Nancy avoids gluten because she has to; Marlene because she chooses to. Both women are part of the booming gluten-free industry, but the stakes are much higher for one of them.
This article expresses exactly how I feel. It’s hard to explain, but it shows how living as a Celiac can be stressful and expensive, yet also can be undermined by the “gluten-free” community.
Great diagram showing types of gf flours! Wanted to save this for reference!
unfollowed a lot of inactive blogs so if you’re a fitblr, healthblr, yoga, or gluten free blog reblog this and I’ll check you out!
I feel this is important
You do not have to have money to be healthy. I read so many posts saying “I can’t work out because I don’t have money for a gym membership” or “I can’t eat the way I should because I can’t afford healthy food.” I know that these things do cost money but the thing is, you don’t need a gym to work out. You need a room with enough space to move and sidewalk/trail/road. If you have these things you can absolutely work out! If you attend university there is more than likely free gym access. Just use your resources and get creative! It will make working out more fun too!
As far as health food is concerned, trust me I understand the extra food costs. As someone who has to stick to a gluten free diet I am no stranger to grocery store sticker shock. Two years ago when I first had to change what I ate I literally could not afford gluten free food and I didn’t have access to a kitchen so again I had to get creative. You know what I found? There is a ton of food that is naturally gluten free! Yes it may not be the most exciting or tasty food but it’s food and most of it is good for you too!
I guess my point is, please don’t sacrifice your health because you feel you can’t afford to be healthy. If you make it a priority and get creative it is completely doable!
FINALLY an orange chicken recipe without a thousand ingredients I don’t have! Can’t wait to try it!

Well this looks delicious and not too bad for you either! First of all I had no idea Betty Crocker made a gluten free flour mix so that’s interesting, and second of all I know this isn’t entirely “clean eating” but it looks like a great “cheat meal” to me! Must try!
Hey Anti-Wheat Peeps!
As you may have heard, May 1 marks the start of National Celiac Awareness Month! Here at the Adventures of Anti-Wheat Girl, we have some exciting things planned for you, but to jumpstart the month we want to spread the word, and invite you do to it with us by sharing about National Celiac Awareness Month on Facebook.
To do that, we’ve created these handy Facebook cover photos for you to upload to your pages. You can use them to spread awareness, start a dialogue, or even learn a thing or two yourself! To add them to your page, right click on the one you like above, and all you have to do is save it to your computer and then upload to Facebook (and tag us in the post! We love to see people spreading the word!). The whole point of this month is to spread awareness, so let’s all take a second everyday to make that happen. Whether it be through posting one of these as your Facebook cover photo, sharing facts on any of your social media outlets, or by face to face interactions and encouraging people in your life to learn more. Let’s make this month count everyone!
Now go forth and spread the love!
All facts and statistics are from the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness. You can visit their website and learn more here.
Love these! My diagnosis took 5 years and that was too much! Spread the word!
Happy #CeliacAwarenessMonth from all of us at Udi’s! How will you help educate people about #CeliacDisease?
In All Seriousness
How do I make tumblr friends?! I’d really love to have someone as a “workout buddy” or just to talk to! I think it would be so fun to get to know someone from somewhere else too. This sounds desperate I know but be my friend?
