KITCHEN STAPLES

Finding out you have allergies and/or intolerances is like starting a new job. A bit daunting at first and you get nervous heading into the office (the supermarket in our case), but once you’re all trained up, you are comfortable and capable to be left on your own. Food shopping for us ‘allergy adults’ is […]

THE GROUNDSKEEPER

The Groundskeeper is on of the many new cafes popping up in my local area. I’ve been there twice now and have had quite different experiences both times. It might have been because one was breakfast and one was lunch (so I was ordering off different menus), but we’ll get into that soon! The courtyard […]

GET TO KNOW CHLO

Living with allergies and intolerances can be very challenging at times, but I’m here to help you […]
