I have never let diabetes run my life, but I have had a few bumps in the road during my 12 years of being diabetic. Diabetes can lead to many other complications due to lack of control of blood sugars but also just because of time. I have had to deal with a few different complications my more recent being diagnosed with food allergies to gluten, diary and eggs. Now, you might be asking yourself, ‘what’s left?’. Well, not much to be honest. Totally kidding! Many people do not really know what it means to be 100% gluten free. Well, I am here to tell you.
Being allergic to gluten means that you cannot consume anything that contains the proteins that are found in wheat, barley, rye and other crossbreeds of these grains. And that can cause for some problems when it comes to finding options to eat, especially while I am away at school. Luckily, I love to cook and experiment with different types of foods and bake. I could bake all day long! So I have found some amazing recipes that provide me with ‘normal’ like food. Pinterest has become my best friend. (You can follow me to get some really great recipes!)
