Author's Corner My name is Jennifer V. Spersrud and I am 42 years old. I have celiac disease. That might sound awful to you, but not for me! My regional gluten-free life style books will be a wonderful resource to inform you of gluten-free supermarkets to gluten-free bakeries in your entire region. Having celiac disease is more than just an allergy to gluten, but it is a lifestyle change. In these books I have included points to help make life easier for those people living with gluten allergies; for example, eating out at restaurants. You need to be proactive in dealing with this situation. For example, when eating out at restaurants, be sure to ask the right questions: 1.Do you have a gluten-free menu? If the answer is no, I myself would not eat there. Taking a chance of receiving gluten is not worth it to me. 2.Does the kitchen chef have a section on the grill/stove for gluten-free items? This is a crucial question because if it is at all possible that gluten can reach the clean area of the grill, you should not risk ingesting it. But as I said you need to ask the specific questions to get the right answers. 3.Does the kitchen staff prepare meals in stainless pots and pans with stainless cooking tools? This is important because plastic utensils absorb the wheat and other gluten-containing elements. These are just a few questions that can help you learn to cope with eating out, and continuing your normal life. I say normal because having a gluten-allergy is just another part of your life and that should not hold you back from any part of your previous lifestyle. My resource books cover a lot of knowledge on gluten-free lifestyle; let's do this together! Sincerely, Jennifer
