Blogger Summit Group Photo

Last week was sooo very amazing. My husband and I spent the weekend and Monday and Tuesday in New York City! I was graciously invited to the Mylan Food Allergy Summit that took place Monday night and Tuesday. The amazing women that attended and spoke made me feel like I was in the presence of food allergy blogger royalty. Seriously, I was totally starstruck y’all. New York City is a big place for this small town Texas girl. Speaking at the Summit were Dr. Ruchi Gupta, an amazing champion of food allergy research and care, author of the newly released The Food Allergy Experience, and mother of a lovely little lady with food allergies. and Sloan Miller, aka Allergic Girl who writes over on her blog Please Don’t Pass the Nuts and is the author of Allergic Girl. It was so very awe inspiring to listen to these ladies speak to us about how to live confidently with food allergies and what’s going on behind the scenes in food allergy research.

Thank you Mylan for inviting us to be a part of such a fantastic experience!

There is much to come from the summit on my end. I took lots of notes and have all sorts of tips to share with you in the coming days.

We had an amazing trip but now it’s time to hop back into regular daily life and I have to say I’m glad 🙂

That means that a menu plan is in order!
