By Jane Anderson:

Following the gluten-free diet can seem overwhelming, especially if you’re newly diagnosed but even if you’ve been doing it for awhile. I’m constantly finding new places gluten can hide. If you have celiac disease, you have no choice – you must be vigilant about your diet, because your health depends on it. But I’ve also learned that it’s possible to eat well and live very well (and not obsess about food constantly) if you have celiac disease. My goal is to help you get healthy and live well, too.
