5 Travel Mistakes to Avoid |

Part of me gets nervous before just about every trip I take. If you have food allergies and/or other health issues, I know you can relate. When you put yourself in an extended situation where you have less control over your environment, meals, ingredients used, and overall routine, it can definitely raise the old stress […]

Am I Spending Too Much Money on Food?

It’s a question I’ve asked myself more than once: Am I spending too much money on food? There’s no sugar-coating it. Eating a “special” diet can definitely be hard on the old wallet. There are times when I’m at the store paying for my load of gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, sugar-free, grain-free, legume-free groceries and think […]

5 Lessons from My First Week on the AIP

My dad and I were driving on some country roads, me sitting fearfully behind the wheel with white knuckles and a hammering heart. I was 15 and learning how to drive.
