I love Sloane's tone and style; it's familiar and accessible. When I read the book, I felt as if I was talking to my very own personal food allergy coach. Allergic Girl is wonderful because she shares some of her own experiences, including her mistakes and her triumphs. She gives examples and suggestions on how to handle various social situations and shows that individuals with food allergies don't need to live life in a bubble or in fear. Sloane is particularly well-known for her advice on how to dine out with food allergies and enjoy restaurants. She shows you can manage food allergies successfully with grace and ease. In essence, Sloane advises individuals with food allergies to arm themselves with knowledge, be strong and take care of themselves, and enjoy life!
Allergic Girl: Adventures in Living Well with Food Allergies is available online and in bookstores. If you haven't visited her blog--I've been a fan for years--you really should. By the way, Sloane does food allergy coaching as well, so it really is possible to benefit from some of her advice and strategies customized just for you. She and her book (and her blog too!) are fantastic resources for the food allergy community.
