ClaudinePhillipsI am Claudine Phillips and am a Registered Dietitian/Exercise Physiologist and creator of www.glutenfreegreenbean.com.  I look forward to meeting you all in the next few days.

 
4. What is the best thing about food allergies?
Living with food allergies can create a problem, but I find the challenge exciting. It is an opportunity to exercise my creativity and practice “kitchen chemistry”. Finding substitutions for eggs and dairy has been interesting to say the least. I find that cooking allergy free can be alot of fun!
 
5. What motivated you about blogging about food allergies?
My daughter was diagnosed with a severe peanut allergy  when she was 4 then celiac disease at age of 7. As we have adjusted her diet (and our kitchen), I found others wanted to know what we were doing. So, my daughter and I naturally started a blog to discuss products, recipes, and how we travel gluten and peanut (and now dairy) free.
 
10.  If you didn’t have or deal with food allergies, what would be your 3 favorite foods to eat/try?
I actually enjoy eating allergy free. There are no foods I miss to the point of missing them. There is a time or two that I will smell something and it brings wonderful memories with it, but I am trying to re-create that trigger with the new foods we eat. I make killer cinnamon rolls and fry up eggplant like nobody’s business! All gluten, peanut, and dairy free!
 
 
See you in a few days!

I have a changing relationship with punctuation marks and capitalization.  In October 2011 I self-diagnosed with Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, and in January 2012 I stopped consuming milk products on a daily and/or weekly basis. I was briefly vegan, but found it was not the ideal diet for my body. I don’t believe in telling others what to eat, but simply want to share what works for me.

 

 

2. Which of your blog posts are you most proud of and why?
My post about scanning my old photographs led me to examine my journey to the gluten-free life. 

3. Which panel topic do you look forward to hearing most and why?
Blogging about my gluten-free life, has led me to experimenting in the kitchen and slowly developing my own recipes.  I am looking forward to The Art of Recipe Development. 
 
4. What is the best thing about food allergies?
Being gluten-free has required me to become more assertive. I now feel more comfortable asserting myself on non-food related subjects and having confidence in my opinions. 

5. What motivated you to start blogging about food allergies?
Once I became more open about living gluten-free, friends and friends of friends began asking me for resources.  The blog began as a way to keep a list of these resources and led to random posts about my life with food intolerance.

6. What is the best thing about the online food allergy community?
On days when living gluten-free becomes a massive hassle, it is great to read about others dealing with similar issues.

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

Honestly, I do not have an answer to this question as living gluten-free has actually led to a diversification of my diet.
