Celiac awareness and info for gluten-free living. They are not just for the month of May, which is Celiac Awareness Month, or a single day in September (Celiac Awareness Day is September 13).
We need celiac awareness and info for gluten-free living all year long so let’s keep it all going; shall we? This banner from Gluten-Free Respect states our “why” of course. (FYI: Click over to Debbie’s site and grab your own free banner and other awareness posters. Thank you, Debbie! Be sure to check out much more while you’re there, including her books, one her personal gluten-free story and the other two designed to educate those in a gluten-free child’s life to ensure they stay safe and happy. I recommend all!)
I especially want to keep awareness going as instead of posting frequently here on gfe during Celiac Awareness Month, I mostly took a long break after sharing two Cinco de Mayo posts with gluten-free Mexican-themed recipes (one new and one updated).
However, I did pop in at the start of the last week of the month to reshare the Top 10 Reasons To Live GFE. Because celiac awareness and information for gluten-free living go hand in hand.
Plus, throughout the month, I had the privilege of sharing so many terrific website articles and social media posts for celiac awareness and info for gluten-free living from my favorite gluten-free resources via my gfe Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Then I took a sweet little vacation—a much-needed one—to visit my sister and brother-in-law (here’s some photographic proof below). Now I’m ready to get back to gfe “work”!
I want to revisit some of the articles and posts from May with you because I know that not all of you follow social media or if you do, you may find it hard to keep up with everything. Believe me, I understand both! Plus, it’s sometimes easy to read something and then forget what you’ve read because you are trying to take in a lot of info at once and of course, you’re also juggling other aspects of life.
There really was a tremendous amount of excellent information shared last month. So much so that I can’t capture it in this post alone. That’s what we call a good problem, of course.
My dear friend Johnna (In Johnna’s Kitchen) outdid herself with a month-long series of what she called “mini posts” (aka quick reads) for Celiac Awareness Month. Every single one was outstanding. I guarantee that you will learn something new from this series—most likely several new things that will help you live gluten free.
The articles from this series that I shared on Facebook all got a big and positive response! I don’t want you to miss any of them so, here goes:

~ It Is Celiac, Not Celiacs (my note: It’s also not “celiac’s”!)
Again, all of these articles on celiac awareness and info on gluten-free living are well worth a read. And please do read them before commenting—either here or on Johnna’s site. Sometimes the content is not what you personally might expect based on the title. Meme-type posters can be terrific but they don’t always give you the complete picture. Read Johnna’s posts. Not necessarily all of them at once—perhaps a couple a day or a couple of them multiple times of day—but do read them because you will definitely benefit from them. Please let me and/or Johnna know what you think after reading. We love to hear from readers!
