celiac disease awareness...


Last week was Celiac Disease Awareness Week.
Evidently, I missed blogging about it.

Although I have never been "officially" diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I am totally gluten-free and have been for the past 5 years, long before it was popular or gluten-free foods were easy to find.
I tried a gluten-free diet after doing a lot of research on my own health issues I was dealing with. Sometimes we can be our best health advocates.

Becoming gluten-free was hard.
My body went through withdraws and all I wanted was a glazed doughnut for about a week.
Now if I eat anything with gluten, I get extremely ill.

Have a Marvelous Monday!

Hey There Robin,

You are absolutely correct!! Sometimes we are our very best health advocates!! Don't know how many times we have done the very same thing not only for ourselves, but for our pug, too! That's when its great to have the internet!!

It is wonderful that today we do have lots of gluten free options!

Glad to hear that you stick to your gluten free choices!! Besides, donuts aren't what their cracked up to be!! :o) I'm sure you have found a new awesome goodie as a substitute, right?

Have a fun week!

Joan
We are not totally gluten free, but we make healthier food choices now and honestly...feel much better mentally and physically, too!

Thanks for this. One of my customers has celiac disease. We are always trying to find things we can keep in the store for him.

I think it would be very hard to go gluten free. Bravo to you for doing it and sticking to it!

Blessings, Viv

Thank you for sharing this! Avoiding gluten must have been pretty hard at the beginning! I remember reading somewhere about unexpected foods that contain gluten, like some sausages and pickles. Also, that a gluten-free diet might be low in fiber and other nutrients, so you have to pick your foods carefully. Thumbs up for having the discipline!

I have been gluten free for about a year now not realizing that I was sensitive to gluten. I actually just thought I had a sensitive stomach for the past 20 years! I am continually learning new recipes and don't feel deprived at all. The Gluten Free Goddess website has been very helpful for me. I am stopping by from Stacy's blog. Your bags are fabulous!

Our close friend's son has both celiac disease & diabetes--a real challenge when he comes over on holidays. Glad there are more and more stores stocking gluten free choices, but it is a shame that the prices are generally higher.

Thanks for sharing this information my friend! I am proud of you for being on a gluten free diet for so long! I am not on a gluten free diet, but I do eat gluten free food! Big Hugs ;o)
