Happily Gluten Free

I dont usually make it a habit to photograph my groceries... but today as I was unloading my bags from Trader Joes and Lassens I was trying to come up with an idea for Marvelous Monday.  It was staring me right in the face!  This is what I am thankful for!

Ten years ago when I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, there was no such thing as gluten free labeling, waiters and waitresses looked at me like I was from another planet, and the closest thing I got to bread or crackers was something resembling cardboard.  Today, awareness of Celiac Disease is much greater and many companies are making wonderful and delicious gluten free foods.  I also feel very lucky to live in Southern California, where every diet is accepted and the majority of restaurants are familiar with our needs! 
So, in the spirit of looking at the positives in life rather than the negatives, I am thankful that living and coping with Celiac Disease today is such a delight and pleasure with so many products to choose from. 

Thank you Rachel for helping me remember this today on Marvelous Monday!


  1. I am very happy they have all these cool things out there for you and Lucas!! I see it all the time "gluten" free and think of you!!
