Here at Gluten-Free Simplicity, it is super important that we ONLY provide information that is both Valid and Reliable.
Often, when someone begins to ask me in-depth questions about Gluten-Free Simplicity and Gluten-Free Living, I share with them how I learned that perhaps the most crucial element to successfully negotiating Celiac Disease is accepting that perhaps the most significant ingredient is information (i.e., What does and does not have gluten; where to get affordable gluten-free products; and/or how to think critically about important Gluten-Related information).
Giving bad information to a person with Celiac Disease is kind of like handing a glass of poisoned water to a person who is very thirsty. At G-FS, I don’t give you any Bull, and so I hope you won’t give me the horns.
And by the way… if by chance you ever run across any data on this site that seems like it cannot be right, send me a comment and I’ll triple check it.
Thanks for reading this blog.

From the Celiac Today tagline, one can read their meaningful goal: “News and Knowledge to Unite the Celiac Community”.
As one reads further, one will read, “Our Aim is the Unify the Community”. They mention several sections including: Medicine, Lifestyle, Community, Food Chain, and People, where one will find Celiac-related information. The site offers a bounty of information and best of all, it appears to be free.
This idea of “Unifying the community” also appears to be a wonderful and timely notion. My experience of the online Celiac crowd has been about 98% positive. At the same time, there have been one or two instances where it seemed that those with whom I was dealing had something in mind other than providing a truly diverse wealth of free information to anyone who needed it.
Anyway, I thought this site was worth mentioning and I hope you find it as interesting as I did. It really appears to contain a mountain of information.

Gluten-Fiction — Day 2
Posted by nepeht on November 13, 2009
Gluten-Free Fiction Date 001; Hour 01
I was just out of my doctor’s office. It seemed soooooo long ago, yet it was probably only a few moments to someone anywhere else. But I had arrived. Per my recent diagnosis, when leaving her office, I exited her doorway onto the Planet Glutenia! This is what I saw.
I wondered if I could breath… and I could. I was afraid to take those first steps. But I did.
My doc had said something about “Celiac Disease”…???
I wondered, “Am I a Celiac?” “What the heck is a Celiac?”
“Will I find more Celiacs here?”
I closed my eyes and tried to fall asleep, praying to have nice dreams… Perhaps I can wake up some day on a different planet that the one I just walked onto. Or even better — maybe I will learn to adjust and possibly I can learn to thrive as a free person…. a Gluten-Free person… on Glutenia.
More later… I hope.
