Our Mission

To inspire, encourage and provide for people top quality food and skin products that will help improve your health so that you feel good not only in your body, but in your mind and have the energy to create a beautiful life for yourself and your family.

We strongly believe that we shouldn’t be held back or miss out on life because of allergies and intolerances, tummy and skin upsets.

My Story

Hey there, my names Kellie and I (along with some brilliant helpers) created Dairy Free Store. Im a mum with two school aged kids, I’m also a long time sufferer of having an intolerance to cows milk and all the fun that comes with that including the upset and unpredictable tummy, the eczema and hayfever as well as the anxiety and just plain yuck feeling.

I love being active and enjoying my family time and I adore nature & the outdoors, but I do have to admit that over the years I haven’t been making the best of choices when it comes to my health. And I have absolutely found with the pressures of work and having kids and a husband away half the year, my health has been really sliding and it’s not great.

I’m tired, lethargic, just getting through the day, feeling crappy and generally not being who I want to be. And, I had enough. You see, things happened around us that really hit me with a sledge hammer, and I totally realised life is so damn short, and it goes so fast and all that time you wasted feeling crap you could have been out there working on your dreams, taking those adventures, creating those quality times with your kids, just loving life and appreciating all the beauty around you.

And that’s what led me here.

For me, I finally realised that I couldn’t control and be perfect at everything, and that’s okay! What I could do, though, is take some smaller steps and start by putting food in my body and using products on my skin that I knew will make me feel better. And once I start feeling better, then I can tackle the bigger things, and get back to loving and enjoying my world instead of just slogging through it!

The more I talked to those around me, and the more I researched, I realised how lots of us are feeling the same and facing similar issues. 

 

 

   What I found…

 

 

  • The number of children with a food allergy has increased dramatically in the last 10 years
  • Allergies to cow’s milk, eggs and peanuts are the most common in children
  • Lactose intolerance is on the rise in Australian Women

 

  • People suffering lactose intolerance are 72% more likely to get osteoporosis, 212% vitamin deficiency  & 421% more likely to suffer from digestive problems
  • 1 in 6 Australian are choosing to go dairy free
  • 25% of millienials in US are choosing to go vegan

So that’s what made me want to open up Dairy Free Store, I want to inspire and encourage and help everyone, along with myself and my own family, to eat good natural food, feel healthy inside and out and to live an amazing, incredible and beautiful life.

Don’t stay feeling yuck and awful and unmotivated – come with us on our journey!
