We are joined again by Alexandra "Lexie" Van Den Heuvel and talk about the growing, and very troubling trend of food allergy bullying. We also learn that the issues of peer pressure and bullying reach far beyond just school aged kids.
Alexandra Van Den Heuvel is one busy and impressive young woman. Seeing a need to help low income families affected by celiac disease to afford the increased grocery bills that accompany the gluten free diet, Lexie successfully started a non-profit. Oh, and did we mention that she began this group before she even set foot in High School? Amazing!
Mike and Cam have a casual discussion of Mike's spring break trip with his family to Mazatlan, Mexico. They talk about some of the challenges traveling abroad and some of the unexpected issues that popped up.
Mike and Cam are happy to be joined by celiac blogger Jessica Hanson. They discuss with Jessica what inspired her to become a blogger and talk about some of her great blog posts. We also find out what it's like to run the largest celiac and gluten free meetup in the world!
