Celiac Disease Awareness Day 9/13/13

Happy happy Freaky Friday! 🙂

Guess what day it is?? If you couldn’t tell from the title, it’s Celiac Disease Awareness Day!!

I have a little “thing” for Celiac Disease – I completed a Gluten Free on a Budget Project during my internship and ever since then I’ve had a fascination with celiac disease –  I think part of the reason is because it is a disease that is completely curable with food. Gluten free food that is.

I am so a dietitian… HA!1013450_506128736143470_1625741371_n

If you didn’t know: Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and causes issues with absorption of nutrients from food. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, and barley even in teeny tiny amounts. For more information on Celiac Disease – Please check out the website: Celiac Sprue Association.  Easy to understand information!

I thought to honor this day, I would put together a sampling of my favorite gluten free recipes and I’m being selfish today… they are all from ME! 🙂  Here are my top gluten free recipes 🙂  ENJOY!!
