Danielle Nelson is a writer, mom of three, and occasional social worker. She was thrown into the world of food allergies when her son had a life threatening reaction to peanuts the day before his first birthday. For the last 10 years she has waded through the trenches of food allergy and intolerance, learned how to uncover her family's other allergies and sensitivities and shape shifted her natural cooking abilities to suit their allergen-free needs.
Danielle has used elimination diets and biomedical treatments to alleviate many of the symptoms of her oldest son's Aspergers syndrome. Today he is a bright, engaging, open-hearted child who has been successfully mainstreamed since he stepped foot in public school - a feat she never dreamed possible before eliminating gluten, dairy and corn from his diet.
Danielle writes about uncovering and living with food allergies and intolerances on her blog, Danielle's Kitchen. When she's not writing, reading, knitting, taking pictures or goofing around with her kids, she can be found in the kitchen whipping up safe meals and treats for her family that are free from gluten, dairy, soy, corn, peanuts and (usually) eggs. Her kids think she has magic powers and she likes it that way.
Danielle loves helping folks navigate their own allergies and intolerances. She can be e-mailed directly through her blog and you can find her on Twitter @DaniellesKitchn.
