About Me

My name is Kelly Fox, I am 37, and live in VA. I struggle to live gluten free, as we all do, and find an open mind, humor, and a willingness to experiment are what keep me going! If life is a box of chocolates, did everyone check the label to make sure there is no gluten added?

  1. Today is September 13th, 2011. Celiac awareness day!  Why is it so important to have such a day? Because without awareness we have no voice, we will never have a cure, we will constantly suffer from mislabeled foods, accidental gluten intake, and cross contamination. I have compiled some great...

    Absolutely unjust!

    I just found out that THIS will be coming to stores soon! AAARG! Usually I keep a cool head about things (BWAH!) But this is just unfair! Who among us hasn't laughed hysterically at that skit? It is the best! A true classic! And we don't get any. We all know about my love of Ice cream....

    So Unfair

    Our lives revolve around food. The selection of ingredients, the preparation, the clean up, these activities take up a large portion of our everyday lives. Our very survival depends on our food intake. For those of us with food allergies, thoughts of food become almost compulsive. We can't eat this...

    Positivity

However, it is necessary when dealing with gluten allergies. We all have those days where we feel down and wonder "why me?", but we can't let those days beat...

It is the Ben & Jerry's Factory, and my family and I were lucky enough to be able to go there this weekend.Never one to pass up an opportunity to eat ice cream, especially Ben & Jerry's, I...

    Gluten Addictive?

    Did you know that Gluten can affect the receptors in the brain the same way Opium does? I didn't. It makes sense however, who of us hasn't sat down to a fabulously crafted pizza, or a bowl of pasta and felt that lethargy come on? It also explains why gluten / wheat products can be addictive...
  7. I see a lot of stories about Gluten allergies, but none tell the real story. What it's really like on a daily basis to have a gluten allergy. Most people think, Oh well, if you don't eat it you must feel fine.Not so! We may feel better, but it's a constant battle. We have to be ever vigilant...

    Be Careful!

    I am astounded by the amount of foods and products that either have gluten, or wheat flour added to them. Even the delicious salads from restaurants, you know the ones, with the adorable little bags of nuts they give you to sprinkle on top gleefully? Those nuts are coated in wheat flour. Why? What...
