Gluten Free Mamas, UNITE!
Okay, I know there are lots of us on here, and I'd love to have a central hub for us to come together, share our story of becoming GF, and share a link or two!
For those unfamiliar with Celiac disease/gluten intolerance, get familiar! Approximately 1 in 100 people in the US have Celiac disease, and 1 in 7 people worldwide suffer from a non-Celiac gluten intolerance!
I'll post my story in the next post, since it's long, and I'd like to keep this one tidy for links.
Celiac/Gluten intolerance/sensitivity info:
Here's a good "Quick Start Guide" for some basics. And here are Safe and Unsafe food lists, for a more detailed list. When I first started, I printed those off and took them to the grocery store with me. If you join the SillyYaks yahoo group, they have lots of great links and files on mainstream foods and restaurants!
