@AllergyGirlEats

Kortney’s positive take on food allergies is as inspiring as the international destinations she hits on the regular. In the true Spokin spirit, Kortney thinks food should be fun and never lets allergies stop her from making life one big adventure. 

Which allergens are you managing?

I am anaphylactic to sesame and peanuts and am allergic to tree nuts, soy, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, banana, kiwi, strawberry, and lobster. I also have OAS, which means I can’t eat several fruits and veggies raw but can eat them cooked.

All-time most popular post?

My Top 8 and nut-free chocolate protein balls. 

What 3 things do you always have in your pantry?

My pantry is always stocked with a can of either lentils, white beans, or chickpeas — also passata and rolled oats.

Grocery shopping: online or in-store?

I mostly shop at the grocery store — I actually love grocery shopping! Our grocery store trials products, so there is always something new to discover. The one item I always buy online though is Sun-Maid raisins because I have yet to find any that don’t contain sunflower oil in Germany.

Salty or sweet?

Salty — because I love cheese!

Cook or baker?

Cook — there are so many flavors to play with when you cook, and there are no rules!

Tell us something about you that isn’t in your bio.

Something about me that isn’t food allergy or travel-related would have to be that I’m pretty active. I love to hike, jog, and boulder (only inside though, I’m still a beginner).

Favorite feed to follow?

I like to follow @allergytravels because it’s full of great travel advice and shares positive traveller stories. It’s so inspiring to see what other people with food allergies are up to!

Nicole is a food allergy mom who wants people to feel that having food allergies can still be fun. Brb, after we snap out of this food coma that her feed has put us in. So. Much. Yum!

We avoid dairy, eggs, peanut, tree nuts and shellfish — we also follow a vegan diet.

Cook or baker? 

I love baking so much more than cooking, but obviously my recipes cover both on the blog.  

Tell us something about you that isn’t in your bio.

I was a kitchen designer and cosmetologist before going back to school and starting the blog. I’m also extremely competitive and like action movies more than chick flicks. Love the Twilight movies 🙂

@dr.vivian

This California mom and doctor makes healthy eating and healthy living look stunning. She has two children with food allergies and believes that food is at the core of overall well-being and gut health, which is central to managing food allergies.

Which allergens are you managing?

We are dairy, egg, peanut, and walnut-free.

Follow @allergyfamilies on the Spokin app for her top recommendations!

All-time most popular recipe?

Dairy-free, egg-free Alfredo pasta. This one is very popular with the kids and is super quick to make, so a win all round.

What 3 things do you always have in your pantry?

Collard greens (full of iron and calcium), onions (great for gut health, also high in querceptin, a natural antihistamine), and bananas (perfect snacks for kids on the go!)

Generally you’ll find that 80% of my pantry is fresh produce.

Grocery shopping: online or in-store?

I buy shelf-stable items like gluten-free flour and nuts online as it tends to be cheaper. For produce, I prefer to shop at the farmers market or at least in-store as I like looking at the produce and feeling to making sure it is fresh.

Salty or sweet?

Salty. I believe sugar has a negative impact on gut health, which then has an effect on food allergies. In order to help my kids outgrow their allergies, I have been working on healing their gut. So we try to stay away from sugar and only use natural fruit sugars.

Cook or baker?

Cook, definitely! Although I’ve recently started to bake too — I love using coconut and almond flour in baking, and it is hard to find gluten-free baked goods that are healthy and not laden with sugar.

Tell us something about you that isn’t in your bio?

I am a fitness fanatic! I try to run a 6k three times a week, do resistance training and practice yoga at home. It’s important to look after No.1 even though our lives revolve around our kids.

Favorite feed to follow?

Gosh, this is super hard… I don’t really have a favorite as Instagram is such an amazing community, and I love ALL the accounts and learn from them all! But some great allergy accounts are: umpalarain, theallergychef, lindseyleeandco, nonutsformeeasygourmetliving and myberkeleykitchen and milkallergymom.

We are so inspired by Laila’s ability to manage multiple allergies in her family while creating endlessly stunning recipes. This is the perfect feed to follow for meal ideas for any time of day.

Which allergens are you managing?

Our home and family is free from dairy, egg, beef, cashews, and pistachios. Although our kids don’t share the same allergies, we all stay away from the aforementioned allergens to ensure that our home is safe for the kids and free from possible contamination of any kind.

I met my husband in an Indian cooking class. I always wanted to learn how to cook like my mom, but she never used measurements, and I couldn’t follow along. I still didn’t learn how to cook Indian food right away in the class (it took me years of practice), but I met my life-long partner and best friend.

Favorite feed to follow?

There are too many to name! But the allergy friendly accounts I love are @allergygirleats, @umpala_rain and @dr.vivian. They are all inspirational, positive feeds about living your best life with food allergies.

@have_epi_will_travel

Ariella is a California native and world traveler with severe food allergies. She never lets her allergies hold her back as she lives by the phrase, “We can go anywhere and do anything with food allergies.”

Which allergens are you managing?

I’m allergic to peanuts, nuts, non-baked eggs, and soy. Soy is a weird one for me though because I can have most soy products, but not soy milk or tofu.

Follow @HaveEpiWillTravel in the Spokin app for recommendations from around the globe!

All-time favorite restaurant in an exotic location?

Sister Srey Cafe in Siem Reap, Cambodia. I swear I visited this restaurant five times in three days. They were incredibly allergy friendly and delicious!

What 3 food items do you always pack with you?

I ALWAYS carry tuna packets with me. I know it’s a little weird, but it’s instant protein, lightweight, and easy to eat. Plus, I love tuna. I also carry Nutrigrain bars (blueberry is where it’s at), and if I’m doing a local trip or am able to make a cheese sandwich, I’ll bring a few of those along.

Grocery shopping: online or in-store?

Store only! BUT I have gone into a store (a recent-ish trip to REI comes to mind) and read the ingredients, then went home to order the food online. I did that with Mountain House camping meals so I could take them to India with me.

Salty or sweet?

Salty. I’m not that into sweets. Probably because I grew up allergic to all parts of the egg (that allergy has changed as I’ve gotten older though), peanuts, and nuts — so I was never really able to have desserts.

Cook or bake?

Cook, for sure.

Though I boast this image of a fearless woman who can conquer anything with my allergies, I’m still scared in some situations — which is totally normal! For example, when I was traveling by bus in India, I noticed people were snacking on peanuts all around me, then throwing the shells on the floor of the bus where I had put my bag for a split second. Nothing happened because I was super cautious with what I touched and where I put my feet and bag, but I was extremely scared the entire 3-hour bus ride.

Kortney is, first of all, just an awesome woman — completely inspirational with her allergies and what she’s accomplished. She is also extremely talented, and her food always looks incredible!
