Celiac’s Disease – What Is IT? It is the intolerance of wheat and wheat products.
I can tell you from personal experience is so very hard to define and diagnose. Probably have had it for most of my life, but 6 years ago (after countless tests and many, many angst filled days) I was finally diagnosed. That single diagnosis changed my life forever and for GOOD.
Once I removed all wheat, rye, barley, semolina, etc. from my diet, I felt like a totally “new” person. The brain fog was gone, the aches and pains, the stomach issues, the overall yuckiness that I felt everyday seemingly disappeared. One day when I woke up, I could not believe that I felt as healthy as I was feeling then and everyday after. At first, I lost lots of weight (which I of course needed). Then, my smartass self decided I could conquer this “gluten free baking”!
So began my journey to make gluten free taste good!
After multiple searches on the internet, I bought breads, cakes, pastries, brownies, cookies, crackers and they all looked and tasted like crap! Remember, this was 6 years ago. Now the choices are better, but nothing like homemade. As I post, I will share what to buy and what not to buy. I can save you tons of $$$.
Thus, I hope as you use this website to cook gluten free you too will enjoy cooking, eating and savoring gluten free.
The BEST and most important advice I have learned is to – FOCUS ON WHAT YOU CAN HAVE AND NOT ON WHAT YOU CANNOT HAVE! That is my daily mantra.
Please feel free to print, copy and share my recipes. My intent here is to let you know you too can enjoy gluten free!
