Welcome to the first day of June! May was officially Celiac Disease Awareness Month, but as far as I am concerned, every month should be Celiac Awareness Month. I take every opportunity I can to educate people on Celiac Disease and the gluten-free diet. The most important thing is proper diagnosis. Next up is realizing that gluten-free food doesn’t have to be tasteless food. I gladly share samples, meals and treats with my non-gluten-free friends and family to show them that I may have to follow a special diet, but I eat well. Where there is a will, there is a way.
