November always reminds us to be thankful and express gratitude in our life.
This really got me thinking about my own life, my gluten-free life.
I am really thankful that I’m gluten-free. Actually, it may very well be one of the best things that have ever happened to me.
You may think I am crazy for sharing this
but think about it . . .
I spent years feeling terrible, with no one able to tell me what was actually wrong.
I spent years telling doctors I thought that food was making me sick. (They all said no!)
I spent years missing celebrations and fun times with family and friends because I felt terrible and didn’t want to leave the house.
I spent time resting, snuggled at home when I should have been out living my life!
Finding out I had to live gluten-free
I learned a lot about food.
I started eating healthier than I ever had (even though I thought I had been eating pretty healthy.)
I realized that all the symptoms my children were having, that could not be explained, were all due to Celiac Disease.
My children were diagnosed with Celiac Disease because I was researching and trying to understand my gluten-free life.
Other family members and friends started understanding that their symptoms were possibly caused by gluten (from listening to me go on about living gluten-free!)
The terrible symptoms that kept me from living a full life – lessened and disappeared. (Unless I was accidentally “glutened”, which can happen.)
My children gained their energy back and are now healthier than ever.
I have always loved baking. Living gluten-free taught me about the multitude of flour options I could use for gluten-free baking – I had no idea these flours existed.
I became a Certified Health Coach because I learned so much about living my gluten-free life that I needed to share and teach others.
I taught my family the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, living gluten-free, and being empowered with this lifestyle.
I have empowered clients to live gluten-free.
I now teach YOU how to understand and incorporate gluten-free living in your everyday lives with ease. (Friends, it does NOT have to be stressful!)
