When I, Alan, met the love of my life, Laurie, she informed me she had celiac disease and could not eat foods that contained gluten. I had heard of gluten intolerance, but didn’t know much about how it differed from Celiac. If you’re not fully up to speed either, you can find out more at celiac.org.
Over the next few weeks, I learned more and more about her disease, and began to think of all the wonderful meals we could never have. Alas, I was worried for nothing. You see, you can easily make your favorite foods gluten free and eat safely at many restaurants, it just takes a few extra steps and a little research.
Why is this site called My Gluten Free Girlfriend?
We started amassing recipes, visiting restaurants, and building knowledge that I thought could help others couples. This led me to set up this site. Originally I was going to write it which is why it is called My Gluten Free Girlfriend. When Laurie realized her passion for cooking and I tasted her fantastic meals I let her take over. I occasionally write a post and certainly help her with the tasting of recipes, but mostly My Gluten Free Girlfriend is her baby now.
