An estimated 3 million Americans have Celiac Disease. Celiac Disease is an autoimmune condition that damages the villi of the small intestine which inhibits nutrient absorption that can cause a myriad of problems, not limited to migraines, thyroid disease and more.

The Celiac Disease Foundation reports 95% of CD is misdiagnosed or undiagnosed. A strict gluten free diet is the main treatment. Finding the right resources is extremely important in maintaining health.

Check out these sites for more information on Celiac Disease:

Eating gluten free can be overwhelming for many who are used to eating a wheat based diet. Shopping for a gluten free diet can be just as challenging.  Many supermarkets have gluten free resources that you can read about on my blog.

Lazy Day Books is also a great resource.  They have a great collection of gluten free books and cookbooks that are listed below.
