I was diagnosed with Celiacs in 2005. It had been a long road getting there and finally going gluten free. I was not the first member of my family to develop Celiacs — my sister beat me to it. In fact, she was the one who recognized the symptoms — that she had once fought for so long trying to get physicians to recognize — in me.

Luckily, recognition and acceptance of the disorder had become significantly more widespread in the meantime.  Living with Celiacs — or any other food intolerance or allergy — can be extremely difficult in a world geared towards general mass consumption. Luckily, recent years have opened up a myriad of options. And our options continue to expand.

The Boston area is no exception. Scores of restaurants now offer dining options and most grocery chains have a decent sized section for special diets. Many of these have a huge selection of options. This site will seek to explore our options and the associated issues.
