Gluten Free is Life

I am a gluten-free wife, runner & blogger with two children in Columbus, Ohio. After my celiac diagnosis in 2006, I have made it my mission to embrace an entirely new approach to nutrition in a gluten-free world, exploring options that run the gamut from “made from scratch” homemade bread to sampling and reviewing the gluten-free prepared foods that are continuously being introduced to the market. While navigating the waters of becoming gluten-free, I share my experiences and pass along valuable product reviews in addition to helping other moms of celiac kids develop healthy menus that are kid-friendly and palatable. I feel that I am a valuable resource for those who are newly diagnosed, as well as for the more seasoned gluten-free veterans.

Happy Easter!

Hope that everyone is enjoying Easter (if you celebrate – or Sunday, if not)!  We are having Aaron’s parents over for dinner tonight.  We aren’t doing ham today because we are making ham for Mother’s Day in just 2 weeks.  Instead of ham, I decided on salmon, as everyone loves it (except Jon and I will make him another protein).  Mary is making dessert – rumor has it that it is a Butterscotch Pie with a gluten-free pie crust courtesy of Whole Foods.  I thought I would share a few other Easter or holiday recipes here today for those who may be interested.

We are pleased that the rain let up a little yesterday for Hannah to attend an Easter egg hunt with her friend.  There was still plenty of mud, though.  She came home with mud all up the back of her pants – most likely from running through the muddy fields.  Oh, to be a kid! 


Here is our menu plan for the week:


Sunday – Salmon, coconut baked brown rice, roasted asparagus & salad

Monday – Bison Burgers, sweet potato puffs, broccoli & salad

Tuesday – Burritos, corn & salad

Wednesday – Spaghetti and turkey meatballs, green beans & salad

Thursday –Breakfast for dinner and fruit salad

Friday – MYOP – make your own pizza and salad

Saturday – leftovers or take-out
