why you need a celiac diagnosis

Why Do I Need a Celiac Diagnosis?

I always get the question “why do I need a celiac diagnosis?” This is usually because people think because non-celiac gluten sensitivity (now called non-celiac wheat sensitivity) and a celiac both eat the same diet, that they are the same condition. Why bother with all the tests if you eat the same anyways? Because celiac… Continue reading »

Goddess Garden Sunscreen and Sun Repair

Gluten-Free Sunscreen + After Sun Repair with Goddess Garden

Living in Arizona, I’ve had to learn about sunscreen since I was little. Since we’re practically living on the surface of the sun, I’ve also had to learn about skin repair after bad sunburns.

Step Beyond Celiac 5K

Donate to Celiac and the Beast’s KC5K Step Beyond Celiac Fundraiser!

I rarely get a chance to raise money for celiac organizations. I used to do a fun auction around the holidays, and now I typically just donate a portion of the Ceilac and the Beast ad proceeds to the top three celiac organizations. But, that’s not as fun and as FUN-draiser, and I would love… Continue reading »

It's not a gluten allergy, it's a wheat allergy, celiac disease or non celiac gluten intolerance

No, You Don’t Have a Gluten Allergy

To start, before the haters come to comment away, this post is not about doubting your sensitivity to gluten. This post is all about nomenclature. No, you don’t have a gluten allergy. Why? Because that’s not a thing. Not a thing that has been proven by science by that name, that is. There are several… Continue reading »

prAna and Mambo Sprouts Sponsored Review

Pure Barre, prAna, and Hemp History Week

There are two main reasons why I love and support prAna – their commitment to sustainability and style. So when I had an opportunity to partner with Mambo Sprouts on a sponsored promotion with prAna – I had to say yes. Especially because with barre 3-5 days a week, I always need new workout wear and… Continue reading »
