Welcome to our blog! We are a group of family members that have been affected by food allergies or intolerances and have had to make some tough adjustments in our lives to accommodate this often frustrating challenge. Some of us are the ones with the allergies, while others of us try to help those that have the allergies as best we can. Food allergies are a pain and tricky to deal with. We hope that by sharing our experience, we can help and lift others of you out there that have to deal with food allergies/intolerances in one way or another.
