Breakfast still remains one of the hardest meals while being gluten-free (in my opinion). Sure you can eat eggs, bacon, and your typical naturally gluten-free options. But wouldn't it be nice to change it up and create something truly flavorful and delicious? This Daybreaker Breakfast Flatbread using O'Doughs Flatbread is sure to be just that. It has a little spice but a whole lot of nutrition and flavor to kick your morning off right. Check out my easy recipe below and even check out the cooking demo I did to show you just how easy it is to make!

Austin, Texas is one of my favorite gluten-free cities out there. How many times have you visited a city and known that each restaurant you visit will be safe? It's not very often! That's why myself and Nima Sensor teamed up to test a ton of different restaurants in Austin, Texas. We did all of the hard work for you and spent a whole weekend testing the most recommended gluten-free restaurants in the city. Our goal was to determine if these top gluten-free restaurants were really safe for those with celiac disease. We happily got a lot of smileys which means the food we tested was under 20 ppm of gluten. That is huge! That being said, here are the gluten-free restaurants we visited in Austin, Texas plus a video for some tips on dining out while being gluten-free shared by myself and Celiac and the Beast.

Gluten free candy is very hard to figure out. Reading labels for gluten is a hassle which is why I created this gluten-free candy list to make it easier! Every Halloween, Valentine's Day, and Easter, I update this gluten-free candy list to make sure you are all safe around the holidays. There's so many candies that can contain gluten that you would have never thought of! This list will at least let you know what you can have while being gluten-free. If you would like any brands added to this list, please comment and I will look it up for you! I hope this helps!


I was never a fan of cake as a kid but ice cream cake was always my favorite. Gluten free ice cream isn't too hard to make but vegan? That's a whole different story. As my birthday approaches this month, I thought it'd be perfect to team up with Coconut Bliss and create this amazing Gluten Free & Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream recipe.


Not only will you be able to get this recipe here, but I'll also be doing a cooking Demo for this recipe at many GFFA Fests around the U.S. this year! You can view those dates and locations, here. It's finally starting to get warmer so why not make something special like this to celebrate! I've been loving it a little too much and I'm sure you will too.

We've all been through it. Whether you were getting diagnosed to be gluten-free or you're dealing with something now, we've all dealt with doctors who just won't listen. Your laundry list of symptoms continues to grow. The phrase "well your tests came back fine so let's run some more." starts to become routine. You get to the point where you're really start to question if it's all in your head. You start to doubt yourself but then that pain or nagging symptom comes back and you know, "something has to be wrong."

When I first got diagnosed with Celiac Disease and my adrenal disorder in 2011, I was told that I was perfectly fine according to their tests. I was told that I shouldn't have these symptoms since their papers said so. I knew something was wrong but my doctors wouldn't listen no matter what I said. "We're doing everything we can" they would say. But whenever I would leave that office, I knew I was just another statistic on a piece of paper. After a year, I was fed up, tired, and exhausted. Not to mention, my medical debt was getting exhausted too. It got to the point where if I didn't do these few things, I would have died in 2012. I wouldn't be here today if I didn't do these things and this is why I can't stress this advice enough.

It's been a while since I made any sort of gluten-free recipe. That's why I decided to re-do this delicious gluten-free carrot cake cookie recipe of mine for you to try! It's both dairy free and gluten-free which means a lot of people can enjoy it. This is a recipe I found from Healthfulpursuit.com which you can find Here! I decided to adjust the recipe a bit while also adding my own dairy free icing to make it taste a lot better. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as me!

Typical doctors see hundreds of patients a month. None of them have the time to focus on your case and you alone. If you're fed up with seeing doctors only to get no where with your on going illness, it's time to turn to academic medical research centers. Doctors at research centers often focus on just your case and you alone. They often have the most up-to-date research and the best technology in the industry. Whether you need help with celiac disease, adrenal fatigue, DH, or any on-going medical problem, medical research centers may be the best to help. Surely you don't want to travel across the U.S. to see one. And I'm sure you don't want to spend hours online researching too. That's why I created this list for the best medical research centers in each state so that you can hopefully get a doctor who will listen.

Note: Each link leads to the college's medical center website. Some medical institutes may require a referral from a physician. Each site will provide a form to print out or they will give you steps on how to get referred.

Advice:
If you're at the point where doctors aren't helping you any more, I recommended finding one of these research centers to help. Some people, like myself, travel states to get seen by the best doctors. Definitely look into these colleges and take the time to travel to an center even if it isn't close. If you're tired of feeling like crap, getting a doctor who will be dedicated to your case can make a difference.

These universities were ranked in the top 100 best medical centers for research by Forbes.com.
