Living With Food Allergies Carnival of Entertaining Blog Posts


 Alisa Fleming, ~ For the past many months I have been a part of a secret underground world of food allergy bloggers.  Okay, it is far from secret, and it is pretty much out there on the net available for anyone to see … but until now I had not connected that food allergy network to Go Dairy Free, a place where it really deserves some recognition.  So this month Go Dairy Free is playing host to the Living with Food Allergies Carnival, a bi-weekly collection of blog posts on food allergies – from recipes to Disneyland adventures!  You can become a Carnie yourself, submitting your own posts to future editions, or simply follow the traveling online show to read more interesting posts related to food allergies.  But for now, without further ado, here is today’s edition ….
