Hi! I’m Laura Schneider of Living Beyond Allergies and I’ve been writing and developing allergy friendly recipes for over 15 years. I’m SO glad you’re here!! 


What you’ll find here: Safe & delicious recipes you and your family will love 


Living Beyond Allergies offers allergy safe, healthy recipes that taste delicious! I’m a big believer in creating recipes that everyone can enjoy no matter what the occasion. Special events, birthdays, holidays, or just a typical weekday all deserve delicious food. 



These recipes are made to be flexible to suit you no matter what restrictions you have regarding food! That’s why they are suitable for so many people: Food Allergies, Vegetarian, Vegan, Whole 30, and more. 


And as someone who is busy with work and family and a life, I want these recipes to be ones you will actually use. That’s why the recipes are quick, family friendly, and aren’t filled with esoteric ingredients. If you have to special order it from a boutique shop that will take 5 weeks to ship to you, I don’t want it in my recipes! 


Whether you’re learning to cook for the first time or are already a confident chef, let’s cook together, experimenting with classic recipes and transforming them into safe and delicious meals.


Follow along to learn how to swap out common food allergens, make almost any meal safe to eat, and how to have fun in the kitchen.


Around here, we have a few core values that weave themselves through everything that we do:


– We believe that good food is worth sharing. That’s why so many of our recipes are free and not stuck behind a pay wall. Having allergies is difficult enough as it is.

– We believe that good food should be simple and nutritious. If I have to order an esoteric ingredient for a cake I want to make tonight, what’s the point?

– We believe in YOU. When it seems like the whole world is against you, no one understands what the heck cross contamination is, or what an airborne trigger can be, we believe in you.


So, let’s pick up those spatulas, turn on our toaster ovens, and make some food that is both safe and delicious.


Let’s get cooking! Here are some of the most popular recipes and articles here:

A little bit about my journey 


Food Allergies Count: 70+

Environmental Allergies Count 200+





As someone who feels allergic to almost everything, I know how you feel. Or I know how your child feels because I was that kid. 


In November of 2019, after moving back home to Michigan from my dream job in my dream city of Los Angeles, I felt like asthma and allergies had totally taken over my life. Allergic reactions and asthma attacks would often spring up with no warning. My body felt allergic to everything. 


So I went back to my roots of how we understand asthma and allergies. I went to multiple doctor appointments and discovered that I had developed about 10 new allergies in my late twenties. Then we discovered that I have a more rare form of asthma, meaning my medicine I had been on for years was not doing anything. 


A few lifestyle changes, eliminating foods, and a few new medications later and I’m a new me! Well, almost. 😉 


It’s my mission to share with you all that I know about how to make people with allergies and asthma (and other chronic illnesses!) feel WELCOME to the table. 


I’ll share with you my lifestyle tips for managing asthma, how my allergies affect my health and beauty routines, and how to make safe products for cleaning your home.

As the main researcher and editor for Living Beyond Allergies, Michelle helps fellow moms of kids with chronic illness learn the ins and outs of daily living through nutrition and maintenance of medications, all while teaching kids to be self-reliant. With a background in Psychology from MSU, she brings her wealth of knowledge on both the physical and emotional components of allergies and asthma to the blog. Michelle fully admits that she might not be the best cook, however, she can bake a batch of cookies that will knock your socks off.
