So today I came across an amazing connection... Keratosis Pilaris and Celiacs share a strong link.  In fact, KP patients are found to have high levels of gluten anti-bodies in their system - meaning their bodies have been reacting to gluten even if they weren't diagnosed with Celiacs.  I've read many stories where people have Celiacs and KP - and eliminating gluten helps eliminate the chicken skin - me included.

Growing up I always had little bumps on my back of my arms and on my legs, didn't really think anything of it - that's just how I was.  They didn't itch they just, were.  My brother has this too, worse than me.  But I noticed once I started going GF, they started to lessen/disappear.  Now, almost 2 years gluten free - they're gone on my arms and I only have a small amount on my legs.  Yay for feeling great wearing shorts and t-shirts now!  If you're suffering - gluten may be the hidden culprit!

Find tons of stories here:

Chicken Skin

Interestingly enough, gluten could be tied to many more diseases/health issues.  This will be my next topic after some more research! :) Have an amazing sunny weekend!

Udi's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Wednesday!

I have been craving chocolate/anything sweet... but what's a girl [or guy] to do when you look around and see everyone eating glutenified [totally just made that word up] treats... you find some good ones you can eat!

I've recently discovered Udi's... I love their breads and decided I'd try their chocolate chip cookies [located in the refrigerated section in the bakery at my local store].  I brought some home and they are amazing.  Not only are they gluten-free but they are also soy and nut free too [bonus!].

Needless to say, they are amazing and definitely hit the spot for your sugar/chocolate chip craving, and you can be at ease knowing they won't hurt your tummy :]

I am going to try all of their other products when I can find them at my local store, next is pizza crust...

Hope you enjoy and I hope someone is out there that works at Udi because I just have to say, their products are amazing and I wish I had more at my store :]
