Hello Everyone, I want to talk about getting support from your local celiac association. I know I have needed help in the past and have used these wonderful resources to learn about celiac disease and to know that I am not alone. As I venture out and travel the world I want to encourage others to do the same. My travels have been featured in national and local celiac canada chapter newsletter and magazines. I encourage a celiac life without borders.
Canadian Celiac Association
My travels made it into the Canadian Celiac Association magazine for the Spring Edition. Please find my articles and many other important celiac related items in the magazine. You may download the pdf of the spring edition from the Canadian Celiac Association here.
Edmonton Celiac Assocation
It was an honour to featured in the Edmonton Chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association newsletter for April and May 2018. It is great to work with organizations that provide support to people with celiac. If you are in the Edmonton area and want to know more about their resources, see their website here.
Vancouver Celiac Association
The Vancouver chapter also featured my article in their March 2018 magazine. I love to show people that they can travel and still eat gluten free.
If you are like me and do not know any family or friends who have celiac and are looking for support, consider your local Celiac Association. I find it important to discuss things with other people who know what I am going through and it seems like I learn something new all the time.
I am still travelling in Asia and having a great time. Of course, I run into challenges because I have celiac and other autoimmune diseases, but life is full of challenges and I become stronger every day, especially when I overcome obstacles. On a positive note, I have not been sick from eating gluten once and that is cause for celebration!
Favourite Muffin Recipe
I wanted to share my favourite quick snack to make.
- Gluten free chocolate cake mix
- Pureed pumpkin
- Craisins (you can add nuts, chocolate chips, etc.)
Mix the ingredients together and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. They are super moist and delicious. Sometimes I use the Betty Crocker gluten free cake mix rather than the Nameste brand, both are great.
