Discover Gluten Freedom

Living with Celiac Disease, Gluten Intolerance or any other food intolerance or allergy does not have to be hard. You are already one step ahead and on your way to better health. Explore all your options and enjoy yourself along the way, experiment, try new things and have a little fun. With over thirteen years of re-learning how and what to eat, I found some pitfalls along the way. I am always exploring all my options and I hope I can help you find a happy and healthy lifestyle as well. I will bring you gluten free news, product reviews, cooking and lifestyle ideas to online episodes as well as other nibbles along the way.
