I’ve had the opportunity to taste a lot of gluten-free beers across the USA. When I was the editor for the largest gluten-free magazine in the country, I found myself on the road a lot. I was always speaking at conventions or on a trade show floor looking for what’s next in gluten free. Thankfully, I found some incredible gluten-free beer along the way. And yes, I have carried an entire suitcase full of gluten-free beer home with me on a plane. While there are several gluten-free beer brands out there, I’ve put together a list of my absolute favorites for you here at Celiac and the Beast. If y ..read more

I recently had endoscopic sinus surgery to relieve symptoms that I’ve been experiencing for a while. I spent so much of my time Googling the surgery (before and after the surgery) looking for answers to questions that I had. If you’re here, you’re probably looking into sinus surgery too! Why Did I Get Sinus Surgery? For about a year now I was getting sinus migraines, sinus pressure, pain and congestion I couldn’t relieve. I went to several board-certified allergists and they found nothing through multiple IgE and skin prick tests. They thought it could be nasal-specific non-allergic rhinitis ..read more

COVID-19 has ravaged the United States, along with the world, in 2020. Thankfully, in late 2020 and early 2021, the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines (two of them – Pfizer and Moderna) are finally making its way into our communities. There are probably two questions on your mind – first is it safe – period, and second, is is the COVID-19 vaccine safe for someone with celiac disease? Listen, I’m just a blogger. I’m not a doctor, but thankfully we have enough incredibly smart voices in the medical community that are linked throughout this post.

If you’re headed to the pacific northwest, don’t discount visiting Seattle! Over the past few years, Seattle has exploded in gluten-free bakeries, breweries, and bars. I’ve compiled a list from my visits of the best gluten-free restaurants in Seattle! However, with COVID-19, many gluten-free bakeries and restaurants have closed across the country. Seattle is no exception. In 2019 and 2020 we saw the close of Niche and Lucky Santo in Seattle. This was a devastating blow to the Pacific Northwest gluten-free scene. However, several strong gluten-free bakeries and restaurants stand strong in 2020 ..read more

I’ve traveled a lot across the USA and, because of my passion for carbs, I’ve tasted a lot of gluten-free bread. Sourdough is a hard thing to find once you go gluten-free. You’ve got to start with a gluten-free sourdough starter and put love, care (and more effort than I have time for) to cultivate the starter that brings this fermented, deliciousness to your bread. But there’s hope – there are lots of delicious sourdough breads out there!
