As a child, I loved food, but over the years, a variety of medical problems have caused me to develop an intense fear of food. Inflammatory bowel disease, food allergies, food intolerances, and a history of intestinal blockages caused by surgery have made eating an exercise rather than the enjoyment it once was. Often, I have chosen to go hungry rather than make the effort to find a safe meal.
Through trial and error, I have found alternatives to old favourites, ways to adapt recipes, and new foods that are naturally safe. Cooking has become enjoyable once more.
Eating out still causes more pain than pleasure, but I have committed to seeking out safe options and getting back into the food world.
Stop by while I share food alternatives, recipes, and products that are surprisingly safe, then join me on my adventure to discover allergy friendly options in both local Seattle restaurants and national chains.
