Welcome to my new website, Gluten Free Survivor. Like many of you, I was in complete shock when I was told that I would have to switch to a completely gluten-free lifestyle for the rest of my life. To be honest, I really didn't even know what gluten was exactly. To make matters even worse for me, I had limited experience in the kitchen. I was scared out of my mind!
I remember the first time I went to the grocery store after my diagnosis with Celiac Disease. A grocery trip that would have taken me less than an hour, took over two hours. And I left with little to nothing in my cart. With tears in my eyes from pure frustration, I went up and down each aisle flipping over boxes, cans, and bags to read the labels only to find out that there was gluten in it.
Now a year later, the experience of shopping in a store is so much easier. I now have my go to items and know that certain stores stock certain items. I am also contantly on the hunt for delicious, gluten-free recipes. I have found some amazing blogs and websites that are inspiring me to actually want to cook!
I am a gluten free survivor!! Thanks for visiting.
