I’m Lisa Bastian….and I’ve been living gluten-free (GF) since 2011 as a way to improve my overall health. I am highly allergic to wheat, so going GF is a way to avoid this once-wonderful grain. Join me as I search for some of the most tasty GF foods served, sold and made from scratch in San Antonio, TX….and learn how to incorporate new way of eating into my life spent as a wife, mother, background investigator and business owner.
Celiac disease is a genetic, digestive disorder that causes damage to the small intestine and interrupts the body’s nutrient absorption from food. People with celiac disease can’t tolerate gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Fortunately, there are now many natural and processed food choices available for the 1 out of every 133 people (estimated) who are gluten-intolerant. Some experts blame this epic problem on genetically modified (GM) food which has been allowed to make up about 85% of our food supply, according to some estimates. This Frank-n-food probably is what is causing such severe reactions worldwide.
