Hi and welcome to Feeding Gluten Free! Here on this blog, you will find all gluten-free recipes made with wholesome ingredients. I work with fresh foods to make meals taste amazing, one dish and photo at a time 🙂
My name is Jen, and I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. I didn’t start off making gluten-free recipes by choice. I have Celiac disease, so I was kinda forced to. Diagnosed in adulthood, it sucked the first six months. Literally. And it wasn’t my body. It was my mind really. Changing my diet wasn’t hard at all for the gut. Overtime, my gut healed itself. There was alot of damage over the years so pain free felt wonderful. But my mind was going nuts.
I learned that so many things had gluten in them, that I would buy prepackaged from stores, and I couldn’t eat any longer. It was overwhelming. Goodbye Oreo cookies and hello….
…..cocoa powder? Seriously. Like what was I gonna do with that nasty stuff that tasted like dirt? Little did I know then that this could be concocted. Or how that’s originally how it’s made.
And late night burritos? Really? I couldn’t grub on those fantastic, flavorful wraps filled with hefty love. I cried. And cried. But later, I realized I could make something even better.
I figured out that gluten-free can look and taste incredible. It’s all about seasoning, fresh produce, and quality ingredients.
I feel that anyone can eat these recipes! You can cook one of my dishes as is, and the great thing about it is you can also cook it your way. With or without gluten. My recipes are simple enough, where it works either way. Substituting is crazy easy!
About me? I come from a family of surgeons and doctors and nurses, but I pursued journalism and theatre in college and am a singer. I’ve performed all my life on stage and love comedy, as well as musical theatre. After school I drove out to Los Angeles to act, eventually becoming a part of the Screen Actors Guild. During that time, I was home visiting family and met my husband on a blind date. He knew more about movies than anyone I’d met in California. Plus, he was hot. I am now a stay at home mom with two beautiful children and two crazy dogs. I currently food blog full time.
These are mine right here below. That cutie on the left has to eat gluten-free, as he tested positive for the wheat allergen after lots of symptoms. That beauty on the right doesn’t need to eat gluten-free, so I don’t make her. And that handsome man in the middle inspires me daily to keep going with this blog. In a nutshell, nothing else matters to me in life more than these three. And nothing ever will.
My goal is to give you lots of sweet and savory dishes on this blog, all without gluten. I’m here to show you how to make them all at home, one ingredient and photograph at a time!
