I was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue in 2008. It was such a relief to finally have an explanation for why I felt so lousy! By the time I was diagnosed, I had been sick for several years. I had developed such an aversion to food, I didn't feel that I was up to the task of really changing my diet. Every meal became a challenge. Eventually I just ate the same things over and over again. They were "safe" (meaning gluten-free) and yet they were boring! Over time I discovered a large selection of gluten-free foods on the market. My research online also revealed an entire community of gluten intolerant people just like me! So when I faced the decision of a new career, there was no question what I would do. It was time for me to open a gluten-free store. Our first store was in Everett, WA. We are now located exclusively in Woodinville, WA.
