Gluten Confusion at the Hospital

August 29, 2016

You’d think hospitals would be among the safest places for gluten-free patients. Think again, my friends. It turns out *gasp* some hospitals are not particularly good at providing gluten-free options to celiac and gluten intolerant patients.

The face of celiac disease

March 31, 2015
After putting some thought into it, I've determined I'm the face of celiac disease. And so are you (if you have celiac disease, of course). My point is, celiac disease has many faces. You can't look at someone and tell they have celiac disease, which can be a blessing or a curse. Sometimes, if people can't see your disease, its not real to them.. read more

Why my dog eats gluten-free dog food

March 26, 2015
You may recall me mentioning my first born, Rue, a time or two. (Rue is our dog.) Believe it or not, her first birthday is coming up on April 2. Time really does fly by as a parent. Why, you might ask, am I writing about my dog on a gluten-free blog? read more

Why I adore the gluten-free trend.

August 28, 2014
I love the gluten-free trend. I said it. And I mean it. However, it seems most people with celiac disease don't agree. I've read post, after post, after post (you get the point) about why the gluten-free fad is bad. Though I highly respect all of these bloggers and their opinions, I could not disagree more. read more

If you haven't seen it yet, I posted a picture this week on several of my social media accounts that is very important to me. Since the day I was diagnosed with celiac disease, I've been wanting my immediate family members to get tested, because they have up to a 22% chance of having the disease. So far, none of my family members have gotten tested. My mom has tried a gluten-free diet for several weeks without experiencing any differences, so I think she is probably in the clear.

What My 2014 Will Look Like

January 6, 2014
There's been a lot of talk about new year's resolutions lately. On New Year's Eve, one of my best friends asked me what my resolutions are for the year. I thought about it for a minute, and then realized that I didn't really have any. Yet. I hadn't thought much about it. After considering it a little longer, I decided that this year I don't want to have resolutions, but instead, I want to set goals.

Tell Me You’re Proud

December 27, 2013
I've been debating whether or not to write this post for a while now. I guess I decided to go for it, even though I'm not 100% convinced it's a good idea as I sit here typing. A little over a week ago, I experienced my first mental breakdown concerning my gluten-free lifestyle. It was very surprising to me, because I didn't even get emotional the day I was diagnosed with celiac disease. I'm not sure why or how, but the reality of my disease hit me like a ton of bricks. I started crying, and then I cried myself straight to sleep.
