So anyone planning a Free From Feast? Please share your details here. I would love to organise one myself but may be on holiday at the time. No excuses I know but a blogger needs a holiday from all things blogging and allergies. No doubt Mr What Allergy and myself will be having our usual picnic lunch anyway so we’ll share some pics if we do. Good luck my free from feasters.

I’m thinking Artisan Bread, Miracle cake, some Frank Bars, Nairns oat cakes of course, some humous, Green’s gluten free ale, an apple and maybe even some home made flapjacks. Bring it on.



An allergy and health writer and freelance copywriter, Ruth is passionate about helping those with allergies and food intolerances take control, embrace their condition, and learn to live with and love who they are. It can be very lonely finding you have allergies and discovering what helps you can be a life long journey. What works for one person won't work for another, so after trying nearly every allergy treatment under the sun and finding hours of research necessary to keep abreast of what's going on, Ruth started writing her blog, What Allergy? in April 2009. Ruth has life threatening allergies herself to all nuts, all diary, tomatoes and celery and knows first-hand what it's like to have an anaphylactic attack. Voted in the Top 5 UK allergy blogs by Cision UK in 2011, What Allergy is packed full of interesting articles, hints and tips and product reviews which are a must read for anyone with allergies, food intolerances or sensitivities, asthma and eczema. From subjects such as "What is celery allergy?" to "Surviving a holiday abroad with allergies", it's packed with useful and interesting information.
