In college my friends called me Betty Crocker because I was always baking. Since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2005, I've reinvented my name - Gluten Free Betty. I cook and bake so that I don't have to live without and I blog about the recipes that make my life taste good again!
I'm not a teen, but I have an 18 year old brother with celiac disease. He loves coming to my house because it's a completely gluten free environment and he knows he can eat whatever he wants without wondering if it will make him sick. I know that he really struggles when he's out with friends... it's hard to say no to something when everyone else is eating it and you're hungry and there isn't anything for you to eat. I wish you the best! If you have any questions you want me to pass on to my brother I'd be happy to do so.
