My daughter was diagnosed at age of 9 with Celiac disease. When I took her to her regular annual check-up she was below the normal range for height and weight. Her doctor assumed the reason might be because she’s just on the petite side like me, but just to make sure she wanted some blood work done. It turned out that she tested positive for Celiac disease and then to make sure completely, she went for the endoscopy and that came back positive as well. I’m so grateful that her doctor caught it in time before it made anymore damage to her system. Her doctor really saved her life and I will be forever grateful. Under doctor’s orders, I took her to a nutritionist to learn about what she can and can’t eat. I was also recommended to take her to a gastroentologist every year for a check up.
Ever since then I spend most of my time making sure I provide her with food that not only is safe for her but tastes good as well. It has been a long journey for both of us in a different way. For her, she had to adjust to eating different foods and learn what ingredients to stay away from. My journey, is learning how to keep her safe while providing food that’s gluten free that she enjoys. I will be sharing recipes, my stuggles, school issues, dealing with the public, traveling and my daughter will be sharing her thoughts as well.
She will have a special section that your child can check out and share thoughts and experiences about living with Celiac disease.
My good friend Christa gave me the idea of starting my own blog about living gluten free and thought, why not?
When my daughter was first diagnosed, I was clueless about going gluten free. I had to educate myself and do a lot of research. What helped me a lot was reading about what other moms had to say, and then moving forward onto my own discoveries.
My blog is all about our thoughts, tastes, and personal experiences. Please leave a comment so I know that you’ve visited.:)
All recipes that I post are all made with gluten free ingredients.
