I would like to send a SALUTE to all of you that are dealing with food allergies and are committed to making it work this holiday season!
I Salute You…
If you have already spent countless hours preparing, shopping, and prepping for more hours of cooking that would have been so much easier had it not been for food allergies.
If you have been lying awake at night thinking of how to prepare a delicious meal that will keep you and your family safe.
If you have made some really hard decisions this week related to your safety that aren’t popular with your friends and family.
If you have had an allergic reaction this week and aren’t even sure if you will be able to participate in your holiday traditions.
If you are worried that despite your best efforts, you could have an allergic reaction anyway.
If you have been dealing with your food allergies for a while now and are looking forward to enjoying the holidays more than last year when you were still trying to figure it all out.
If you are incredibly thankful for the friends and family that have rallied behind you and worked hard to help you get what you need this holiday season.
I especially salute those that have made the decision that, no matter what happens, the most important things are your family and friends sitting at your table!
THANK YOU to every one of you that are making our world a safer place one meal at a time! I salute you!
