So lately I’ve been learning about the healing powers of water. Seems kinda strange to say that! I read online that dehydration can cause an extra release of histamines (the thing that causes the swelling/allergic reaction). I’ll admit I’m not that great at keeping myself hydrated but if you’ve been following my page you’ll know I’ve been having some trouble with my lungs. When it first started I would start coughing at night & barely be able to stop. Then I decided to try drinking hot water & I kid you not, the water was the thing that stopped the coughing! Not even my inhaler could do that. As my allergies to my environment tend to get worse in the winter months, I’ve found that this technique works for that too. I still take antihistamines throughout the day to keep it managed but the environmental allergies have not caused an anaphylactic reaction so far. This technique is obviously not something I would recommend in the case of an anaphylactic reaction because in that case it’s important that the epi pen is used right away. But in the case of mild asthma issues or mild allergies I would recommend doing this. For me I get nervous at the slightest itch or wheeze but I can usually tell fairly quickly if it’s epi pen worthy or not. If I don’t need the epi, I drink the hot water to calm my anxiety about it all too. Plus it helps clear phlegm in the throat. I use a kettle to warm the water then I fill a mug about 3/4 of the way & the rest I fill with lukewarm water so I can drink it right away without burning my mouth. But no matter the situation, he’s a friendly reminder to drink water because hydration is key!
Situation Food Allergy: Does your child wash his hands if he doesn’t know what’s in the soap?⠀ ⠀ This happens all the time…. Your teen is with friends at a restaurant. After using the bathroom, he goes to wash his hands. He sees the soap in the dispenser but there are no ingredients on it anywhere. (And NO you’re not there to give him a Wet Wipe!)⠀ ⠀ Are clean hands worth the risk? Does he use the soap?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #thelandofcan #thelandofnot #jjvulopas #canspirational #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #foodallergymom #foodallergylife #foodallergyfamily #foodallergyawareness #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergykid #foodallergykids #foodallergymama #peanutallergy #glutenfree #dairyfree #anaphylaxis #allergymom #canpaign @allergiclivingmag @allergycloud @foodallergyfund @safeandfair @redsneakersforoakley @spokininc @foodallergy @elijahsecho @redsneakersforoakley
The no chew diet has been interesting. Tonight I made black bean soup and blended mine and it was really good. I’ve mostly been doing green smoothies, soy yogurt, and mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy. I even have to blend the mashed potatoes and the gravy until completely smooth as I can’t bite down on the little bits of mashed potato. The other night I made a Thai influenced coconut milk soup and blended it and it was nasty lol. Then to add insult to injury it upset my stomach and I thought I was gonna throw it up. Which would’ve been great with all these stitches in my mouth and some exposed bone. In two days I go in for my one week follow-up. I need to start finding more soup recipes and other no-chew blended meals to eat. I’ve got at least a few more weeks of no-chew diet before I can move on to really soft foods. #veganfoodshare #vegansofig #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #glutenfree #dairyfree #meatfree #eggfree #blackbeansoup #dentalimplants #oralsurgery #veganrecipes #veganfortheanimals #veganfortheplanet #plantbased #eatclean #healthyeating #bonehealth #ectodermaldysplasia #jerf #healthiswealth
This week on my live a mom asked what she can do about her daughter wanting to taste peanut butter but she is allergic. My advice was to tell her it’s not even that great but if your curious as to what it tastes like I can make you something with Sunbutter it tastes just like peanut butter!⁣ ⁣ @Sunbutter is Free of all Top 8 Allergens and is even Free of Canada’s Top 10 Allergens!

I'm so food emo right now. Being all dramatic wondering is mushroom next? Rice pasta? Maybe I'll become freakishly allergic to spinach. Ugh I needed comfort food so I cooked some shrimp, spinach and mushroom in a red cream sauce and pasta. I'm actually allergic to shellfish but frozen shrimp does nothing to me. So there's that positive. 😁 #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #celiacfriendly #celiaclife #celiacsafe #ricepasta #shrimp #pasta #glutenfreefood #glutensucks #glutenfree #dinner #dinner_time #delicous
Do you think you’re having "reactions" to certain foods? 🤔Do you want to know which foods to eat and which to avoid? If so, the "Food Sensitivity Pulse Test" is the most COST EFFECTIVE way to find these answers. 👍⠀ ⠀ The reason this tool is so critical is, THE FOODS YOU CRAVE/EAT MOST OFTEN, are usually the ONES YOU ARE SENSITIVE TO. 😮😮👎🏻For this reason, it's VERY IMPORTANT to have a tool like this at your disposal. 🙏Otherwise, it’s easy to remain in a state of denial due to your “love” for this food!😩⠀ ⠀ How to Perform the Test:⠀ ⠀ Test your resting pulse sitting down, and record results. 🧐Eat the food you are testing, and then test your resting pulse while sitting every 15-30 minutes for 3 hours. ⏱Record all results in note pad. 🗒⠀ ⠀ Evaluating the Results:⠀ ⠀ WHILE SITTING- If your pulse rate increases or decreases 10+ beats per minute, the food you tested is causing a stress response, and it is an irritant to you (allergic, intolerant or sensitive).🎯 ⠀ Rules to Follow while Testing:⠀ ⠀ Rule 1: Because accuracy is important, you must always take your pulse for one full minute. 🙏⠀ ⠀ Rule 2: Test your pulse rate for the FULL 3 hours! Do NOT cut corners! Some allergens take minutes to kick in, others hours. 😳 ⠀ Food sensitivities manifest in SEVERAL different ways. It could be acne, anxiety, anger, brain fog, fatigue, forgetfulness, etc. 🙄🤷‍♀️If you’ve been having chronic symptoms, this is the FIRST TEST TO DO. 🥇🏆Despite what most people realize, food intolerances are a hidden epidemic. 🤔💯⠀ ⠀ Follow @endsickness for more posts on food intolerance, wellness, holistic medicine and more🙏.

Starting out is tough!!!! Physically and mentally. You will probably feel terrible and want to give up—I know I did. Quitting is easy. But if you hang in there and keep at it, eventually you will see the gains—mentally and physically. And looking back to see how far you have come is the best feeling! Why not give it a try??? New group starting in January. We would love for you to join us! #startingoutisrough #girlswholiftheavy #paleomomma #workingoutathome #hypothyroidism #motherrunners #greekmom #fitgreekmom #myjourneytohealth #nutritioniskey #halfmarathonmom #foodallergiessuck #glutenfreemom #dairyfreemom #momofthree #boatlife #workingmomlife #nespressolover #fitmomover40 #takecareofyourselffirst

I have been bummed about missing out on some of my favorite holiday treats this season (my family can bake y'all) because of food allergies I developed this year. But my Mom is amazing (yes you are Ma) and found some recipes I could enjoy. I finally got all of the ingredients I needed for this one and best part it's dairy free and nut free annnd AMAZING. Yes I'm a health and fitness coach but I also live a life of freedom and thanks to my mom I get a treat to enjoy this holiday season. I'll share the recipe in the comments if you want to give it a try. (I replaced regular chocolate chips with dairy free ones). . #christmasgoodies #dairyfree #peanutfree #foodallergiessuck #foodallergieslife #christmasspirit #christmas2018 #momof2 #boymom #girlmom #bestofbothworlds #furmom #dogmom #bunnymom #tweenmom #juniorhighmom #adventuresinparenting #adventuresinmarriage #theyorks

Great post by @thelandofcan #Repost @thelandofcan with @get_repost ・・・ In a CANspirational video I filmed for young people this summer, I walked through the rain without an umbrella to reinforce the importance of knowing what we can control and what we can't.⠀ ⠀ "People who live in the Land of Can stay dry not because it doesn't rain for them but because they bring an umbrella," I said. "You can't control if it rains. You can only control how you respond to the rain."⠀ ⠀ When you have a food allergy, knowing what you can control is a big part of living your best life. It's a big part of finding the balance between safety and normalcy. ⠀ ⠀ I can 99 percent avoid having an allergic reaction today if I stay in my bedroom and only eat apples. (And if I make sure each apple is thoroughly scrubbed just in case they used some odd wax coating, etc.) But that isn't living. So I will venture out from my apartment this morning, and I will live, and I will indulge in foods that are not just red and round and grow on trees. And the second I make that decision to venture out, I need to make sure I am prepared.⠀ ⠀ If I want to avoid getting wet while walking in the rain, I better check the weather forecast and bring an umbrella. If I want to avoid having a reaction while eating out or going about my day, I better be vigilant and double check ingredients and how the food is prepared. BUT even the best weather forecasts are wrong. So when the storm clouds open, if I happen to inadvertently eat something I'm allergic to, I better have my two Auvi-Qs with me. And I better be prepared to use them just in case. That I can control. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #thelandofcan #thelandofnot #jjvulopas #canspirational #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #foodallergymom #foodallergylife #foodallergyfamily #foodallergyawareness #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergykid #foodallergykids #foodallergymama #peanutallergy #glutenfree #dairyfree #anaphylaxis #allergymom #canpaign @endallergiestogether @rebekahreacts @uofpenn @foodallergy @spokininc @redsneakersforoakley @safeandfair @foodallergyfund @allergycloud @allergiclivingmag #apples

Double tap if you're like me and love a good underdog story. Movies like Bad News Bears, Sandlot, and Mighty Ducks were some of my childhood favorites and my love for underdogs continues even today! There's something that resonates with watching someone conquer a battle. Today we celebrate all underdogs because it’s National Underdog Day!🥈 It's easy to feel like an underdog sometimes when handling allergies. I remember feeling so overwhelmed trying to pack food every time we left the house...that was a huge battle because we're always on the go! I eventually learned but after much practice and tenacity. 😉 . If you had to name a battle you've gone through in life with food allergies, what would it be? COMMENT BELOW with a battle and how you conquered it! 🏆 PS. Remeber our victories can be won not curing our situation, but in adapting to it. 🎉 #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergyunboxed

One of the most frequently asked questions I get from allergy parents is how to substitute egg when trying to bake/cook foods that call for it. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ An Egg Allergy is very tough to deal with so I’m hoping these picture guides can help give you all some ideas on what to substitute egg with! ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣#Treenutfree #peanutfree #eggfree #dairyfree #sesamefree #soyfree #glutenfree #foodallergyexpert #foodallergyposts #foodallergynews #allergyfriendly #glutenintolerance #nutfreemoms #foodallergyblogger #nutallergy #eggallergy #dairyallergy #sesameallergy #soyallergy #foodallergiessuck #foodallergies #momonamission #advocate #thenutjobmom #thenutjobmomblog #parentadvocate #foodallergymomsrock #eggsubstitute #foodallergymom #foodallergyawareness
To him, the cookies were a huge success - he helped make them, roll them, dumped about 50lbs of sprinkles on them and nearly broke his teeth crunching on those weird little pearl-ish candies while eating them. He loved them & ultimately that’s what counts. Now if you need me, I’ll be slowly hiding and throwing away these cookies so they kids don’t notice they are gone but also don’t eat their weight in sugar over the next few days. #foodmykiddidnoteat #eosinophilicesophagitis #eoe #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #foodallergyawareness #top8free #top8allergenfree #diaryfree #soyfree #wheatfree #eggfree #shellfishfree #fishfree #nutfree #peanutfree #vegan #glutenfree #christmascookies #bakingwithkids #somuchsugar
These are my favorite 4 little people in the world! This week will be filled with Christmas parties and I will be busy baking and making foods that will be safe for them to enjoy. Just want to say shout out to all the parents with kids who’ve got food allergies or special diets! I see you working extra hard, staying up late baking cookies, donuts, cakes, and whatever you have to do to make sure they have fun and stay safe! #foodallergies #vegan #nutfree #dairyfree #fishfree #eggfree #foodallergiessuck #foodallergyawareness #foodallergymom #youtuber #allergyfriendly #chefmommy #thechefmommy #mybabies #family #siblings #ilovethem #myhearts

What do you do when your yoga class is decorating Christmas cookies and you have food allergies? Make and bring your own cookies and decorations, of course! Thanks @missjonesbakes @enjoylifefoods @free2bfoods @wholesomesweet @yumearth @earthbalance @clabbergirlbaking @mccormickspice for helping us with our baking and decorating! And thanks @ricklouisallen for bringing over needed ingredients so last minute! PS, we colored the icing with beets and spinach!

After being up with him all night, I slept in until 8. When I came downstairs my husband & children proudly shared that they had whipped up some top 8 free sugar cookie dough. Sure they had to sub the egg for a vegan egg & butter for vegan butter...and it wouldn’t roll out...it’s kinda a weird color...it wouldn’t separate from the wax paper... ... but I’m sure it’ll be fine, right? 😬🎄#foodmykiddidnoteat #eosinophilicesophagitis #eoe #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #top8free #top8allergyfree #dairyfree #soyfree #wheatfree #treenutfree #peanutfree #fishfree #shellfishfree #vegan #glutenfree #christmas #bakingwithkids #kitchenfail
ANOTHER EPI REMINDER: Does your child know where their own epi is? It can be scary to explain a life saving device to your kid ... but someday them knowing where it’s kept might just save them. I’ve always told my daughter her med bag lives in her backpack and it’s off limits unless there’s an emergency. She’s kept true to her word of being responsible with it after a billion reminders ... and over the years has learned to self advocate. . It never hurts to remind your kids - that epi is important to always have with us - even in the excitement of our holidays. Teach em young! . It’s also great to have a convo about expectations during holiday gatherings. Here are some great tips for kids, especially those 5 and over ... as they get a little less clingy and more independent 😉 🤓Only eat food from your trusted adult at a party (never from buffet tables) 😎Focus on fun not food 🤩Have adult check presents - especially makes ups and crafts - for hidden allergens 😍Wash hands and face after leaving parties or frequently during if there are lots of allergens present - especially before eating 😇If possible, create an assigned safe area or seat at the party that is only their area if they want to sit and eat (bring a clean placemat that’s easy to set down and pick up) . As always, have fun and be safe this holiday season everyone!🎉#foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergyunboxed

Now is the time!!! 20 minute killer exercise program coming in January!!!

Never leave your Epipen in the car! Epipens need to be stored at room temperature as labeled on the injector!!⁣ ⁣ Exposing Epipens to extreme cold or hot temperatures can affect the dosing!⁣ ⁣ Always make sure your to inspect your Epipen as soon as you get it from the pharmacy to make sure it slides out of the canister easily and also look at the color of the solution so that way you can tell if it’s ever discolored it’s a big NO NO!⁣ ⁣ I want all my allergy parents to know what to look for and never be in a position of having to throw away Epipens! Especially since they’re hard to come by these days! ⁣ ⁣ If anybody has any Epipen questions DM me! 😘⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ #Treenutfree #peanutfree #eggfree #dairyfree #sesamefree #soyfree #glutenfree #foodallergyexpert #foodallergyposts #foodallergynews #allergyfriendly #glutenintolerance #nutfreemoms #foodallergyblogger #nutallergy #eggallergy #dairyallergy #sesameallergy #soyallergy #foodallergiessuck #foodallergies #momonamission #advocate #thenutjobmom #thenutjobmomblog #parentadvocate #foodallergymomsrock #epipen
Read the full Food Allergy Can Opener post. Link in bio. ⠀ ⠀ ... Dr. Spergel could have simply ignored my initial email. (Some did.) He could have given me a hollow pat on the back like I was six, “Good job, Kid!” (Yep, got those too.) But he didn’t. Like a true advocate for youth with food allergies, Dr. Spergel recognized the potential of my message and proactively helped me to amplify my voice. In essence, he helped to catapult my book's lesson to children who need to see it. He probably doesn’t know this, but that initial conversation with him also confirmed the importance of me writing this daily blog. That is the definition of a CAN opener...⠀ ⠀ #thelandofcan #thelandofnot #jjvulopas #canspirational #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #foodallergymom #foodallergylife #foodallergyfamily #foodallergyawareness #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergykid #foodallergykids #foodallergymama #peanutallergy #glutenfree #dairyfree #anaphylaxis #allergymom #canpaign @childrensphila @pennmedicine @uofpenn @allergycloud @safeandfair @redsneakersforoakley @foodallergy @endallergiestogether @elijahsecho @foodallergyfund @spokininc @allergiclivingmag @aafanational @foodallergyfund
Just admiring 3 of my very favorite cover girls on the local paper. This is super fun and exciting, but I have to say when I first saw it my heart broke a bit. These pictures were taken during our girls day. We had girls day so the girls could decorate cookies in downtown Hinsdale because this is something Ryan’s food allergies prevent him from doing. He had a great boy day with Casey and all was well until he saw this. His first question was, “why wasn’t I there?” We talked about how he had boy day, but it still stung. I know that food allergies are a small price to pay for an overall very healthy boy and I know that keeping him safe is my top priority, but sometimes food allergies just suck. Plain and simple. If you’re a food allergy mom know that I hear you and I see you ♥️
Doctors and Adventures were the agenda today. . The doctors tests haven’t revealed much so I’m pretty sure this is just the beginning of our diagnostic journey 😔 . However. It was awesome to destress by heading to the 🐢 conservatory. We happened to have good timing so Kaden got interact with Sweet Pea the turtle while she was being fed. . Remember mommas soak up the calm moments in the middle of the storms.
If your child suffers from eczema I highly recommend this cream! This topic was brought up in my food allergy chat and I’m so happy it was!⁣ ⁣ @cerave has a line of creams that work great for eczema and dry skin! Not many of you know this but I suffer from a skin condition that causes my body to release histamine uncontrollably at times.

Yes - I will be buying this again 😋 Meal planning is tough for me these days and inspiration has been lacking. I eat a lot of potatoes, and for something different decided to try slicing cooked potatoes and lining a pan with them, then poured this sauce over the top... popped it in the oven until the sauce was bubbling - boy was I pleasantly suprised!

It was Easter morning, April 20, 2014. I remember the date exactly because it happened to be Samantha's 7 month birthday. Just 11 days prior, she had had that contact reaction to milk from her big brother drinking milk and then kissing her forehead (previously posted). So when I went to make french toast for a special Easter morning breakfast, I knew for SURE it had to be dairy free and used coconut milk instead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I gave her a few pieces of it, and shortly after she began eating it, she had the craziest sneeze attack I've ever heard. She couldn't stop sneezing! She also started to rub her eyes and mouth, and Wayne and I immediately knew something was wrong. We got her out of her high chair, took off her pj's and saw that hives were spreading everywhere. Once we saw that, I knew I had to take her to urgent care. (We have a children's urgent care close by that is part of Atlanta's main Children's hospital.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The drive there was scary! I kept trying to talk to her and make sure she was okay, but there's only so much communicating a 7-month old can do. When we got there, they immediately took her back to check her vitals and gave her benadryl. We were quickly moved to a room, and as we were waiting for the doctor, she began to throw up. They continued to check her vitals, which were strong, so they never gave her epi. (In hindsight, I should have at the house to stop the reaction from progressing, but you live and learn!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They kept us there to monitor her for a few hours, as the hives continued to spread throughout her body. She eventually fell asleep and took her morning nap there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We learned that day that was allergic to egg. I knew from the moment she started reacting - something just told me in my gut it was the egg. We confirmed with allergy testing a couple of weeks later. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think about that morning every Easter. My life was forever changed that day! As scary as it was, I am grateful for what I learned. I am a better person bc of our food allergy journey!

SITUATION FOOD ALLERGY from @TheLandofCan. What would your son do?⠀ . Your mother is awesome accommodating your child's food allergy, regularly buying dairy-free, "safe" foods that your 10-year-old son can eat. One morning, after sleeping over at Nanna's house, your son is sitting at the table ready to eat breakfast. . "I made your favorite 'uppy' eggs," Nanna announces as she places the food on the table. "And of course I just bought safe bread for you to dip it in." . She brings the butter from the stove and places it on the table. She had used the butter to make the eggs. . "I know you like butter on your bread," she continues. "I bought safe butter last week. It's actually the same butter your grandfather and I eat every day now." . Your son grabs the knife and looks at the butter. There are toast crumbs in it... and the crumbs aren't from his 'safe' bread. . What does he do? . . . . #thelandofcan #thelandofnot #jjvulopas #youarewhoyouare #canspirational #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #foodallergymom #foodallergylife #foodallergyfamily #foodallergyawareness #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergykid #foodallergykids #foodallergymama #breadcrumbs #glutenfree #dairyfree #anaphylaxis #allergymom
His faces never get old. 😂🤨 . This boy has been keeping us on our toes, and bringing whole new meaning to the term ANXIETY since the day he was born. . We had another allergy scare today, luckily it didn’t turn into anything serious, but man it sure makes the anxiety of basic everyday eating that much worse. 😬 . When we’re home, he is sheltered and we have a lot of control over what he eats. It’s when we run to town, he goes to someone’s house, or when we are away that it is just hard. Every fast food place, every restaurant, every stinking meal, consists of asking for the allergen menu, (which most the time they don’t have) to looking at the ingredients on the box, talking to the chef, hoping it’s something he can eat, and praying that there’s not any cross contamination in the process. There is no such thing as eating quick with us anymore. I never could’ve dreamed how stressful eating could be for those with allergies. Something so basic yet vital, and most don’t even think twice about it. . The hardest part though? Knowing that he’s different and will have to miss out on things. And him knowing that too. He’s just beginning to understand that he can’t have certain foods. He will say “no peanuts, no eggs.” It’s so cute but breaks my heart at the same time. . Like many things, once you’ve lived through something tough, you have so much more compassion and sympathy for those who have also dealt with it. Everyone is fighting different battles, and if anything, I’ve learned to give people a whole lot more grace. There are battles others are facing each day that are just tough, and some that we may never even know about. . I’m thankful for amazing family and friends who watch out for my baby like we do. Love them so much, ❤️ And also for the other allergy/preemie mamas I’ve met along our journey. We never have to face our trials alone. 🙏🏼

L I F E When you plan to have kids, you don’t know wth to expect. You get rewarded by their innocence, their genuine love, their cute little voices and sounds, the loving hugs, and their tender kisses. You, in return, give them the world. When I first became a mom, I gave up my fashion career and never looked back. My first born, CiCi, started my new career as a “baker” because of her food allergies. Ironically, 5 years later, my 2nd kid would put a hold on this career. Stella has her own set of food allergies: eggs, soy, and peanuts. I’m grateful that this time around, I don’t have to learn the hard way (ie: anaphylactic shock, swollen lips, gagging, vomiting...). Scary stuff! But it’s a new and different challenge for all of us, especially for me since I am nursing. This means those foods are off-limits for me too! 😱 As the new year approaches, I will be taking very limited orders so I can focus on my kids and family. They will only be so small for so long! Please email me at ciciscakerybkny@gmail.com for any order inquiries, and I’ll do my best to accommodate you. I’m already booking into Feb 2019 so get on it if you would like to be on the schedule! . . . #ciciscakery #brooklyn #bakery #cakery #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #foodallergymom #foodallergylife #kids #kidsaremylife #babies #momlife #momboss #mombosslife #momentrepreneur #doingmybest #showthemtheworld

Before grabbing a cracker from the dining room table my little 3 year old looked at me and asked “do these have nuts in them?” I’m sad that he even has to worry about that, but so proud that he knew to ask. #foodallergiessuck #littlelandonthomas
Back at the allergist office today after a reaction yesterday from his daily OIT dose. We know it comes with the territory but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s still very scary. We were able to adjust his dosing and all was well today. 🙏🏼We know we have a long journey ahead of us and slow and steady wins the race 😊Good vibes appreciated. So proud of him ♥️ #oitworks #oralimmunotherapy #foodallergiessuck

I confirmed what I already knew....I don’t like working out at the health club!!!! I will just stick to my at home workouts with my workout partner. Maybe it’s all the people or maybe it is all the equipment. I think it is too much for my brain to processes. I want to follow and plan, not have to think about it. I have that all in the comforts of my own home. And I can workout when I want and don’t have to wait for machines or equipment. I guess I will continue to go to the health club and do work 😆 I have yet to workout there! Side note 📝 I thought it was hilarious that they were sampling tequila at the health club yesterday. I guess do a shot before you go workout!?!? #girlswholiftheavy #paleomomma #workingoutathome #hypothyroidism #motherrunners #greekmom #fitgreekmom #myjourneytohealth #nutritioniskey #halfmarathonmom #foodallergiessuck #glutenfreemom #dairyfreemom #momofthree #boatlife #workingmomlife #nespressolover #fitmomover40 #takecareofyourselffirst
I don't use ketchup from a bottle when I'm eating at a restaurant.⠀ ⠀ It's not that I'm allergic to tomatoes. I just don't trust the people who've used that ketchup bottle before me, especially little kids. Watch how people get their ketchup from the bottle. Watch how closely sometimes they get the tip of the bottle to the food. Does the food ever come in contact with the tip of the bottle? Yep. I've seen it. I've also seen someone put a knife in the bottle to help coach it along. "It puts air in it," I heard someone say. I didn't ask if his knife was clean.⠀ ⠀ I don't use ketchup from a bottle when I'm eating at a restaurant. Am I just being food-allergy paranoid?

Today is class party day for the end of the year... And I feel sick. It's days like these that food allergies really weigh heavily on my mind. But you know what? This cool cat has no stress. She has her special safe food, she had been well educated since she was tiny, her teacher and school and well equipped to help her and her class mates have been absolutely phenomenal at caring for her all year. So I'm off to work and I'll pray all day for her safety but I also know that we have a great community around us who also loves her and I am grateful. #scaredmumma #bravekid #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #classparty #sharedfood #ittakesavillage #nutritionist #anaphylaxis #community
Would you commit to getting healthy/losing weight/getting in the best shape of your life, if it meant getting paid to do it? Would you believe me if I told you that this “job” fell into my lap? Because what happened was 👉🏻 I was a brand new mom, that needed to do something for myself. I just found out my son had severe food allergies and was depressed, angry and scared. So I started a workout program in my home. Living room or basement, wherever the day took me. A few weeks later as weight started coming off, and I started toning up, feeling energy, feeling happy again, feeling like “I can do this”, people started asking me what I was doing and I discovered I could earn an income by continually sharing about everything I was doing all while being home with my babies. Did it mean being a bit vulnerable in sharing along the way? Sure. But in doing so - it changed the course of my day.. in a very real way. It makes me feel successful and confident. It makes me feel open to new things. Not only would it change my health, make me feel comfortable in my own clothes, give me a ton of energy, make me feel successful and a part of the household finances, but I get to inspire others, and show them there is more out there. That they don’t have to live life in the dark. I was legitimately getting into the best shape of my life, which then encouraged others to do the same, and the snowball effect began💫. Do you want to see more info about what I do and how I do it? I’m opening up a group about how i, along with coaches I mentor, have turned sharing a weightloss journey into a business... how comprehensive fitness and nutrition programs brought me from a depressed post partum mom that needed to lose the baby weight and tone up, to feeling and looking stronger and more confident then I did pre babies. It also brought me one of the most effective emotional outlets for my mental health, all while earning an income in doing so, and how I’ve done it/continue to do it.. There will be no obligations in this group. Come listen, ask questions if you want, scoop up info. But January is creeping around the corner and I’m opening up a mentoring group! Want in!?
