HOW TO USE THE TRACKER:
I’ve found documenting food allergies and intolerances to be a challenge. Here’s how I use this chart:
1. I record each food, drink or medication or supplement I take on a separate line.
2. I then record any related symptoms by coloring the circles and then “connecting the dots.”
