Welcome and a brief introduction

Hi! I go by many names and chose Corn-Free Hippie because I am a holistically minded mama raising mini foodies with various food allergies and a polyglot professor with interests ranging from literature, to creative writing, to cultural production to food history who lives with allergies.  My mother used to say that with one’s health, one has everything and so I grew up believing that with Saúde (health) one could cultivate Paz (peace) and Amor (love) thereby living the S.P.A. Life.

Thanks for stopping by and welcome to my blog. In future posts, I will share some musings leading up to our contemporary and allergy friendly Samhain / Halloween / Día de los Muertos celebration so that our homeschooled mini foodies can experience the seasonal celebrations in a safe environment with other food allergic and non allergic friends.

Saúde, paz, amor!
