Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics (AANMA)

Meet Chef Michelle, AANMA’s resident food guru!

Preparing nutritious, inspired meals and snacks for your family can be enough of a challenge without throwing food allergies into the equation. Chef Michelle Austin brings imagination and a passion for healthy eating to the menus and recipes she creates for Allergy & Asthma Today‘s “All in Good Taste” column. Every recipe includes substitutes for ingredients that you or your loved ones might be allergic to.

AAT’s Editorial Advisory Board has reviewed all of these recipes (click here to meet our 2010 medical editors).

Michelle is founder of On Thyme Consulting, co-owner of Just to Please You Productions and has been a co-contributor to SOBeFiT magazine. All menu concepts and recipes are prepared by Michelle exclusively for Allergy & Asthma Today.
