When you walk through Whole Foods with your 7 year old who can read and she sees a display of vegan ice cream cakes but they aren’t nut safe you go home and Macgyver it. Not beautiful but I got it done. Here we have a @cherrybrookkitchen cupcake sliced up with @cocobellacreamery salted caramel ice cream. Bam! #icecreamcake #improvising #cake #veganicecream #icecream #dairyeggnutfree #allergybaking #allergymama #allergyfriendly #mamabakes #eggfree #vegan #dairyfree #nutfree #allergymom #allergykids #allergyawareness @cocobellacreamery @cherrybrookkitchen
I could learn a lot from this girl of mine. Her entire life we have told her avoid eggs, check the ingredients, you can’t eat that but we’ll make it special without eggs for you at home. Since before I can remember, we’re talking even before 2 years old, she’d ask people to read the ingredients before feeding her anything and in her sweet little squeaky voice say “I can’t have eggs or nuts.” But then today, after that being engrained in her head all these years she sits here with an eager smile on her face and complete and utter trust in her Mama (who was basically putting on an Oscar nominated role in not freaking out) and her doctor, because (something else she has learned) we trust our doctors and they have our best interest in mind. Her outlook is bright and without hesitation (well maybe a little bc #rulefollower habits don’t break that easily) and ate 3 doses of a muffin baked with egg in it. She was so brave, so happy and always smiling. After the 3rd dose she developed hives and a red/hot itchy ear so we stopped. Our answer was loud and clear at that moment that this girls’ egg allergy is the real deal even in baked goods. But we would have never known had we not tried! So now our plan moving forward isn’t an easy one but it’s one that will ultimately be her safeguard throughout her life (and Lola’s too). We will be starting both girls in OIT (Oral immunotherapy) for peanuts and adding eggs to Joie’s as well. For 5-6 months we will make the 1.5 hr drive down to Sarasota for weekly appointments with our allergist for “updoses” and the goal is to reach maintenance for each of the girls’ allergens! This means (depending on how they take to the treatment) they may be cleared for free eating of it but at the very least they’ll be safeguarded if cross contamination ever occurred!! I will take you all on this journey with us and I pray for a smooth ride for my girls! Oh what a day!! Oh, and her shirt was totally for me! I had to talk myself out of several anxiety attacks in the process! #anxietymama #oit #foodallergies #kidallergies

It’s back to school time again and if there is something that’s important to me as a mom, it’s healthy, allergy friendly meals for my babes at school. Who’s kid doesn’t like lunchables?? Have you looked at the nutrition? They are crazy processed, unhealthy, and full of sodium. I found this compartment container at Walmart for $7 ish dollars and a yogurt/granola container also at Walmart for $3 ish dollars. I get to make my kids homemade lunches that make my kids feel like it’s fun and special and is totally mom approved. Shout out to all the companies making super fun and convenient school lunch containers that make my life so easy and make my kids happy too. Sometimes my mom skills even surprise me 👌🏼 . . . #backtoschool #school2018 #schoollunch #allergyfriendly #allergymama #cleaneating #healthyfood #thefitfoodie #fitfood #healthydiet #healthykids #happykids #kidslunchbox #happykids #healthylifestyle #happykidshappymom

If you're an allergy mom and have to take your kiddo for a food ingestion challenge, you know how painfully long those appointments can be! Today this happy boy went in for a baked egg challenge and PASSED 🎉🎉🎉 We are SO excited to add this to his diet and are so hopeful that he will eventually outgrow his milk/dairy and egg allergies altogether. Peanuts are a different story! We were at the appointment for 3 hours and he refused to stay in the room while waiting. That was fine and dandy until he realized he could open the door himself and walk out 🤦🏻‍♀️ We saw #babyshark a couple of times, but this mama had to REALLY work to keep this boy entertained (without a phone) and avoid meltdowns, without my go to friends - SNACKS! Sooo...he caught up on some paperwork at the office, played, then went back to his new corner office to test out his new chair. We walked up and down the hall at least 10 times. Then mommy got silly and decided to take his blood pressure and check his weight. We also rode the elevator 1,000 times and capped off our excursion with a Golf magazine 😂😂😂 It was a long afternoon but I had a blast taking these pictures with him and I am a very happy mama tonight! . . . #allergymom #allergymama #foodallergies #dairyallergy #eggallergy #milkallergy #peanutallergy #foodchallenge #passedwithflyingcolors #toddler #toddlermomlife #toddlerappointment #myboy #silly #fun #funtimes #sahm #meltdown #funnykid #sohappy #momandsontime #awareness #allergyawareness #golf

I recently joined a gym. It's about time. For the last 5 years my workouts have been at home with one or more children hanging off of me. That or getting interrupted mid high intensity interval training to ask for snacks or to tell me they have pooped somewhere (hopefully a toilet). I had lost all motivation to workout, it's hard when you can't actually take the time you need for self care. So my husband suggested we join the gym around the corner from us and it's been great. I'm loving going and having that hour to myself. My kids miss their "workout" time with mommy though, so yesterday we did some yoga together. If anyone is interested in doing yoga with kids, we use @cosmickidsyoga . They love it, they didn't poop or ask for a snack once! #allergictoeverything #allergies #milkallergy #eggallergy #treenutfree #nonutsforme #allergymom #allergytribe #allergymama #yogakids #workingoutwithkids #kidyoga #yogawithchildren #zenkids #namaste #cosmicyoga #funwithkids #selfcare #kidchef #kidsgym #allergylife #HIIT #gymkids #gettingbackintoshape #inthezone #snacksallday #zen #kidsinthegym #workingoutwithkids #cosmickidsyoga

Do we eat lobsters mama? Real ones? Ones that crawl around? We're having a little bit of a grumpy rainy morning here.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!! 🙌🏻🥇🍗 # Seriously, the sauce was on point and so easy! Honey, Coconut Aminos, ketchup, lime juice, shallot, and a little bit of red pepper flakes. It was sweet, salty, sticky, and a little spicy. All the things you want in a sauce! Plus I cooked it in my instant pot so it came together really fast. Not sure how I ever went so long without one of these! 🤔👌🏻❤️😉 # The boys approved and ate all their dinner so luckily I wasn’t a short order cook tonight 😮🙏🏻👏🏻 Lucan called it “Juicy Chicken” which is always a good thing👌🏻 # # # #winnerwinnerchickendinner #instantpot #paleo #grainfree #glutenfree #paleokids #glutenfreekids #soyfree #dairyfree #allergyfriendly #allergymama #allergybaby #cleaneating #foodismedicine #menieresdisease #hashimotos #autoimmunewarrior #nurturebliss

Having 4 kids isn't easy. Every child is SO different. My second born, Fletcher needs extra attention. If he doesn't get "alone time" with me he can get really nutty. He can get super hyper, nutty, doesn't listen, etc. It also has a lot to do with food. He can't have a lot of sugar or carbs or he also spirals. Sometimes when he's crazy, to calm him down and bring him back to "normal", all I have to do is lay with him alone in his room for a few minutes. Which can be easier said than done with more than one child involved. Another thing that has been great for us is doing puzzles together. Not kid ones. Adult 1000 piece puzzles. He's surprisingly good at them and it really helps him focus. We just finished this one (yes it's a beer puzzle, don't judge). He's been waking up with me early just do have the alone time with me to tackle it. I honestly LOVE doing it with him. Finding the time is hard, but when we do, it's special and SO worth every minute.

Serious question. Has anyone EVER had luck with making pancakes with coconut flour? Seriously? It crumbles, it's stupid. Right? I love the idea of it, but I can't for the life of me get them to turn out. This batch was a total flop. I ended up adding more liquid (almond milk) and a few other gluten free flours I had kicking around to make it work. On a plus side I ended up with a ton of pancakes. So, is there a secret? Is the secret just don't do it?
We walked today in the @foodallergy Food Allergy Heroes walk in honor of my youngest, who has multiple food allergies. It’s a short 1.5 mi walk through Wash Park in Denver and we love participating. Hopefully next year we can get our team to be a bit larger than the 4 of us and my Aunt 😉 . . . #fare #allergymama #farewalk #foodallergy #washpark #denver #milehighcity #allergykid
Have you had your school #foodallergy meeting yet? I always get a bit nervous for this meeting because I never know what response I’ll get! Will the teacher take food allergies seriously? Or will they dismiss me as an overprotective, 🚁 mom? There’s one easy tip that I’ve found (over 8 years of talking with teachers about food allergies) that really helps with this! I did a LIVE video about it on Facebook this week to share it with you. It’s only about 7 min. long and it will give you credibility, confidence and support during your meeting. Go watch it now (the link is in my bio), then come back and let us know your favourite school meeting tips! . P.S. My daughter painted those pencils! ❤️ . #foodallergiesandschool #allergymama #friendlypantry #foodallergykid #backtoschool #tealvillage #anounceofprevention #startschool #multipleallergies #foodallergymomma #schoolready #allergiesandschool

One of the things a lot of families with multiple allergies miss out on are the great things like sauces and dips! Before my #allergybabe was born I LOVED dill dip for pretty much everything. But especially crispy and salty fries! This is my take on an allergy free and creamy dill dip 😍 fresh dill, vegan mayo, some coconut milk to thin it out, sometimes I’ll add minced red onions or some lemon juice...I’ve even done nutritional yeast to give it a cheesy flavour! HEAVEN 🙌🏼 complete #foodgasm 🖤🦊 let me know if you give it a try and what YOUR favourite dip is 🖤 #momlife #allergymama #itsalifestylenotasentence #treatyoself #veganeats #westcoast #foodallergyfriendly
We crushed the peanut now we are crushing the cashews! One week in and it’s going great! Never would have thought my kiddo would be eating 4 peanut m&m’s and 3mg of cashew a day! @apoyant18 #oitworks #oralimmunotherapy #nutallergy #peanuts #allergymama #allergymom

More allergy testing happened today and we also got our blood test results. Looks like Ophelia's sesame and egg allergies are pretty bad but her peanut one is pretty borderline. My allergist says that it might be a good idea to do an oral challenge with peanut at the hospital. Clearly there are risks involved in doing this, like anaphylaxis but also benefits like exposing her early so she could potentially grow out of it. She also seems to think that babies anaphylactic reactions are often less severe than when you get a little older. When I asked what she would do if it were her child she said she wasn't sure. She is going to bring her chart to the hospital to discuss it with the other allergy experts before answering that question. Anyone else have to deal with this? Did you do the challenge? I'm on the fence...leaning towards no.
How beautiful is this package?!?! 🔹 Thank you @sietefoods for sending my family these tortillas to review on the blog with my #MiniFoodies . They are #paleo & #vegan which means #glutenfree AND #cornfree . There are two other varieties with x gum, so look for more info in the blog. 🔹 Stay tuned for some of our #SieteSchenanigans here on my food...Preview: there is some visual #yummilicousness coming yout way 😋 🔹 #allergyfriendly #CeliacFriendly #allergymama #AllergyKid #tortillas 🔹 #NutFree #Vegano #Semglúten #singluten #sansgluten #CornAllergyFriendly #CornAllergy 🔹 #CornAllergicCeliacEats

So I decided to get the food sensitivity testing for myself. I find this stuff fascinating and I was super curious. Does my random brain fog stem from something or am I just tired because I have a zillion kids? These questions keep me up at night (which could also be causing the brain fog), so I had to do it! I just had to! So my results are shown in the first picture...and man...I feel like a picture of perfect health!!!! I have some elevated stuff but like 12 I feel is nothing! Perhaps it isn't that great, maybe I should be at 0 to be happy? But I feel like it is great because look at the second picture. Fletcher's results. See the difference? 12 doesn't seem so bad, and even the things I have sensitivities too are less elevated than his. Most of the stuff on my list I don't eat much of anyways. So I'm going to eliminate the things I do: eggs and dairy (goodbye butter!) for a couple months and see how I feel. I don't think I'll be saying goodbye too long, maybe just see you later. Anyone else do these tests? What kind of results did you get? Is 12 like normal? Curious where I stand with the rest of the world.

You never realize how many foods and food products contain soy until you’re no longer able to eat it. It’s shocking! Like...why do frozen vegetables need soy? Or dairy for that matter! Anyways...removing soy to keep my little bean healthy and safe meant I had to give up a lot of my favourite international cuisines. Asian for sure. Gone we’re the days of sushi bars and pad Thai. Until now!! Tonight is the grand voyage into a soy free “soy” sauce!! I’m so excited I could cry!

🔆 Allergy-friendly charity spotlight! 🔆 It's National EOS Awareness Week (in Australia), so I'm doing something a little different: I'm featuring a charity! @ausee_inc is an Australian non-profit that provides information and support to those living with EoE. Allergy mom Sarah Gray formed the charity in 2009, and has been working tirelessly to help the community ever since. (I know because I was lucky enough to interview her earlier this year 👉 http://bit.ly/allergy-parent-sg) I love that she even wrote some great children's books to help little ones with EoE (and their siblings!) cope. 💓 This week, ausEE Inc. is running The Top 8 Challenge, an initiative that raises funds towards medical research AND spreads awareness by encouraging participants to go without top allergens for a meal or a day. 🚫🍴 As the mom of a child with multiple allergies, I live this challenge every single day, and boy, are there ever days that I wish the rest of the world just got it. 🌎👍 So I decided to bring a version of this fundraiser to Canada. (More details 👉 bit.ly/top-10-challenge) If you'd like to support ausEE Inc. or donate to the Top 8 Challenge, you can do so right here 👉 www.eosaware.com/donate-2 .

Last year Fletcher was afraid of slides, our pool’s deep end (with his puddle jumper on), and riding his bike (with training wheels). This year he asked his daddy to do this. I mean, what? He is also successfully swimming all over our pool without a jumper, learned how to ride his bike without training wheels and is trying to master skateboarding (help me!). I can’t believe how far he has come in a year. How he has overcome so many fears and gained so much confidence. I am so proud of him and I’m also slightly worried (mostly about the skateboarding 😜).
A morning at the beach, a 3 hour drive home, a poutine, a smashed phone (fyi, don’t put your phone on the roof of the car and drive away.😭), some preworkout and I just KILLED a chest and triceps workout!👯‍♀️ . Old me would have never even considered that! But I have a program that’s all laid out for me, I’m obsessed with the workouts, and coaching really does gives me the ultimate accountability! . Next up, grab my laptop and build an empire from my bed.😉😎👩🏻‍💻

Are you ready for the easiest gluten free and vegan pancake recipe EVER? I got the original recipe from @thequeenofdelicious (search vegan pancakes on her blog...she has tons of good stuff) but I totally screwed it up. Yes I screwed up a 4 ingredient pancake. I forgot one ingredient. How? I’m cooking with a 3 and 4 year old and a baby on my hip, it happens! Anyways I forgot a whole cup of almond (or other plant based) milk. But somehow the pancakes came out perfectly! So I ran with it. So I’ve taken a 4 ingredient pancake and accidentally made it a 3 ingredient pancake. Recipe: 1 cup quinoa flour (or other gluten free flour... I’ve never had luck with coconut flour for pancakes though...maybe I’m cursed). 1 cup sparkling water (or 1 cup plant based yogurt) and 1 tsp baking powder. That’s it. Fried up in some coconut oil and boom, pancakes! I made 3 batches because this is what I do when I have breakfast success. Also because I have a lot of children.
Birthday Lunch: Pizza! Bacon & Italian Pecorino (sheep's milk) with a Coconut Alfredo Sauce on my #vegan #paleo All-Purpose Dough Find the recipe here: https://livefreeandthrive.space/blog/all-purpose-dough-ebook 🔹 #Pizza has been a #birthdaytradition for me since I can remember. As a #CornAllergicCeliac who mothers a bovine #dairyallergic kiddo, pizza seems almost impossible. The reality is that a little creativity goes a long way for example... For the dough, I used #glutenfree #DairyFree paleo ingredients...did I mention that the #birthdaygirl requested it be stuffed with #onions & #garlic ? #yummilicousness , right? She's my 4 yr old #miniFoodie We have #tomatoallergy in the house & so we went #NightshadeFree with a #plantbased #coconutcream #AlfredoSauce Toppings today were a #cornfree #paleofriendly bacon & an #Italian #Pecorino . 🔹 Things I heard around the table: "Mmmmm." -Mini-Foodie Z. "This is so the best pizza I've had, it's better than Zachary's (#BayArea people know what I'm talking about)." -Mini-Foodie M "I've never had this combination, this is so good." -Mini-Foodie A 🔹 #happykidshappymom #allergyfriendly #allergymama #glutenfree #BirthdayFood #happybirthday 🔹 #CornAllergicCeliacEats

This girl doesn’t go a day without snagging some of my shake no matter what time of the day I drink it! Love that I can let my kids get into this stuff and know that I don’t need to worry about it and that it’s GOOD for them! I swear she’s going to start asking for her own soon 😂 and I won’t hesitate to give it to her! #sogood #shakeforbreakfast #actuallybrunch #busymorning #fuelforyourbody #kidfriendly #glutenfree #soyfree #allergymomapproved #allergymom #allergymama #methylatedfolate #methylated #goodforyourbody

What better way to end our week than a trip to the splash pad with Auntie! My sister is a 4th year OB/GYN resident (who actually delivered Scarlett!) and has been on vacation this past week. We’ve loved being able to spend time with her!! Scarlett is obsessed with the water and Viv isn’t too sure. She likes to pretend it’s a giant water fountain 😂❤️ #foodallergykids #foodallergymom #summerfun #allergymama #love #girlmom #daughtergoals
Dinner tonight was 👌👌! Whole food that is quick, fresh, and nutrient dense is the name of my game. I feel like summer cooking is easy because produce is fresh and flavors are bright! Pictured is lightly roasted riced cauliflower, grass fed ground beef, a heaping loaf of garden herbs (cilantro, winter savory, chives, parsley, mint, basil), lacinato kale, fine diced kalamata olives, sea salt, @kasandrinos olive oil, drizzle of bone broth, and a squeeze of lemon. Wha-la! 🤗
