Healthy Crumbs Week Recap!!

Allergy Free and Cheap Like Me is so excited to be sharing our first Healthy Crumbs Week starting on Monday! For all of you who checked out our Facebook fan page this week and "liked" us, you were among the privileged few to get the inside scoop on what each Healthy Crumb day will be all about; thanks so much! For the rest of you who missed out on the details, we've provided a recap below. 

What is Mindful Monday?  Well, to put it simply, it's about being "mindful" in our everyday lives! Now, I know the topics of natural health tips, water safety, or toxic ingredients in beauty supplies don’t necessary have much to do with food allergies, but they do have an awful lot to do with HEALTH. And if you are anything like me, we can all use a bit of help in the overall healthy living department. We are all very "mindful" about what we are ingesting through the food we eat by scrupulously reading each and every label and ingredient list to look for allergens. But are we "mindful' about what we are ingesting through the products we use on our bodies or the effects our lifestyles have on our overall health and environment?  Chances are we might just discover how unmindful we can sometimes be!

Cheap Tip Tuesday came about because it came to my attention by comments from a few of my wonderful readers, that I have neglected the “cheap” in Allergy Free and Cheap Like Me. It is true, I have. I haven’t done this on purpose. But I have forgotten to include regularly how making things at home is much cheaper than buying pre-made items from the store, especially allergen-free products. Or how I save at the grocery store when I buy ingredients for my recipes. On Cheap Tip Tuesday, look for ways to cut the cost of making all of your allergen-free meals and treats. These tips and tricks can also be used to save money in others areas of your budget too! Remember, crumbs here and there might not be much by themselves, but gathered together, you can make enough stuffing to feed the whole family for Thanksgiving!  

Guest Blogger Wednesday is exactly what it sounds like! Each Guest Blogger Wednesday, a special guest blogger will be highlighted and will write a post. This is a fun way for me to help introduce different perspectives, stories, experiences, and ideas about allergies to all of you! Look for a variety of allergy related topics from people with different backgrounds, lifestyles, and expertise, as well as, tips about food allergies and food intolerances.  

During New Product Thursday I will highlight and review different allergen-free products.  If you've heard of an allergen-free product you would like me to review and highlight on the blog, please feel free to leave a comment or email me the details and I will be happy to highlight it on a New Product Thursday!  And trust me between me - the picky eater and my husband - who eats everything and anything, you will get a wide variety of opinions! 

Feedback Friday gives me a chance to respond to you, my readers. Topics will be based on your comments, questions, and topics you are interested in or have questions about. Each week I will pick a comment and respond to it, these topics are up to you, my readers, so start commenting on what you would like to hear about! Leave a comment, question, or suggestion on the blog, our Facebook Fan Page, or email me, and your comment might be picked to be our Healthy Crumb: Feedback Friday of the month!

Now that you are no longer in the dark about what Healthy Crumbs Week is all about, be sure to stop by next week to find out just how tasty these " healthy crumbs" are. Thanks again for being great readers and we look forward to reading your comments next week! 


  1. Great! I just love the post! For family healthy living, to avoid allergies, look around the rooms. Are there an abundance of stuffed animals? These seemingly harmless snuggle toys are a safe harbor for dust mites and other allergens. If your child must sleep with one, try taking it away after he or she falls asleep. Just saying!
