Week of Love

Week of Love

Think it’s important to be able to give and show love to those who support us. As someone who has had countless health issues that include tons of gluten pain. It becomes imperative that you learn to put yourself first and make your health a priority.

In doing so, my life has become so different than it was just a few years ago.

Gluten Free Diet is not enough!!!

Gluten Free Diet is not enough!!!

For so many people who suffer from celiac disease (and really any autoimmune disease) where gluten has become poison to your body, everything changes. The way that you look at food, the way that you shop, the way that you cook, the way that you interact with friends and family, and for some of us who we are.

Celiac disease changes us. Changes us to our very core

1- A woman makes time for what she wants

How true is that statement!?! As a woman, we organize our day and our lives based on our needs being met, based on what we believe is most important to us and based on who we love. 

2- Do you take care of you?

There are only 24 hours in a day, yet somehow we find time to love and support all the special people in our lives no matter what else is going on in our lives. But do we love and support ourselves? Do you make time to take care of your body? Do you make time everyday to support your own health?
