Liebster Award Recipiants – My List :-)


Thank you so much Susan, (a wonderful mom and the blogger at ‘The Food Allergy Chronicles‘) for listing ‘Allergy Foodie’ as one of the recipiants of the Leibster Award. It is truly an honor and I walked around with a goofy smile all day – that’s how happy it made me 🙂
 

Liebster is a German word for “Good Friend”. There is almost no one in my family or friend circle who face the health challenges my little one does but thanks to the camraderie of the food allergy blogging community, I find the energy to survive and thrive so this is such an appropriate award…

Here are the rules!!  There are rules to receiving and accepting this award.

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.  3. Copy and Paste the Award to your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the word and love to other bloggers.
5. Have fun.

I follow quite a few food allergy blogs and have learnt a lot from each one of them. So, it is really tough picking out just 5 so, my list comprises those blogs that I enjoy because of the different perspectives they bring to food allergies. They are all moms of children dealing with food allergies, eczema, asthma and more.

And the winners are…(Drum roll please!)

  1. Life in a Joyful Chaos is an inspiring blog about a family’s journey circumventing food allergies, autism, homeschooling, adoption and more – all while managing an online business ‘Truly Pure and Natural’ – whoa!
  2. Colette Martin @ Learning to Eat Allergy-Free is a writer, baker and a food-allergy mom!  Her son was diagnosed with eosinophilic esophagitis, triggered by allergies to wheat, milk, eggs, soy and peanuts. Therein began her journey to learn to to eat allergy-friendly. At Learning to Eat Allergy-Free she shares research, recipes, products and tips on eating allergen-friendly and gluten-free.
  3. Allergy Shmallergy : This blog was ranked in the top-25 food-allergy mom blogs by Circle of Moms and rightly so. What I love most about her writing is the attitude behind it…’Living safely with food allergies doesn’t slow us down and I hope this blog makes it easier for you and your family as well’!
  4. Susan @ The Food Allergy Chronicles writes about ‘creating some magic in the kitchen’ despite restrictions imposed by food allergies. Her recipes are truly mouth-watering and she walks us through tough recipes in simple easy-to-follow steps. Between her two sons the family has to keep away from dairy, eggs, sesame, beef, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts and raspberries. Her sons also have asthma and one of them suffered from severe atopic dermatitis till recently. Her open spirit truly embodies the spirit of thriving and caring in the food allergy community.
  5. Rianne @ Art of Dessert followed her passion and became a pastry chef. Then she became mom to two beautiful sons – both of whom were diagnosed with multiple food allergies.  It was indeed an irony and as she puts it. ‘I bake so many delicious desserts but my own child couldn’t enjoy them.’ So, she spent hours experimenting with allergy-friendly baking. And, did she succeed or what?!? I have never seen desserts that look sooooo beautiful – truly an ‘art’.

Living with multiple food allergies, eczema and/or asthma are challenges wherein a mom dies a million deaths everyday with a smile. These blogs make that journey so much easier…anyone looking for answers and support in the world of food allergies, eczema and/or asthma should so check out these sites. 

I love what Susan of Food Allergy Chronicles said – ‘The thread that weaves between us all is the thread of hope. Passion keeps this hope alive…it is what fuels me everyday. ‘ Cheers to that and good health to all!

Congratulations to all the Leibster award winners 🙂

  1. I am truly honoured that you have renominated me for the Leibster Award. I feel a bit awkward rereceiving it and wondered if there might be someone else worthy that you could acknowledge. I am excited to learn about new allergy related bloggers out there. I can’t wait to read up on the sites you have just nominated. We are our best supporters…the more we recognize and highlight them the more we educate ourselves and others in the world of food allergies, eczema and asthma. Spreading the friendship among our fellow followers. Just a thought.

    1. You make a wonderful point Susan and I will edit this post. However, I do want you to know that your posts and your spirit energize me 🙂
      Best wishes,
      Anu

  2. May I just tell you how you made my day?? Honestly, I was just feeling like I was going to give up blogging because it’s just too crazy here. Then I read your comment and it gave me the biggest smile. Thank you SO much!

    Oh, and I loved the drum roll! 🙂

    1. Denise – your blog has been on my blogroll for a long time coz you inspire me so much. So glad that my post and the drumroll made you smile 🙂
      Best Wishes,
      Anu

  3. Anu,

    Thank you so much for noticing Allergy Shmallergy, nonetheless giving it the Liebster Award! How exciting!

    I love being part of this amazing community of parents who freely share their fabulous ideas, support and encouragement for what could otherwise be a tough situation.

    Can’t wait to pass on the smile this award gave me!

    All the best,
    Erin

  4. Hi Erin,
    I love your concept of ‘having a full life’ despite allergies instead of being paranoid. It is so hard but I do believe that kids who are not paranoid will be emotionally strong adults.
    Yes – it is great being part of this community because I am constantly learning and getting better at handling food allergies. Just today – i heard about epinephrine shots the size of a credit card. Can you imagine how much better our kids’ lives will be if they dont have to carry around bulky epinephrine shots 🙂

    Wish you the best always and thank you!
    -Anu
