We’re twin sisters living on opposite sides of the country. Katie lives in San Diego and Tracy lives in Wheeling, WV. We both love cooking, eating good food, and have been gluten free since January 2011!
And we like chocolate ice cream.
We are 23 years old and have dealt with headaches and migraines for about the past 8 years. We knew there had to be something triggering the migraines, but could never figure out what. We spent many hours googling for possible reasons. Finally in Dec 2010 Katie came across a website about how some migraine sufferers have gluten sensitivities. We decided we might as well give it a shot, and see if a gluten free diet changed anything.
To be honest, we thought this would be like any other diet we’ve tried (Tracy only managed to stay vegetarian for about 2 weeks..). Our favorite foods previously were bagels, bread, and pasta, how could we possibly not eat these things ever again? But 2 months later, our heads were feeling better than ever, we felt healthier, and we are loving trying new foods.
We created this blog to share our favorite GF recipes, review the GF products we try, document our journey in changing our lifestyles, and get support from other people with food sensitivities!
