Before I start a quick note about my website and my philosophy on allergy free food...
I am not a professional baker, chef or in anyway a foodie, I just started doing experiments so I could actually feed myself and then it became a passion. I try very hard to make ordinary everyday food so you won't find any pecan and green tea ice cream here. I try to make food that is similar to food I used to eat back in the day when I thought I could eat anything. My hope is that this website will help you to feed yourself or your loved on a daily basis and will also help you make food for special occassions such as Birthdays and other annual celebrations.

My story – short version
When I was 21 I was diagnosed with ME and Fibromyalgia after over 6 years of health issues. I knew growing up I had allergies but I didn’t ever make a link between my allergies and my poor health. I had no idea that I also had food intolerance and the profound affect it can have on your health and your life. I discovered via York Test and the NHS that I had allergies and that I was intolerant to many common foods which meant nearly everything I ate was doing me harm.
Since I eliminated the foods that cause me harm from my diet I have become so well. I am also happy now I have figured out how to make most of my favourite foods in an allergy friendly way. It isn't easy living with multiple food allergies and or intolerance but I hope that my website can provide you with the confidence to bake some of your's or your children's favourite recipes once again.
(If you want to know more about allergy then have a look at the Allergy UK website for further details and if you want to know more about food intolerance see food intolerance awareness for further details).
I am allergic to the following foods...
I am also allergic to grass and anything related to grass such as cannabis I have hayfever but also can't touch grass as in sit on it or I come out in an itchy rash.Cannabis allergy is very annoying especially when you are a Support Worker like I was for just under 10 years.
I'm also allergic to most tree pollen and flower pollen but I am finding quite a few flowers I can tolerate such as orchids which I have around the house.
Oh and I forgot I'm also allergic to feathers
I am intolerant to the following foods....
I didn't feel like I was left with a lot to eat after the above list was explained to me so I started to experiment...
The products of my experiments are what I have tried to capture here on these page. I hope you like them and are able to rediscover your love of food and cooking like I have.
