After my last post, I got to thinking about how I haven't explained with any specifics my eating habits/situation. Yes, I have Celiac Disease, and yes, I have to maintain a gluten free diet, but those things mean different things for different people. I am fortunate in the fact that I am not as sick as some if I accidentally ingest gluten. I know there are Celiacs out there that get very, very ill if they accidentally ingest even a breadcrumb, or they encounter the slightest cross-contamination...and I feel for you. I can't imagine what that must be like.
That being said, my gluten free diet isn't as strict. I still eat things that "may have been processed in a facility that also processes wheat" and I eat oats. Heresy? Maybe. But I feel great and it works for me. I plan to post things that make me (and my tummy) happy, and hopefully they will work for others, including the ones following super-sensitive diets. Just please know I'm not trying to offend or come across lackadaisical in my treatment of the gluten-free lifestyle. :)
I love food! I love learning about food, eating food, cooking food, baking food, looking at food, watching food on tv (Food Network is my favorite) and talking about food. Mmm. On to that.
