About Me

I first learned of celiac disease while studying for my masters in nutrition and immunology at Texas A&M University. Prior to this, I had been sick for over six years with unexplained health problems. After discussing my options with a local physician, I decided to try the gluten free diet.  Within days the symptoms had resolved!  Ten years and two healthy children later, I am still gluten free.  In an effort to help bring celiac disease into the mainstream, I have recently published a Christian romance novel, Trusting for Tomorrow, that highlights the struggles of diagnosing and living with celiac disease.  Follow my blog at www.jenniferinjupiter.wordpress.com.

  2. I’m not sure when I became part of the “in crowd” but suddenly I find that I’m not weird anymore.  Gluten-free is now “cool.”  I go to restaurants and grocery stores and whole sections are labelled for people just like me.  Stranger still, I meet...

  4. Polaner All-Fruit Jam with Fiber:  Is it really Gluten and Sugar Free? How many of us find a trusted brand and happily spend the extra money to get that brand of that product so we don’t have to decipher labels each and every time we go to the grocery store?  I think...

  7. Celiac.com 10/12/2009 - I recently read an article in The Economist, of all places, that intrigued me. Titled, “Breathe Easy”, (The Economist, May 23, 2009, page 85) it explained a link between ecz...
  8. I would hate to add up all the hundreds of dollars I have wasted trying to get healthy. Now, however, I get healthy by focusing on one thing: making my intestines healthy. If my intestines are...
  9. This article humorously depicts a disastrous luncheon I attended. It brings home the message that living gluten-free can be challenging! Today I went to a business women’s power lunch. Now I am not a businesswoman and could give many examples of my failed attempts at staying-home-and-making-m...
