Introduction

I know, I know... you're thinking, what kind of topic is this???

I have Celiac Disease. I can't eat gluten, which translates to no wheat, barley or rye, and only certified GF Oats. Only because I can tolerate them, not all Celiacs can. I also am allergic to egg whites, and cannot eat dairy products. Despite all of this, I eat some amazing foods.

Which leads me to why I started this blog. I talk to so many people with GI disorders, who are offered nothing by way of what foods are helpful or harmful. I have spent the past year studying what foods to avoid for what problems, looking into different diets that are supposed to be healing, and the like. It only made sense to me to try to reach out and help others. So, please, leave comments. Ask questions...

I'll be exploring different disorders, not just Celiac, and sharing with you my knowledge to help you improve your health. I'll also share tasty recipes I come across; don't worry, they'll be tested and approved! Living without certain foods can be tricky, but not knowing that you can affect your overall health by your food is just downright frustrating.

So, here we go!! Until next time...

The good news is that I can :)
But the bad news is that it's pretty limited.
But some is better than none. ;)
