BEST GUIDE TO EATING GLUTEN-FREE
Shauna James Ahern, Washington State
For all those with a gluten allergy or a family or friend with one, this blog is a treasure trove of information and scrumptious-looking recipes. Since being diagnosed as a celiac several years ago, Shauna’s life has changed dramatically – for the better. The pages of Gluten-Free Girl are alive with her delight at exploring a gluten-free world, and being able to enjoy food for the first time in years. Complete with lovely photographs and vignettes of her family life on a tiny island in Washington State, the blog is welcoming and unique in its ability to make eating gluten-free sound not just tolerable but full of possibility. A particularly poignant moment: when Shauna’s husband, a chef, shows her the latest menu for his restaurant and she looks at it and says, “Hey honey. I can eat everything on this menu,” and he says, “I know. You’re my muse.” Good stuff.
