Explaining "it" To Family...

So I'm going to be staying with my GREAT grandmother soon for a weekend, to keep her company. As you might imagine, she's up in the numbers but she's not "old". However, I don't really know how I will explain this coeliacs to her! I don't think "I can't eat barley, wheat, rye or triticale" will work. My family grew up believing that wheat and barley are the best things you could ever put into your mouth, next to a strong cuppa tea and an apple.
I don't know your GREAT grand mother, but my Grand Mother (in the short time I knew her) was open and inquisitive. She used to make me orange juice with a raw egg in the blender, every night I stayed with her. It wasn't bad, but the raw egg????? But, she knew best.
Just be open and honest with her. I bet she's still up to a challenge. And offer to cook a few sides or a meal, depending on your stay.
