Welcome to Bare Life!
During my junior year of college, I began feeling extremely exhausted and in increasing pain from debilitating migraines as well as from merely eating food. After ending up in the emergency room, I had to take a medical leave from school. Suddenly, confined to my bed, my life became visits to 30+ doctors, clinics and nutritionists. I discovered I live with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Hashimoto’s disease, Thyroid Cancer, Lyme Disease and its Co-Infections.
During this journey, I have felt so much support and love. Everyone seems to know someone or are themselves living with similar chronic conditions and diseases. A common struggle, I found, is that recommended diets were helpful, but not convenient. The current foods available either didn’t taste good or didn’t cover multiple allergens. For example, I found many gluten free foods, but very few gluten and dairy free foods. And when I looked for gluten, dairy and refined sugar free foods -- I found nothing!
So all of that had me thinking, was I alone in this? I started attending support groups and speaking out and found that answer was a resounding NO!
I wanted to make a difference, so I created Bare Life to bring crave-worthiness (because food has to taste good) and convenience to allergen friendly eating. Our foods and recipes are delicious, flavorful and fun. And, I want to make allergen friendly foods easily accessible, whether it’s online, in your local coffee shop or in grocery stores!
