Navigating the wheat free, gluten free diet

About

Taylor Provost is a 29-year-old graduate of the College of Journalism and Communications at the University of Florida.  She was diagnosed with Celiac Disease at 21 and has been on the hunt for the best gluten-free food out there ever since.  She enjoys finding and sharing gluten-free recipes with friends, scouring restaurants for the best gluten-free deals and meals, and making people aware of Celiac Disease and its effects using her journalistic background and reporting skills.

Taylor received a BA in English from UF in 2008 and a Master’s in Journalism on April 29, 2011.  In addition, she has experience writing for the Citrus County Chronicle in Crystal River, Fla., covering arrests, court cases, community events and business news.  This blog is her way of using her love of journalism to share with the world news, stories and tips about Celiac Disease and gluten intolerance.

About Celiac Disease

Celiac Disease is an autoimmune digestive disease that damages the villi of the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food triggered by the consumption of a protein called gluten. The term autoimmune basically means a person with CD’s body attacks itself when the person eats anything containing wheat, barley or rye, all of which contain gluten.

  1. Hi, Taylor,
    I like your blog! Very attractive and informative. I’m going to forward it to our former pastor, who has a gluten allergy and may also find it interesting. Hope all is going well with your studies and life at college!
    Love,
    Aunt Nancy
