New Gluten-Free Bakery with a Famous Name!

Celiac.com 04/30/2013 - In March of 2013, celebrity Jennifer Esposito opened her very own gluten-free bakery named "Jennifer's Way Bakery." You may recognize her from movies such as Crash and Summer of Sam. Her new establishment can be found in Manhattan's East Village.

According to Allergic Living, Esposito lost a role on CBS's Blue Bloods after requesting reduced workloads because of her health conditions while she was recovering from years of untreated celiac disease. The network came to the conclusion that she was not able to spend the needed time to be on the show, and after a dispute it was no more.

Jennifer has also been blogging gluten-free recipes on her blog, jennifersway.org for some time. She now appears happy to be participating in such a full-filling cause.

While Jennifer was removed from CBS you can still catch her and her bakery on a show taking place all around New York called Playing with Fire on the E! Network.

From what I have read, Jennifer really received a raw deal from Blue Bloods. Celiac disease can definitely be a disability, and most people need time to recover after being diagnosed. I really don't understand how in California, the laws didn't protect her status as needing a medical leave of absence. Also, from a personal point of view, not only do I view the show in a different, more intolerant light, but Jennifer did a fantastic job in her role and now the constant parade of new "temporary partners" for the detective is not only annoying, but absurd.

I'm sorry you're feeling poorly. As I read the good advice you already got and your message, I was wondering a couple of things. 1. You mention your very strict schedule that keeps you on track but it says eating decently well but it doesn't say cooking. If you are eating out a lot, that is ...

Thank you everyone for your replies. ravenwoodglass: Your advice was helpful I?ll try to avoid items like this which have so many unnecessary and artificial ingredients ? they make me feel out of control. A food and symptom diary is a great idea - especially when trying out new brands of fo...

Hi, I?m sorry you?re not feeling well and sympathize with the lack of answers. It?s not usually normal to have reduced WBC, no. If I had reduced WBC I would want to make sure it?s not a rheumatoid autoimmune condition, so I might get an ANA and a urinalysis. Are you taking any medicatio...

Interesting- thank you for sharing. I saw my ND yesterday and she also suggested that after having been completely cleaned out for my procedures, my body could be trying to adjust. She is having me take a rest from the strong probiotics I was taking, and I'm focusing on eating foods that are more...
