Hi there, I’m Laura!
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 over 200 allergies and severe asthma.
This site developed out of a desire to share my recipes created over the years. Just because someone has food allergies doesn’t mean they need to live without delicious recipes! While my all-time fave things to make are cupcakes, I have expanded to include healthy ideas for every meal of the day.
If you have questions or comments about one of my recipes or DIYs, don’t hesitate to reach out! Send me a message here or find me over on Instagram.

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.
