Boredom

Gluten free food boredom is a real thing. Many times, those of us with food issues like to stick to the same foods because we know they are safe and we won’t get sick. I think this is both good and bad.

Gluten introduction and babies

Expecting a baby is nerve racking and exciting time. Parents can begin to introduce solid foods at 4 to 6 months. For most, this is a very exciting time.

So, when is the best time to introduce gluten containing foods to at risk children?

Resolutions!

It is a great time of year to make resolutions. I have several for this year, but they do not involve food.
