Celiac Awareness Day

September 13th is National Celiac Awareness Day. Being gluten-free doesn’t have to be miserable and cooking gluten-free can be exciting and delicious.

It’s not the science that’s slacking, it’s the resources consumers use to buy food.  The tricky part is knowing where you can find GF ingredients conveniently and affordable.

Almost any food can be made in a gluten-free variation and it’s time to spread the word. Google, Pinterest, and any gluten-free cook books can help get you started and trigger new GF meal creations.

Focus on what you CAN eat!
