weeklymenuplan-small

  Like my new menu plan badge?  My very talented friend Alexa from Lexie’s Kitchen designed it for me (thanks Lexie)!  If you haven’t yet “met” Alexa, you really should stop by her blog, especially if you are on a gluten free/casein free diet.  I have made several of Lexie’s recipes over the past year […]

Dermatitis Herpetiformis and other “Atypical” Symptoms of Gluten Sensitivity

Dermatitis_herpetiformis_2_high

As Celiac Disease Awareness Month comes to a close, I thought I would share more of my personal story.  I have been meaning to do this for a long time but I will be honest, taking myself back in time is emotionally difficult for me.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to […]

mealplanmonday_v1

It’s going to be another crazy week for me as I prepare to leave for Chicago on Thursday to attend the Gluten and Allergen Free Expo. This will be the first time that I’ve left my brood since embarking on “Operation Leaky Gut” and I have to admit that I’m a little nervous as to […]

IFBC collage

I recently returned home from a fantastic weekend in Seattle, where I attended the International Food Bloggers Conference. The conference was co-hosted by Foodista and Zephyr Adventures, and while there were many great moments over the weekend, I will just share a few of my personal highlights today (sorry this is going up so late, […]

I am really excited to finally be participating in my first “Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger” event! The Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger program was started by Sea of Book of Yum, in 2008.  This is a great way to get to know gluten-free bloggers by trying some of their recipes!

Celiac Disease and Fertility/Reproductive Health Issues

Over the past weekend, I found myself in a social setting with several obstetricians and I thought it would be a great opportunity to talk about celiac disease.  Parties are wonderful for launching conversation about gluten sensitivity because it is pretty darn obvious that something is different when you show up with your own gluten-free […]

I’m sorry this is going up so late in the day, but I had an unexpected trip to the pediatrician today, Luke has pink eye, in both eyes!  Adding to the fun was a two hour wait at the pharmacy for eye drops!!  Is it just me, or do you ever wonder why it takes […]

Understanding Conflicting Celiac Test Results

samkelly_lab1

I want to do a followup on a recent post I made where I shared some of my own gluten sensitivity journey, including some of my son’s.  Toward the middle of this post there is some important information regarding the interpretation of intestinal biopsies that I urge you to read. I had Sam first tested […]

JASON Kids Only! Gluten Free Toothpaste

A recent funny post that Kim made over at Gluten-Free Is Life, titled “True Blogger Confessions,” got me to thinking about GF dental products, so I wanted to share the brand of toothpaste that I buy for my boys.  JASON Kids Only! is an all-natural line of products that are specifically designed for children. The […]

Rainbow Chard Sauteed with Mushooms

Rainbow Chard

Some time ago, I made a conscious decision to further transform how I eat and to expose my children to more naturally gluten-free foods, like fresh vegetables. It’s amazing how a naturally gluten-free diet is so much easier on your pocketbook! Fruits and veggies have always been a part of our diet, but probably not […]
