This episode opened with a brand new voice over intro from across the pond. Following the new intro, we jumped right in to the growing world of food allergies.
Asha LeRay, this weeks guest owns Food Allergy Unboxed. A parent of a child with severe food allergies Asha’s company provides a combination of food allergy training, as well as allergy-sensitive recipes & recipe boxes.
According to Food Allergy Research and Resource Program: “A group of the eight major allergenic foods is often referred to as the Big-81 and comprises milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soybean. These foods account for about 90% of all food allergies in the United States and must be declared on any processed food according to the USA food allergen labeling act (FALCPA)1. In addition labeling of the Big-8 is mandatory according to EU, Canadian, Japanese and Australian / New Zealand regulations, all of which follow Codex Alimentarius recommendations.
Asha, “We look at daily life routines and unbox them finding the important details while simplifying complexities of the process. We also take a look inside at emotions that we encounter as caregivers and how to keep balance through self care as part of our routines. In short…Asha helps families learn to live with food allergies so that they can focus on the joys of life!
