Hi i'm new to this, my girlfriend has been diagnosed for 2 years now with celiac disease and with me being a  non celiac. I try my hardest to still keep eating gluten but also try to not get her sick.I'd rather have her happy and healthy than eat gluten though.  It's hard because i hate seeing her sick and miserable. Any suggestions would be great.  Along with the celiac disease my girlfriend is also allergic to yeast (cross reactive or it acts the same as gluten) and is also allergic to dairy,soy,peanuts,eggs.

IMHO the best way to handle this is for you to only eat gluten when you're away from home. Brush your teeth very well before kissing her after you've eaten any gluten or any of her allergens.

It's wonderful that you are supporting her so!

Yes, even a tiny exposure to gluten can cause a flare-up.  I understand that this spice is usually diluted with wheat flour.  It is best to contact the manufacturer or find a certified gluten free source.
