I'll never forget the day my husband came home to tell me that he was intolerant to a long list of foods.
"I can't eat anything," he said, feeling a little sorry for himself.
I didn't know what to do or say since I had just given birth to my son and my hands were full. Neither of us knew much about food intolerances, or how they differ from food allergies. Two years later, my husband can indeed eat food – and a good variety too – but it's prepared in a healthier way. We are also more aware of ingredients that go into everyday foods and choose products more carefully.
