Welcome to Happy Tummy! I am a Microbiology student with a passion for health. This includes nourishing my body with whole foods, refreshing my soul with outdoor activities, and relieving stress with yoga. I grew up a tie-dye loving flower child with a passion for peace. As I grew older, my passions shifted from pursuit of world peace to the pursuit of inner peace. In the fall of 2011 I was diagnosed with allergies to whey (all dairy with the exception of aged cheese), peanuts, and eggs. After a few more months of still feeling ill, I cut wheat from my diet and instantly felt better. This blog is about my journey through learning to love myself, nourish myself, and accept that even though I have allergies, I am blessed to live in a country where I still have options for food. Thanks for stopping by!
