May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month, a month dedicated to bringing awareness to celiac disease in an effort to increase diagnosis rates, and fundraise for research efforts  so we can work towards a cure. 

In 2018, we launched our at-home celiac disease screening test, and since then, have been dedicated to providing solutions for the celiac disease community.

Food Matters! 

Once diagnosed, a patient with celiac disease is prescribed to eat a strict gluten-free diet. Going gluten-free can make an immense difference in health and overall well-being. But it’s not always easy to be gluten-free! It’s likely that you’ll be spending a lot more time researching recipe ideas and ingredient substitutions rather than in the actual kitchen.

We’re here to help, and have rounded up some of our delicious gluten-free recipes from our community, which include some exceptional nutritionists and registered dieticians.

  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir to combine evenly. Gently fold in blueberries.

You need the inside of a baked sweet potato for this recipe. You can make it the day you make this recipe or use one you prepped ahead of time. Bake a small sweet potato at 425° for about 40 minutes or until a knife pokes thru easily.

  3. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom of the springform pan.
  4. Bake the crust until golden, about 5-8 minutes.
