About Finding (Gluten) Freedom
Hi! My name is Beth, and I live outside Washington, D.C., with my husband and three year-old son.
I have been living gluten-free since 2007. You can read my gluten-free story here.
Finding (Gluten) Freedom is a series-based blog featuring a variety of gluten-free lifestyle issues to inspire community discussion rooted in the following principles of positivity:
First and foremost, it is my goal to use this blog to reframe the community’s perspective on living gluten-free as a positive change. Living gluten-free will, ideally, lead to improved health as well as greater understanding of and appreciation for our ability to take charge of our own health through our food and lifestyle choices.
Living gluten-free every day is not easy. As Churchill famously said, “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” Let’s take advantage of this opportunity to create a community that supports its members in overcoming the difficulties of living gluten-free.
I hope to start a discussion that leads to clear, purposeful, valuable solutions for everyday challenges. With your help, this newfound community can become a comprehensive resource for people living gluten-free.
Fear, of getting glutened or making a decision that dramatically affects your (or your loved one’s) health, can often be the hardest part of starting to live gluten-free. Increasing confidence in your ability to protect your health and make informed decisions will ease this fear and help you stay positive about your gluten-free lifestyle.
This blog will regularly cover the latest scientific research and/or developments in living gluten-free in an effort to spark community discussion about new and interesting ways to live gluten-free.
Every person who lives gluten-free has his or her own experience with it. As this blog’s author, I will share information that will, undoubtedly, be shaped by my experience. I hope that you will provide feedback about your experience with gluten-free living in order to enrich our discussion and create an even stronger community resource.
