Getting Garlic in your Gut (Infographic)

When we were touring for the Food Allergy Awareness Expedition, Natural Grocers was all about garlic. It was something they were promoting at most of the stores, and the information was quite helpful. With that in mind, I want to share another cool infographic with you, courtesy of Delicious Living.

Many of you may have noticed that on this blog, we don’t get into health foods, supplements, etc., and that’s done for a reason. No two people are the same. For some people, they have a garlic allergy, while others can benefit from the nutrients found in garlic. Food allergies and intolerances are such a personal thing, and we know it’s important to respect each person’s journey.

If you can have garlic, check out this infographic. Like our dear friend Krysten, from Krysten’s Kitchen, we love to add garlic to recipes. It has an awesome flavor, and added health benefits.

Kids and Food Allergies (Infographic)

Hey everyone. I wanted to share this infographic (courtesy of Delicious Living) with you that may be helpful to you. Currently, there are a lot of resources on the internet about kids and food allergies. Some websites you may enjoy are kidswithfoodallergies.org and foodallergy.org. Also, for those of you that are dealing with kids and 504 plans, Kristin Osbourne runs theprioritizedgroup.com. She is a disability and food allergy advocate, full of awesome information and help.
