Everyone that gets diagnosed with Celiac Disease or suddenly goes gluten-free always has to change there diet and lifestyle as soon as possible. But one thing that you may not be able to change if your living with someone else is their diet too. There's probably been times where you would get glutenous foods and gluten-free foods mixed up without really knowing it. You could always got the sharpie or pen route and just write "gluten-free" on all you food, but who wants to really do that? These awesome Gluten-free Labels are an easy way to label your food in a way where you can easily know which food is which and never have to worry about accidentally getting glutened again!
This Wednesday I decided to give you a video tutorial for an easy gluten-free after work out meal that I always make! It is also natural and dairy free as well. I pretty much cover everything you need to know on how to make this quick meal in the video, but I will post the recipe and directions below if as well. Hope you enjoy it!
For Celiac Awareness Month I happily got the opportunity to be one of the featured bloggers for the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness. If you haven't seen their awesome Fuel the Family Blogger Campaign there are so many different stories that really anyone can relate too.
A lot of these awesome stories in this campaign are from many of the great gluten-free bloggers and advocates in our community. I happily got to share my story and a few thing to help with Celiac diagnosis in your family as well. Thanks again to the NFCA for featuring my story and I hope you enjoy my post!
happy to be here writing a guest post for my friend, Taylor! Not sure if you've read the
wonderful and informative post he wrote for me a little while ago, Tips for Parenting a Child with Celiac Diseasefrom the perspective of a 15-year-old. Taylor and I met on-line
shortly after we both began our blogs. I often tell him how much he helps me as
well as so many other parents think about celiac disease through our children's
eyes. I always love to read his posts because I feel the perspective he
offers is incredible!
This week I did my video on Celiac Awareness. A lot of it had to do with how I felt about the gluten-free community lately and the advocacy that goes along with it. I'm just giving my opinion on what should be made aware during Celiac Disease Awareness Month other than Celiac Disease itself.
On May 5th, I was in Atlanta, Georgia for the Gluten & Allergen Free Wellness Event! I got to take on a lot of new things including public speaking and getting the feel for what I'm getting into. But I also got to meet a lot of great bloggers and try some awesome new products as well from a lot of different companies and bakeries! I got to experience this expo as my 2nd one ever and I definitely went home with enough food to last at least a month this time..
For my 4th What the Heck? Wednesday Video, I got the ingredient Citric Acid brought to me! This video wasn't too long but I pretty much covered everything important you need to know about the ingredient and listed some more info on it below. Oh and Happy Celiac Disease Awareness month everybody!
When I first started writing this post it was going to be about a healthy and possibly sugar free alternative to syrup. The only problem was that there were none. With my adrenal disorder I have to avoid almost any type of sugar so naturally I looked into sugar free syrups that I could possibly use. After reading the ingredients and trying to understand how they can even call some of these products syrup, I realized a much bigger problem. Most people look at products that say sugar, fat, or gluten-free and automatically go to the label..not the ingredients! Now a days they are trying to put these on everything and people think it's healthy! Some people may have educated themselves enough to know what I'll explain below, but I guarantee a majority of the average everyday citizens would not.
Hi I'm Taylor, a 16 year old with Celiac Disease and a rare type of Adrenal Disorder. My goal is to help educate parents, teens, and kids all about the gluten-free lifestyle to help make your lives a little easier. I'm just here to help, inspire, and show that living gluten-free doesn't have to be a hard thing!
