Hi! I’m Laura of Living Beyond Allergies and I want to help you create delicious and adaptable meals for a delicious life!
Welcome to Living Beyond Allergies, a place for trust-worthy recipes and easy DIY’s to make your life taster and easier. I’m a self-taught baker, recipe developer, and photographer living with allergies and severe asthma.
Good food is at the center of so many memories for so many people. Holiday feasts, birthday celebrations, picnics in the park, or even just a simple Friday pizza night. All of these meals are special.
I believe that no matter what your dietary restrictions, be they food allergies, MCAS, autoimmune restrictions, and so many others, there is NO reason why you can’t have safe and delicious foods to celebrate.
I was 6 years old when I was first diagnosed with my severe asthma and allergies. Every year the list of what I could eat seemed to grow bigger and bigger. I grew up with many food allergies and by the time I was 31 the list had grown to over 300 different allergies I had to watch!
That means I understand all too well the challenges that living with allergies can have on your life. I remember what it was like as a kid and got to experience it as an adult.
That’s why I started LBA, to make a place others with food allergies could come and search out recipes that were developed to be delicious and adaptable!
My blogging mission is to give you foolproof recipes and easy DIYs that are adaptable to your dietary needs without sacrificing on flavor so that no one feels left out at the table ever again.

My Journey with Allergies and Asthma
As someone who feels allergic to almost everything, I know how you feel.
When I was 2 years old my doctor prescribed me liquid ventolin to help me breathe and I was 6 when first tested for allergies. To everyone's surprise, I tested positive for everything they tested me for!
Over the years my asthma worsened and my allergy trigger list seemed to grow exponentially.
In spite of my health issues, I believe in living life to the fullest. I’ve traveled internationally, moved across the country (twice!), and worked my dream job as a musician.
Now, I live in the Midwest where the light is beautiful and my seasonal allergies catch a break in the wintertime.
Thanks to eating healthy, simple home care, and management of my asthma, I'm now living healthier than I ever have before. I know it may seem impossible, but I pinky promise that you and your family can achieve health no matter where you are in your health journey!
It’s my mission to share with you all that I know about how to make people with allergies and asthma feel WELCOME to the table.
