Hi there, thank you so much for joining me on my about page. My name is Liz and like thousands of others I’m ‘Coeliac by Design’. Fortunately thanks to the keen eye of my GP I was diagnosed with the condition in 2003.
Luckily for me, I have always loved food and still continue to do so – to be honest my day evolves around what I will eat or drink next. My love of food took me off to catering college, where I qualified as a chef, setting me in good stead for many of my future jobs; Cook in a hospital, Nursing home, Day Nursery and Customer support at Juvela gluten free foods.
Good things have happened since being diagnosed with coeliac disease and I really wouldn’t have it any other way now. One of the best things to happen, was having the opportunity to work for Juvela. Initially I got involved with them in 2005, helping out at events – and in 2010 it felt like I won a ‘gold ticket’ when I landed a full-time position within the office. I’ve loved my time there, learnt so much, and met and chatted to some lovely people at events and on the advice line. But, in 2017 I made a tough decision to leave – It wasn’t easy, but I felt that it was time for me to go ‘it alone’ to pursue my dream to write my own independent gluten free blog, to help raise more awareness about coeliac disease and share as much of my knowledge as possible, to help other’s get the maximum joy out of their gluten free diet. I still also continue to contribute to Juvela’s blog which I am delighted about!
So that’s me for now – I will stop chatting, there’s an AMAZING gluten free world out there – come on, let’s go and eat!!
