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.

Weekly Menu Plan- June 5, 2011 

Sunday, June 5, 2011 11:12:42 AM


Summer is here and so is the humidity. No complaints from me – I was tired of wearing gloves,coats,etc. 

Any fun summer plans going on? The kids get out of school this week. It seems that they went much later this year than they have in years past. It also seems that every other school around us is out already. My little sister goes to school in a neighboring town and they were out on May 27th. 

Looking forward to running some shorter distance races this summer. I signed up for my first ever 5K in July! Seems odd that I have run so many other race distances but have never run a 5K. I have run a 10K,3 half marathons and a full marathon previously. I will also be running a quarter marathon in September before my half marathon in October. Hoping to set some new goals &PRs for myself. I will also be focusing on stretching my legs better to hopefully avoid injury. A running friend on Facebook shared this link on stretching for runners

Being that it is the first week of summer vacation,meals will have to be quick,as there is much going on with us wrapping up the school year.
