This is the most educational video I have ever seen on celiac and gluten intolerance. It starts out very basic, then gets in-depth about what is actually going on in the body and why. Then it goes into the history of celiac. I had never heard the history elsewhere, so trust it if you want.
Showing this video would be a great way to explain celiac to someone. Even when I tell people what it means to be gluten intolerant, I can’t get the idea across this well.

Here is Bella’s personal story and answers to my list of gluten free questions for the Mary’s Gone Crackers contest. I hear similar diagnosis stories from people of that generation. My grandmother and father were both misdiagnosed for most of their lives and found out they had celiac after they were 50.
What are the foods you missed the most?
Crackers, chips, most breads.
If you initially did not follow the gluten free diet. What made you change your mind?
