Are you going to watch a movie? Do you want an appropriate snack? What is better than popcorn when you are watching a movie? Really, popcorn is a great snack food for anytime! It gives us great fiber, is low in calories and helps curb those snack food cravings we all get. But, popcorn has butter or soy you say? Not when you make it yourself! It’s so easy to use an air popper and make your own in less than 5 minutes. And, In honor of National Popcorn Day, I rounded up some yummy dairy and soy free recipes for you to enjoy!

Who am I?
Welcome to my little piece of cyberspace! Since this is my very first post, I thought that I would tell you a little bit about myself and what I’m trying to do here.
My name is Mandy. I am the wife of a wonderful man, the mother of 2 beautiful, active girls ages 6 and 3. (The girls are now 8 and 5.) Before having children, I earned a degree in Sports & Exercise Science and worked full time in the rehab department of a nursing home, and, later, as an Administrative Assistant and Executive Secretary in several medical offices. When my first child was born, I became a full time stay at home Mom.
The birth of my second child marked the beginning of my experience with food intolerance and allergies. I will share with you my personal experiences, strategies, tips & tricks to help you navigate the sea of conflicting information, and hopefully inspire you, and your loved ones to live life to the fullest extent possible – even on a restricted diet.
In the spring of 2012, we discovered that my older daughter also has reactions to both milk and soy although her symptoms are much different and easier for her to hide from us.
Join me as I explore shopping strategies, home management, home education, and, of course, the kitchen in search of health, happiness, and a full life!
