Hello! Welcome to my blog: The Teal Ingredient.

For almost two years, my daughter has been living with food allergies- she is allergic to dairy & peanuts. I would be lying if I told you that it has been a walk in the park, on the contrary it has been challenging and overwhelming. However, it has been an enriching and growing experience as well. I have learned a lot about allergies, food & ingredients, reading labels, cross-contamination, etc., but more importantly I have learned to put myself in other people’s shoes- a lesson in patience and empathy.

As a result of  my frustration in finding a local support group to help me cope with the constant anxiety that I face with every time there’s an allergic reaction, my husband came up with the idea of creating a blog.   I want it to be a place where I can help friends and family of people with food allergies understand what we go through. We’re not alone, we’re in this together and together we can create more awareness.
