A Mom's Guide to Low FODMAP Shopping at Wegmans in State College, PA

Over the past few years, I have been experiencing pain in my lower abdomen. We have decided some of the issues could be from bloating. I was asked to try the Low Fodmap diet. This diet can make certain people feel better. Please do your own research if you wan to know what the diet is.

This is not a lose weight diet. It is a way to restrict your eating so you can decide which foods make your body feel uncomfortable.

I recently went to Wegmans in State College PA to look for some items I can not find in other places. One thing they have their a Foddy foods. These are foods that are certified as low fodmap by Monash University.

Here are some shopping tips:

  1. Plan Ahead:

  2. Before heading to Wegmans, make a list of low FODMAP foods you need. This will help you stay focused and avoid impulse purchases. You can use their website.
  3. Know Your Labels:

  4. Familiarize yourself with the ingredients commonly found in high FODMAP foods. Look for products labeled "low FODMAP" or check the ingredients list for FODMAP-friendly options. This is basically looking at each ingredient. If they have "natural flavors" this is something you should be concerned about if you don't know what it is.

  5. Pick Up Staples:

  6. These are simple low Fodmap items you could find at any grocery store such as carrots, blueberries, strawberries, brown rice and eggs.
Hopefully Wegmans is another store to help you through your journey. What Low Fodmap food do you pick up at Wegmans?

 I posted this in a business class I am taking, and I thought I would share it here too.

Since this is an business class I would like to share all of my business. Ok that sounded funny. What I wanted to say was, I have been creating a company for over 12 years. I stayed at home with my kids while they grew up and slowly created a business. My main business now is publishing, But over the years I have tried online classes, selling items, and vlogging.
Things have changed. They took down my online classes because the quality was not good enough. I had 50 of them. They took down my blog because I violated their terms of services (still not sure what I did). I had a monetized YouTube channel but they changed the rules for that.
But I keep going and trying new things. Right now all of my books are on Amazon. If I violate their terms of service they could take it down at any time. I try not to do this but you never know. This is why I would like to have our books in more places.
I really like working with people around the world to create these books and I like creating products that I can sell.
When I was little my Mom did crafts shows. She did really well at them. I helped her every weekend and I think this gave me a better knowledge of the business world from real life experience. I now bring this to an online world.

Allergy Shots - Tips and Tricks

I have had allergies all of my life. I finally went to a allergist. They did a skin prick test and identified what I as allergic to. Dust, tress, grasses, and dogs. I always thought I was allergic to cat my entire life, but no, it is dogs. At the time when I found out we just got a new puppy. 

After adding nasal sprays, medicine, and eye drops, I decided to start allergy shots. These are regular injections of the things I am allergic to desensitize my immune system. I may have to do the shots for years but I am excited for the outcome. 

I go to the Dr. two times a week and get a shot in each arm. I then have to wait 30 minutes to make sure I don't have a large reaction. So far I have not. Here are some bits if you are getting allergy shots. Remember I am just a patient. 

  1. Stay Consistent:

  2. Attend all scheduled allergy shot appointments and follow the recommended injection schedule without missing doses. Consistency is key to achieving the desired therapeutic effects.
  3. Communicate with Your Allergist:

  4. If you experience any unusual or severe reactions after receiving allergy shots, inform your allergist immediately. They can adjust your treatment plan accordingly or provide additional guidance to manage your symptoms.

  5. Take your Medicine:

  6. They always ask me if I took my medicine before my shots.

  7. Be Patient:

  8. Allergy shots typically require time to achieve noticeable improvements in symptoms. It may take several months to a year before you start experiencing significant relief. Stay patient and committed to the treatment process.

  9. Wear a shirt you can take off easily:

  10. I get the shots in the back of my arm. Sometime sit is cold so I make sure I can take off my long sleeve shirt easily.

  11. Stay Hydrated:

  12. Drinking plenty of water before and after allergy shots can help minimize side effects and promote overall well-being.

  13. Plan Ahead:

  14. Schedule your allergy shot appointments at times that are convenient for you and fit into your daily routine. This can help ensure that you're able to adhere to your treatment plan without disruption.

Let me know if you have any other questions or tips for others going though this process.
