1- We want to help others like us who are new to the whole gluten free thing to see the light. Guys- its not the end of the world. No matter how hard it is to stomach the idea that you can’t have gluten, I promise…. it gets better! (No pun intended..)
2- How many times have you gone to the store wondering if a gluten free product is yummy or yucky? We know! We do this almost every time we go to the store and peruse the GF aisle. Wouldn’t it be nice to KNOW if a product is good or bad before you spend your hard earned cash on it? We want to inform all gluten freebees about products that are good & products that are bad.
3- Most blogs we’ve seen have recipes that freak us out. We are not gourmet chefs, nor do we have the pantry/budget of one. We want to provide easy peasy recipes that don’t take your whole day.
4- Gluten is not limited to just food. It is in lotion, makeup, shampoo, & many other beauty products. As a licensed cosmetologist, Brooke wants to share her expertise of this seldom mentioned aspect of living a gluten-free life.
5- Most importantly, we don’t want to JUST bring you recipes. Being diagnosed with Celiac (Bri) & gluten intolerance (Brooke) has turned our whole WORLD around. It’s not simply about not EATING gluten. It’s a lifestyle change. It involves the food you eat, the products you put on your body, how you feel day to day, and where you shop. It’s extremely expensive and you have to be on top of what you eat at all times, it makes you more concerned about what your children eat, the diversions you enjoy, & literally every aspect of your life. Most of us don’t choose this & don’t ever plan on having to be this careful & limited. So hopefully we can be of some help to you by sharing the good, the bad, the ugly, and of course- our daily discoveries!
