celiac awareness month 2013

Happy Celiac Awareness Month!  

From the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness comes this personal story of Celiac awareness and encouraging family members to get tested.

NFCA also has a special website specifically for this special month - - and a handy 9-page toolkit that lists upcoming Twitter chats, a webinar on gluten-free menu planning without breaking the bank, an online silent auction with Miss New Jersey (who's raising funds for NFCA), a GF product of the day, and a giveaway from EatSmart Naturals.

What are you doing to celebrate and increase awareness?  To start, I'm grabbing a snack with my mom at Bella Luna tonight.  (Review to come!  I like to try a restaurant twice before I review, if possible, and this is my second time there.)  I also recently told my manager about it, and she ordered in some Good Greens bars that our store is going to start carrying.

In other news, I got accepted into the accelerated BSN/MSN program at UC  =)  Wooooohooooooo!!

Happy eating!
