About Me

Welcome to my Whole Food Plant-Based Gluten-Free Blog. 

            Whole Food | Gluten-free |  Oil-free | Vegan

Beginning in 2021, recipes on this blog are gluten-free, vegan and oil-free 
 Prior to 2021 you will find recipes that are gluten-free and some vegetarian. You will really like the recipes and the health benefits. 

All About Me!

How long have you been gluten free? 
I have been gluten free for over nineteen years. Prior to adapting to this diet, I had continuous stomach distress, irritable bowel syndrome, and reactions to many foods. 

What is Celiac Disease or gluten intolerance ? 

Celiac Disease and gluten intolerance are not the same. Celiac is an autoimmune disorder; gluten intolerance is not. However, both respond well to a gluten free diet. 

What do you mean that your recipes are "naturally " gluten free?

All of my recipes use natural ingredients, as opposed to processed or commercial foods manufactured as gluten free. Since gluten is only found in three ingredients (and their by-products), I eliminate rye, wheat, and barley, and anything made from those grains such as barley malt, wheat germ, etc. Therefore, my recipes are 
"natural" and contain familiar food products. My recipes are healthy and because I am vegetarian , so are they.

Would you like to be a guest blogger?

I welcome guest bloggers who want to blog about a lifestyle that is gluten free or a weight loss journey. If you include any recipes, they need to be vegan plant-based as well as gluten free and use real food ingredients as opposed to processed foods. In addition, I have had guest bloggers tell their weight loss stories, and that seems to be very popular with readers. Please contact me at vegyid2@yahoo.com if you would to share a guest post or if you would like me to write a guest post for your blog.
