Welcome! I posted my final post in October 2010 for the sole reason that for those who need it, it is the post I most want them to see. It was, for us, an answered prayer. I wish you the best of luck in your journey with food allergies, eczema, and/or asthma. I have since founded ChasingMotherhood. CONTACT: email@example.com XO

With travel still on the mind, I must acknowledge the blessing that is a mini fridge! As suggested to me by an allergy friend/guru, our hotel stays now always include the addition of a pre-requested fridge in the room (so far, free of charge). Start the trip with the previously posted travel cooler, and when you arrive on the scene you are all set to store your allergy friendly perishables (from Sophie Safe Cooking, of course!) And while currently on vacation with lots of fantastic family (who arrived home yesterday with this super cool mini fridge), any fear of cross contamination in the main refrigerator is gone. It's quiet, space saving, energy efficient, has automatic defrost and available here. Vigilance must be on super high alert while on vacation, as well as day to day, and keeping food separated is a great help.

The wonders of the Internet are a constant amazement to me...today, especially, as I write this post on vacation 30 miles out to sea! I felt compelled to post about today's item - the fabulous lunch box by Lunchopolis - because it has been a humongous help over the past few days. Made of a great soft material with cool colors, it is what is stored inside that are the real gems. Four separate containers stacked with precision are the perfect size to transport full meals. Also included is a beverage bottle that stands upright. Not only is the Lunchopolis bag and it's contents a fantastic addition to any "meals on the go" arsenal - it is dishwasher and microwave safe and super environmentally friendly. I also came across the fab RePEaT Utensil Set that looks like it would make a great match. In a previous post I mentioned the great bags by Scout. At times I feel some "lunch box guilt" usually reserved for a an over filled shoe closet. However, when transporting allergy safe food is a way of life you can never have too many ways to stream line the process! Both lunchbox and utensils available for purchase here.
