I cook, a lot.

Living with allergies, it's hard to find somewhere that can cater to what I need. I find it incredibly difficult to buy pre-prepared food that suited my needs, so I simply gave up and started getting creative in the kitchen. For nearly 3 years now, I've been living with a diet stripped from things my body can't handle. I've suffered from allergies, eczema and athsma all my life and have spent most of my time learning all I can and finding ways to cope.

The purpose of this community is to help others out who are in the same boat, whose diets require a little something special.

It's not as hard as it seems, at all! Taking things out of your diet doesn't mean you can't still enjoy food. In fact, you'll enjoy food even more once you're feeding your body something it can handle.

Allergy friendly,
Intolerance friendly,
Specialist diet friendly,

Dairy free,
Egg free,
Nut Free,
Rice Free,

Nightshade veggie free,
