Welcome to Gone with the Wheat

Disclaimer:  I am not a medical professional.  Posts herein are my opinion only and are not meant to treat or diagnose any illness.  I advise that you seek medical advice before starting or changing any diet.

If you have celiac, gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance or lactose intolerance,  or IBS,  I have been there!

I suffered from IBS for many years before coming to the realization that gluten and dairy were the culprits that were making me miserable.  I gave up gluten, then dairy, and began to feel so much better.   As I have continued on this journey, I have developed intolerances to honey and agave.  I have also developed an allergy to tree nuts and peanuts.

This blog talks about my experience with the trials, pitfalls, and experiences living with gluten and dairy intolerance.  It can be daunting, heartbreaking, and also irritating trying to navigate the minefield of supermarkets, restaurants, travel, and get-togethers; while putting up with eye rolling, ignorance, and comments from well-meaning friends, family and “so-called” experts.

I mainly write about gluten and dairy intolerance, and also IBS and Fodmaps.  Living this way can be rewarding!  When you find a substitute recipe for a favorite food that you miss, and it works.   When you find a new gluten free food that tastes incredible.  When you have the support of loving family and friends.  When you find a restaurant that lives up to its gluten-free claims.

My mission is to help those who are struggling with being gluten and dairy free who don’t know where to begin.  My greatest focus is finding the balance between being gluten and dairy free, and eating foods I love.

I am constantly looking for and working to convert recipes into gluten and dairy free dishes and baked goods that are just as delicious as their gluten and dairy filled counterparts.  All recipes posted here are gluten, dairy and nut free.  They do contain other allergens as those are the only food intolerances I have.

I often share reviews on new and established gluten and dairy free products.  Sometimes I do receive free samples, but rest assured that will not produce any biased reviews.  I always give accurate and truthful reviews, regardless of the source of the product.

The internet is full of useful as well as useless and incorrect information.  Google can be your friend….but beware those who talk the talk and haven’t walked the walk.  Always do your research and due diligence.

I am happy to share recipes, tips, techniques, advice and support.  Please feel free to share any information you might find here.
