5 Tips For Kids/Teens With Food Allergies Going Back To School (From a Teenage Perspective)

Since school has started, many kids with food allergies have to face a lot going back to school. It's already overwhelming enough to go back to school no matter what age you are but I know having food allergies can make it much harder as well. I only went to an actual school for 2 years while being gluten-free. There's a lot to encounter like allergy bullying, trying to figure what to eat, dealing with teachers or people who bring in food for the class. Either way, having allergies during the school year can be difficult. That's why I wanted to share 5 tips to for kids to read or for parents to share with their kids to help make their back to school year experience better while living with food allergies.

Wicked Good Cupcakes Review (A Gluten Free Idea For School Parties)

Since school is already underway for most of you and your kids, school parties usually become an issue for those who are gluten-free. I personally never had to deal with being gluten-free during school parties because I was undiagnosed at the time, but I understand it is a very difficult situation that can make kids with food allergies feel left out. I wanted to find an easy and delicious gluten-free product that can be brought to these school parties to help your child feel apart of the group! After a bunch of research and a little help from the GlutenAway Expo, I discovered Wicked Good Cupcakes as a great option for bringing your own gluten-free treat to a school party. This is my review of their product to help show that this can be a great alternative to make your child feel included at one of these parties or any special occasion.

The Best Ever Gluten Free Mac & Cheese {Dairy Free}

Since going gluten-free I've had a hard time finding easy recipes for some of my favorite foods as a kid. Going gluten-free is hard enough...but having to go dairy free on top of that is even harder. I know there are tons of great pre-made gluten-free macaroni and cheese brands out there but I have yet to find one that is dairy free. That's why my mom and I decided to make our own! This recipe is both gluten-free and dairy free plus it's one of the easiest recipes you can make. Be careful because you'll probably become addicted like me!

Back From My Amazing Vacation I Had Visiting My Girlfriend!

Some pics from our first day and throughout the week!
The last time I saw my girlfriend, Breann, was back in December of 2013. As you can imagine, it's extremely hard to go so long without seeing someone you love. But finally after 8 months of waiting we go to see each other again. My vacation this August was honestly the best vacation I've had in such a long time. I can't remember the last time I had so much fun with someone I find so special. I really needed this break after so many months of hard work on school, my blog, the expo, etc. So since I'm back from my vacation, here I am to share all the pictures from the amazing vacation I had!

Taking A Break To See My Girlfriend After 8 Months

If you've been following me for a while then I'm sure you've seen and heard me talk about my amazing girlfriend, Breann. We've been dating almost a year and a half now, both have celiac disease, POTS, and so many other things in common! But the one thing we don't have in common is living in the same area. We are in a long distance relationship and haven't seen each other since last January. As you can imagine it's extremely hard to go that long without seeing someone you love. After waiting 8 months though I'm happy to say I'll finally be spending time with Breann in person this week! We've both waited so long to see each other and I can't begin to tell you how excited we are. That being said, I'm sure you know we'll be wanting to spend as much time together as possible. I'll be taking a break from blogging for 1 week to spend time with Breann but I'll definitely be back to blogging next week! I'm always posting pictures on Instagram so I'm sure you will see lots of them on there while we enjoy or week together. I hope you all have a fantastic week and look for more posts to come when I get back! -Taylor

3 Ingredient Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cups! {Vegan}

If any of you know me you'll probably know that I love chocolate. Seriously if there is any in the house it will not last more than a day because I will make sure to eat it all. If you don't like chocolate then I probably won't trust you because I'm not sure if you're even human. Lol, in all seriousness I know many of you like chocolate but may be dairy free (like me) which can make it a little more difficult. Luckily there's tons of great dairy free products and chocolate from Enjoy Life to make it easier! But the one thing I haven't been able to find is a safe dairy free peanut butter cup. These used to be my favorite so that's why I decided to make my own! This recipe is both gluten-free and vegan, plus it only needs 3 ingredients! It couldn't be easier so try it out and enjoy!

Breyer's Gluten Free Ice Cream List (July 2014)

My gluten-free ice cream lists that I've made have by far been one of the most popular things I've done. Most ice-cream is gluten-free but once you remove gluten from your diet you don't really know what's safe or not. I've already made a gluten-free ice cream list for Edy's and Haagen Dazs which have been very popular. That's why I decided to make a gluten-free ice cream list for another popular brand of ice cream which is Breyers.
