For a while, I was hesitant to order because I was under the assumption that the Daily Harvest products contained nuts or at least had a high risk for cross contamination.

I'm proud of myself for writing this, and I hope that my words inspire others to share their stories, overcome the challenges they face daily and start the conversations that are hard but IMPORTANT to have.***
