Traveling for the Holidays with Celiac Disease

Posted by Brittany McNeal on Nov, Mon 17, 2014

For those of us with Celiac Disease, the holidays can present a bit of an extra challenge. We’re faced with a seemingly endless spread of terrific-looking goodies that we can’t eat. While those options may look tasty, there are tons of great gluten-free choices that won’t make you take a chance on your health.

Have a Very Celiac-Friendly Thanksgiving

Posted by Brittany McNeal on Nov, Wed 05, 2014

About a year and a half ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Although now I know that I can enjoy a lot of the same foods (albeit modified) that I could before my diagnosis, there’s not a day that goes by that I’m not nose-deep in an ingredients label, sifting through all the jargon and manufacturing information that usually goes unread.

Gluten-Free Travel Guide + Free Stuff Friday!

Posted by Brittany McNeal on Jun, Fri 20, 2014

Summer travel can pose some pretty interesting dilemmas to those of us with food allergies, food sensitivities, and Celiac Disease. If you’re like me, one of the estimated 20 million Americans with some variety of gluten-sensitivity, summer travel can cause more headaches than a delayed flight or highway construction.

May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month

Posted by Brittany McNeal on May, Thu 01, 2014

Celiac Disease Awareness Month is very close to my heart. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease almost a year and a half ago, and although it's something I live pretty comfortably with now, it wasn't a happy or easy diagnosis to get by any means.

Why I Wear Medical ID Jewelry

Posted by Brittany McNeal on Feb, Sun 23, 2014

Since I work here at Lauren's Hope, it might seem pretty obvious as to why I'm such an advocate for Medical ID Jewelry, but the reality is, working here has only served to open my eyes as to why most Americans should wear one. Medical ID jewelry isn't just for those with certain medical conditions, drug or food allergies. Medical IDs are also a live-saving tool for caregivers too.

Living with Celiac's Disease [Part Three]

Posted by Brittany McNeal on Feb, Mon 03, 2014

Life after diagnosis has been smooth sailing for the most part. Since my father and I are both gluten free, even Thanksgiving and Christmas (normally a pretty gluten-y affair) were both huge successes for us, and by success, I mean it felt normal, and that meant a lot to the both of us.

As soon as I was greeted by the nurse, I knew something was amiss. The nurse quickly ushered me into an exam room, and only a few short minutes later, my doctor followed.

Living with Celiac's Disease [Part One]

Posted by Brittany McNeal on Jan, Sun 19, 2014

First off, I’d like to introduce myself: Hello! I’m Brittany McNeal. That's me over there to the right... Snazzy. I’m the brand-spanking new content creator at Lauren’s Hope, and I (like almost 8% of Americans) have an autoimmune disease. In fact, like most people who have an autoimmune disease, I have more than one: Celiac Disease and Hashimoto’s Disease.

Whether it's due to Celiac Disease, gluten sensitivities or intolerances, wheat allergies, or a Paleo diet, a great many people are eating gluten-free these days. With the carb-loaded, stuffing-infused, food-focused holiday of Thanksgiving (and then the winter holidays!) fast approaching, it feels like a good time to look at some gluten-free recipes the whole family can enjoy.
