My name is Hayley and I’m a 24 year old Celiac living in the St. Louis area. My story begins smack dab in the middle of my undergraduate career at the University of Illinois. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in July of 2013. I know how difficult maintaining a social life can be when your life is severely limited by what you can eat and drink. This blog is dedicated to my journey of overcoming the anxiety and hardships that come with having to be gluten free and exploring amazing (and maybe not so amazing) restaurants, recipes, products, and more. Follow me as I go beyond gluten free.
A little more on me: I am absolutely obsessed with dogs. I have 2 fur babies named Bradley and Maggie. If you follow me on instagram, you have probably seen them. I love spending time with family and friends. I enjoy reading when I can find some free time, so please send me your suggestions (to add to the list of 50+ books I want to read). Cheese is my all time favorite food and the #1 reason I could never be a vegan. Steak and tacos are reason 2 and 3. Two buck chuck from Trader Joe’s makes me happy. And I will put Cholula hot sauce on just about anything. Want to know more? Sign up for my newsletter!
