I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in April 2010 after months of feeling exhausted, never getting over colds, continual sinus infections, daily debilitating headaches and sudden weight loss. I kept attributing it to having two kids back to back, being busy and being a mom.
After the diagnosis came the relief with knowing there was a reason for feeling badly all the time, but being completely petrified to put anything in my mouth. I stopped eating gluten the day of the diagnosis – as well as most everything else – until I could figure out what was safe.
I’ve always eaten healthy (seriously, to the point of coworkers and friends making fun of me) and been aware of nutrition labels, but this took reading labels to a new level.
I love food – especially great food, as well as travel and trying new cuisines. I spent many a fun happy hour enjoying fabulous food with dear friends. Dining out is one of my hobbies and favorite past times.
I aspire to continue enjoying amazing (gluten free) food by sharing my dining & cooking experiences, bringing good -and not so good – experiences to light, and by others sharing their experiences. I also enjoy helping others with the learning curve of going and staying gluten free.
