1. Who do you look forward to seeing/meeting most at FABC and why?

I have owned Alyssa Fleming’s book, “Go Dairy Free”, for several years. It’s full of incredible recipes. I have introduced several nutrition clients to her book and her website as a helpful resource. I think she did a great job with both! I am very inspired by her story and all she has created out of it for herself. I am very excited to learn more from her!!!

4. What is the best thing about food allergies?

I would have to say that the best thing about food allergies is being inspired to change the way you eat and rediscovering food in a whole new way. As a Holistic Health Coach, I enjoy helping my clients discover new foods and get excited about food again. Inspiring them to eat healthier by making it fun and exciting is always my goal.

7. What other blogger would you most like to meet and why?

I would have to say, Blender Girl. I absolutely understand her love for her Vitamix, since I’ve been devoted to mine for the past 8 years. I remember it took me at least 3 years before I would allow myself to part with that kind of money, for what many think is just a blender, but it is so much more than that! I use mine at least once a day, so it has certainly earned it’s keep! I too feel that food is my medicine and I can relate to her story. I have so much respect for her and I find her to be such an inspiration!

10. If you didn’t have or deal with food allergies, what would be your 3 favorite foods to eat/try?

Homemade macaroni and cheese
Swiss fondue
Baked brie in a phyllo dough w/ fresh fruit slices
