Been up since 5:45 this morning with my little Babe because environmental and food allergies suck. She’s such a strong girl and beautiful inside and out. We thankfully got some helpful answers and a few prescriptions as well. We now have an emergency action plan in place to make sure she’s safe, healthy, and happy. #anaphylaxis #foodallergyawareness #anaphylaxisawareness #environmentalallergies #petallergies #allergiessuck #epipen #wereready #mystrongbaby #myeldest #motheranddaughter #wevegotthis #myeldest #myfirstprincess #takecareofthehomebeforeimpressingthestreets #mixedbaby #toughasnails #lifestyleblog #lifestyleblogger #angeladotkemper #mrskempersmealsmusclesmagicandmotherhood
We often speak of the kids who bully others with food allergies, but we don’t speak enough about the ones who protect them. Many food-allergic children have friends and family who are understanding, who make sacrifices, and who help to keep them safe. Let’s celebrate those ones – the ones who stand united – the silent heroes - more than we acknowledge those who prefer to hurt. #unsungheroes
Simply put, you are the author of your story. How you decide to react in uncomfortable situations will dictate how you are perceived by others and yourself. That’s right!! Your actions can shape how you view yourself, so always try to take a moment to pause and consider before you react. There is no rule anywhere that says you have to jump to a reaction without thinking first. #spirituality #spiritualgrowth #spiritualhealing #spiritualjourney #foodallergymom #foodallergies #foodallergyawareness
Help keep your #epinephrine safe this summer! 😎 Your epinephrine auto‑injectors should be kept at room temperature (25°C,77°F) until the marked expiration date, when they should be replaced. Your epinephrine auto-injector should not be refrigerated or exposed to extreme heat or light. Keep these temperature requirements in mind if you’re thinking of putting your auto‑injectors in your car’s glove compartment, for example. Allergists recommend that all individuals at risk for #anaphylaxis carry TWO epinephrine auto-injectable devices with them at all times AND an Allergy and Anaphylaxis Emergency Plan signed by a board-certified allergist. #FAACT #KnowTheFAACTs #ShareTheFAACTs #foodallergy #foodallergies #allergy #allergies #awareness #support #education #community #outreach #allergyawareness #foodallergyawareness #advocacy

Quantifying the food allergy epidemic is no easy task. • 1 out of 6 people with a diagnosed food allergy has had an episode of anaphylaxis. • Just 1 in 5 people diagnosed with a peanut allergy had any follow-up allergy testing. Collecting information on food allergies, such as prevalence and types, is important because it allows policy makers, healthcare workers, researchers and others to get a clearer picture of how allergies affect people and are changing. Statistics identify areas of greater need, shifts in prevalence that can give clues as to what causes allergies and help companies, schools and government agencies recognize the need to accommodate people with this serious health issue.

Blog Post #121 — I’m a 20-year-old college student who just happens to have a food allergy so any advice I give on this blog is the advice of a 20-year-old college student. I’m not pretending to be an allergist or a pediatrician or a psychologist or a social worker or a food expert or anything like that. Zero years of med school here. I’ve never researched the psychological effects of anything on anyone. I’m not a parent so any parental advice I offer is gleaned from others. I wouldn’t even know how to change a diaper. I’m a 20-year-old with a food allergy. Period. Everything I write on my daily blog, www.thelandofcan.com, is from my personal experiences of what I feel and what I think, from my personal interactions and conversations with others from the food allergy world. One conversation that I’ve been looking forward to the most lately is my weekly podcast call with my parents, which I publish every Saturday. These honest talks about the challenges they encountered raising me with an allergy have opened my eyes. It’s really cool to hear them respond to my questions, especially since I’ve never really talked with them about how they raised me. I do feel that the honest conversations with my parents will help others, especially if parents listening continue the discussions on their own to form their own personal parenting philosophies. My parents aren’t the only parents who have great advice to share. I simply give them the opportunity to say it. Today I want to extend the opportunity to other parents to offer advice. I’ll pass this advice along in future posts. What’s a simple piece of advice you’d give to a scared, overwhelmed parent who just found out their child has a food allergy? #thelandofcan #thelandofnot #jjvulopas #eatable #youarewhoyouare #nooneisperfect #canspirational #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #foodallergymom #foodallergylife #foodallergyfamily #foodallergyawareness #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergykid #foodallergykids #foodallergymama #peanutallergy #glutenfree #dairyfree #anaphylaxis #allergymom #foodsafety

Allergic reactions can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere without any notice. Whether you have been diagnosed or not, be alert, understand the signs, be prepared to handle the worst case scenario: Anaphylaxis. Food Allergies specifically are an immune system disease. While it isn’t contagious, it can come on at any point in a person’s life. If you believe you are having food related reactions, seek testing from a board certified Allergist, when you need help managing the day to day, seek a certified AllerCoach.

Shout out to @levelcreekumc for making this #allergymom feel heard. This is the third year we registered our little guy for VBS and every year they have gone ABOVE AND BEYOND for him. Every single year they revamp their snack list so all the snacks are safe for him and he gets to just be like every other kid. I think this level of consideration needs to be added to my list of love languages. #joelandrewypma #foodallergies #foodallergyawareness #foodallergyadvocate
I knew as a child that my “normal” was different. I wore a Medic Alert bracelet, carried epinephrine, and read all ingredients before eating. Sometimes there were frustrating and uncomfortable moments, but mostly it was just what I had always known and it didn’t really phase me. I knew that I had to do these things to keep myself safe and it was never a choice. I always wore my bracelet- there wasn’t an option not to. I always carried epinephrine (otherwise we turned right around- not a choice to forget it). Asking about ingredients- a must or I didn’t eat. Some things in life are a choice. With food allergies, there are certain things that will never be. My parents always chose safety first, therefore they found other ways for me to feel empowered with choices. For example, I couldn’t eat the birthday cake at a friend’s party, however I could choose which safe treat I wanted to bring with me to the party. I know my “normal” looked different, but as a child that was what I had always known and I knew some choices I could make and others were about safety and weren’t up to me to decide. What does your “normal” look like? How do choices work for you? #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergykid #foodallergyfamily #foodallergylife #foodallergymom #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergyawareness #anaphylaxis #allergyadult #EmpowerFAkids

PIT STOP! We are on our second to last leg of our family summer road trip. Yesterday was a long haul day and I could not be more excited to find out that the @crackerbarrel has a food allergy menu. Our server was confident with her knowledge, walked me through the menu, informed her two managers and the chef about my son’s allergies, and we were checked in on multiple times. 🚙 Stopping to refuel and stretch your legs often is so important on a road trip. I’m really excited we found something other than french fries to feed our food allergy son. 🍟 #foodallergyfamily #foodallergyawareness #foodallergies #roadtrippers #familyvacation2018 #nonuts #noeggs #summerplans #familytravels #allergytravels #fare #faact #familytraveltribe

8th Annual Sumer Scamper at Stanford University in the books. Another great Family Funday Sunday. The boys ran their hearts out and competed strong. FJ’s age group this year ran 1.5 laps around the track! The longest race for him to date! He did not quit or give up! The boys made us so proud today! I got to meet a young girl who has gone through food allergy research trials and is now desensitized to eggs, peanuts, milk and soy!! It is amazing the research Dr. Kari Nadeau is performing at Stanford University!! She’s onto something amazing!! I encourage everyone who is affected by food allergies or holds this cause near and dear to their heart to consider donating to her research. We continue to wait to be accepted into a clinical trial for the boys. Until then the best and most effective way to prevent food reactions is avoidance. We continue to pray for Dr. Nadeau and her research for a cure and we pray for all those affected by food allergies may they eat safely and without fear!

💕Food allergy win tonight!!💕 I’m not gonna lie... even though we’ve been at this food allergy life for awhile now our most recent round of test results has been the most challenging. We added rice, cows milk, beef, chicken, coconut, and watermelon allergies to already having severe peanut and tree nut allergies. Not to mention adding some pretty serious animal and environmental allergies too. The rice allergy has excluded not only rice but many of our “top 8 allergen free” snacks since they use rice flour frequently to avoid wheat. The cows milk... well pizza and cheese sticks were almost their own food groups to her. So it’s been rough but we’ve been managing. Tonight we had a major food allergy win! Our local @littlecaesars has always been great but tonight they totally accommodated us without any laughs or hurtful jokes. I think people mean well overall, they are just uncomfortable when we have to request “odd” things. We didn’t even get the “oh that must be SO awful”, which is a really nice thought but ultimately ends up making her feel worse. The gentleman took our order like it was totally normal and then took extra care to go to the back and clarify our order. The pizza was perfect. Not one stray piece of cheese on her side! Once we got home we were able to pop it in the oven with safe goat and sheep milk cheeses that she can eat. Her first pizza in months and she was SO happy! 4 whole pieces down 😂 Thank you so much @littlecaesars for an awesome night! It’s the little gestures like this that make such a huge difference! 💕 . . **disclaimer** A lot of people with dairy allergies can’t eat any form of cheese at all. Getting anything from a pizza place would be impossible due to cross contamination. Our peanut allergy is very sensitive like that. However, this is ok for our cows milk allergy since her allergist okay’d her to have baked milk and cross contaminated items. So our experience may not be typical for some dairy allergies** . . #foodallergies #severefoodallergies #lifethreateningfoodallergies #foodallergyawareness #dairyallergy #cowsmilkallergy #peanutallergy #treenutallergy #littlebutfierce #foodallergykids #foodallergykid

Food Allergy Talk With Mom & Dad: Each Saturday, I call home, and my parents and I have a brief but honest podcast discussion about the challenges of raising a child with an allergy. I’ve never really talked to my parents about the challenges they had raising me. I’m eager to find things out. Maybe their experiences might help someone else, too. This week, I ask my parents if they tried to pick my friends when I was younger based on how they responded to my food allergy. Listen to @jjvulopas podcast at www.thelandofcan.com. Like. Follow.

Summer has begun! How do you relax when you are on vacation? When we are vacationing by the beach or at the lake, I, personally love to take in the energy and peacefulness of the water and relaxation of reading a good book. I just finished reading, The Alchemist, by Paul Coelho, and am now reading, The Greatest Secret of all, by Marc Allen. What are you reading for enjoyment? #thekitchenalchemist #books #marcallen #cookbook #vacation #summer #memoir #foodallergies #foodallergymom #foodallergyawareness #anaphylaxis #nonfiction #author #entrepreneur
Until it happens to you, you don’t think of food as a danger, and neither do your friends/family. It is so easy for a simple oversight to prove a huge mistake for kids with food allergies. We have had more than one close call when our son was with family and friends that love him and would never knowingly cause him harm. - We are passionate about changing the course of food allergies because every day we live with a fear that we wouldn't wish on any other parent. . Our son has multiple food allergies, and like it or not, it is shaping not just what he eats, but who he becomes. He has a plausible reason to fear something most people don't even think about. How we will help him overcome these fears is a problem that is not as easy to solve. - - - - - #foodallergyawareness #parenthoodunplugged #reallife #realmoms #momsofboys #allergymom #coping #fearoffood #parentingishard #parentingtips #parentingsolutions #copingskills #foodallergiessuck #foodallergies #brandstory #ourstory #peanutallergy #eggallergy #foodfears
No one plans to have an anaphylactic reaction. And certainly not someone as well informed and equipped as food allergy advocate @Susan_Tatelli. And yet it happened. A perfect storm, with multiple variables that are unlikely to all align coming together at one time.. A reminder of how unpredictable food allergies can be.

I cherish our slow weekend mornings, we literally just ended our morning snuggles to start breakfast. Now off to start my #saturdayselfcare with @ippatsusalon before heading off to see our first movie as a family. And it’s at the #driveintheater !! The theatre is about 40 minutes away, we are bringing all the food for our group (so it’s #allergyfriendly for Anderson*), and we’ll be up super late but I can not wait for him to get this special early birthday treat from his aunties. #experiencesoverthings . *I say allergy friendly “for Anderson” because one person’s allergen is another person’s safe food. Allergy friendly really depends on an individual’s specific allergens and, while peanuts get a ton of attention, people can have life-threatening allergies to ANY food. I’m more wary of products labeled “allergy friendly” because that just highlights that they’re not fully educated regarding allergies. As a food allergy mom I find it particularly annoying when products are labeled or described as “allergen free” because there’s literally no such thing. #foodallergyawareness

“I not only love butterflies, but this ribbon means a lot to me.” @GolfDisneyPrincess : I’m 34 years old. I’ve had food allergies since I was 23. I’m allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, stone fruits, bananas and strawberries. These are things I used to eat as a child, but because I’m anaphylactic, they have become dangerous. Guys have refused to date me because they don’t want to deal with the food allergies. I’ve been to restaurants that have treated me pretty badly because I ask if things are made with nuts. @disney is seriously the only place I’ve felt safe eating because they are so vigilant with food safety. And I thank them with having the Teal Pumpkin Project at their Halloween parties. I was so excited to feel included in the fun in a safe way. If there is something I could tell people, it is...I never asked to be allergic to foods. It’s hard on me enough with being put down for it. Be kinder to people with food allergies! We fear food more than we enjoy it! #redsneakersforoakley #ihavefoodallergies #tealpumpkinproject #foodallergyawareness #foodallergies

We are gearing up for the #SummerScamper this weekend where the boys will be running for Food Allergy Awareness and raising money for a cure for food allergies. This is very near and dear to our hearts as many of you know. Both our boys have multiple food allergies. We carry Epi pens, Benadryl, Zyrtec, inhalers, nebulizers etc everywhere we go. We have to plan food ahead and read labels religiously. I have worked hard to make safe, yummy, nutritious and delicious food for my kiddos. And worked hard to make sure they did not ever feel left out when others are eating or enjoying a dessert. I would love to see the day where my boys can eat freely and without fear of food hurting them. Please cheer them on this weekend! They are so excited and can’t wait for the run. I love that this run has become tradition for our family. So many life lessons on health, fitness, generosity, philanthropy and having a good and gracious heart!
I’m not sure why, but tonight I felt compelled to share my reason for getting started on our journey toward better health: for chasing after it for years, and for starting my own business in it in order to make it my life’s mission. It wasn’t about me then- and it still isn’t today. Before this all began, I consumed whatever I wanted- Fast food burgers every day, wine every night... and I fed my kids unconscious meals too. Until one day my 9 month old (pictured here, now 11💗) was diagnosed with asthma. When the doctors only recommendation was to have her inhale a steroid, a very loud voice inside me said to get a second opinion. So, I asked my pediatrician for a referral- to a Naturopathic Doctor in the area, and my life (and my children’s lives) was forever changed. That was over 10 years ago. Fast forward to now and this beautiful girl is thriving, healthy, and still asthma free!! How? Healing through nutrition, and supplements. Once I saw with my own eyes that the food we eat can affect our bodies so much, I couldn’t keep my mouth shut. I was so changed by this new world that I truly vowed to tell everyone, and help as many people as I could. You guys, I’m a realist. I eat clean 80 % of the time, and the other 20% I consume what I want. I know people are human- I know no one is perfect. But I also know the human body combined with the human spirit- to grow and evolve- is unstoppable. You can heal, you can push yourself to be better, you can adapt and change... without being perfect. I also know it isn’t easy, and it can take a village of support. Anyways, I didn’t want to go on forever about it, I just wanted to share with you what makes me post and talk about it so much. My kids. They’re my why, and my everything❤️ And they’ve taught me that we all need each other.
About to fly for the first time, dine al fresco at the new Sushi Restaurant down the block or leave on vacation on a cruise in the Caribbean? When you have food allergies, it’s natural to be afraid. But who said that fear has to hold you back?

We're definitely trying this out this weekend! @ashas.teal.adventures made doughnuts with her SAFE + FAIR Vanilla Cake Mix. Thanks for sharing, they look delicious! #regram #FoodAllergyFreeFriday
