Sushi from Tomo in Austin, TX.
Watch out for the top right roll pieces though because they’re tempura (wheat battered). The description didn’t include those.

I keep posting to the wrong blog(s) now that I have two, so I apologize if you see dogs in my food or food with my dogs!

French cut green beans and new potatoes with vegan butter, fresh ground pink Himalayan rock salt, and fresh cracked black pepper. I needed a fast, easy, and healthy meal.

One of the main reasons I run this blog is to share still being able to enjoy life through good food while having celiac disease, but that’s not the entire story. Celiac disease is why gluten free has to be taken seriously. It’s not just a fad for those of us with it, it’s a matter of living a healthy normal life. 

This is the second time I’ve had a large rash on my face since I was first diagnosed. It feels like burning and stinging and if I pick at the little bubbles before it subsides, they can pop (don’t touch them)! 

The first time, someone accidentally (drunkenly) spilled an entire beer all the way down my frontside and the rash lasted about 24 hours spread across the middle of my face. I’m pretty sure this time it’s from touching all of the dog food and treats with gluten, plus not washing my hands immediately afterward. 

Many people think it’s a food allergy, but it’s actually an autoimmune disease that can be very susceptible to flaring. We have to use gluten free everything from shampoo to makeup without exception. 

There is no treatment except avoiding all gluten every time, no cure, and no “cheating” unless you want to be in a world of pain.
