My interview with Brit & Co.

I’ve had food allergies my whole life. I’m allergic to raw fruits, vegetables, honey, soy–and since the birth of my kids, nuts and some fish. This makes it very difficult to be vegetarian or even vegan, which I am in my heart. Unfortunately, in order to be a healthy and functioning human, I need to eat diary, eggs and… chicken (the only meat I force myself to eat and pretend it wasn’t once alive). When I heard Brit & Co. was doing a story on food allergies, I had to jump into the conversation! I got to be my own publicist and pitch myself for the story. Here it is! Please read, it’s great insight into the world of food allergies and what it’s like living with this “disability,” as I consider it!

What It’s Like to Live With a Severe Food Allergy

Lesson learned from this post: Having food allergies is a serious thing and more places should accommodate those who suffer. Until then, please accept that we choose to eat safe and only our own food.

  1. I can totally relate. I became allergic to nuts, peanut butter and sesame after having my second! I stay away from soy as much as possible and cannot eat raw fruits or carrots either. Been vegan just over 3 years now and my body has reset itself and some of my allergies are gone since eliminating all meat and dairy. My bloodwork has never been as good either. Might be worth it to do a “reset.” Let me know if you need help. ❤

    1. Can I do a reset? The only foods I can really eat are dairy and meat. I’ve even been having issues with cooked veggies lately. I have to go back to the allergist to see what’s going on.
