About

Hi!  Welcome to Easily Gluten Free, a place dedicated to simplifying the gluten free lifestyle.

I’ve been living the gluten-free journey since 2006.  At first, I felt very overwhelmed having to learn a new way to eat, thinking about every ingredient I put into my mouth.  Common things like making a weekly meal plan, a trip to the grocery store, ordering from a menu, or making dinner now came with huge learning curves and a host of emotions.

There are great resources out there that speak about eating gluten free which are full of medical information, testing options, ingredient lists, special recipes, and more.

But what I needed was practical help.  I would have loved to sit down with someone who could tell me the essentials: what to eat for each meal, how to feed my family nutritiously, how to eat out safely, how to enjoy special occasions like everyone else, and how to do it all without spending a fortune in time and money.

Now that I’ve been walking this road for several years, I’m dedicated to helping you on your journey as well.  I’m not a medical expert, just one who has lived gluten free long enough to finally feel at peace with it.  I’m here to help you live easily gluten-free too, so whether you’ve just begun or have been gluten-free for a while, I hope you join me in the journey.

  1. Hi,

    Thanks for the blog. I was diagnosed last Fall…was tickled it wasn’t cancer. I’m still getting used to checking the ingredient labels.

    Sometimes I wake up realizing I ate something with Gluten the day before and have been known to rummage through the trash to re-read the lables and figure out what I should have avoided. I look forward to trying some receipes from your blog.

    Well, now that you mention it, lol. I could use a very simple recipe for white gravy. I’m trying to figure out Chicken Fried Steak & gravy. Probably the one meal I have missed the most out of everything. I talked to Chris yesterday, she was telling me about one of your cakes? Chocolate perhaps? I can’t remember. Do you know which one she was referring to?

    Goodness! SO many typo’s I had! Auto correction isn’t always correct, lol.
    I pulled up your Thanksgiving stuffing recipe. Looks easy enough. I made crockpot Lasagne tonight, my first time to make gluten free lasagne. Not to bad. :) Thanks again for all your help, advice & suggestions. I can’t thank Chris enough for leading me to you!

    Oh, btw, you need to create a facebook page for this site. It would be a hit!

    Any idea on how to make a gingerbread latte like the one Starbucks serves this time of year? That was always my biggest indulgence during the winter.
