I am an architect living in Minneapolis who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 2 years ago. I also am a mother of two children, one of whom has Celiac Disease, as well. This blog is about all things related to navigating the many terrains of gluten-free living. I hope to share tips and experiences, post news and fun ideas, vent a little, and share anything else that has to do with this lifestyle that so many people are now living with.
This is intended to be a resource for both celiacs and those who come in contact with celiacs (AKA: everybody). It is hard to fully grasp “what the big deal is” with living gluten-free, so I will try and find ways to bridge the disconnect and create a better understanding of what is happening and why, and why the “what” and “why” are important. Additionally, it is important to understand that an adult celiac has an entirely different experience than a child with celiac, so I will do my best to help you (the reader) understand the differences and why that matters.
Most of all, I want this to be a place where you can get excited about food and social activities again, you can mope about and vent at the same time, and at the end of the day realize that if you have to be gluten-free, you are not alone.
