Vital Juice Daily: Giving Up Gluten

Every day I get a cool little email newsletter called Vital Juice Daily. This e-newsletter usually has fun facts, tips, and links for healthy information. I was pleasantly surprised this morning when I saw the title "Giving Up Gluten" with a picture of Shauna James Ahern's book Gluten Free Girl. (See my earlier post with my praise for Shauna and her cooking class/book signing.) Some Celiacs are annoyed by the recent trendiness of gluten-free eating and media coverage, but I welcome it with open arms.

When I was diagnosed as a toddler in 1981, my parents had a very difficult time finding out anything about Celiac Disease. They sent away for my food by mail order and struggled to get answers about their sick daughter. In this Internet-age, recently diagnosed Celiacs have a plethora of information which is only a click-away. The key is knowing what to look for. Newsletters like the Vital Juice Daily: Giving Up Gluten might introduce the words "Celiac Disease" into a sufferers vocabulary and then lead them to ask their doctors for a test. So what if it is trendy?! Let's tell everyone we know what Celiac Disease is, how we can help each other heal by eliminating gluten from our diets, and that living gluten-free can still mean enjoying life and food.

Thank you Vital Juice Daily.

Gluten-Free Dolphin Swim
Ok, so this isn't necessarily about anything gluten-free but I recently went on a wonderful and much-needed cruise on the Norwegian Spirit. I plan on posting about my awesome gluten-free experience soon; Norwegian was super accommodating to the gluten-free diet.

In the meantime, here is a video of me swimming with the dolphins in Cozumel, Mexico. (And they were eating a fish-only diet so technically it was a gluten-free experience!) It was such a fun day in Cozumel, as you will see from the video. Look for me around 0:56, 3:04, 6:03, and 6:19.
