In case you didn't know, May is National Allergy Awareness month. I have experienced environmental allergies all my life, and developed food allergies when I was pregnant with my last child. Ironically, my youngest was born with the same food and environmental allergies. When you are faced with an obstacle like that, it's hard to find other mom's who are going through the same thing. Luckily, I found some great blogs and websites to get me through some rough patches. If you have food allergies or your child does, here are some great places to visit and get allergy-free recipes, tips for cooking, products you might need, and greatly needed support!
Food Allergy Buzz - great for the allergy-free community and offers link-ups to connect with other moms who are going through the same or similar situations.

The support forum they have is where I have received much needed advice and information...more than I ever got from a doctor!
