My final project is a blog about cooking with Celiac Disease. Celiac disease has gotten a lot of attention lately because of surge in the number of people diagnosed. Celiac is a disease where one cannot consume gluten, because it triggers an autoimmune response that attacks the digestive system and other body systems.
Why did I choose this as my final project?Edit
I was recently diagnosed with the disease in July of 2013. Celiac disease is a challenging disease to live with. I grew up loving wheat bread, rolls, pizza, cookies, sauces, and everything else that has some sort of wheat flour in it. Switching my diet was hard and a lot of the recipes I found online were disgusting. I am using the blog as an outlet to others with Celiac (or who choose not to consume gluten) to give reviews on popular recipes and conversions. I will also highlight gluten-free companies and restaurants that help living with Celiac more manageable. A lot of the recipes I will be featuring will also be naturally gluten-free so that even if you don't have Celiac, there will be recipes you can make without having to buy special ingredients.
