Suddenly Celiac

I remember the day as clearly as if it were yesterday, at 37 I was suddenly celiac.

What now? I asked my doctor, as she handed me a list of all the things I could no longer eat.

Later, as I stood there at the grocery store with my long list of “can’t haves” in hand, I felt overwhelming sense that I would never eat real food again begin to creep over me…but hey, I have a love affair with food…what was this but an opportunity to learn how to love something new?

Yes it’s Celiac, yes, it’s a lifelong condition for which there is one cure…a gluten free diet, but that doesn’t mean the end to yummy food!

Thus begin my journey down the great, and glorious, and sometimes downright hilarious road of gluten free cuisine! There are things I had to learn how to do differently, of course.

First lesson?  You can’t make an apple taste like an orange no matter how hard you try, and the same theory applies to gluten free recipes.

Once you accept this and stop trying to make the perfect French bread that taste just like regular French bread (but without any of the regular ingredients) then, and only then, can you embrace the joys of eating gluten free.

So my journey has led me here now, to a place where, as a certified holistic health coach, I can help others faced with the daunting task of completely changing their way of eating.

I’m looking forward to working with Hautemealz.com and creating their weekly gluten-free menu plans.

I believe in what hautemealz.com doing. I’ve been on the receiving end of “Mom, what’s for dinner?”… (without a clue for an answer) way more times than I would like to admit!

Our Gluten Free & Easy menus are designed to take the guess work out of planning and preparing GF meals. Relax while you shop for products and brands that I have personally researched and verified to be gluten free!

Ever have a question about a recipe or an ingredient…we’re here for you!

So, check out our menu plans, download a free week, and give it a try. With our better-than-money-back promise, what have you got to lose?

And I promise you, I promise you… there will be gluten free French bread here no matter how many attempts it takes me to get right!

I look forward to sharing many wonderful meals with you,
