When I was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I felt like I'd been turned upside down and dumped in the middle of nowhere all alone...I was lost. Even though more people are being diagnosed with gluten intolerances and sensitivities, it seems even doctors don't know that much about it. Mine, as wonderful as he is, had very little advice to give. He just told me it'd be a huge lifestyle change, that there was lots of info on the web, and that I couldn't have fried chicken or beer...(I now know there is so much more to living gluten free...)
Anyway, after three days of sobbing over the unknown, I picked myself up and starting combing the internet for anything I could find on Celiac Disease and the gluten-free diet. One of the first blogs I stumbled upon was adventuresofaglutenfreemom.com/ Heidi even listed her email address. Desperate to talk to someone, I sent a letter to this gluten free mom, pouring out all my feelings and fears. I was shocked when I actually received a reply! Heidi's blog made going gluten free seem doable and not so scary.
The more I searched, the more blogs I found; a huge community of gluten free bloggers... And I can say they really were and still are lifesavers for me on this gluten-free journey! I started accumulating so many great recipes and info from so many different sites, that I needed a place to keep it all together.... and that's why I started this blog, that hopefully helps someone else along the way too!
celiact.com has created a list of their top 30 gluten free blogs. There are some of my favorites on it. There are also so many more great blogs that didn't make this list. Check these out!
