We’ve all been there: afraid to ask if something was gluten-free in a restaurant, embarrassed that others had to make special accommodations when having us over for dinner, a little scared to be “different”.
THAT STOPS TODAY! My amazing support system has helped make me at ease with the gluten-free Glutenista® that I am. No more will I look down in shame when I ask for gluten-free menus/products and neither should you!
Don’t forget that as a Glutenista®:
you are FABULOUS
you are SPECIAL
you DESERVE to be able to eat, without being poisoned!
And yes… you are TRENDY, “COOL” and part of a growing population according to many recent news articles.
Hold your head-up and stand tall when asking for gluten-free! Every time you ask (& maybe feel a little alone) know that you have the support of thousands on Glutenista.com® and millions across the U.S., helping you to have the courage to advocate for your health!
THANK YOU for your support!

The holiday season can feel incredibly overwhelming - parties to attend, presents to buy, cards to send, strained family relations that need addressing. Throw in trying to eat safely gluten-free at holiday parties & get-togethers and it's no surprise that Glutenistas may run around with a permanent furrowed brow! Glutenistas - change your view on it all!
Just like one of Glutenista's favorite iPhone apps, Hipstomatic, you can change your view to improve your 'tude. Remember a key phrase "Fake it Until You Make It" - you may not be feeling 100% positive , but eventually your fake positive attitude will turn into you naturally looking at things with a much rosier outlook!
Suddenly the parties become a celebration of friendship, being gluten-free becomes a blessing that makes you feel amazing (& prevent over-eating!), and you realize you are blessed to have your family present in your life. It's not the easiest choice to make, but this year be sure check the pity-party at the door this holiday season & celebrate the fabulous Glutenista that you are!
Oh, and don't forget to check back at Glutenista.com for easy, delish gluten-free holiday treats that you can bring to parties to ensure you have something fabulous to eat!
celebrate the season & scatter kindness
live your gluten-free life for YOU, not others
