If you’ve read my previous posts, you’ll know that I’m allergic to gluten and I’ve been aware of the fact that I have celiac disease for about 5 years now. That means no spaghetti, no pizza, no bread!
It’s limited my life in what I can eat, but at the same time has opened me up to so many different foods I never would have thought of! Gluten free for me doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to mimic regular gluten foods perfectly, I love getting creative with my recipes and natural ingredients to make tasty alternatives that are chemical free AND healthy. I’m trying to live my best life with no GMOs, gluten, or chemicals, girl!
May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month and my time to shine!
This month is all about the learning and spreading of knowledge of what Celiac is. It’s been working for sure, although sometimes obnoxious, the “gluten-free trend” community has really made it easier for me to eat in normal restaurants and not be terrified about getting sick.
This disease can be hard to live with, but it makes me eat and think more creatively about my food and what I put into my body. I literally just made a batch of gluten-free banana bread that tastes even better than the real thing. I have also really got into baking my own bread! I also love my tasty zucchini noodles and quinoa.
This disease has taught me to creative and love the situations that I’m in, because sometimes they can change my life for the better.
