Eating Smart

Eating “gluten-free” may not be enough when it comes to your celiac disease. I discovered this the hard way after suffering for many years after my diagnosis, even though I was 100% GF. Feeling the same way? This section is for you.

Speaking “Free” with Jennifer Esposito

January 25, 2017 | 13 Comments

It’s no secret that I am not a fan of celiac bloggers who are essentially brand whores. Who get paid to constantly, and I mean constantly, promote products that may or may not have a celiac’s health in their best interest. To me, the […]

I've Also Got a Book

Who I am. And who I'm not.

Who I am. And who I'm not.

I AM someone who's been gluten-free since 2007 due to a diagnosis of severe celiac disease. I'm someone who can steer you in the right direction when it comes to going gluten-free. And I'm someone who will always give you the naked truth about going gluten free.

I AM NOT someone who embraces this gluten-free craziness. I didn’t find freedom, a better life or any of that other crap when I got diagnosed. With all due respect to Hunter S. Thompson, I found fear and loathing of an unknown world. But if I can share my wisdom, tell my stories and make the transition easier on you, I’ve done my job.
