Excited about… Food Allergies

This past week I’ve been working on a “You CAN eat list” and menu for a client. It is such a thrilling and rewarding experience. We all know the feeling of leaving the allergist office with a list of things we can no longer have, and suddenly that list seems to be everything edible on the entire planet. It’s overwhelming, frustrating, terrifying, and confusing.

Thankfully, a “You CAN eat list” puts that other list into perspective.

This is part of the reason I’m looking forward to the Gluten-Free Food Allergy Fest at the end of this month.

They are the “You CAN” conference for those with food allergies and intolerances.

So tired of “nos” and so looking forward to the positive!

Hope to see you there! I’ll be in booth 102 – 104, stop by and say, “Howdy!”

  1. This is a fantastic idea and a positive spin on food allergies that I hope to incorporate more of into my own life

    • Hi Amanda,
      A you can eat list really does change things up. It certainly makes shopping more interesting and fun. I have found that I tend to get into “recipe ruts”…stuff I grew up on and have modified to fit my diet. Having my you can eat list has changed things up a bit for me. Now, I try to find one new item on my list and new recipe, and viola! I am outta the rut.
      Hope you have fun with your CAN eat list.

  2. I love this! What a great idea to have a “You CAN eat” list!

    • I am trying to be better about not just reading and appreciating people’s comments, but actually telling them so. So, thank you for your comment!
