I am guest blogging at Corporette today on the topic of managing dietary restrictions with the demands on being a professional woman. Learning that certain foods are off-limits, whether because of Celiac disease, other autoimmune conditions, food allergies, food intolerances or sensitivities, means a lifestyle change that takes adjustment. This includes adjustments in all interactions around food, whether it be with family, friends, co-workers, and a host of other situations. When I learned I could not eat gluten, dairy, eggs and a several other foods, I was concerned about how to manage these new restrictions in all aspects of my life, but most particularly with regards to my professional life. As an associate at a law firm in Washington, DC, I was acutely aware that business entertaining was only going to be a larger part of my life moving forward, as would business travel and conferences. It has been a couple of years now, and along the way it has gotten a lot easier, so I am sharing some tips today at Corporette.
If you are visiting my blog for the first time, welcome! You can read more about me on my About page. I am passionate about thriving in all aspects of life. For me that means working long hours as an attorney in private practice and strategizing to balance the demands of my job with my interests in food, healthy and mindful living, and my love for lists and planning. I write a lunchbox series and generally share tips on how I manage to prioritize things that helps me feel my best despite a busy work schedule, but also like to share some fun things in my life.
