Food Allergy Survivors Together Journal
Food Allergy Survivors Together Journal is no longer in print, although the Food Allergy Survivors Together Handbook is still available from all major booksellers. This page has been left online as a reminder of what a fun book the journal was. Thank you to everyone who had a part in the creation of this amazing book!
With participation from nearly two-dozen individuals, this incredibly innovative book contains a little bit of everything (it has to, at 350 pages!). You'll find articles, cooking tips, extracurricular activity suggestions, humor, jokes and cartoons, photographs, profiles of people with allergies, over 30 recipes, stories and a play for children, traveling tips, and much more. The information in the book is new and unique. Best of all, the Journal is informal and uplifting, not heavy and weighty as health literature can tend to be. The information within is geared toward (and contributed by) everyone touched by food allergies, including children with allergies, adults with allergies, caretakers, and friends. You will refer to this book again and again. Our group strongly suggests you get more than one--you will want to share this with your friends, family, and local library.
Opening up this book is like opening a virtual treasure chest containing:

Words that might go through your mind as you hold the Journal in your hands include: beautiful . . . impressive . . . helpful . . . eclectic . . . entertaining . . . fun. . . . In fact, it was impossible to choose sample pages that suitably depicted what the book is all about. Let's just say, these two show a little bit of what the book is about, but definitely not all. It will possibly be your favorite food allergy book of all time. Honest.
