I am beyond honored to announce I have been nominated for multiple awards in the 10th Annual WEGO Health Awards including “Advocating for Another,” “Lifetime Achievement Award” and “Best Team Performance.” (I have also been nominated for Best in Show: Podcast, but I don’t have a podcast. Maybe this is a hint to start one?!) This is an especially meaningful nomination since I have been involved with WEGO Health for more than 10 years now!Continue reading “Gluten-Free Globetrotter WEGO Health Awards 2021 Nominee”
As of today, I have officially been living with celiac disease and eating gluten-free for forty years.
YES, you read that correctly… FORTY YEARS.
“But how, you don’t look a day over 29?” I know, right?
But all joking aside, I use July 9, 1981 as my celiac anniversary because I have the medical records to prove it. When my mother sold my childhood home seven years ago, I came across my pediatric medical records which was basically as thick as a phone book. (Remember those?)
As I flipped through my medical records, two entries that stopped me in my tracks.
7/9/81: Dx celiac
7/17/81: Most likely celiac disease, responding well to gluten free diet
Join me Saturday, September 26th at 11am ET for my “Living Life to the Fullest with Celiac Disease” at the first ever online Nourished Festival. Despite COVID cancelling all in-person Nourished Festivals this year, this online event is free to attend and international! Not in the United States? No problem. All you need is an email address. Not in my time zone? No problem either! All of these sessions are being recorded so if you cannot join live, you can watch at your convenience.
If this isn’t a sign of the current state of the world, I don’t know what is?! It may be crazy times but there is no reason to stop educating others about celiac disease.
Follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and via my mailing list this month for celiac advocacy tips and awareness. I will also be sharing some of my favorite Gluten-Free Globetrotters from around the globe. Just because we can’t travel at the moment doesn’t mean we can’t dream about it and plan for the future.
Happy Celiac Awareness!
Notice anything different?
My blog was looking how I feel most days… OLD.
I worked with a designer on my new logo over a year ago but totally slacked on the website redesign. First, came the second cross-country move in 2.5 years. Then, came the pregnancy and baby. If those aren’t some major changes, I don’t know what is! Life happens, as we know, and this blog slipped.
