A Reflection on Eight Years Gluten Free

Have you ever been so busy that you forgot a special occasion?

A special event? A birthday? Perhaps, your own gluten free anniversary?!

You don’t celebrate your gluten free anniversary?! No?

seriously

Well, honestly, I don’t either. But I do like to take a moment each year to reflect on how far I’ve come in my gluten free journey. Particularly how much EASIER being gluten free has gotten over the years.

But this past summer I forgot! I marked EIGHT YEARS gluten free and I totally forgot. I blame Baby Ravelli. Totally worth it, but completely pre-occupying my time!

The cool thing about my GF Anniversary is that it also marks my Blogging Anniversary!

I started blogging not long after my diagnosis as a way to cope and connect. Some of my first blog posts:

Really? Soy Sauce?

Butterfingers!

I Got Glutened.

Popcorn?

Hunger Pains

Most of my posts in the beginning were more questions than answers. There were so many things that I didn’t realize I couldn’t eat – I had a steep learning curve!

Over the past 8 years, I’ve had tons of Favorite Posts – Favorite Products – Favorite Recipes. So I thought I would share a few my faves with you today!

Get ready for a TOTALLY RANDOM – COMPLETELY pregnancy brain list of recipes!
