My journey to gluten free did not happen in one fell swoop. It was a process. A process I am still working on to this day. There are the obvious gluten containing foods but there are also many not so obvious. I went on a mission to discover how to find gluten free products, the easy way.

I was reminded how important it is to pay attention to ingredients in our personal care products when my husband broke out in hives after a shower and his lips began to swell. We know, from past experience, his lips swell after eating rosemary. Come to find out, Steve had used my shampoo as a body wash and, you guessed it, the shampoo had rosemary in it. Ugh! Steve took the medication he has on hand to reduce swelling and spent the day sleeping.
What you put ON your body matters!
