This month marks the eighth year of my celiac diagnosis. It’s also Celiac Awareness Month, AKA the perfect time to touch on the subject.
When I was diagnosed in 2008 I never could have foreseen the crazy trend that is now gluten-free food. Regardless of the motive (celiac, gluten sensitivity, health “fad”), the fact that “gluten-free” is (mostly) a mainstream term today has proven very beneficial for me. While there is always room for improvement, I think it’s important to acknowledge the progress that has been made for those living with celiac. Just think: there are now 100% gluten-free restaurants in this world. That still blows my mind.
To “celebrate” Celiac Awareness Month I rounded up some of my celiac and gluten-free related posts. Actually, the majority of these posts were published within the first few months of my blog and needed some major love anyway. I didn’t change the content, just a few pictures and type formatting. I also went through for typos because these posts were written before I learned about the spellcheck plugins. Yikes.
Sometimes I forget I have celiac because so much of the GF lifestyle is natural to me now. Cleaning the counter before cooking and reading ingredient labels are reflexes. If anything it has taught me to treat my body with TLC, and for that I’m grateful.
With that, here are some celiac posts you might have missed:
