Winner of New Allergic Girl Book

First off, though the giveaway has closed, I’m going to leave the comments open on the Food Allergies and Love post. A lot of you have shared some inspirational stories, and I want people to continue to share and enjoy reading them. So if you haven’t already, go check out the food allergy stories in the comments!

Now for that winner …

Congratulations to Jamie!

I was diagnosed with celiac disease last March. In May I started seeing a naturopath and learned I am also dairy and tomato intolerant. Considering that pizza, red-sauce pastas, breads and cheese were a large part of my diet before diagnosis, eliminating these foods from my diet was a drastic change, to say the least. I have received nothing but LOVE and SUPPORT from my husband, children, friends and extended family. In April, on our way home from our Spring Break vacation, we stopped for dinner at my mom-in-law’s. Not only did she follow all my instructions to the letter in preparing dinner, she even surprised me with a fresh-from-the-oven loaf of gf bread! My sis-in-law has taken it upon herself to provide homemade gf desserts (she’s a wonderful baker) at all our family gatherings. My husband and children graciously and almost always enthusiastically sing praises for the gf/df meals I make for us. And my dear friend, M., makes sure my daugther has gf/df treats at school at Girl Scouts because, wouldn’t you know it — both our daughters have to eat that way, too.”

Now that is a story full of love! Jamie will get a copy of Sloane Miller’s new book Allergic Girl: Adventures in Living Well with Food Allergies.

I’ll be back soon with a recipe!
