My name is Lauren and I’m a college student living with food allergies! Having lived with these peanut and tree-nut allergies almost my entire life, I want to share my experiences to hopefully help everyone in a similar position. As allergies are such a integral part of my life, I know everything from the best ways to explain allergies to friends to the difficulties of trying out new restaurants. In my nonexistent free time, I love baking and finding the most delicious nut-free recipes, doing yoga, and reading. Growing up, I did not know many other people who were having the same experiences as I was, and still do not, so I hope that here you can find someone to relate to.
