Celiac Disease has gone to my head (and wallet)

Just beginning the series? Here’s what you’ve missed.

Part I -- The Diet Contest

Part II -- “You look allergic.”

Part III -- It was Thursday


Thanks for the comments last week. I'm glad you’re enjoying my story. This week, I don't have the next episode ready: It's been a crazy week. Instead, I'm going to share with you a current snippet of my life with celiac sprue.


I went to the grocery store today, and like I always do, I looked for new gluten-free products in the freezer case. I didn't really expect to find any; I don't shop at a specialty store or anything, so I usually just make do with what I can find or simply do without.

Today, I found two - TWO - technically FOUR if you count variants - new products! Oh, happy happy happy day. I almost did a little dance right there in the freezer section. I mean I would have, but I kinda forgot how joyful I felt in the midst of the shock. Three of the four items WERE ON SALE! $2.99 for a box of gluten free Van's toaster waffles! Oh, happy day!


I bought these.

$6.95. Not on sale. TOTALLY worth it. I haven't had doughnuts since last spring.

And these.

And these.

This, my friends, is what we call "stocking up". Did I mention they were on sale?

Happy day.

I hope they are good!!! It has been a crazy week - so glad things turned out well with the school/your job!

Dan's Wellness Pharmacy also carries several gluten free products (in case you didn't already know!)

AWESOME!!! Both donuts and waffles. I'm surprised you didn't do a happy dance right there in the freezer section. Bet you did when you got home! Let us know if they taste good.

There's a whole store near my house that specializes in gluten free foods. I've never been inside but maybe I'll stop in an see if they have a catalog and ship products. I drive by the store at least 3 days a week. :) I'll let you know!
