After numerous hospital stays, and finally being diagnosed in 2012 with a severe wheat allergy, I had to make what felt like huge adjustments to my eating and grooming habits in a short period of time. Unlike Celiac Disease, which is a challenging disorder at best, my reaction to wheat causes severe hives and an inability to breathe. Unfortunately, wheat is EVERYWHERE – foods, make-up, toothpaste, health & beauty aids!! The list is endless and the cost of gluten free products is outrageous. Since I personally like the unassisted intake of oxygen into my lungs, I must be diligent.
Therefore, after massive hours of research on the internet, tons of loose paper notes and notebook entries, I decided to get organized. People were asking where I found this recipe or that information, so I chose to organize through blogging. This way I can readily share items and articles that my friends and family may be interested in.
I am not a creative genius by any means – my scrapbooks look like a kindergarten class put them together. My landscape theme is The Nightmare Before Christmas – and I nailed it! I wholly acknowledge that this is a compilation from various websites and I will state the website address where I found the information on each posting. Hopefully you will find something beneficial to you.
And to my many friends and relatives on the grammar police payroll, I am usually enjoying a glass of pinot while blogging. So please cut me some slack.
