If you’re gluten free and your partner eats gluten, plz tell me I’m not the only one who does this. 😂 My justification is that I’m gonna be jealous unless I have a celiac safe alternative to enjoy at the same time…and ngl, this strategy works great for us, especially during vacation when my bf is eating more gluten than he usually does (our home is 90% GF).

These Gluten Free & Dairy Free “Meatball” Garlic Bread Sliders — made with @bigmountainfoods plant-based sausage now at @sprouts‼️ — are my family’s new fave football app. 🤤 (AD) The gluten free breadstick slices get crispy on the edges and soft in the middle, and the “meatballs” are tender and topped with lots of gooey vegan cheese. 😋 Plus, @bigmountainfoods plant-based products are super allergy friendly and I wouldn’t have guessed these sausages were vegan without seeing the box! 🤯👏 To make this easy 30-min meal or appetizer 👇 Cut 2 small gluten free and vegan baguettes 🥖 into slices and coat each with vegan butter mixture (1/3 cup melted vegan butter 🧈, 1 TBSP garlic infused olive oil or garlic paste, and 1/4 cup vegan Parmesan). Bake at 400 for 8 minutes. While they bake, warm your @bigmountainfoods sausages in a pan on medium heat for ~5 mins and chop up into 1/2-1 inch pieces. Mix with 1/2 jar tomato 🍅 sauce. Set aside, and push down the middle of each crispy garlic bread slice to create “boats” for you to spoon the sausage mix into. Top the loaded boats with Italian seasoning and vegan cheese slices, and bake at 400 for another 5 minutes, or until cheese melts. Let cool slightly and dig in. 🤌 What’s your fave easy meal or appetizer for football season or a lazy, cozy night in?

Who else has exchanged product recc’s and words of wisdom in the mini gluten free aisle at Walmart? 🤣😅🙋‍♀️ But really — to anyone new to eating gluten free or living with celiac, it does get easier with time, practice and finding gluten free products you actually enjoy. 🫶 So be patient, let yourself grieve the foods and freedom you lost, and know it will be worth feeling better! ❤️ And on the topic of gluten free groceries, what’s your fave grocery store? Sprouts, Walmart, Costco, Whole Foods, and Target are a few of mine (and I have store round ups & reviews for all of the above on my page, @collegeceliackc ☺️).

Have you had similar niche conversations no one else would understand with your friends/family/partner? 😅🤣 Or what are small things you partner / housemates do to help you stay safe with celiac? 🤔👇 Some celiacs have 100% GF kitchens and that’s an amazing option if that works for you! 🫶 We keep ours 90% gluten free but treats / take out usually involve gluten for him. And that works great for us because, as this TikTok trend would say, my bf is “cooked” in celiac knowledge 🤣 and careful with crumbs / cross contact risks and we both communicate. Like asking what pots/pans/cooking equipment is good to use with gluten, etc. 🤷‍♀️And since wood utensils / cutting boards of any kind are actually at higher-risk of gluten hiding in any cuts or porous areas, we keep ours 100% GF except for disposable options like these chopsticks! Is there a food you never ate pre-celiac but wish you had? I’d never tried sushi pre-celiac and def regret not eating all the tempura while I could. 😅🫠🙃 PS — find even more celiac humor, gluten free product recc’s and reviews, #glutenfreelife #glutenfreeproblems #glutenintolerance #celiacdisease #glutenfree #celiacsofig #glutenfreefood #glutenfreegirl #relationshipmemes #zerogluten #someonescookedhere #foodallergies #foodallergyawareness #celiac #glutenfreeliving #celiaclife #celiacdisease #glutenfreedinner #glutenfreefollowme #celiacdiseaseawareness

What’s the funniest food someone has thought you can/can’t eat on a gluten free diet? 😅🤣 And does your restaurant anxiety also get a million times worse when this happens? 🙃 When I was a newly diagnosed celiac in high school / early college…this was me ALL THE TIME. 😅😫 I’d end up going to random places with friends, and I was so new to eating gluten free, I didn’t know everything to say or have the confidence to even say it. 🫠 (Cue: getting glutened on my very first date 🤦‍♀️). So here’s a friendly reminder to: ✅ (If possible) call ahead and/or read reviews of the restaurant’s celiac-friendliness (on yelp, @spokininc, @findmeglutenfree, @glutendudeapp, etc) ✅ Bring celiac restaurant cards (like the free ones from if needed ✅ Remember that you can always choose to leave or just not order food (why I always recommend keeping snacks in your bag as a back-up!) ✅ Know it’s possible to make friends who will WANT to let you choose the place…but that I also have some of my favorite memories from hang-outs I brought my own food to. 🤷‍♀️ What’s a really good (or really bad, or you need to vent 😅) gluten free restaurant experience you’ve had lately? 🤔👇 I’ve decided the Turkey & Provolone Gluten Free Sandwich at @jerseymikes is my new go-to order. 😋 . . . . #gluten #glutenfreeproblems #celiacproblems #celiacdisease #celiacs #glutenfreelife #celiaclife #eatingoutglutenfree #ibslife #stomachproblems #jenniferlawrence #celiacdiseaseawareness #coeliac #wheatallergy #glutenintolerance #glutenfreefamily #glutenfreemeals #glutenfreerestaurant #glutenfreeeats #glutenfreefoodie #glutenfreedinner #glutenfreegirl

5 Common Mistakes to Avoid When First Going Gluten Free

When you get a celiac diagnosis and need to go gluten free, changing your entire diet can feel overwhelming - especially if your health is suffering due to celiac disease symptoms. So to help any of celiac newbies or new gluten free eaters, I’m sharing five common mistakes I often hear about when people go gluten free. And if you are still feeling worse after eating gluten free for a few weeks or months, that is definitely a sign to NOT make mistake #4... Going Gluten Free, Many in the gluten free and celiac community advocate for people just going gluten free to stick to naturally gluten free foods, and this does have its benefits.

Gluten Free Vegan Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

So when I had some extra beans on my hands thanks to 8 Track Foods, I decided to finally experiment with using black beans in vegan chocolate chip cookies. How to Make Your Vegan Double Chocolate Chip Cookies with Black Beans Pour the black bean puree in with your vegan egg, and then add all of the other ingredients, including a handful of chocolate chips. To help the cookies bake optimally, use your tablespoon to slightly flatten/spread out the batter of each cookie (compared to leaving the batter as scooped balls in the tray).Finally, pop your trays in the oven for around 18-20 minutes. These cookies will not rise very much because of the lack of egg and flour, but they will spread out and puff up some!Lately, I’ve been loving these gluten free double chocolate chip cookies with yogurt, nut butter and berries as a sweet late-night snack.

Tell Me You Have a Chronic Illness...Without Telling Me You Have a Chronic Illness

And if you're dating someone chronically ill or have chronically ill friends or loved ones, here's the "why" behind some of our stranger behavior! You worry that new friends may think you're flaky since they don't understand why you need to cancel plans last-minute. Your friends and family know "special" terms like "flare up," "glutened," or "low on spoons. Friends or family ask you for medical advice before they ask their doctor.
