A mum, a wife, a teacher and now blogger, I bring to this project the energy and research expertise to make sure that other families out there don't have to suffer through food intolerance and can have a fun time with food! Personal experience with my daughter bought about this need to find out more about food allergy and here we are sharing this knowledge with you! Beyond this blog my other personal interests are historical research (I'm a history teacher in my real life), watching Escape to the Country in my PJ's but most of all I really enjoy sleep!

This site and eBook is derived from information that I have personally researched for my families personal use. This is a guide only on how one family started to cut the chemicals from their diet for their belief of achieving greater well being.
The information supplied is done so in good faith and should not replace the advice of your nutritional or health professional. Always seek medical advice before embarking on a new diet.
The nature of this site and eBooks is to investigate the qualities of additives and preservatives in food only. It is not a comprehensive guide to all chemicals that exist in the food supply. No other nutritional information is supplied regarding the products and recipes mentioned.
At the time of publication all products listed are current and their ingredients checked to the best of our ability as being additive and preservative free.
The information supplied by the companies has been provided by their labels and web pages alone. Always continue to check the labels periodically as companies have been known to change their ingredients at a moment’s notice.
Most importantly no food manufacturer has endorsed or sponsored the eBook and Shopping Guide and its research. There has been no incentive given to the Cut the Chemicals Team to recommend one product over another in the eBook, Shopping Guide or What's in the Pantry Reviews.
Essentially this book is written from one caregiver to another who felt it was important to get the message out there that your family’s life can be better!
