I’m Allergic

Hi all! My name is Marisa and I am a 22-year-old journalism student at Drexel University in Philadelphia. I’m a lover of all things food, fitness, and fun. I am also extremely allergic to preservatives. Yup, you read that right, preservatives. No artificial flavors, high fructose corn syrup, or a plethora of other additives found in foods for me. And it just so happens that these days, preservatives happen to be in oh, just about everything. Having developed this severe allergy really puts a damper on what I can eat, let alone where. In order to not blow up like a balloon and lose all oxygen to my lungs, I need to eat clean, real food. The safest bet? 100% organic, whole foods. I even write about my dining out adventures for the online magazine Tablematters.com. This blog is dedicated to yummy recipes, nutritional tidbits, and healthy habits. I hope you follow often, enjoy, and learn something!

Peace and Love,

Marisa
