Welcome to the gluten-free world!

No matter why you’re here or how much you already know about the gluten-free lifestyle, my goal is to help you love this way of living as much as I do. When I say I’m glad to be gluten-free, I truly mean it! Sure, it took me a while to get here and I had a lot of trouble with doctors – and ate a lot of bad tasting food in the process. However, today I love my life (and diet) more than ever and I certainly eat better food than I did when I was a glutenoid!

Many people have told me that if I could bottle up my enthusiasm about living gluten-free and sell it, I’d make a fortune. Since I don’t know a way to bottle an attitude, I instead focus on working with others in the gluten-free community to change things in this gluten filled world of ours. Thanks for sharing the crazy gluten-free journey with me. Together we really can make a difference!


  1. Hi there! I just wanted to say that I really admire what you are doing. Your insight and expertise has made life so much easier for a novice like me!

    You've even inspired me to start my own blog:

    Thank you again and please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you mold Atlanta into a more gfree friendly city!

  2. Hi Jeanette! Thanks so much for the kind words....they mean a lot to me. Anytime you want to include a teaser of on of my Examiner articles on your blog (with a link to the page) it would be greatly appreciated!

    You and everyone else can make a difference in so many ways. Ask your favorite restaurants if they have a gluten free menu even when you know they don't. People have to hear things over and over before they realize there is a need for them to cater to us. We will never be able to walk into any random restaurant and be handed a gf menu but we should not be limited to less than 1% of all restaurants out there. We have to work together to affect change and one day we'll all sit back and recall how our bread used to be kept in the!

    Have a great weekend!

Being gluten-free can still be challenging at times

After being gluten-free for over a decade, one would think there's nothing that would throw me.  From weddings to funerals to holiday pa...
