About CGRI

I am a biopsy-diagnosed Celiac with an affinity for cats and an irrational fear of clowns. CeliacGirlRI is my attempt to share what I have learned about Celiac disease and non-Celiac gluten sensitivity in the hopes that it will help others avoid the sometimes intimidating learning curve of the gluten-free lifestyle.

I am a firm believer in eating as close to homegrown and natural as you can, avoiding gluten by eating good, wholesome healthy food. That being said, I also believe in balance and moderation, and I've rarely met a cupcake I didn't love.

CGRI is my way of helping people with gluten issues to love their food again, to consume it safely and reclaim their life. Celiac disease may be a life sentence, but we get to choose what kind of life we want to lead, not our disease. Choose health and happiness. Choose hope.

Long live gluten-free.
