Proof that if he wanted to, he would. 👏👏 And in my defense, I did include I had celiac / was gluten free on all my online dating apps so he was warned. 🤣🤷‍♀️ We tried @marcoscoalfired in Denver for the first time earlier this year and since then, our trips to Denver from Colorado Springs have been muuuuch more common. 😂 Marcos has a separate oven and prep area for gluten free orders, and uses gluten-removed wheat starch from Italy (celiac safe but not safe for wheat allergies) for their fluffy gf pizza. 👌 What’s the furtherest you drive regularly for good gluten free food? Or how does your partner or family help make life a little easier with celiac?

If you’ve ever been taken less seriously because celiac isn’t anaphylactic or “visible”…you’re not alone. 🙃🫶 And imo, one of the best gifts a celiac or gluten free eater could receive is not being judged for: 👉 What we do and don’t feel safe eating (even if you know someone else with celiac/gluten sensitivity who was “fine” eating it) 👉 What precautions we take /request when eating out — and if we feel comfortable going to a restaurant in the first place 🤷‍♀️ 👉 How we explain our dietary needs to others (ex: saying “gluten allergy” when ordering at a restaurant with celiac cuz allergies are often more widely understood/respected) 👉 Who we feel comfortable trusting to cook for us (or not trusting anyone else at all 🤷‍♀️) And cuz I know some are going to say celiacs shouldn’t eat out if they can’t trust workers to not make them sick…we don’t just walk into any restaurant and demand gf options. 🙄 We often spend hours researching safe places, or are put in situations where we don’t choose the restaurant and need to make the best of it. 🤷‍♀️ And we have the right to ask for simple accommodations like changing gloves or getting fresh ingredients from the back that allow us to eat safely at restaurants (especially if this restaurant promotes gf options in the first place)‼️ Because we are also humans with busy lives…and sometimes we just don’t have time or energy to prep every single thing we eat. 🤷‍♀️ What would you add to your gluten free 2024 wishlist? Or have you ever been judged for the precautions you need to take to eat safely? 🤔👇 Video inspired by real events (AKA, an ex’s toxic mom who said I was being “extra” when asking for a dedicated fryer, separate prep area, etc for my gluten free order at the restaurant dinner she wanted 🙄🤦‍♀️). . . . . . #glutenfree #glutenfreegirl #celiacdisease #celiac #celiacdiseaseawareness #celiacdiet #glutenfreelifestyle #glutenallergy #glutenintolerance #glutenfreedinner #glutenfreemeals #glutenanddairyfree #celiaclife #glutenfreefamily #foodallergyawareness #nogluten #foodallergylife #glutensensitivity #coeliacawareness #celiachia #glutenfreerestaurants

Did you know that in the US, foods with barley malt contain gluten but NOT wheat — so they won’t have a “contains wheat” warning⁉️ Merry Christmas to all who celebrate. 🫶 And friendly reminder to double check any candy/drinks/etc you may receive over the holidays for 👉 wheat, barley, rye, spelt (and oats generally unless certified GF / purity protocol)! 👈 Some examples of foods that appear gluten free but actually aren’t because of malt 👇 🍫 Truffles, Milky Way, Crunch Chocolate, etc. “Crispy rice” often indicates malted rice as an FYI. 🍋🍸 Malt beverages like this Smirnoff Iced Pink Lemonade. It’s GF in other countries but contains malt in the US & France. Smirnoff’s website only states Smirnoff Vodka is gluten free in the US 😋 Rice Crispy Treats 🚨 Please share this post if you know someone gluten free who may make this easy mistake. 🙏 And you can find tons of gluten free product reviews & round ups on my page @collegeceliackc! 🥰 Including swaps for ALL these like @scharglutenfree Certified GF truffles, Certified GF rice crispy treats from @blakesseedbased or @walmart’s great value brand, etc! 😋 I hope you have an amazing Christmas with plenty of yummy gf treats. 🫶 I’m so grateful for every one of you, and so appreciate the sweet holiday DMs I’ve gotten over the last few days. 🥹 . . . . . #glutenfreefoods #glutened #celiacs #glutenfreekids #glutenfreeliving #glutenintolerant #glutenallergy #glutenfreeproblems #celiacliving #celiacfood #gluten #celiacdiseasewarrior #glutenfreediet #celiacawareness #celiacdiet #glutenfreeproblems #celiac #maltbeverage #glutenfreeblog #glutenfreeeats #glutenfreedessert #gfdiet #glutenfreechocolate

If you have celiac or need to eat gluten free and can get sick from cross contamination — and especially if you’re going to any holiday parties this weekend 🎄— you can prob relate. 🤣😅🫣 That’s why I’ll honestly load up my plate immediately when food is served (if I’m even eating any of the food at the party anyway 🤷‍♀️) so I don’t have to worry about watching for any cross contact issues that happen later on. 😅 And if you are doing any gluten & gluten free Christmas meals, highly recommend serving yourself FIRST so if anyone puts a gluteny spoon into a gluten free dish, you already got your fill! 👌 Do you usually bring your own food, eat before/after or serve yourself first at any social events or parties with food?? 🤔 Or what yummy gf foods are you looking forward to this holiday weekend??

Did you know all these @reeses cups are labeled gluten free on the back⁉️ Including their NEW Caramel Reese’s now at stores nationwide! 😋 Here’s my breakdown of all 3 👇 🤤🍫 Caramel — lots of caramel (more than I expected!) and good pb to caramel ratio. I like better than regular Reese’s but miss some crunch…would be a 10/10 if gf pretzels or potato chips were added. 8.2/10 now. 🥨🍫 Pretzel — lots of crunchy pretzel pieces throughout, and it gets extra points for being a rare flavor to find gluten free. 8.7/10. 🥣🍫 Reese’s Puffs — love the crunchy puffs throughout and the nostalgia factor. 7.9/10 (Note: the cereal itself has no gluten ingredients but is not labeled gf, compared to the candy. So if you feel comfy eating the cereal on its own is up to you). What’s a food that surprised you by being gluten free — or which @reeses flavor are you most excited to try? 🤔👇 PS — find even more gluten free product recc’s, taste tests, restaurant reviews and more at @collegeceliackc on TikTok & IG. 🥰 . . . . . #glutenfreeeating #glutenfreesweets #glutenfreelife #glutenfreefoodie #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreediet #celiacfood #gffoodie #glutenfreefoods #nowheat #glutenallergy #noglutennoproblem #glutenintolerant #newproductalert #glutenfreepretzels #celiacdiet #celiac #glutenfreechocolate #glutenfree #glutenfreeproducts #gffoodie

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.
