Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

September 13 is National Celiac Awareness Day!

Few people understand Celiac disease, yet it is prevalent! Following the recommended gluten-free diet is a trendy diet to strive for these days, even if you do not have the disease! 

Celiac disease is very difficult to diagnose, and many people spend quite a chunk of change to finally get the diagnosis! Once you receive the diagnosis, you will need to develop new healthy diet habits that support a gluten free diet! Do not give up, if progress in recovery seems slow. Healing is slow. Learn as much as you can about the disease. You will need to make major lifestyle solutions!

Find out more about Celiac Disease from Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits website!

September 13 is National Celiac Awareness Day!
