In 2002 I had a life-changing experience: I began to have dramatic allergic reactions to certain foods. My story is a long one, so I'll cut to the chase - I cannot eat eggs or dairy. But even if I could consume these foods without reaction, I wouldn't. Nor do I eat meat and I limit my intake of processed foods.
Author and healthy food advocate, Robyn O'Brien knows where I'm coming from. As a toddler, her daughter nearly died from an allergic reaction to eggs. From that harrowing moment on, Robyn began to investigate what exactly is in our food and her findings are not good.
