Twittering the Gluten Free Way

So I’m new to all this funky technology.  LinkedIn, Technorati, Digg, Blogs, Carnivals, and I’m just really settling to Facebook and thesavvyceliac.com of course.  But right now “Twittering” (or is it sending “Tweets”) are all the rage.  It’s like consistently updating your status with people on F...

Exchange Student Needs a Gluten-Free Home

This fall you heard about my family's adventures with hosting an exchange student with celiac disease. Ida is now half way through her stay here and I believe she’s having a great time.

My husband and I had been in “survival mode” for about 3 months; back in October of 2000, our then-18-month-old daughter was getting strong and healthy on the gluten-free diet.  But I needed more for my sanity.  I couldn’t keep feeding my daughter only hamburger, eggs and French toast until she was 18.  I needed t...
