Frustrated Celiac? Vigilant gluten-free eater yet STILL FEEL BAD? Missing Link…MTHFR?

Frustrated Celiac? Vigilant gluten-free eater yet STILL FEEL BAD? Missing Link…MTHFR?

If I had a dollar for every time some “desperate for answers” soul has asked me, ” WHEN WILL I FEEL BETTER?  I’M A VIGILANT GLUTEN FREE EATER SO WHY DO I STIL FEEL AWFUL!”, I would be a very rich lady. It makes me so very very sad that I cannot give them a clear answer. And it’s not because I don’t want to give them an answer. I do my best to go through their daily diet to see where they may be getting hidden gluten and discuss the necessity of giving up dairy and other possible allergens…

Celiac Awareness Tour, Media Madness And Jon Stewart

Celiac Awareness Tour, Media Madness And Jon Stewart

Well…it’s been a busy couple of months. The bakery, the new facility and the book tour has been crazy. I can officially say the Celiac Awareness Jennifer’s Way Book Tour is finally finished and wow what a ride. If you have followed along here then you know the trials and tribulations it took to get this book to the masses. From years of trying to convince publishers that a book like this was useful and not depressing (as many wanted a “happy ending” or a “wow you’re cured moment” or worse, celebrity tell all nonsense) to the insanity of trying…

For You - Believe it or not, my entire life I have ALWAYS felt like I just didn’t fit in exactly.  Never really fitting into the mold that was set out in front of me. In my young school years, I was made fun of for wanting to go explore the world and become an actress. As a young girl on my own, I was a hard worker and although I loved to have fun too, drugs and alcohol were not my thing.  Which again made me an outsider with certain groups. As an actor, I was told I was…

Jennifer’s Way…. My Gossip-Erotica Cookbook Memoir?

Jennifer’s Way…. My Gossip-Erotica Cookbook Memoir?

I write with a heavy heart today. In the last couple of years my every waking hour has been consumed with all things Celiac related. The years spent on this blog and social media trying to spread awareness, writing my recent book, my bakery, writing back to as many of you as I can, the new facility in Queens and of course dealing with the disease first hand has all been a lot to say the least. Especially owning and operating a bakery with my own money on absolutely no experience in this arena was a real tough one for…

A Cookie For Lauren – Grain Free, Gluten Free and Hope

A Cookie For Lauren – Grain Free, Gluten Free and Hope

With so much craziness going on lately I sometimes get pulled into the nonsense and get taken from my actual purpose here…to help. That’s all. I don’t wish to argue, beg or plead with anyone anymore for them to understand, have compassion, offer a few moments on their talk show or for a write up in their magazine. It’s become painfully obvious that some just do not want to hear about this disease and what I have to say about it. And then I remembered my new friend Lauren. One busy weekend I received a call from my friend who…

Conscious Unlistening – A Celiac Journey

Conscious Unlistening – A Celiac Journey

A few weeks back a big celebrity announced she and her husband would be “Consciously Uncoupling,” in laymens terms = divorce. The press went wild. I heard about this on the daily news, the nightly news, and the news in between. From celebrity news shows to primetime shows, somewhere sandwiched in-between “Where is the missing plane?” and the weather. I thought to myself, REALLY? Why is this so important? Who really cares how this person chooses to say something. While I personally couldn’t care less, I did care and notice how ridiculous it was to be getting so much press-…

Gluten Free Scam? Tell That to This Little Celiac

Gluten Free Scam? Tell That to This Little Celiac

Hi friends. Just because my blog has been down recently doesn’t mean my journey to make people aware of this disease has stopped. Actually quite the contrary, but I will share all of that at a later time. It also hasn’t gone unnoticed by me all the backlash this community gets regarding this disease. In the past few months gluten free eaters have been called DICK WADS (Jimmy Kimmel); had a pie thrown in the face of someone stating he was allergic to gluten as a skit (Jimmy Fallon); and more recently have been slammed when Dr. Oz said gluten…

Hello Friends!!!

Hello Friends!!!

Wow, SO much to catch up on!!! As many may know, I have been pretty busy finishing my book, baking away at the bakery and a BUNCH of other adventures that I cannot wait to share with you. All of which will benefit this wonderful community; a community that I dedicated my upcoming book to. It was this celiac community that extended a hand to grab when I was sinking deep into depression, worry, fear and loneliness. The burden from this disease was overwhelming to begin with but the fact the doctors, family and friends didn’t have the answers for…
