Hi there! Welcome to Champagne for Breakfast…
Now, I know what you’re probably thinking.
“Who is this person and why should I trust a random internet stranger to tell me what to cook?”
Before I can possibly be a credible recipe-recommender, we should get to know each other a little.
When I was 18, I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. This revelation significantly changed the way I treated my body, and the most difficult change for me was adjusting my eating habits. I had no idea just how many foods contain gluten, and having to give up staples that I’d been eating my entire life was surprisingly challenging.
The longer I went without these foods, the more sensitive to them I became, which made the symptoms that much worse when I accidentally slipped. Today, even a crumb of something containing gluten can cause splitting headaches, fatigue, sharp stomach pain, and other unpleasant symptoms.
After being “glutened” one too many times by restaurants, school cafeterias, and even at friends’ houses, I knew I needed to take action. I decided that making my own food, in my own kitchen, where I could be sure it was a safe environment was the best way to keep myself healthy, fed and happy!
Thus my cooking frenzy was born.
Gluten free doesn’t have to mean bland! Champagne for Breakfast is an online collection of delicious proof that living with dietary restrictions can still be enjoyable.
Like savoring a glass of champagne, cooking vibrant, flavorful meals should awaken all your senses and make even your dullest days just a bit brighter. I’m here to help make that happen. If you have a favorite gluten free recipe, or one that you’d like to see made gluten free, let me know in the comments or contact me here.
