergy Guide was created to help make lives easier. Living life with a food allergy is not easy in a world full of fast-food and life on-the-run.
Who should read Your Food Allergy Guide?
Anyone who struggles with a major food allergy such as gluten, dairy, soy, and nuts OR anyone close to someone who struggles with a food allergy: friends, family, or coworkers.
Over the next few weeks I will be writing some blog posts that focus solely on Celiac disease and gluten allergies/intolerances.
How will Your Food Allergy Guide help me?
Being diagnosed with a food allergy and/or auto-immune conditions such as Celiac disease is NOT the end of your tasty food experience. If you are feeling down about your condition, I can help change your attitude and perspective and show you how delicious your new diet can really be!
- You will learn how to read food labels.
- You will learn how to substitute ingredients to avoid your allergen.
- You will find great restaurants to visit.
- You will find great products that cater to your allergy
- You will find and help facilitate a great community of people like you!
- You will help create awareness around the allergies and conditions that people face.
- You will get to see pictures of delicious food and cool places!
Attitude is everything and knowledge is power
Whether you are newly diagnosed with Celiac or you have recently discovered your food allergy, a simple lack of knowledge can create anxiety. Going out to eat used to be enjoyable, but now you have to worry about avoiding gluten. Grocery shopping for your child used to be easy, but you just found out that they have Celiac disease. You can still enjoy both activities, especially when you have done your homework!
Your Food Allergy Guide is a great resource to learn about your food allergen and to meet other people across the world with the same struggles. The more you know about your condition, the better you will feel.
You are not alone.
