The Gluten Free Allergy Free Expo is in Dallas this month! Woohoo! November 15th and 16th from 9:00am to 3:00pm to be exact. They’ve included me as an official blogger this year and I am so excited I almost can’t stand it. Why am I so excited? For starters, once I knew about the existence of the GFAF Expo I wanted to come. It’s been years since that day and now they’re just about right next door. Eek! Bonus to DFW living, woo!

Seriously though,the Expo is an incredible event that showcases tons of companies and individuals that are all working to make our lives better and easier as we deal with allergies, intolerance, and celiac disease. I’m so honored to a part in my own small way.

I’m really looking forward to meeting people from the companies I love that have kept us safe and happy during our food allergy journey, namely, Enjoy Life Foods.  I hope to discover new safe for us products to share with Maya and with you guys too!

There will also be classes available both days. I can’t wait to sit  in on Vanessa Maltin Weisbrod’s class on Sunday  (Nov 16th) to help me with the still-uncomfortable-to-me world of gluten-free baking.

If you’re in the area please oh please come! November 15th and 16th (Saturday and Sunday) from 9:00 am to 3:00pm. Tickets are incredibly reasonable at just $18.93 for a one day pass. This price […]

Growing Out of a Dairy Allergy

Growing out of a dairy allergyHope, disbelief, jubilation.

That sums up Monday afternoon until right this minute. You see, my youngest kiddo, Joshua, outgrew his dairy allergy. The H in the picture stands for histamine, the C is control, and the M is for dairy (milk) protein. I didn’t get a picture with the marker on his back, thus the add-ins. I knew growing out of a dairy allergy was possible, but I dared not believe it could be possible for us. How glad I am to be proven wrong. The picture to the left shows how incredible a change we had. There was truly no bump whatsoever on his back.

Right now the possibilities are truly endless. The day is peppered with “I can have insert random previously forbidden food here“!

I keep thinking up lists of all the things I want him to experience. His current request is a donut from a donut shop. How can we possibly deny him that simple pleasure? As soon as I find an appealing donut shop that’s exactly what we’ll do. Personally, I want to give him a big drippy ice cream cone.

You see, this outgrowing is happily placed right in the middle of us transplanting to a very different city. It’s only a few hours away from Tyler, but it sort of feels like a different planet right now. We’ve gone from the middle of East Texas to Fort Worth.

It blows my mind that this boy of mine gets […]
