A @muddysbakeshop vegan cupcake is like a little piece of heaven for a #foodallergykid in the MidSouth. Had to skip the cherry with almond cake though because I’m #anaphylactic to tree nuts but the chocolate was divine! Be sure to check them out when you are in Memphis. #mylifewithfoodallergies #foodallergies #foodallergy #foodallergyawareness #foodallergyadvocate #foodallergyadventures #dairyfree #eggfree #peanutfree #treenutfree #fishfree #shellfishfree #memphis #memphismade #anaphylaxis #alwayscarrytwo #epipen #auviq #epinephrine
This sweet girl successfully ate peanut butter today!! At our allergist appointment she tested for peanut with the skin prick (only because of her egg allergy) and it was negative. I have been holding off because I have been so scared that by chance that was a false negative. I gave her a super small amount this morning and she loved it. Feeling good that we can add peanut butter to our safe list! Small victories!! 💃🏻 On to cashews next after a few days of PB!. . . #foodallergies #peanutbutter #top8allergens #top8allergies #foodallergykid #milkallergy #dairyfree #eggallergy #eggfree #kidswithfoodallergies #foodallergymama #foodallergyawareness #foodallergylifewithoutlimits #foodallergylife #mamablogger #babyfood #babieswithfoodallergies

No, it’s not an early Easter post. Just a story involving a bunny🤣🐰..... . The other night I went to run an errand. As I left my house, my dog came outside and instead of sprinting to the car like she usually does she chased a bunny around our neighborhood and into the woods. She loved it - I obviously did not because we live in an area with coyotes and she was out of my sight. My first thought was "these bunnies are driving me crazy lately. All Cocoa does is bark and chase them!" and then I stopped myself. I was justifying getting rid of cuddly bunnies instead of taking responsibility over my own action of letting my dog out without a leash! am trying to get rid of the neighborhood bunnies?!? This ties into life with food allergies because all too often people look to "get rid of the allergens." [I obviously understand that this is necessary in some situations - especially with airborne allergies...but hear me out!] Living with multiple life threatening food allergens including ones that are literally in every environment, including school classrooms and cafeterias. I felt compelled at the beginning of our journey to really limit what was around and then one day I had an epiphany. What if I taught my daughter and our close family/friends how to navigate the environment while allergens are present? What if I focused on self awareness rather than the environment itself? At the end of the day, we can only control ourselves and our actions. What if we knew our emergency plan like the back of our hand and only focused on controlling our own management of the multiple allergens? . I have to say this ideal has been the greatest defense against food allergy emergencies in our life. We have had quite the learning curve but with many lessons! My focus is not excluding allergens but teaching people how to manage them if they are eating with or around my daughter (despite her anaphylactic reactions to dairy and egg). A good quality of life is key for us. #foodallergies #foodallergy #foodallergyunboxed

Situation Allergy from @TheLandofCan — Your family and a group of friends are enjoying dinner at a busy restaurant. The kids are sitting at one table. The adults are at another. . The kids obviously are having fun.Even though the restaurant has been wonderful at accommodating your teen son's dairy and sesame allergies, you still have seated yourself so you can keep an eye on your son's food situation. . "Who needs refills on the sodas?" you hear the waiter announce. All the kids raise their hands. . You watch as the waiter takes the six glasses and carefully positions them on the tray. You watch him walk over to the server's station and pour soda into each of them. . As the waiter returns, he confidently places the glasses in front of each of the kids. You look to your son. You watch your son's eyes scan the glasses at the table. He looks at the glass in front of him, picks it up, and shifts the straw. . Does he take a sip? How does he know the waiter returned the correct glass? What do you do? . Comment. Like. Share. . For more insightful commentary and information, go to The Land of Can's food allergy blog at www.thelandofcan.com. And support the CANpaign to put 1,000 books about food allergies in schools nationwide in 50 days.. . . #thelandofcan #thelandofnot #jjvulopas #eatable #youarewhoyouare #nooneisperfect #canspirational #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #foodallergymom #foodallergylife #foodallergyfamily #foodallergyawareness #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergykid #foodallergykids #foodallergymama #peanutallergy #glutenfree #dairyfree #anaphylaxis #allergymom #foodsafety
I was humbled last weekend watching my daughter celebrate her tenth birthday with some of her closest friends. They rock climbed for hours and then ate up an allergen free cake! For years, I would work very hard on her cake design and recipe to make sure it was awesome as well as tasty. However this year was a little bit different. I took it really easy in the cake category - and stuck to a super simple cake with frosting and sprinkles. Guess what, the kids loved it just the same! My daughter was grateful that her friends were eating the same cake as she was. At the end of the day, she exclaimed “that was the best birthday party ever” which of course was music to my ears! . My point is, sometimes keeping it simple can yield the same results! What can you simplify today that seems like a huge sacrifice as a parent but won’t matter much to your kid(s) or yourself in the big picture of life? . #foodallergies #foodallergy #foodallergyunboxed

When that Friday school-bell rings 🛎 Let the weekend begin. 🎉 🎈 #alwayscarrytwo
CANpaign Link in Bio. Since my blog’s inception, I have been using my Friday post to highlight Food Allergy CAN Openers, individuals who go above and beyond to improve the lives of young people with food allergies. It’s one of my favorite days of the week. There are SO many incredible advocates who refuse to sit back while others needs help. These are advocates whose help extends far beyond their own children. These are advocates whose actions inspire me to be better and to do more for our community. During the CANpaign each Friday, I will be honoring the CAN Openers are who are moving this school initiative forward, whether they are buying and donating books for schools or are sharing, retweeting and promoting our videos to those who can buy books! Thank you for raising awareness of food allergies and for empowering young people to be their best selves! #thelandofcan #thelandofnot #jjvulopas #canspirational #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #foodallergymom #foodallergylife #foodallergyfamily #foodallergyawareness #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergykid #foodallergykids #foodallergymama #peanutallergy #glutenfree #dairyfree #anaphylaxis #allergymom #canpaign #wharton #upenn @endallergiestogether @faactnews @foodallergy

Please like, follow, share. Food Allergy School CANpaign: Successfully managing food allergies in the school cafeteria has a lot to do with knowing what you can control. That’s my experience, at least. For me, success in the cafeteria (being safe & feeling safe) didn’t happen overnight. I had a few bumps along the way. But it happened. Once I realized just how much control I had over my safety, I realized that I could enjoy lunch like everyone else. When I was in second grade, I sat at the allergy-free table. I’m not opposed to allergy-free tables, but the allergy-free table at my school was in a conference room IN THE MAIN OFFICE. That’s right. My lunch table wasn’t even in the cafeteria. Some days, if they happened to pack foods that were safe for me, my friends would sit with me. Many days I sat alone. I tell you where I started because it makes the ending even better. By the end of my schooling, I looked forward to lunch just like everybody else. I looked forward to sitting with my friends and to enjoying all the great social stuff that defined lunch. Sure, I was always “allergy aware” while in the cafeteria, but I wasn’t anxiety-ridden. I was safe and I felt safe. I went from dreading lunch to embracing it. Throughout my schooling, I packed lunch everyday. In the cafeteria, I surrounded myself with friends who were responsible and who I could trust. I chose my seat at the table wisely, took basic precautions to make sure my area looked safe before I sat down, and had a plan in place with the school just in case something would go wrong. (I also had a change of clothing in the nurse’s office in case something spilled on my clothes or I inadvertently sat in something.) And my parents and I regularly reviewed what I could and couldn’t control... #thelandofcan #thelandofnot #jjvulopas #canspirational #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #foodallergymom #foodallergylife #foodallergyfamily #foodallergyawareness #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergykid #foodallergykids #foodallergymama #peanutallergy #glutenfree #dairyfree #anaphylaxis #allergymom #canpaign

Today I am honoring my busy-ness. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with how much I have to do in a moment, day, week, and month... . This past week has proven to be overwhelming and I apologize for lack of regular posting due to this. Yes I have taken a detour! I started my school year last year - which is my 15th year of being a school based occupational therapist. Yes, I even had to take a LTA/Epipen training.😉 . Yes, I am with kids all day long every day. Sometimes my own, sometimes other people’s. Nonetheless they are all my life’s work. . Today I want to challenge my community with the same question I asked many times this week...WHAT IS YOUR GOAL for this month? . I’ll start with saying - my goal is find out more of what people need more information or training on (I.e. cooking; meal planning; travel; talking with people; etc)?. I will be posting more questions and hope you will engage with me so I know how to you discover simplicity within our lives with food allergies! . Post your goals below... #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergyunboxed

Please comment below... As a food allergy parent, what comes to mind when someone says, “School Cafeteria?”⠀ ⠀ Link in bio. Today’s post. ⠀ ⠀ It’s day two of the Food Allergy School CANpaign, and I’m excited.⠀ ⠀ Throughout the CANpaign, I’m going to be exploring various components of attending school with food allergies. I’ll be introducing parents and educators to a series of CAN words. Embrace these words yourself and, when appropriate, teach them to your children. These aren’t words I made up. These are tools that experts told me all kids, especially those with food allergies, should possess. These are words that help you live in a Land of Can!⠀ ⠀ Each week, I’ll take CAN words and apply them to a school setting.⠀ ⠀ Let’s start with the word “control” and explore how it relates to a student (and a parent) successfully navigating an allergy in school. Children living in the Land of Can know what they can and can’t control. It’s vital for allergy management. ⠀ ⠀ Let’s start today with a simple word association game. ⠀ ⠀ I say “School Cafeteria” and you say…⠀ ⠀ Tomorrow, we’ll take it from there. ⠀ ⠀ ***⠀ ⠀ About the Food Allergy School CANpaign. I am hoping to send copies of my book Land of Not to 1,000 elementary schools across the nation (and the world). The book raises awareness about food allergies and also contains an online teacher’s guide and handouts to help young people embrace an asset-based mindset. I’m appealing to people to buy a book and donate it to a school. ⠀ ⠀ In addition to trying to get my book in schools across the nation, I also will continue to use my blog and social media to educate and advocate for children with allergies and their families. Throughout the CANpaign, I will take the words of CAN and show parents how embracing these words will help their children have success in school. ⠀ ⠀ #thelandofcan #thelandofnot #jjvulopas #canspirational #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergiessuck #foodallergymom #foodallergylife #foodallergyfamily #foodallergyawareness #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergykid #foodallergykids #foodallergymama #peanutallergy #glutenfree #dairyfree #anaphylaxis #allergymom #canpaign

Please like, follow, share. Read complete post and support the Food Allergy CANpaign. Link in bio. ⠀ ⠀ Food Allergy School CANpaign: 1 book. 1,000 schools. (In 50 days.)⠀ ⠀ "M&M" is not one of the core words of my Back-to-School Food Allergy CANpaign, but it’s the word that started it all.⠀ ⠀ You see, I can’t eat an M&M. Not one. Because of my dairy allergy, if I do eat one, I could go into anaphylactic shock. When I was younger, I was scared of M&Ms. I really was. I was scared of all things dairy and tree nuts. For the longest time, I walked around with a big M&M in front of my face. And, because I projected that fear to others, it’s all they saw when they looked at me.⠀ ⠀ “I’m JJ and I can’t eat nuts or drink milk," I'd always say with every introduction. I was, in essence, the food allergy kid. ⠀ ⠀ Then something changed. Somewhere along the way, I went from a scared little boy who refused to get on the school bus his first day of Kindergarten because a fifth grader was eating a Twinkie* at the bus stop, to the president of my high school class, to a 20-year-old who lives in the Land of Can every single day. ⠀ ⠀ Somewhere along the way, I learned how to move the M&M safely to the side — I learned how to balance safety with normalcy. And that opened up a world of CAN for me. ⠀ ⠀ I want to share my CAN experiences with other young people with food allergies and their peers. And I'm ready to do it in a big, big way... ⠀ ⠀ Read complete post and support the Food Allergy CANpaign.

When you have a German Shepherd and he gets a little bit over zealous while training and gets your finger finger with the treat! 😑🦈 “but mommm, it looked like chicken!” 😂 . . . #foodallergykid #foodallergy #epipen #celiac #chronic #pots #celiacdisease #servicedog #servicedogintraining #glutenfree #allergenservicedog #gf #dogs #love #fatigue #saveme #ataxia #allergies #autoimmune #germanshepherd #glutenataxia #workingdog #frustraded #chronicillness #invissible #invisibleillness
Almost had our first access incident. We went to a book store (not going to name it) and Finn was not labeled because his vest broke and I still needed to fix it, he was wearing his counterbalance harness though. The manager asked “is that a service dog?” And I said yes and she said ok, just wanted to make sure. However see then came up to us and said “just so you know, next time you come in her he needs to be labeled” I attempted to tell her ada laws and she just went “I’m sorry it’s our policy, we just have a cafe and it’s a health code violation so we have to be careful.” I continued to try to educate her and she walked away. 😑 I was like whatever, it’s not affecting us know. However she then basically followed us around the store the entire time, I got asked pretty much every 5 minutes “are you ok?” “Are you finding everything” “do you know what your looking for?” “How’s it going” “need help with anything” like no I don’t, please stop. I am very respectful of others and try not to take up to much space but no one was there and I was paying attention, I had put Finn in a down against a book shelf I was looking at because I usually take a long time to brows. I had migrated down the sehlf by Payne 2-3 feet without Finn. He was just laying there, perfectly behaved. She comes up and instead of asking me to move him, she reaches over him to grab and move things of the shelf all the while whispering “good dog, good dog.” I didn’t want something dropped on Finn so I told him come and so of coarse he got up and turned around to come to my side. She then said “ok,ok please just make sure he’s on a leash, he needs to be on a leash.” She muttered it the first time but then repeated it. I wanted to educate her but she walked away. He was clearly well behaved and he even had the leash in his mouth and gave it to me. She struck me as someone with a dog fear but please be respectful and just ask if my dogs in the way, you would do the same to a human. We don’t appreciate being reached over, it might take us a bit longer than a human but we will happily move. Just ask!
Grocery stores are usually busy and that has always been Finns weak spot. He is uncomfortable in chaotic environments. We have been working extremely hard on other minor fears and I think in the process we have improved our bond and his confidence to the point were he can comfortable handle a grocery store at night! I’m so proud of him, we survived an entire grocery trip with only a few stress signals that were quickly fixed with some support. Considering this is one of the places I need him the most, I’m so proud of his accomplishment. He still had a long way to go but for now this is enough. . #foodallergykid #foodallergy #epipen #celiac #chronic #pots #celiacdisease #servicedog #servicedogintraining #glutenfree #allergenservicedog #gf #dogs #love #fatigue #saveme #ataxia #allergies #autoimmune #germanshepherd #glutenataxia #workingdog #frustraded #chronicillness #invissible #invisibleillness
A couple night ago I got some bad news. I had just come home from taking Finn running and no one was home. I was sitting in the kitchen really upset and you could tell on the first picture he was stressed because he didn’t know what to do. But without having any training for this my dog would come up to me every time I put my head in lap crying and he would shove his head under my head until I looked up and started petting him. It got me laughing and kept me from spiraling farther. Then he came around to my side and crawled into my lap without any prompting and he just later there with me for s good 45 minutes, looking up and licking me every so often. Eventually he slowly moved to sleeping next to me with his head on my lap. In the pictures you can see the progression from “I don’t know what to do, I can’t help you” to “I got this mom, your going to be ok.” I love this dog so much he is so intuitive and always seems to find a way to help me when I’m upset or in pain. 💕 . . #foodallergykid #foodallergy #epipen #celiac #chronic #pots #celiacdisease #servicedog #servicedogintraining #glutenfree #allergenservicedog #gf #dogs #love #fatigue #saveme #ataxia #allergies #autoimmune #germanshepherd #glutenataxia #workingdog #frustraded #chronicillness #invissible #invisibleillness

Just figured I would post this pretty pic I found recently. The day I took this we were in gorgeous Cairns, Australia on a day trip snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef! 😍🐠🌏 P.S. Australia was not an easy place for me to eat with food allergies but I’ve heard it has improved. I’m looking forward to checking that out! #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergykid #foodallergyfamily #foodallergylife #foodallergymom #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergyawareness #anaphylaxis #allergyadult #EmpowerFAkids #travel #australia #cairns #greatbarrierreef

Yesterday was National Cheese Pizza Day, and also National Be Late For Something Day. So here’s a post about pizza. SITUATION FOOD ALLERGY from @thelandofcan : WHAT WOULD YOU DO? . Your sixth grade son comes home from school really upset. One of his friends is having a birthday party for 10 people, and he wasn't invited. Worse yet, he overheard one of the other boys say it was because of the food allergy. . "It's at the Pizza & Games Galore complex Mom. Why would they invite the kid who can't eat pizza?" he says as he stomps to his room. "I'd just ruin everybody's fun." . You're familiar with Pizza & Games Galore. It's the newest spot for young people, boasting "Video games as far as the eye can see and one of the largest pizza buffets in the state!" . You hear his door slam. What do you do? Comment below, like, repost. . .

Look at this tag shining in the sun and being fancy on my daughter’s space themed backpack. 🤩 I am not going to lie, I happily bought it because 1) it’s not pink 2) the “meds inside” tag is perfectly contrasted 3) I love space too! Thank you @landsend for creating backpacks in a variety of sizes! Check out our bio for info on how to get a free bag tag for your or your child’s bag! This bag will go everywhere with us just like the old shiny one - and carry all sorts of stuff throughout this school year. Let’s hope it’s durable! My favorite backpack that I remember was one from 7th grade - a blue Jansport backpack that I used forever until the zipper broke. 😂 Do you remember any of your backpacks from childhood? #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergyunboxed

Looking forward to learning more about you! #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergyunboxed PS. For us epipen carriers, please check out the link in our bio for a free “meds inside” tag for your/your child’s bag!‼️
Halloween is so much fun! It’s one of my favorite holidays. We are not only a food allergy family, but a homeschool family as well. I’m always finding new ways to create hands on play and learning for my kiddos and this Pumpkin Pie Playdough was a hit! It’s gluten free, vegan and top 8 free. Plus you can whip it up in under 5 minutes with just 3 ingredients, and it’s no-cook!

@inkandpressed This design is close to my heart ♥️! My 5 year old son has food allergies and they can definitely be “monstrous” to deal with during food related holidays like Halloween! . We also have a teal trick-or-treat bag in this design. They are both in the shop now in our “Halloween” section... check them out!

One of my all time fav peanut free & gluten free finds 🙌🏻 my husband is gluten free and my son is anaphylactic to peanuts and shellfish. I used to love not only all things PB but I really loved M&M’s. Our allergist advised against anything cross contaminated or otherwise labeled for potential of peanut in anything for my little guy. That ix-nayed even plain M&M’s off our safe list. My foodie heart wished for fun food experiences for him, and when I happened upon Sixlets for the first time I was elated! Not only does our son love them, all four of his siblings do too! If you get them now you can find them in Halloween colors 🖤🧡👻🎃🧡🖤 I can typically ALWAYS find them at Dollar Tree, but have also had luck at Dollar General and WalMart. I’ve even ordered them off Amazon. . . . . . #foodallergyblogger #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergylife #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergymom #allergyfriendly #kidswithfoodallergies #foodallergyfamily

Today’s the day. You’ve got everything in order🙏 🤞. Remember to communicate and share your child’s food allergy information with #teachers , the bus driver, coaches, the carpool - anyone! Now you can ensure that your child’s food allergy info and their customized emergency plan are available 24/7 at caregivers’ fingertips. Together, this is how we educate and raise awareness. #WeBelay #backtoschool
When I enter a restaurant or anywhere that I am considering getting food, I observe the vibe first. I ask myself questions like, “Is it too busy or loud for them to be able to help accommodate me?” or “Did the host react respectfully when I asked about my food allergies and if they could accommodate?” I don’t do this consciously but with writing Miss Allergic Reactor for so many years I’ve become much more aware of my thought process. It is something you may already do and also not be conscious of, however for those that are new to trying restaurants with food allergies, it helps to think about what to look for when you arrive. Share below any observations you’ve had when visiting a new restaurant! #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergykid #foodallergyfamily #foodallergylife #foodallergymom #foodallergyfriendly #foodallergyawareness #anaphylaxis #allergyadult #EmpowerFAkids #missallergicreactortravels #allergytravels #travel #traveltips #tuesdaytraveltips #tuesdaytips #travelblogger #ttot #restaurant #chef
